The paint on this Pantera is unreal. Did it make it to the Nationals? The Pantera De Tomaso, designed by Tom Tjaarda is a timeless, early American Supercar.
Ilene and Ken F. set out to build a beautiful 1972 Pantera Pre-L car. This Pantera De Tomaso was under the gun to compete in the National Street Rod Associations, “Elite Builders Showcase” at the “Street Rod Nationals” in Louisville Kentucky last month.
This Pantera is painted with PPG paints following the “PPG Custom Restoration Guidelines.”
