Description* :
This is a rare find. A decent example of the super rare mid-engined mangusta by de tomaso of italy. It was made by corgi toys in great britian in the early 70's. So, it is right at 50 years old. It has been played with and was found in a box with similar toys, so some of the scratches are just from storage. You can see the detailed engine with 4 dual webers showing 8 velocity stacks, dual exhaust, and a detailed interior with floor shifter and custom steering wheel. The front and rear irs suspensions work to move the lightweight magnesium wheels up and down. The only damage other than scratches is a broken roof antenna. The mangusta was apparently not a friendly car to drive and did not sell well, but was the seed for the similarly looking pantera with a ford engine. I owned the latter, and it was not a friendly car to drive either and you could watch it rust. Starting this one at 99-cents! So, no returns please. Shipping is via first class mail unless you want it faster. Thanks for looking. I will be listing several hundred (maybe a thousand?) Small diecasts in the coming months, with many, many more from corgi.
