Hall Pantera's are repros. So are Pantera Parts Connection's. I have the ones from PPC and they are relatively close to the real thing, but not exact. The toolkits offered on eBay are invariably missing stuff, including the screwdrivers and window crank
The car collecting hobby is moving strongly to recognizing the rarity and historical value of survivor/original cars. Witness all the books and articles coming out lately on the subject (and the survivor/preservation classes now present at major car shows). I am happy to see more than a few Pantera owners that are going that direction too.
We only a small number of survivor Panteras left that have all (or most all) of their original interiors, paint, tires and wheels, engine,transmission, bumpers etc. What would you guys guess, less than 100 left?
My car is one of the lowest (documented) mileage cars I have seen (3100), but is missing several items. Low mileage, preserved,stock AND complete just seems like a worthwhile goal to me.
Chuck, could you post some pictures of your '74?
