Actually, that car is likely still in very good condition being stored in Arizona. It certainly has baked off all the paint and surface rust totally covers the car, but it is parked on concrete so the underside is likely solid and not badly rusted. 

 Unlike those that have been found in New England forests or southern marsh land this one will likely remain the same and not deteriorate year after year.

Someday it will be revived 🀞🀞

...When I See a 'Decklid' that sits 'Near' Perfectly Straight, It tells Me a Lot! The Car was Never in an Accident, and Nothing, The Chassis, has NOT SAGGED....More than Likely. And there's more.

This Pantera has a Lot of Potential. Put some Love and a Lot of work into Her, and You can Realize Your Dream! Take it Home, Tear it Apart, and clean Her Up.

He WON'T Sell !!? Put a 'Bundle', a Big Wad of CASH in Front of His Face! He'll Sell!!

P.S. That Split-Window Vette....One Could not Touch That for less than $150K-$250K , In My Opinion. Very Rare and Very Sought-After!

I will try working on him again 

Hes a retired engineer who has been letting both cars bake in sun with the rodents for last 40 yrs!

He also has 69 4 speed GTO in same repair!

A crazy man for sure! 😜😜

Are you going to have him arrested ?

Guys that have nice classic cars sitting around wasting away always intend to restore them someday. The truth is that they rarely every get around to doing it and the car is either not for sale or for sale at a ridiculously high price. Just wait until he dies and then hit the family up. I bet they will sell it just to get rid of it because I doubt that they will have the emotional attachment to it that the current owner has.

Did he mention what type of Engineer or where he worked?  Wonder if I know him

...I have been Thinking! And That could become Dangerous!

If One were to Own this Pantera, Fix it, Clean it; But leave the 'Surface' Rust Intact. And They were to Wax and Polished the Rust, They could be the Proud Owners of the Worlds' Very First, Pantera 'Rat-Rod'!! The 'Rat-Rodders' would Absolutely Go Nuts over this Thing! Wax the Rust, that's what They Do. Love It!!

Just Sayin'
