 Racecars / Posted 2 days ago by Suzanne Forni / 11 views



This Pantera has been constructed with thousands of dollars of performance enhancements and uncounted hours of build time. Beginning with an aluminum SVO stroked 427 cu in engine with Eagle steel crank and connecting rods, Yates aluminum heads and competition roller cam. No expense was spared on the power plant and traditional over-heating issues with the Pantera have been corrected with SCT oil pump, Canton road race oil pan, remote oil cooler and aluminum radiator with heavy duty cooling fans. The ZF transaxle has been improved with Timken bearings and hydraulic throw-out bearings. The suspension has been improved with Koni shocks and stopping power provided by Wilwood brakes and rotors. Fire extinguisher system, 4-post roll cage and quick release steering provide for safety when driven on track days. Flared wheel arches have been added to accommodate 18×13 and 18×10 CCW Classic wheels and competition tires. An extra set of rain tires and wheels are included. (The badging suggests this is a Pantera GTS however the VIN shows that it is not in fact a GTS).


This car has been fitted with wide wheels for racing so the fenders have been widened to accommodate the large wheels
