Pantera Project

The car was completely disassembled, every nut and bolt taken off cleaned and sand blasted. Body was stripped, engine compartment, wheel wells and trunk were sprayed with Wurth stone guard and painted black. The body has been painted white with PPG base coat clear coat, wet sanded and polished. The hood and deck lid was painted black PPG base coat with satin clear. The side marker lights were removed and sheet metal was welded in its place.

Original engine, 351 CJ 4 bolt main bolt, needs to be assembled. New forged pistons, bearing kit, the block and heads have been magnifluxed (spelling?) for cracks. The engine was put back in the car to make transporting the car easier.

Interior for the most part is clean, the top of the dashboard which has 4-5 cracks in it. The windshield is just laid in place not installed, to make the dashboard repair easier. Carpet is in okay condition and the car does not have a head liner.

All the suspension parts were cleaned and sand blasted, then POR-15 gloss black, polyurethane bushings were installed in the front and I have the polyurethane bushings for the rear.

19X14 rear rims, 27X14X19 rear tires, 16X11 front rims and 23X11X16 rear tires, car also come with Good Year racing slicks 27X14X19 and 23X11X16.

The car is all stock had 52,XXX before restoration started.

$37,500.00 with rims and tires
$34,500.00 with out rims and tires

Please PM me with any questions.

Chris, go to the "New tab at the top of your first post and follow the steps outlined. I'm not sure if it will add the photos to your original post or initiate a new one, but you can always cross reference. I just completed my first album; it is painless!

where is the car ? are you interested in any trades ?

The car is in Houston, alot of people have offered trades, I would prefer to just sell the car.

This car is beautiful, top to bottom. How many 30 year old cars will come apart like a new car. There's not any rust on anything on the car all the nuts and bolts spin on and off by hand.

This is a Pantera that you need to buy a set of rims and tires, how many cars do you see that have you like but are not crazy about the rims and tires the owner has picked.

And an engine, either build the one that comes with the car or buy one (which is what I would recommend), It's a 351 Cleveland, for $2,000.00 you can buy a really strong running engine.

Add some of your own labor and you could own a Pantera that has been fully restored for under $35,000.00.

I'm open to offers on either car or I would make a package deal on both cars, just PM me. I've been looking at cars that are for sale and they are all over the map. Pictures do not do my cars justice, both have show quality paint jobs. My person experience with pictures is that they make sh*tty paint jobs look good and great paint jobs look good.

The receipts I have for the parts that are on the blue car are around $100,000.00. The car is basically new, but it still need shocks, I haven't even put brake fluid in the car.

I know I'm going to take huge loss on both car, but I would consider any reasonable offer.

A friend of mine put it best, anyone that says they have a nice car than you, will be taking a bigger loss the day they sell it. Frowner
