The legendary Pink Panthermobile, from NBC’s “The Pink Panther Show,” a worldwide phenomenon in the ‘70s, has returned to Los Angeles after several years abroad. Originally built for the cost of $100,000, this one-of-a-kind limousine was designed by Ed “Newt” Newton and the construction was a collaboration between famed customizers, Dan Woods, Joe Bailon and Bill “The Leadslinger” Hines. Newton is the creator behind famous vehicles, including Ed “Big Daddy” Roth’s Orbitron and Surfite, as well as Galpin Auto Sports’ (GAS) Scythe concept and many other legendary customs. Woods’ built the infamous Milk Truck and Ice Truck.
Built on a ‘60s Oldsmobile Toronado chassis and sculpted out of sheet metal and top-of-the-line materials, the distinctive Panthermobile is an astounding 23-feet long and six-feet wide. Powered by a massive seven-liter engine that moves the front wheels, and the driver’s seat is located outside the vehicle in front of the engine. The all-pink long-snouted vehicle exudes classic ‘70s era cool with its space-age styling and two-piece clamshell opening doors. The original upholsterer, Joe Perez, reworked his magic in the same garage he did 47 years ago! The Pink Panthermobile was found and completely restored by GAS with Builder, Dave Shuten. The Pink Panthermobile is proudly on display for all to see at Galpin Motors!
