Evaluation: Lovely paint and chrome other than some masking issues around the windshield. Like-new wheels and tires. Like-new interior as well. Not a ton of history represented, but above average condition for a Pantera, and even though you often see these in loud ‘70s shades of orange or yellow, it also looks properly sinister in black. It’s a solid pre-L model Pantera that isn’t 100% stock, but also avoided being cut up and slapped with wings and flares like so many other ones out there.
Bottom line: They’re less affordable these days, but Panteras still make a whole lot of sense for people who love wedgey Italian supercars but would rather not pay Ferrari/Maserati/Lamborghini shop bills. This one sold for $110,000 at Mecum Indy this year. Getting $121,000 in Monterey sounds like decent appreciation for just three months, but factoring in fees the whole thing is pretty much a wash. And it’s not like anyone actually enjoyed this car in the meantime. Since we last saw it in May its odometer shows just 1 more mile, likely on and off transport trucks.
