Panther J 72 4.2 Litre Roadster


car description

1978 PANTHER J72
Founded in 1972 by Robert Jankel, the Panther Westwind Company produced a number of models. Panther cars often resembled bygone classics, but were in no way replicas. These were individually engineered vehicles of exceptional quality which utilised the engine and mechanical components from top line manufacturers.
Such was the quality of fabrication and the reliability of mechanics installed that, although few were produced, a very high percentage of Panthers still survive.
The J72 resembles the Jaguar SS100 and under the skin the Jaguar comparison is justified by the six cylinder jaguar engine. Designed to be driven with the peace of mind associated with owning a new car but with the esoteric vintage feel. Hand built to the highest quality these coacbuilt sports roadsters have become collectors cars in their own right.
Our Left Hand Drive example is very rare as it has the triple carburettor 4.2 Litre E Type straight six Jaguar engine, driving a four speed overdrive gearbox.
Finished in Olde English White coachwork with sumptuous Suede Green leather upholstery, this UK registered Panther has enjoyed many years spent in the kinder Spanish climate which has helped to preserve the structure. Now ready for the road following extensive refurbishment; with a replacement clutch and full cockpit re-trim including carpet, leather upholstery & re-veneered instrument panel.
Perhaps the best example available for sale anywhere, here is a must-see example of the best of British hand built automobile manufacturing.
