FOR SALE: 1971 De Tomaso
MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer yet another PAIR of badass, very hard to obtain movie cars! You may recognize these two DeTomaso Panteras from a certain automotive cult movie by the name of \"Fast 5,\" maybe you\'ve heard of it? These two black Panteras were actually used in the filming of an intense action scene and are both still on Universal City Studios California titles! We are in no way affiliated with Universal Studios or the production of the movies; we are simply selling the vehicles from the movie! As a little background on the car with a cult following - the car was designed by American designer Tom Tjaarda and replaced the DeTomaso Mangusta. Unlike the Mangusta, which employed a steel backbone chassis, the Pantera was a steel monocoque design, the first instance of De Tomaso using this construction technique. The Pantera logo included a version of Argentina\'s flag turned on its side with a T-shaped symbol that was the brand used by De Tomaso\'s Argentinean cattle ranching ancestors. The car made its public debut in Modena in March 1970 and was presented at the 1970 New York Motor Show a few weeks later. Approximately a year after that production Pantera\'s started finding their way into the hands of customers and production had already been ramped up to a remarkable (by the standards of Modena-built exotica) 3 per day.. These cars are being sold as a PAIR and include both a 1971 DeTomaso Pantera and a 1972 Pantera. Both cars are currently inoperable. The 1971 Pantera has been completely stripped and has no engine, transmission, interior, electronics, NOTHING! The windows have been spray painted black and it still has the paint tape on the rear deck reading \"TRAIN.\" It is believed that this Pantera was the one that was yanked from the train onto the flatbed in the action scene. The 1972 Pantera does still have an engine and transmission, along with most of its parts included inside the car. Some of the windows are no longer intact. This particular car has 35,837 miles currently shown on the odometer. It is believed that this particular car was used for the driving scene in the desert. This is your opportunity to own a piece of automotive movie history! These two cars could be combined to make one badass DeTomaso Pantera! Both cars are being sold on clear Universal City Studios California titles. The 1971 Pantera\'s VIN is THPNLS01788 and the 1972 Pantera\'s VIN is THPNMR02747 and currently shows 35,837 miles. As mentioned previously, we are in no way affiliated with Universal Studios or the production of the movies; we are simply selling the vehicles from the movie! GET OUT AND DRIVE!
