I have a guy wanting to trade his 81 Pantera GT5 Sport, for the 68 Shelby GT500. What do you think?

it's going to come down to what the Shelby means to you, cause that's a sweet looking Pantera

7000 miles on a 15yr resto, still looks great, no issues, not orig wheels, He wants to trade straight up. I'm having a hard time with the decision.

What would you pay for the Pantera if I was to trade? Current asking value is $145K .
But I do not think the market is barring that right now.

Are you looking at it from an investment side or big boy toy side?
Do you drive them or sit and look at them?
Which is more fun to drive?
Which has more tech support?

Sounds cheezy but I'd make a list and look at the + & -

I drive them and show them. Both have tech support. I think investment. After 138 mustangs and 1 Shelby I have been playing with big boy toys for some time.

Will continue to beat myself up over this till Sunday when I go see it. I like the idea of having a 1 in 20 in the world for 1981.

The auction trend right now is Pantera going up. Shelby going down still. Unless you have a rotisserie nut and bolt resto done. This is a number 2 driver.

Is that your gut feeling saying that because you like yellow. LOL.......

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.
