1971 De Tomaso Pantera, a sports automobile in advance of its time

“As you skim more than the pavement in the Pantera you cannot support emotion smug,” wrote Motor vehicle & Driver journal in August 1971 when Ford teamed up with Italian auto manufacture De Tomaso Automobili to generate the unique Pantera in the U.S.

“You listen to the engine rumbling along from its station back by your shoulder blades – a mechanical arrangement even novitiate automotive visionaries will identify as a little piece of tomorrow right now. And the appears to be. Oh wow – like a little something that just rolled out of the Turin Display.”

The Decide of the Working day is a 1971 De Tomaso Pantera with just about 34,000 miles on its odometer and sporting a Verde Environmentally friendly color above a black inside. It is presented on ClassicCars.com by a seller in Salt Lake Town, Utah.
