Here is a very unique offering like you will not see again in a lifetime. If a four wheel motorcycle were to be invented, this would be it. It gives the driver a similar feeling of excitement and freedom of the road, wind in the face, unmatched acceleration and love of life as it turns every head.

1927 Ford, Mid-Engine, Pantara Roadster.

It was a feature article in the 1993 May issue of "Street Rodder" Magazine as, "The DiTomaso T". I have the article and complete build sheet on the car. I got the car as part of a trade and I am going to advertise it this spring. The car was professionally built and it shows in every detail. The body and paint work is superb. It starts right up, shifts flawlessly from gear to gear and the power to weight ratio puts it in the, "monster", category. We know what it would cost to reproduce it. So I figure $35000, or best offer, is less than half of what it would cost to build. I have my eye on another old Ford and the wife says this goes first. If you are thinking about making a classic car investment this spring, this one deserves a serious look. You will never find another one like it in a lifetime.

I can be reached for more photos and copies of the Street Rodder article
