    Very little clearance for the top end at the sides, but very clean and tidy. Much fabrication. One-off billet oil pan that probably cost as much as a cheap used car.

    Somehow I missed the link to the article and pictures the first time I read the post. Great pictures of the car. The engine swap almost looks OEM.

    They make half shaft covers to keep the U joints from throwing grease over the beautiful engine bay.

    Marty’s car looks every bit as good in person as it does in the article. Marty is a great guy too.

    That is without question the highest quality Pantera build I have seen. I am a 40+ year fan.

    I usually struggle with large diameter wheels, but even those are awesome.

    Edit; I will enjoy it more when MSN picks up the article and I don't have to open Hod Rod's toxic website.

    I have owned my Pantera since 1986. Mine is pretty darn stock (except for Campy clone wheels). This (featured) Pantera matches my Ford GT and is a world beater build!!!

    Probably the nicest Pantera I have ever seen.
