Approximately a year later the first production Panteras were sold, and production was increased to three per day. This Pantera is powered by a rebuilt Ford 351 cu in (5.8 L) V8 engine producing a 330 HP.
The 351 Cleveland Engine and ZF Transaxle have been rebuilt and a new Clutch has been installed. It runs cool, too. This car simply runs and drives very well.
An interesting point is the Pantera logo included a version of Argentina’s flag turned on its side with a T-shaped symbol that was the brand used by De Tomaso’s Argentinian cattle ranching ancestors. The car debuted in Modena in March 1970 and was presented at the 1970 New York Motor Show a few weeks later. Approximately a year later the first production Panteras were sold, and production was increased to three per day.
