Father purchased in the 70's and built a Pangra from the kits
Left to the son who improved on the original build

Milodon oil pan and for cooling it has an AFCO aluminum radiator and electric fan.

For the rest of the drive train it has a heavy duty T5 transmission with Hurst Plus Shifter. Centerforce clutch and pressure plate with an aluminum flywheel and aluminum driveshaft.
The Rare Pangra Dash
With the correct gauges, electronic tach isn't all that accurate and replaced with the steering mounted tach.
A view from the other side
Deluxe door panels, unfortunatly speakers have been installed and covered by coffee can lids.
I'm looking for some Ricaro leather seats for a "correct" Panga setup. BMW E21 seats are as close as I can hope to find.
Factory crank-back sunroof.
Rear seats look new.
It's 1st big showing at the Weekend of Wheels in Grand Rapids, MN with some of my other toys...
and the Pangra gets a 1st place award
