De Tomaso Registry: F1 & F2 '59-'63

Hi Guys,

I hope this will be the first of several threads to try and document the production figures, identities amd specifications of all De Tomaso cars. This should include production models such as the Pantera, Mangusta, Vallelunga, Longchamp and Deauville as well as the single seaters and sports racing cars. It would be great if any other chassis listing nuts want to get othes going - even with just a few chassis numbers to begin. Please contribute with any details about how these cars left the factory, no matter how small or seemingly trivial.
