Another day, another De Tomaso racer. After getting hot under the collar for this beauty back in January, another one of Alejandro's finest turns up in race duds on eBay. This Mangusta appears to have SCCA papers and FIA historic ones on the way, but alas the seller is keeping mum on the car's history. What he has divulged about the car is in his eBay description below:
