Launched in 1970 at the New York Auto Show, the De Tomaso Pantera was the most successful model made by the recently established manufacturer. The model was offered in many different variants until 1993. In 1985 and until 1991, the De Tomaso Pantera GT5-S was being sold. The S doesn’t stand for sport as one might think, but for steel in reference to the steel fender extensions in opposition to the polyester ones like on the previous GT5 model. The interior didn’t change much from the previous model, featuring leather and wood inserts on the dashboard and doors. A few models were converted into targa by the Italian company Pavesi in Milano. Models imported to the US had to feature special bumpers to comply with the safety regulations.
As a prospective 1985 De Tomaso Pantera buyer, you probably done some research on the model and know a lot about the specifications and history. An interesting fact is that in the middle of the 1980s, chassis numbers were harmonized internationally and a new code with 17 characters was introduced. For the Pantera model, the new code started with ZDT874000 instead of THPN. The first chassis of De Tomaso Pantera GT5-S was number 9375.
