Ghia 5000 Mangusta with De Tomaso Chassis (271)


As the 1960s morphed into the 1970s, Corgi continued to introduce innovative features, most notably on a selection of models featuring a removable chassis. The Italian Ghia 5000 Mangusta with a De Tomaso chassis was an ideal subject – Ghia famous for their streamlined bodies and De Tomaso for their engine and chassis combinations.

Launched into the Corgi range in 1969 with a stylish two-tone body, gold stripes on the bonnet and some beautifully detailed ‘magnesium’ style wheels, it certainly looked the part! In 1970, renumbered 203, it was revamped with Whizzwheels – no longer with a detachable chassis and in green paintwork – although the two-tone livery still appeared on the box illustration.

The car was not packed in the packaging correctly or moved about in shipping. The rear of the car wasn't being held down which caused a bend in the antenna. It was able to be straightened out so all is fine.

Made to perfection... thanks

Just like the original one

Looks and feels like the original one i had as a kid… at least from what i remember ! Funny how you remember those details (50 years ago in my case), when you played with the toys; the weight, the colors, etc!

Really well made. The body detaches/reattaches from the chassis flawlessly. Box is very unique and reminds me of the James Bond Moon Buggy box.
