The de Tomaso Pantera Ford Service Manual
The de Tomaso Pantera Ford Service manual was publish by Ford. The book is the complete service manual for the de Tomaso Pantera. My manual also includes POCA technical service bulletins created by POCA members (some of the ideas are outdated). This is a great book if you want to fix something on your Pantera or see how it works. This book can be purchased through the POCA Club Store.

Pantera Gold Portfolio 1971-1989
The Pantera Gold Portfolio 1971-1989 is published by Brooklands Books, ISBN1 870642 97X. The book is stuffed full of de Tomaso Pantera road tests published from 1970 through 1989 from the following magazines; Motor Trend, Sports Car Graphic, Road and Track, Car and Driver, World Car Guide and many others.
The articles follow the de Tomaso Pantera from the early 1970 development prototype to the GT5S Pantera. I highly recommend the book as a must have for Pantera owners.
