I have long watched and read posts here, and even owned and previously had restored another ‘71 Pantera. My first car was returned to stock, and ultimately sold on due to an offer I couldn’t refuse. After missing that car, I decided to start anew ...sort of. This project was in the custody of PIM, in Orange, CA. It was missing its motor, but hands its original trans. Most parts were there, but were covered in several repaints. Jerry at PIM rebuilt me a 351 Cleveland of early Pantera origin, along with rebuilding the tranny, the cooling system, and modernizing the a/c system. However, EVERYTHING else needs attention.
This is how it arrived, ridiculous wing and all.
interior isn’t too bad, though it smells worse than it looks.
