1969 DeTomaso Mangusta s/n 8MA 674. Only 1,150 miles. Just finished a 10–year and $100,000 plus bare–tub–up restoration. Black on black paint over Giugiaro designed lines. Available for less than the cost of restoration. One owner for the last fifteen years! The 87th of 401 Mangustas built in the golden–era of pre–bumper, pre–smog Italian exotics. Just serviced, aligned and highly detailed, ready to go or show. A very early Mangusta without smog pumps and side marker lights. Ford 302 powered, it runs extremely well, has as–new syncros. Excellent Dunlop Vintage Racing tires on 15–inch Campagnolo wheels. Pay for the restoration, get the car for free, or buy the car and get the restoration for free!
