This is what I call a 1974 Detomaso Pantera Barn Trailer Find even though it’s not coming out of a Barn but, no matter where you get a 1974 Detomaso Pantera Barn Trailer Find from it’s a find worth getting period .Here’s one that fits the template to a T . The unearthing of a n exotic Italian sports car from a semi trailer left to rust — and the revival of a car that hasn’t been driven in 24 years. Those of us from a certain era will remember the Detomaso Pantera of the 1970s as the once-affordable alternative to the Lamborghinis and Ferraris of the time. Built with Italian style and a Ford 351 V-8 engine good for roughly 330 hp, and sold at Lincoln-Mercury dealers, the Pantera was just exotic enough to attract attention without the overhead mechanical costs of its peers . We’re kind of wondering how such situations come to be. Are people really that negligent that they completely forget that they left their exotic car just laying around out of sight and out of mind for all of these years . According to seller Steve Cipriani, This 1974 Detomaso Pantera L was originally sold in Albany, N.Y., and over the next 15 years had two other owners rack up 32,000 miles. Around 1981 the Detomaso Pantera got a full servicing and a few engine upgrades for $11,000, but in 1989 it was rolled into a semi trailer for safekeeping .
