The Lounge / Re: '69 Mangusta used a Hipo 289?
« on: April 04, 2020, 06:08:41 PM »
I just finished watching Wayne Carinni's show where he finished restoring a 1969 De Tomaso Mangusta.  Beautiful restoration, but what surprised me is that is supposedly has it's original engine, but it had a Hipo 289.  Weren't they pretty much gone by 1969?

As far as I know....

289 Hipo = European market
302 = US market.

What am I to do with nearly the complete 1990-2012 collection?

Does anyone want these? How about the Mustang Museum?

Anyone interested in them for the cost of shipping?

Want, but shipping would most likely bee  :o :o :o !

Up For Auction / 70 Conv with state assigned VIN.

Proceeds from the sale of these seized cars will go to the county's district attorney's office.

The Pottawatomie County (Oklahoma) District Attorney is auctioning off six Ford Mustangs that were seized from an Oklahoma lawyer, Kermit Milburn, who was accused of creating knockoff Shelby Mustangs tampering with Mustang VINs and knowingly trying to pass them off as legit Shelby models. Just days after being served with a search warrant in 2016, Milburn committed suicide.

Of the six seized Mustangs, two are Boss 302s and two are Shelby GT500 Convertibles, but it isn't known whether or not these cars are fakes. Because of this, all five of the classic Mustangs now wear state-assigned VINs even though each has its own Marti Report, and while the 2006 Mustang has its original VIN, it also has a salvage title.

All six cars are being sold at no reserve with the money going back to the Pottawatomie County District Attorney, and the live auction starts on February 8, 2020; online bidding is already live.

Again – thanks for all your answers. I'll have to think about whether I'm going to put it on my 260 or sell it and use the money for a modern intake. If I sell it, how much is reasonable to ask for it? Is it enough for a preformer and maybe a couple of headers?

Henry

Its not worth much. You could sell it to me cheap! ;) Shipping cost would be low too. I live in Norway.

I don't see mach1 in the decklid stripe. Unless it's so grainy, I can't see it.

Early cars did not have it.

Just for reference, here's a pic I have in my files of a '69 Boss 302, my note says Finland, I think it's a recent photo.

Interesting Norway photo john looks like all cars u see over there mudflaps or rock guards and added reflectors side and rear as that was part of required laws over there at the time the way I understand back in the day. I can see by looking at johns Shelby photo that spoiler design is 69 boss 302 as well as added boss rear spoiler.  The 69 boss 302 front spoiler was the service replacement for 69-70 Shelby and 69 boss 429 as (1 size fits all) replacements. I have never seen a 70 Shelby or a 69 b9 nos front spoiler in the box from a ford dealership. The only nos 69 b9 or 70 Shelby front spoilers that have been found were leftovers out of KK plant from what I seen anyway.

Mudflaps and orange rear reflectors was required by law. Had a realy heated argument with my local DMV about that. I simply refused to add some generic ugly orange lamps on my car. Guess who was the winner! ;-)
