Past Couple Months – Updates

Wow! We have had a very busy past couple of months. 2014 is turning out to be a great year for SACC Restorations.

We started the year with the re-development of a brand new product for the Pantera.

In late May, we held the Tech Session at the Pantera Owners Club of America’s Annual Fun Rally. The turnout was great and we debuted our brand new cable short shifter for the Pantera. The cable shifter is very smooth and offers a great improvement over the stock shifter. We will be selling the product very soon and we will have more details as it gets closer to sale.

Over the past month and a half we have been making lots of progress on the ZR1 Pantera. We received the dry sump oil tank, finished the oil system, and more. For more updates on the Pantera, check out our project site,

More Brake Kit Updates

We have a few updates today for our brake kits.

Here are some pictures of what your rears will look like for our Performance Brake Kit (15″ Wheels).

Very good performance at a very affordable price. The Pantera Performance Brake Kit. $1995.

For all of our kits as you may know, we use black Rotors. What is so nice with these black rotors, is that once they are worn in, the surface is a silver, metal finish, but the inside of the vents and cross-drilled holes are still black offering a very cool contrast.

Z06 Pantera

When we first drove our Pantera at Willow Springs Raceway we were doing good. We made it through the whole weekend without a hitch. The last run. The last lap. Our oil pressure went to zero. Our engine stalled and we pulled off the raceway.

We get home, pull it out of the trailer, and take it apart almost immediately. 
And after the engine is all apart we find this…..

The metal used to balance the crank shaft came out of the engine and did this….

Our block was shot… at least $2000 to fix it.

We have been thinking of putting a new engine into it for a more modern experience. Now we have a reason. We sold all the good parts of the Cleveland for $3000. Now we’re up $5000 on the new engine. What did we decide you ask? The GM LS376/480. Brand new 2010 Crate motor.

We always get the question “Why would we choose a Chevy engine when its a Ford?”

Well we had many reasons for choosing our engine.

  • For one, its a Detomaso not a Ford. It was only “Powered by Ford.”
  • The power to price ratio of the LS376/480 was awesome. With the Modular motor most people drop in, I would have to supercharge it and modify it to get anywhere near the power of the LS3.
  • The LS376/480 make 480Hp and 475ft-lbs of torque. Out of the box. I would be lucky to get 350HP with the modular motor out of the box.

So our Pantera has been re-powered and is faster than ever before. I present to you, the Z06 Pantera.
