I was at the barret jackson auction this weekend and met a man who was restoring a 1970 mangusta. The original color is blue and he can't find the paint color code for that for that color. Any body got it ?

Thanks

I have not seen any specific Mangusta paint codes.

black
white (Paris show car)
red
yellow
orange
silver grey metallic
tan metallic
blue metallic
green metallic

Every Mangusta I have seen over the years that I know to be original has been one of the above colors. However, since the Mangustas were built on the same assembly line as the Maserati Ghiblis I'm sure you could get one one in whatever color Ghia was shooting the Maseratis with.


As far as any reference could prove the paint used would be Glidden Salchi. Here is a pic of the color wheel used by Iso at the time ( remember that the Mangusta's design was first offered to Mr. Rivolta)

Since the original posts, has anybody come up with paint codes? Looking for a match for green metallic to aid in a concours restoration. Thanks for your advice.
Johnathan Root from England would probably know, and I may be some help if you are restoring the Apple Green car from Los Angeles.
