1975 Panther


$39,600 USD | Sold

United States | Auburn, Indiana




Built to emulate the beautiful SS100 from Jaguar, the Panther J72 was an ultra-exclusive luxury roadster by Panther West Winds Ltd. of Surrey, England. Intended to compete with the best of the 1970s motorcar industry, it offered elegant classic motoring with modern reliability and performance that surpassed that of the original SS. Only 398 J72s were built and often found homes with celebrities. This particular car has Jaguar V-12 running gear with quad carburetors and a four-speed manual gearbox that features overdrive. The odometer shows only 10,083 from new and the fine condition of the car reflects the limited use. Other notable features include four-wheel disc brakes, chrome wire wheels with Goodyear radial tires, a rear luggage rack and spare tire. When it came to modern technology wrapped in a classic style, the Panther was unmatched.
