Mine also but missing my chance in 2006 for a white 68 GT350 convert for $56K

in 08 traded for the fastback.

But I did build this 68 Cal Special convertible Mod. Always wanted something a little different.

It will come down to condition and the under carriage , Rust ? I could take my lucky coin with me and toss him.

He has a 69 Camaro Indy pace car , V8 , 4sp, convertible in pieces on a rotisserie .

Pantera+ Indy pace car for Shelby.

Of course If I got it I would just sell it.
No, it comes from driving a GT500. When I hear "lump" used as an engine description the FE Ford pops into my head.

Went and looked and decided not to trade. With the stress cracks in 3 out of 4 corners of the windshield post, chips in the paint, stress cracks in the deck lid to quarter area, interior smells old. Ware on drivers seat, I just felt the value was around $65-$75K do to it only being 1 of 20.

I figured it would be better for our family to sell the Shelby for $130K and purchase a restored 70's Pantera for Half. Or ?

I did offer to trade for both the Pantera and the Indy pace car but he declined.

Too bad, I might even have moved back to Oregon just to go for a ride ;-)

He will trade for a 68 Shelby GT500 if you know of one. Number 2 driver . He will not sell outright. Just trade.

The Pantera is nice, but I couldn't part with the blue (favorite color) Shelby. I have never owned a Shelby so that is my bias.

66 coupe, '93 Fox seats, Three point belts, 289, Edelbrock, Weiand, JBA tri-y's, 2" duel exhaust (H-pipe), T5 trans(3.35), Pro 5.0 shifter, 3.40 open, KH front disc, Porterfield R4-S pads, 1" front sway bar, Shelby drop, Spring perch relocation, Shelby quick steer, GT progressive coils (1/2 coil cut), 4.5 leaf mid-eye, Bilstein street shocks, Export brace, Monti-Carlo bar, Sub-frame connectors, Performance alignment (+3.5 caster/-.5 camber), 16x7 wheels, 215/55/16 & 225/55/16 BFG G-force

Where did the car come from? Its an 81 so I'm guessing Europe. They stopped selling the Panteras in the US in 1975. Looks like it's in great shape though!

Canada, Restored 15 yrs ago, Good 10 footer. Stress cracks around windshield, interior old and starting to smell. Chips in paint, rubber seal around drivers door has holes, drivers seat has scraps from getting in and out. All the plexi glass has scratches, Tires on rear around 30%, Will need a repaint soon, Deck lid needed new shocks will not stay up. I figured it is worth around $85K about the same value that Hagerty has on it. 1 of 20 made that year, Also was the year Road and Track did a track run against other euro cars and Pantera came in 1st even against Ferrari. While we were there a transport unloaded his friends 308 Ferrari, Rat nest and spider egg filled nasty project.
