Beautiful East Texas
There are some pictures of his frame modifications posted by him over on the Pantera International forum site. He is also having traction control placed on the car last I heard.

Link to pics?

UFO,

That is an amazing car! I love the lines of the GT5S. It was a great update to the original Pantera. One day I'd like to add one of those to the collection. They just seem historically significant to me.

All Steve needs todo is notch the block and the start will work with the zf trans. Also there is a company that makes steel bellhousings and they will work with the mod motor. When you use the Gt block in a shelby or mustang,etc you have to notch the block to for the starter to work. It can be done with a sawsall and then alum bits to clean the materail up. You don't have to take the motor apart or anything stupid like that.

Email me if you'd like and i have some info about it.

Has any Pantera owners out there tried fitting a set of Ford GT seats? I've been measuring and it appears that they may fit, especially with the drop floor pans.

TPraceman, Thats impressive. Is that yours?

I cant imagine how to keep that engine bay cool. I have enough trouble with cooling on mine with the 180 headers.

Taken GT5S as far as I can as a reliable driver, with the best of everything. Next step would be either make it faster or turn it into show car. Been playing with Panteras since 1984, ready to move on. I am not in hurry, but would like to make room for a second Ford GT and start playing with more modern technology. If and when you are interested, let me know.

Many of you have expressed an interest in a thread for posting pictures of Panteras and for sharing information about them. This is a place for GT owners who share a passion for Panteras as well.

gtinmyblood's 1974 Pantera GT5

Here are some pictures of my Pantera as requested. I bought the car in 1996 out of Atlanta. It had tons of rust so we started over.

I saw more than one 427 side oiler in a Pantera back in my Pantera days, the transplant usually performed by Pantera International. If memory serves, I believe they also shoehorned a Boss 429 in one as well. If a Boss 9 fit, then I have to believe a GT motor would work as well.
