1973 Pantera THPNNA05912
29695 Miles, Location Pinehurst, North Carolina

Complete car, as original as time will allow. Still has original front tires, ARRIVA Goodyears

The car has had little driving activity during the last 6 to 7 years, thus I have invested a lot of effort, time, and expense in returning the car to the best running condition I can. The following is a little info, good and actual.

Paint is original, cared for and protected, but has aged accordingly. Only a minor small ding / paint chip on the body, nothing major, which occurred during the work project just completed. Basically rust free - No rust on any suspension part or system, frame, floor pans, finder wells, or body. Interior is in good (fair) condition. Left seat has tear where shoulder seat belt has rubbed. The seat itself is in good condition, padding not deteriorated any at all. This will require attention. The right seat, carpet, dash, door panels, etc, all good. The car is strong in all other respects, just showing time with cosmetic issues related to age which can be expected.

I purchased the car in 1978 from a private source in Torrance, Ca., with 13000 plus/minus miles. It has been car covered and garaged since I purchased it. Since I have owned it, only driven in the rain one time, and that was during a trip in the middle of Idaho and could not be avoided. The car has had the very best of care, however, little driving activity during the last 6 to 7 years, thus my effort in the recent project to return the car ot the best running condition I can. . It will make for a good driving car or a project base to ultimately turn a good show product. Asking $36,700 as is, where is,.

Here are a few pictures taken along the project cycle, and the condition (not cleaned) of the automobile today. As soon as the car is cleaned up, I will post some additional at:
