And, if you want to confuse even more, one can discuss the De Tomaso motorcycle line. ---BILL Lewis
Which one specifically? Benelli, Moto Guzzi or ?
Around 1973 it seemed like De Tomaso was the "Go To" guy for some Italian makers financial turn-arounds, like Maserati. The fact
that De Tomaso started working for the Maserati Brothers, then
years later came to control the company is an interesting side-note in De Tomaso history.

Weren't they all made in the same place?
I was referring to being made 'close in time' or even physical proximity on the assembly line. The BSN of 4613 would tell me more.
I presume that Julian is being facetious, but I do not want his (British?) humor (?) to confuse people.
No, all Panteras were NOT made in the same place. The earliest Panteras were made at Ghia, by then owned by De Tomaso too.
Ford got (more) involved, De Tomaso bought Vignale, and they set up production of the bodies at Vignale
(which is about 300 Km from the DeTomaso plant in the former Maserati buildings in Modena.) Vignale is where they were "started".
Then they were trucked (on dollies) to De Tomaso, where they were completed.
Bodies starting around 9000 were then made by another constructor, until around 9100 or 9200, where it moved to
Embo. Again, final assembly was at De Tomaso.
Julian, if you want to confuse people let us discuss the "year" (made) of a car!
