but I did find it... from here: https://petrolicious.com/articles/de-tomaso-mangusta
scroll all the way to the right on the top images...
From looking at the sellers "other items", he should know this one is not the production version... and possibly worth much more...
it also doesn't have the rear deck vents, it's just smooth behind the rear windows. in latter pictures of the same car they're there...
looks like different exhaust too... and backup lights?
also noticed the wipers meet in the center
Interesting to see all the changes...
then look at http://www.provamo.com/Members...1218/Unknown1218.asp which is probably 8MA504 or 8MA506 and you can see the evolution of the first few cars to the model we know
Denis, so darned interesting...Wyss's book "Detomaso Automobiles" shows another prototype, very much like The prototype but with vent screens below the rear glass---(still with external hinges, and not the Fiat 850 tail lights, full rear bumper...Maybe just a re-do of the hatches on the original proto?
And looking closely at what I thought was a shadow, but appears that the Automobile Quarterly and Sports Car graphics car shows the removable roof section---painted body color, not glass---as does the Provamo picture set of "502". Are there any pictures that show the dash (esp, the "10 gauge" layout) in the Sports Graphic?
I see your research that the Red car was sold back to DeTomaso. Was this the first real Mangusta?
