All told, just
401 Mangustas were built by the time production ended in 1971. Only 150 units
were for the European market while the rest went to the US. In 1970, about 50
of these US-spec cars were given pop-up headlights as opposed to the normally
standard fixed units. This 1969 De
Tomaso Mangusta that’s currently up for sale on eBay has 60,150 miles on the odometer but it still runs great and has absolutely no rust. Its five-speed manual gearbox was
recently rebuilt and the car itself still runs great. As of writing, only
one bid has been placed but the reserve price of $125,000 wasn’t met. There is a buy it now price of $180,000.
