  • Auction: 6th Dec 2017 - RM Auctions - New York, Icons

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' New York - ICONS event, 6 December 2017. Estimates:$125,000 - $175,000 No student of automotive history can deny Ford Motor Company president Lee Iacocca (the father of the Mustang) got things done the way that he wanted. He was a man who fostered bold new ideas and had the clout to turn them into reality. Among his wildest notions was that of a mid-engine supercar that could be sold by a Ford dealer, cooked into being with his great friend and former Argentinean racing driver Alejandro de Tomaso, in a storied collaboration with noted sports car designer Tom Tjaarda on behalf of respected Italian coachbuilder Ghia.The resulting De Tomaso Pantera was built in Italy but sold largely through Lincoln-Mercury dealers in the United States with a full factory warranty. It combined the dead-reliable 351 Cleveland V-8 and American-style comfortsincluding power windows and air conditioningwith such European performance features as a ZF transaxle,power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes, and rack-and-pinion steering. Simply put, it was the best of all possible sports car worlds and it cost considerably less than a comparable Ferrari or Lamborghini.Several different variations of the Pantera were produced over the years. The one that Americans instantly recognize is the second-generation Pantera L, or Lusso (Luxury), which incorporated several detail changes for the U.S. market. Most notably, the Pantera L was significantly better built than earlier examples, a fact recognized and lauded by the automotive press of the time.Today, the Pantera is widely heralded as the improbable idea that both Detroit and Turin got right and as one of the definitive and instantly recognizable supercars of the decade that birthed the category.THE EXECUTIVES PANTERAAccording to its knowledgeable expert owner, the Pantera L offered here was a Ford Motor Company test car that was subsequently sold to an executive out the back door. It later spent many years with twocollectors, the last of whom used it very sparingly and only in the summer, before it joined the consignors collection.The car was found to be remarkably and impressively original, including its Pantera Orange finish, the factory interior down to the carpets (protected since new by sisal mats), and even the four original Goodyear Arriva tires. As one of the former owners had scuffed the front end and installed a GTS emblem where it did not belong, the decision was made to selectively repaint the nose and front lid; however, such was the fine condition of the original paint that the new finish blends seamlessly. Similarly, a former owner still had the perfect set of original Campagnolo wheels that had come on the car still in his garage; a deal was made and they were refitted to the car, virtually new.The consignor sorted the car mechanically, including re-sleeving the original brake master cylinder and rebuilding the brake calipers and clutch cylinders, while choosing to leave in place theEdelbrock intake and Holley carburetor installed by the original Ford executive owner. Ron Davis Radiators produced a new aluminum radiator, a faithful duplicate to replace the original, along with a new aluminum water pump to ensure cool running, plus fresh hoses and belts for turnkey reliability. Period Ziebart undercoating and winter storage from new had protected the undercarriage, although the current owner elected to remove the Ziebart application and duplicate its original factory-style satin black finish in the refreshed engine bay.Accompanying the car are its set of original Arriva tires, a factory tool kit, original books and manuals, spare tire, air canister, and luggage tray.Still with fewer than 13,000 actual miles, this car perfectly balances superb, well-maintained originality with the subtle late-model improvements knowledgeable Pantera owners expect and respect. It can confidently lay claim as one of the most original of its kind and one of the few that will allow a new owner toexperience that same magic conjured by the revolutionary new idea available at your local Lincoln-Mercury dealer in 1973.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/NY17.

1971 DeTomaso Pantera 'Pulsante' (The Hawaii 5-0 Car) for sale in London (LHD) Appeared in the hit TV showHawaii 5-0 1 of only 75 delivered new to America Just 2 former owners until 2014 Beautiful, unmolested and in superb original condition Tour Auto successful entrant There can't be many Italian supercars that have been owned by two Police Officers in Hawaii, but this one certainly has. Originally purchased by Hawaiian policeman George Frain in 1971, he kept the car for thirty five years before selling it to his friend and fellow policeman, Dennis Yogi, in 2006. One of very few remaining 'first execution' Panteras, known as 'Pulsante' or push-button cars, in reference to the push button door handles carried over from the De Tomaso Mangusta, the embryo of the Pantera. These early Pantera/s were the only fully hand-built examples, assembled by Vignale Carrozzeria in Modena, with 75 being delivered into the United States to 'test the water', prior to being put into series production. Importantly,this car was one of the two Pantera's used in one of the most watched television series in the World at the time 'Hawaii 5-0', where the car appeared in the episode - Death Wish on Tantalus Mountain' (season 5, episode 2). The first car was yellow and is now in Sweden where it has been heavily modified, therefore this car, chassis number #1365, is the only Pantera from the series that retains its original configuration. In the episode, released in 1972, Ricardo Montalbano plays Alex Pareno, a wealthy auto-racing enthusiast whose mechanic is slain on the eve of Hawaii's most important road race. The TV production company needed a racecar in Hawaii and the first owner, George Frain, was happy to oblige. Mr Frain actually drove the car in the show as a stand-in for Ricardo Montalbano who had actually been injured prior to the shoot, so Mr Frain donned Ricardo's race suit and helmet, appearing in many of the still shots as well. A Pantera model in unmolested and original configuration is now very rarein itself, but one with a starring TV role and two previous owners must be a unique opportunity. The car comes equipped with many rare features including single slot magnesium Campagnolo wheels with the De Tomaso 'T' logo on each wheel nut, a flat rear engine cover (all the later cars incorporated a raised rib in the centre) and De Tomaso, not Ford emblems. There are also a number of small details and touches that make this car truly special such as the hand made bumpers with square ends, the relief pattern ashtray cover and one piece side window chrome (carried over from the Mangusta). With only two owners from new until 2014, this is an amazing example of a very rare, handbuilt, unmodified, push button' Pantera in its original Tom Tjaarda design. This stunning car isready to drive. Now available for viewing at the DD Classics Dealership in London, please call 0208 878 3355for further information. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the above information but errors may occur.Please check with a salesperson.
