i have a pantera GT5S. the early panteras had major flaws (the engines were strong, but the suspension was weak as were the early bodys)
my pantera was built in 1974 but was titled as a 73 when ford pulled the plug on the pantera at the dealers (think lincoln murcury)
out here in cal any 73 car needs no smog.
and is a blast to drive
