Yet another East German car that took part in the early F3 races, it was entered by one Harry Merkel and unusually this was an Opel powered example. The Panther 3 took part in 3 races in 1964 with a best finish of sixth at a poorly supported race at Nieubeberg. The car continued into 1965 when it was joined by a Panther Kadett (obviously still Opel powered).
