Production numbers

Welcome to the forum Zog,

With 2 Pantera's what took you so long to find us!

The seats are most certainly not factory as there were no options on seats in 1973, all one style.

What do you mean by production numbers? Number of 1974 cars produce in orange? Or production specific to your car?

Well, As far as taking so long...... It has taken me a long time to get back, as I am now in my 50s and I owned a very low mileage orange 74 when I was 25 years old. I searched for an orange one for years and found one last year. As far as having two, I gave up on finding an orange one 2 years ago and bought a red one that I probably paid to much for.

I am trying to accretion production levels for the different colors for '74 production year, specifically orange. It was hard for me to find one and just wanted to know how many were produced? Thank you for responding! The red 73 is in ok shape with 50k miles, I might start racing this one. The orange has 25k miles and is in very original shape.
Actually, wasn't there something called "The Shortt List" of this type of data that was distributed via the POCA email server?

I'll do some research, and get back to you.

Actually, a guy named Michael Shortt (on the POCA email list) has something he calls the "Shortt List" that attempts to break out the quantities of vehicles by year and color.

I believe there is more info there as well..

Something like this....

> 1973
>
> 1,258 ALL Standard
>
> Cars Included

> S/N Build Release
> 4665 10/72 6/73
> 5048 12/72 8/73
> 5491 4/73 12/73
> 5906 7/73 5/74
> 5926 7/73 7/73
>
> 83 in April
> 185 in July
> 187 in October
> 113 in December
>
> 334 Yellow 26%
> 203 Orange 16%

This is all I found. Unfortunately there isn't a good way that I know to search the POCA email list.

That's because most of them were painted Ferrari Re-sale Red in the 80's and 90's. Same holds true with Lime Green cars.

I believe the Marti Reports have the data you're looking for. Check with Michael Shortt as Rocky recommended. He might have that info from some of the reports he's collected.

And lets see some pics of your cars.

Very nice. Orange may be my favorite color?
Bill,
Thank you for that information. I figured it had to be a small production run as it was hard to find one again. My first one was a gorgeous car, I sold it to a doctor in Phx (it was too much car for him, he had a couple of months) who in turn sold it to an engineer (I think) working out at Palo Verde Nuclear plant. The last I heard of it, I don't know where it went from there!
