Some of you probably already saw this, but a set of original Mangusta owners manuals just fetched $4,200 on BAT.

If you're not familiar with Bring a Trailer (BAT), it's Tinder for car guys!
 
Anyway, I wish they were mine to sell.

I think Theo puts these together. he has 3 for Ferrari for sale on Fchat

 
Hall sells reproductions guides and Silvestro has NOS Warranty cards and specifications on eBay fro time to time. The original owner guides are quickly identifiable as they have velum pages showing lubrication points (that the reprints don't).  I just hope this buyer did get an ORIGINAL guide.

Editor's Note: I don't think Ferrari chat allows lurkers, you have to log-in to view their content.

$4,200 more I would imagine!  

I have seen only  a couple of sets like this over the last 10 years, and the prices were higher. I would say well bought.   

Interesting, here is an original manual on ebay (seller inherited from his Grandfather's car!). What is interesting is the 2 stubs, the owner guesses were warranty cards. The text in the manual at "service" mentions 3 maintenance coupons, has anybody seen these ?

update 11/24/19; the manual came with 8ma1134....I'd wondered if only early cars had the lube diagram, but one question is now the opposite...were these glued starting some time later..or maybe, like all things Mangusta, things were not so consistently done...). At least, if anybody knows the owner of 1134 (Provamo has a pic of it at a concours this year, am the owner apparently had a black goose w/webers he swapped license plates to/fro), their manual remains for sale on Ebay--Lee
