It appears the population of Pantera is quite small in Canada. I am looking for a Canadian vehicle to reduce the number of issues related to purchase.

Thwere is now a nice modified Canedian Pantera on BaT .
@TedG where in Canada are you located?
David is one of the most knowledgeable, technically expert Pantera people I have come across in the 20 years I have been involved in the De Tomaso community. This car is his labour of love that he has been perfecting for many, many years. I'm sorry to see him selling it - the amount of thought, research and perfectionism that has gone into it is simply on another level. To reproduce it would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, if it were even possible.
Yes, I can confirm this is David Nunn’s Pantera.
Thank you-I thought the the based on the credits on some of the images.
Ted I am in Alberta and grew up in Saskatchewan there is a yellow and black 73 I saw at the Warmen car show. It needed some work, if I recall it was a transition car with a dual pod dash but could be wrong. I am unsure if it was the owner or a friend that had it there. The name was Glen Nystuen from Saskatoon. Someone had reupholstered the seats and they had yellow piping on them. I had seen it at a couple car shows in the summer. It might be a lead that is close to you to look into.
Also there was this one that failed to sell from Calgary on BAT awhile back. BAT might be able to put you in contact with the seller. It was member @ea3528 on here, but they have not been active on here for a period of time. I should add that he was moving further west to Kelowna.
David's car is gorgeous. Looks extremely well engineered. Great attention to detail. I'm thinking $180k.
Erik's car. 3528 was sold last year and went to California.
Dave Nunn's car is amongst the very best of the breed!!
Thanks for the assistance!
All prices on BAT are in USD. $185 cdn would only be around $135 us. For such a well done car I would love to see David get much much more. Hopefully some active bidders that recognize how special this car is. It would be great to see the price on well done narrow bodies take off.
What are you looking for and budget? My '81 GT5 was imported to Canada when I lived in Calgary, duties paid and I have all the paperwork, I can't imagine there would be much needed to get it back across the border.
I believe the issue is wether your vehicle is still “stock” as per its emissions manufacture tag. I believe it is the “improved” cars that may have import problems.
Hey- I just imported a 1974 from Colorado to BC. It was not an issue at all, at least for BC. Safety inspection required, but no emissions. There's also a federal import form and a US export form, but neither was problematic at all. I'm not sure if Sask has emissions testing for older cars but BC does not.
I am very pleased to hear that. Any emissions restrictions will be federal. Sask only requires the safety and our tax on used cars.
I keep reading about a federal exemption for cars 25 years old and older. Maybe this is what they are talking about. The import information provided by the Feds does not specify Exempt “from what??”
I have imported Motorhomes without any trouble. Access to the US market provides a much better selection.
25 years for the US, but it was always 15 years for Canada, where the exemption applies to meeting federal requirements i.e. less than 15 years must be on the list of RIV approved vehicles. Even +15 year old kit cars are allowed to enter if one can prove date of first registration.
Thank you for your comments joules. I don’t have a particular budget for a vehicle. I am looking for a vehicle to enjoy with minimal grief. If you are planning to sell your GT5 send me the details.
something developed as much a David Muni’s car is very interesting and I am following the auction closely
Ted, I hope you are active in the bidding today, because even with the $ conversion David's car is still a great buy for the car that is there. Good luck.
