1974 DeTomaso Pantera 
No Reserve!  Starting price is way. way below the money put into this amazing car!
(Ebay asked me to relist due to a wording error in the terms. )(Changed category)(Added miles and mileage history)(Added upgrades completed by prior owners)
Background Information: I originally bought this car to do some clean-up to the black paint and flip this quickly.   But once I started looking through the paperwork and looking closer at the car it became very clear that this car has been valued and loved since day one.   There are over 200 neat and tidy pages of invoices and history included in a binder going all the way back to its import into the U. S.   The import documents take up 20 pages by themselves.   It has had dozens of upgrades and modifications over the years with the best ones installed over the last decade.   In fact. we ran a quick tape on this of only the bigger stuff which came to $58. 53 - not including our body and paint work!  Add in our bill and this car has somewhere north of $75. 00 spent on it.  

This car even still has its Italian gauges and all of the Italian paperwork including the original invoice. Luckily for you and I - I bought it right and we only worked on this when we were slow over the winters so you don't have to pay even close to that price.  Don't buy one and fix it up yourself - buy this one and do a few additional improvements that make you happy and you will have one of the best Panteras out there for a fraction of the price of having a so-so car restored.

 I have listed the highlights of this car below but there are dozens of smaller items that you will find when you read through the book

TO BID YOU MUST BE OVER 18 and pay with a money order. cashiers check or wire transfer. Please do not bid without the intent to finalize this transaction.  
ALL SALES ARE FINAL WITH CAR BEING SOLD WHERE IS. AS IS.  Please. ASK if you have a question!  Email will be answered PROMPTLY. Seller reserves the right to end auction early. The vehicle is offered with a right to a personal inspection by any bidder or agent of any bidder.  All used vehicles should be assumed to have some degree of wear. No vehicle is perfect to everyone. Each vehicle has its strengths. styles. tendencies and shortcomings. Therefore. despite our best efforts to verify a vehicle's mechanical condition. we are not able to warranty a manufacturer's workmanship or previous owner's diligence in care. It is for this reason that all vehicles are sold "AS IS". We have described the above mentioned vehicle to the best of our ability. However. with all pre-owned automobiles. the condition is subjective. Please be advised that no oral or written statements concerning any vehicle constitutes a representation or warranty of the condition of the said vehicle.  You need to check with your local government for any special rules regarding these older vehicles passing inspections. We are not liable for any vehicle not passing inspection for your country. The vehicle is available for inspection prior to bidding.  I encourage a physical inspection strongly to avoid any misunderstandings or representations. All above terms and conditions are applied to vehicle sales. whether through Ebay or otherwise. Sorry. but in all fairness to the bidding process. I will NOT disclose my reserve price until the auction has ended.
PAYMENT TERMSPayment must be made by Cashiers Check. Money Orders or Wire Transfers payable in US Dollars.

The buyer has seven(7) days from close of auction to inspect the vehicle. If the vehicle is not to your liking within this seven day inspection period then your deposit will be refunded 100%. If an inspection or decision takes longer then seven days and you find the vehicle not to your liking. your deposit will be forfeited and the car will be relisted. Final payment must be received within ten (7) days of the auction close. The refundable deposit only applies if you or an agent inspect said vehicle in Ogallala and find it not to your liking. I will not be responsible for buyers remorse or problems found to said vehicle once they have left my property. I am just being realistic. most of the cars I deal in are vintage and by their very nature will need TLC and some degree of attention sooner or later. These are not new cars and should not be treated as such. Once full payment has been received. Seller will fax a copy of clear title. Bill of sale. Buyers guide and additional DMV forms to the Buyer to sign and return via fax. The forms must be returned to the Seller prior to the shipment of said vehicle.
