The incredible 1969 DeTomaso Mangusta featured here is finished in stunning dark red over a gorgeous black leather interior. Originally delivered new in Europe to its first owner and then brought to the United States where, reportedly, Carroll Shelby was commissioned to rebuild and blueprint the engine to his specifications, this stunning Mangusta eventually ended up in a prominent collection for many years. This exquisite example has been meticulously maintained and recently serviced, including new Michelin XWX tires, and is now ready to be shown or driven. Accompanying this investment-grade Mangusta are its original owner's manual, sales brochure, toolkit, and more. We are proud to bring to market what we believe to be one of the very best examples of a 1969 DeTomaso Mangusta on the market today! Offered to the most sophisticated collector, investor, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this iconic model.
One of the most gorgeous shapes to ever grace four wheels, the DeTomaso Mangusta is impossibly rare and after almost 45 years, still stunningly seductive. Meaning “Mongoose” in Italian, the Mangusta was the first car of DeTomaso to see mass production; if a total of 401 units can be considered “mass.” Powered by a high-performance Ford V8 believed to be producing well in excess of 300 horsepower, the big V8 is backed by the same ZF 5-speed transaxle used in the famed Ford GT-40 racers. Top speed is estimated at 155 m.p.h. and with a total height of only 43 inches, the sensation of speed is further magnified. The Mangusta rides on 15” Campagnolo cast-magnesium wheels, hulking beneath aggressively flared fenders, and a fastback tail with a distinctive dorsal rib on which twin-engine access covers are hinged gullwing-style. The images speak for themselves: this car is breathtaking.
The investment potential of this amazingly rare Italian exotic is immense. According to London-based investment research firm, Historic Automobile Group International (HAGI), classic cars have appreciated an average of 13-percent per year since 1980 – while stocks averaged 11-percent over the same period.

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.
We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.
We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.
Terms available up to 144 Months

Daniel Schmitt & Company has described the above-mentioned vehicle to the best of our ability. However, as with all pre-owned automobiles, the condition is subjective, and we recommend that the potential buyer fly out to inspect, as well as test drive any of our vehicles before finalizing their purchase. If it is not feasible for you to personally perform an inspection, we will gladly help facilitate an inspection by an independent service center of your choice and will make delivery arrangements of the vehicle for this purpose. All vehicles are sold in “AS IS” condition. Extended warranty options are available on most vehicles. Please be advised that no verbal statements concerning any vehicle constitutes a representation or warranty of said vehicle. Our goal is to provide you with the best service and buying experience as possible. All purchases include an additional $385 processing fee which covers the processing of paperwork, pre-vehicle delivery costs, FedEx shipping fees, and a 30-day temporary registration plate so that the vehicle can be driven prior to the title transfer. (ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for the Federal Reserve fee(s) charged for all incoming wires).
In regards to winning bidders and Buy It Now customers: All winning bidders and Buy It Now bidders are encouraged to fly out and personally inspect the vehicle. If you deem the vehicle is not as represented upon personal inspection, we will not only refund your deposit, but will also reimburse your airfare at the cost of a coach ticket. Feedback must be left at the time of delivery upon final inspection.
Pertaining to non-eBay winners: Anyone who has provided a deposit but whose purchase is still pending, please note that said vehicle will not be held and is subject to being sold at any time until all contingencies are removed and the purchase order is signed.
The advertised mileage represents the actual miles when the car was posted online. These vehicles are test-driven and actual mileage may vary at the time of sale.
All used vehicles should be assumed to have some degree of wear. We do not manufacture our product. Each vehicle’s brand has its strengths, styles, tendencies, and shortcomings. Despite our best efforts to verify a vehicle’s mechanical condition, we are not able to warranty a manufacturer’s workmanship or a previous owner’s diligence in care of said vehicle. Due to this reason, all vehicles are sold “AS IS”. There are no mechanical guarantees, expressed or implied.
Daniel Schmitt & Co. reserves the right to end the auction at any time.
