Evaluation: Unrestored original | Represented as a three-owner Pantera with 29,977 actual miles and recent mechanical sorting. The engine was pulled and reconditioned after the car spent years in storage. The original paint is good but looks its age, with numerous chips and cracks, especially around the engine cover, and surface rust is poking through. Surface rust visible inside the doors at the bottom as well. Clean, original interior. Tidy underneath, with some oxidation and dirt, but no rot and maintained when necessary. A mostly good survivor.
Bottom Line: There are areas for concern on this car, particularly on the bodywork, but so many Panteras were cut up and modified that an original one is a rarity. The bidders didn’t seem to care, as this middling price is the usual rate for a tired Pantera.
