With Ford seeking to acquire an exotic car company in the late 1960s, they would land at the doorstep of retired racing car driver turned automotive manufacturer Alejandro De Tomaso. Having already created a charming four-cylinder Vallelunga and radical V8 Mangusta Coupe, Ford would reach a deal to import 10,000 of their new Pantera design to be sold at Lincoln-Mercury dealerships around the country. Designed by Tom Tjaarda at Ghia, the Pantera would feature crisp lines and a long snout sitting atop a pressed-steel unit chassis, powered by an off-the-shelf Cleveland V8 producing over 300-horsepower. Debuting at the New York Auto Show in 1970, a top speed of over 150 miles per hour was rumored along with many amenities such as air conditioning, which American buyers demanded. Despite the Pantera being produced in Europe until 1991, in 1974 having imported fewer than 6,000 Panera’s, Ford would end their arrangement with De Tomaso. 

This car is part of the Retro Motors Collection, which comprises over 30 cars largely from the 1950s through today, with a focus on American muscle and high-powered European sports cars. View the full collection here.
