1973 Pantera Speed Yellow with late year 1974 dash from factory (DeTomaso factory production line was known to use prior/post year parts during production).

Pantera was purchased February 1991 with 46,000 miles from Tom Ricks Ford, Michigan, which kept the car as a showroom display. Original 351 Cleveland Engine #04490,

Vin # TH PNNM05410 with original 5-speed ZF transaxle and listed in Pantera Registry. The car currently has 47,751 miles. Always inside storage for the 24-years of current ownership with the past 5 years being stored in the Sarasota Car Museum, and only driven to local shows and car cruise-ins.

The car was repainted in yellow lacquer (original factory color) in 1991 and recently had a complete paint-detail that involved a hand wet-sanding followed by a super wax job (one week of hand work) and also had the two rear spoilers re-sprayed with satin black. The car shows very nicely. The car has a solid rust-free body as evidenced by the lack of paint imperfections during the 24 years since its repaint.

The engine was rebuilt in March 1995 by: Powered by Ford (Orlando, FL). Since the rebuild, this car has traveled only 500 miles. 130 of that was to drive the car back from Orlando to Sarasota, the rest was taking the car to shows and public display.

Powered By Ford is the nation’s leading expert on small-block Ford racing engines.
