Reply to "1972 DeTomaso"

I like the originality of the car. If you are not able to do so yourself, you should have somebody take at least 20-40 pictures of the car, engine bay, interior, under the front hood and any detail shots of damaged, rusty or marginal areas. Having all of the receipts available is a plus as well. Please compare your car to those on PI Motorsports website PIM Cars for Sale and see if your asking price is in line. Because you are out of the way in Montana, it is difficult for interested parties to visit your car and evaluate it. Be careful that truly qualified buyers come to see or test drive the car. You will find that there are a lot of "tire-kickers" out there who have no intention of buying anything but just get some type of gratification hounding you for information. Do not allow anybody to come to your home if you are alone and do not let anybody test drive your car unless they are very serious and have made a deposit. These cars are very fast and in the hands of inexperienced drivers can be lethal. Sadly, the chief engineer and test driver for DeTomaso, Mr. Bertocchi himself was killed when a customer crashed a Deauville at speed with him riding shotgun. If you need more information and sales tips, please call on us for any counsel. We hope your husband makes a speedy recovery. We are sad that he can't enjoy this very original looking car himself. Best regards, PI Staff
