VW Kombi Van Seeing Resurgence in Popularity

Classic Car Overview

This Pantera was commissioned by Ford Motor Company in 1971 and built by De Tomaso in Modena, Italy. The car bears serial number 1791, making it one of the last Panteras produced that year. In 1998 the car underwent a complete restoration by Brian Graham of Graham Tool and Pantera Parts in California. The body was media blasted and any repairs were completed in steel, including the Group 4 style fender flares. Both the paint and interior were completed at that time. The restoration was inspired by the Group 4 race cars that De Tomaso built and campaigned in the 1970s. Power comes from an original 351 Cleveland block which was completely rebuilt by Clayton Racing Engines out of Carol Stream, Illinois in 2009.
