Reply to "Mangusta Parts Book"

The copy I got from Hall eons ago has quite a few extra pages- many are of body panels before being welded into a shell. Note that all the parts shown are hand-drawn illustrations, so umpteenth-generation photocopies do not improve the clarity of the crude pictures. For instance, there are three different front lower a-arms possible but only one illustration- which doesn't show the subtle differences. And many of the original sources for Mangusta parts are less than helpful- how many Fiat 500 or Lancia dealers are around today, or have useable parts in a junkyard? Finally, the 40-year-old part numbers have long been superceded or dropped by everyone concerned, except maybe DeTomaso Modena. So IMHO, this is not an essential book for 'Goose owners. But as a historical document, its nice to have. And you do get to work on your technical Italian, as not all the named parts are translated....
