Designed by American Tom Tjaarda at Ghia in Turin, Italy, and powered by a 351 Cleveland V-8, the mid-engined DeTomaso Pantera was sold through Lincoln-Mercury dealers as an exotic Italian sports car with a Detroit V-8 heart. Evolutionary changes along its short American history culminated in the special GTS package late in the production run. This 1974 DeTomaso Pantera GTS is one of just 97 produced for the U.S.-market and has just 9,012 original miles on the odometer. The Pantera GTS comes with its original owner’s manual and books, Ownercard, tool kit and miscellaneous records. With a major engine service performed in 2015 by Pantera Miami, the 351 CI Ford Cleveland V-8 stands ready to meet or exceed its factory-rated 266 HP and 301 lb-ft of torque with single 4-barrel carburetor fed by a new stainless-steel fuel tank. The engine is backed by a ZF 5-speed manual transmission purpose-built for the Pantera with an updated clutch and brake hydraulics for smooth engagements and assured 4-wheel vented disc-brake stops. Independent unequal length A-arm suspension with front and rear anti-sway bars works with rack-and-pinion steering for supercar-level road control. American-market Pantera GTS left DeTomaso with wider-than-stock wheels, a blacked-out hood and decklid, rivet-mount fender flares, sport steering wheel and rocker-panel graphics. A removable rear-window louver accents the base/clear-coat black and red paint on the monocoque body. Electric windows and air conditioning add luxury to sport in the ’70s-perfect interior, and a 200 MPH speedometer and 8,000 RPM tachometer are ready to gauge 6-second 0-60 MPH launches and the Pantera’s 150 MPH top speed. The Pantera GTS rolls on Goodyear Arriva tires mounted on date-coded 15×9-inch rear and 15×8-inch front Campagnolo aluminum-alloy wheels with a never-deployed spare in its factory-issue location.
