Details about #4033

the “Banzai Runner”

Year: 1972

Model: Pantera, Pre-L

Color: Yellow

Mileage: 84,500 (at time of purchase)

#4033 was built in July of 1972 and has had the same owner since 1978. It’s the highest mileage car I looked at (84,500 mi), but was the all-around best looking, sounding, driving, shifting, running car with the most comfortable seats of any I drove. And, it has no discernable rust! I looked at cars that had better paint or rebuilt engines, but overall they didn’t compare with this one. This is a car I can drive! And I do!
