I have placed some statistics on the cover page.
Very interesting to see it in that format. Thanks for all your hard work!
This represents all of the VINs that have been captured so far? How does it compare to production numbers? About half? Great to see so many. Thanks for doing this.
Are any of the numbers in the 2nd table included in the numbers in the 1st table? For example, are any of the USA GTS or EURO GTS numbers included in the 1973 or 1974 numbers for Panteras in the 1st table?
The second table is unique. A GTS is not included in the 1973 L model group.
Yes this is the a summary total of what is in the registry, by group.
Of the 401 Mangusta built, the registry has data on 309.
309/401 = approximately 77%
Of the 150 USA Pantera GTS made, the registry has 132.
132/150 = approximately 88%.
Of the 41 Pantera Si there is data on 35. 35/41 = approximately 85%.
Like any data set in statistics some adjustments need to be included.
I think there is a 'test' entry. It might be a Mangusta, so the number would go down by 1.
A couple of owners have entered there car under two different VINs.
If the second VIN did not already have content, it might be a duplicate, thus inaccurately increasing the number of cars in the registry by 1.
Take the GT5 model, your nom de guerre, the registry has data on 148 cars.
148/ ??? (total produced) = ? %
We really do not know for sure exactly how many were made. Much has been discussed about this, and George Pence and others have done a great job mathematically reducing the likely range of total cars produced by model.
So run your own calculations.
If I get more time for creating statistics...
There is a discussion of the total production numbers of the different variants of 9000 series Panteras, as well as a great analysis by George Pence of the GT4, Gr3, GTS/4, GTS, GTS/4 variant evolutions, on the following thread:
By my count the maximum possible number of GT5-S Panteras that could have been produced is 183 as opposed to 197 for the GT5.
I believe I have the last or second to last GTS imported by ford. #7234..anyone have info on this. Thanks, mike mayberry.
