De Tomaso started building sports cars in the 1960s and the Pantera was the first model to be produced and sold in high numbers. The reason for the model’s success was a very affordable price compared to other Italian sports cars such as Ferraris and Maseratis. Introduced in 1970, the De Tomaso Pantera was distributed by Ford on the American market until 1974. After 1974, the demand for De Tomaso Pantera models was still strong in the US and third parties imported examples regularly although the increasingly strict emission and safety regulations made it difficult. Two models were available in 1979: the Pantera Lfor Lussoand the GTS Euro. Some upgrades were made to the body, including new and smaller side blinker lightsthe same ones as used on the Ferrari 308and air vents on the hood to improve cooling.
