The car was designed by the Italian design firm Ghia by US-born designer Tom Tjaarda and replace De Tomaso Mangusta. Unlike the Mangusta, steel structure used in the spine, and it was Ford Pantera’s unilateral steel design, primarily from the De Tomaso using this technique construction.
Ford Pantera logo and included a copy of the Argentine flag turned on its side with the icon on the T-shaped, which was the brand used by cattle Di Tommaso of Argentine cattle grandparents. Note: The logo has the colors of the Argentine flag not because grandparents Di Tommaso, but the company’s founder, Alejandro de Tomaso, was born and raised in Argentina.
He emigrated in the 20S him to Italy in order to avoid political persecution of Juan Domingo Peron, president of Argentina in those days. The car debut year in Modena in March 1970 and presented at the New York Auto Show in 1970 after a few weeks. After nearly a year of the first production Ford Panteras were sold, and increase production to three per day.
It has been replaced by a strange slice seats backed attracted comment in the New York presentation by the largest number of seats sports car body traditional and hugging in automobile production: The leg generous room but is expected outside the pedals The headroom is sufficient for drivers over nearly 6 feet. (About 183 cm) tall.
Reflect the ambitions of its makers, “Atlantic, Ford Pantera and came up with an abundance of standard features that appeared strange in Europe, such as electric windows, air conditioning, and even the “doors that bang when open.” By the time we got Ford Pantera production, was home in most respects rank well, although the arm resting on the central console that can lead to inadvertent activation of cigarettes is bad lighter.
It operates the first 1971 Ford Panteras by Ford 351 cubic meters a V8 engine (5.8 liters), which severely underrated produced 330 hp (246 kW, 335 PS). Dynos stock proved over the years that power was more along the lines of approximately 380 hp (283 kW, 385 PS). High torque provided by Ford Motor reduce the need for excessive equipment change at low speeds: this made the car much less demanding to drive in urban conditions than many of the locally built competitor products.
ZF transaxle used in the Mangusta was also used to Ford Pantera: passengers recorded in the early Ford Pantera that the mechanical noise emanating from the axis was more intrusive engine noise restraint well. Another Italian car to participate in the axis of ZF is the Maserati Bora, also launched in 1971, although not yet available for sale.

You have to prove yourself to these axioms. A look at the missing $10,000 Mercedes 280 SL, Porsche 911 and Jaguar V-12.The models tested, sometimes for years before the first models rolled off the assembly line. No mistakes allowed. On the other end of the spectrum, look at the company, such as Peter Monteverdi, who only had to build a dozen or so of a certain model year, and this uniqueness allows him to work in the sale of some models of more than $25,000 each.
There is a fleet of test vehicles orbiting the Earth Monteverdi prove in a high place in the Swiss Alps, and do not expect to see every body dropped in a large pot of lotion against rust as it comes off the assembly line. In fact, do not even find two alike expect it to be improvements in every vehicle of success when it becomes obvious need. In this work, and the low volume of construction does just what seems right at the time, customers demand method instead of perfection and pay top dollar for it.
Now there are exceptions to this whole scheme. There are a few cars that are $fragile proposals from any angle of 8000, while in the upper reaches of some manufacturers to experience a Ferrari, for example, build a sound automobiles. How Ford Pantera does not fit in this debate?
Right at the top: It’s both excitement and good ratings because until now, you had to pay $25,000 for, and they are folded in the package $10,000. It is one hell of a deal if that happens to be what you are looking for. This, friends, neighbors, is the Ford Pantera story in one capsule, from this point and we are dealing in variations on this example, the subject line, as equated division excitement car with uniqueness, equivalent to Ford Pantera to taper off rather more quickly if it were, say, a Ferrari.
Which dates back to price $10,000 these days, even bellhop frugal can scrape enough money from the front of the car $10,000. The reason is a very low price is that Lincoln Mercury plans to sell in 2500 at least Ford Panteras first year and somewhere around 12,000 to 15,000 before it is phased out of production in 1974 (at least in the US).
