Pantera push button 1006

Pix on ProvaMo (a few).

He wanted 6 figures several years ago (2011), one can only assume that the price has gone up.

It seems like a person would want to present their exclusive car in a very satisfactory light if a person was serious about getting top dollar, by providing lots of recent pictures, and a sexy description at least....

When it came time to obtain a Marti report on my PB, I was told that one could not be produced. I may be wrong but the PB line was a European pre series even for the ones (as mine is) later in the run that has US specs. This is so early and first sold to Italy that most likely would not have one available.
Marti reports are based upon Ford documentation. For a Marti report to exist the car would have had to been imported to North America by Ford and sold as a new car at a Lincoln/Mercury dealership. This car was imported privately to America (Houston if I remember correctly) in the 1980s.

The Pantera with the lowest chassis number imported by Ford was 1286, this is well documented. The last time I investigated Chuck's data, the chassis number of the first non-push button Pantera fell between chassis 1384 and 1386. I would expect Kevin Marti to be capable of producing reports for all North American imports beginning with 1286, but not earlier. That is only my expectation … which may not coincide with reality.

Find the Image File on Your Computer and Click on it.

To make them easy to find I normally place the images I plan to upload on the desk top. The Image File must be 300 KB or less.

Add at least one word of text, there must be text. Something like "pic #1" works.

The alternative is to email your pic/pics to me, I'll upload it/them for you.

So number #1006 makes it not a penny more worth then #1211 or #1088.
It is a production run car, not a prototype with the magic seats, so no secret about it. OK, maybe put $1000 on top of it for the early number if someone really cares.
The price for #1006 in excellent condition is $95.000.
My opinion.
95 grand for a un modified 20 k miles earliest push button with prototype options no other car has with all documents dating back to Modena I'll buy it from myself for 95 grand lol. Richard from monkey car garage offered me more. And that was over 4 years ago. I want to see if there are any European push buttons out there for sale I think the first 75 are euro not sure but it's hard for me to find another car out there to compare too the president of poca told me my car it depends on what the collector wants to pay to have the earliest in his collection. And I disagree with u on 1006 is same value as Later vins. But what do I know I know nothing about pantera I know I'm listed first on the registery I seen my name on it like 8 years ago. Anyway I'm not in desperate need to sell it we had it since 1991 my dad bought it then I got it if I don't get a good price I'll just keep it another 27 years. But it would be nice to know what other European push buttons are selling for that are orig and. Any one that wants pics can text me I tried to upload pics and it say I can't upload it jmp. I not sure why it say I can't upload jmp what does this mean jpg.
To see European Pantera's you just need to search European sites;

There's currently one PB in Austria for sale EUR120K another in Italy EUR185K and one more in Begium EUR175K. Those of course are asking prices, it's hard to find documented sales prices.

Personally I wouldn't put much credence to anything Richard Rawlings says or does and 4 years ago was probably a high in the market, it has softened of late.

You are better off deciding what you are happy letting it go for and just posting a price and save a bunch of posts you think are insulting. If you are just fishing for a fat cat with deep pockets, take it to auction and set a minimum reserve, we all spent our money already! Big Grin

Steve, I don't think it will sell at that price. Not even close. If I had that much money to spend I would buy a Mangusta instead. I think it has the potential to maintain its value over the push button.


Agreed on investment potential, but you'll be really lucky to find a Mangusta for that money any more, add at least another $100K
I bought mine in 2016 in Italy from 2nd owner - #1173 - for 230.000,00€
It is an unmodified and highly original, very well restored, very well driving car !!! I did get a 2nd set of wheels. I think for this early PB Pantera, the price is still correct : you don't find them very often in original condition, most are molested (especially US cars, unfortunately).

My car IS NOT FOR SALE !!

I am not sure if this is a general view, personal take when it comes to Panteras is that it's hard to use the term "molesting" - they're highly individualized cars and reflect the love of and commitment for long term ownership of those who care for them. Fashions through the years admittedly dictated some changes. If veering from original made for molesting the case, the factory was first in line to reflect this. I went often to the factory while growing up in Italy, there was a fair amount of modifications (upgrades) promoted through the years, the engines, the brakes, steering column, hood vents, etc. That they command a high price if fully original is true for Europe as of the last few years - may be here too, yours is truly stunningly done but a higher price should, I think, more reflect the great work done by the restoring artisans than anything else. I have a 3/ 71 built PB - US version, untouched from original and extensively gone through/ fastidiously maintained mechanically for dependability, but I agree with others that originality is not a sine qua non to consider when purchasing these cars - may add some but not that dramatically high a premium. It seems as I followed these cars through the years that it became a recent fashion more than mechanical culture to own original models for those who won't drive these cars only and will head into collecting.


For as much as you indicate cost, I will sale mine any day and buy a GTS.......

Unmodified? What about the hood vents in this picture from Facebook, posted about 2 or 3 years ago?

The cowboy offered to post pictures for you, no excuse for no pictures. I suspect the car isn't in 6 figure condition.

I find your early Pantera really interesting, and I think it’s more valuable because it’s a prototype. But you say it’s unmodified, when it sure is not. Question is, who did it and is the changes documented?
What I would really like to know is; what year is your documents dating back to Modena? I suspect, as for my own #01025, that DeTomaso brought it back from the backyard and sold it as new in 73/74.
Hi Espen-

The history is on ProvaMo.... I don’t think it’s history is like your car’s... it seems to have been sold early in Italy.

There is a picture of a red car, and obvious pix of the car being repainted yellow ( the fastest color and Alejandro’s favorite).

I think it’s a very interesting car, with a well documented original provance.... at least through the initial owners, but there is not much available on ProvaMo regarding the car’s later history....

Hi Chuck,
I have read the registry entry. You’re probably right. And if the seller wants top dollar based on history this is essential information.
Nothing wrong about updating or modifying, but for the interest of history it’s fun to see how the first Panteras were made.
