A few years ago I had a bit of an obsession with the De Tomaso Pantera. Such a gorgeously flawed Italian car with a Ford engine. I've since relaxed that obsession a bit, but recently the online site Mustang 360 posted an article about a particular 1972 model that caught my eye.
Color, eye popping. Wheels, I'm not quite sure. Gaudy, probably useless wing, hell yes. Lamborghini Countach-ish from the rear view, I've always thought.
The reason why I keep going back to look at this beaut? Because of what is hiding in the engine bay. A Mustang Boss 351-ish Cleveland is usually sitting here, and that is special. Instead, in this car, is a 4.6 DOHC 48-valve Mustang Cobra derived screamer. 450 horses, no waiting.
