We are pleased to offer 1969 De Tomaso Mangusta s/n 8MA 674. An ultra–low mileage example, this USA model Mangusta has only 1,150 miles and has just finished a 10–year and $100,000 plus bare–tub–up restoration. Finished in a deep black paint, which accentuates the Giugiaro designed lines, over a mirror straight body, finished off with extremely well done full black leather interior and dash. Available for less than the cost of restoration. Comes with a loose–leaf binder with over 100 pages of chronological receipts documenting all work. One owner for the last fifteen years!

The 87th of 401 Mangustas built, the Giugiaro design is unquestionably among the most attractive automotive designs of the golden–era of pre–bumper and pre–smog Italian exotics. Only 43–inches tall, the flowing body line and the centrally–hinged gullwing engine covers made a spectacular presentation. Just serviced, aligned and highly detailed, this Mangusta is stunningly good looking and ready–to–go or to–show. Mechanically as new, this very early Mangusta avoids the smog pumps and side marker lights which blemished the later cars. Has the more attractive four headlights and a well sorted A/C system.

Powered by a Ford 302, it runs extremely well, pulls strong to redline with a bullet–proof ZF gearbox and as–new syncros that go into 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear, cold, without a problem. Has excellent Dunlop Vintage Racing tires on gorgeous 15–inch cast magnesium Campagnolo wheels with a correct Campagnolo spare.

Fly in for an inspection and test drive, this is a stunning Mangusta in a very elegant black on black combo that will not disappoint. Pay for the restoration, get the car for free, or buy the car and get the restoration for free! Priced right at $99,500 or best offer, this car is seriously for sale.
