Safely Delivering the 1970’s Favorite with United Routes
With its powerful 5.8 liter V8 engine, and sleek 1970’s style curves, the 1972 De Tomaso Pantera L is one classic car that will get car lovers’ heads turning any day. The Pantera L has a beautifully crafted aerodynamic design which helped it become one the best performing mid-engine cars in its class.
United Routes recently had the opportunity to move an excellent condition 1972 De Tomaso Pantera L in one of its trucks which are made exclusively for enclosed car transport. With the car safely inside the truck, and our professional movers and drivers doing the work, we ensured quick and safe handling of the Pantera L from the beginning of the move right up until the end.
Expert Italian Design
The 1972 De Tomaso Pantera L was produced by the De Tomaso car company of Italy for a period of twenty years, from 1971 until 1991. In that time, over 7000 Panteras were manufactured, with the maximum of three a day being produced in the early 1970’s. The models in 1972 were some of the earliest ones and often found to be crowd favorites.
The 1972 De Tomaso Pantera L was built with the unique mid-engine design. This means that the engine is set further back than the usual spot under the hood of the car.
The primary benefit of having built the Pantera’s engine in this position is that more weight of the car is placed on the back tires. This translates into better traction of the back tires, and a significantly easier time when braking. For the more aggressive drivers of newer and older sports cars out there, it would mean fewer spin outs or skidding.
A potential drawback when building a car with a mid-engine design is that there can almost never be any possibility for a backseat. Due to the engine being set further back, the back bench seating in a regular sized car is almost completely taken up by the engine. However, for those usually buying new or old sports cars, that rarely presents itself as a real issue.
Experts in Classic Car Transport
According to American definitions, a classic car is defined as being between 30-49 years of age, so the 1972 De Tomaso Pantera L certainly fits the bill. As a result of the age, and often heavy use of the classic car over the years, it requires especially delicate handling when moving from one location to another.
This is where United Routes and their expertise in classic car transport comes into the equation. With years of experience, and thousands of classic, antique and exotic cars moved, we are the company who knows exactly what it entails to get that special automobile where you need it.
With the sleek and beautiful 1972 De Tomaso Pantera L it was no different. From the loading of the Pantera up into enclosed car transport vehicle, to the smooth journey to our destination, and finally the safe unloading of the car, we ensured that our customer could feel secure in the smooth and efficient delivery of their car.
