We are delighted to offer this incredibly rare original RHD, low mileage De Tomaso Pantera GTS onto the market. Research tells us in late 2018 just 44 (mainly LHD cars) were on the road in the UK, 20 on SORN and very few original RHD cars were ever built making this an incredibly sought-after vehicle. This example has covered just 33,000 miles from new and from sale documentation in 2009 we are told this was the De Tomaso used for the Earls Court Motor Show in 1973. This very special car was registered TGX 37M on the 6th November 1973, had one owner for 29 years and has had just three owners from new, all in the UK.
Fitted with the 350BHP Cleveland Ford 5.7 V8 engine and five speed ZF gearbox, the Pantera is a very correct car and comes to us with an extensive history file with MOT certificates dating back to 1986 when the mileage was 19195. The first registered owner was W & J Barrs Ltd, Building Contractors in North London and the car was transferred from the Company to Mr Barrs himself in 1992. Mr Barrs owned the vehicle for 29 years, selling the De Tomaso in 2002 to the second owner. The most recent, and third owner bought the car in 2009 with 26,600 miles. On purchasing the car ten years ago, in the region of £15,000 was spent on the car, in 2016 a further £6,000 of expenditure went into maintenance and the car has arrived with us having now covered 33,000 miles.
For the past eighteen months the De Tomaso has been garaged and unused and has arrived with us ready for a major program of work that is to be carried out within our workshops. Not only will the car be subject to some mechanical re-commissioning work, it will also be treated to a full re-paint due to the age of the very original looking paintwork. The interior is remarkably original and lovely as expected considering its low mileage and will just require detailing. At this early stage we welcome enquiries, this is a unique opportunity to buy a very special car.
