We have to admit that, although it is not the first time I see a De Tomaso Deauville, I have only now noticed an interesting detail.
The detail in question concerns the opening of the engine hood: if you look at the photos posted by the seller, you will find that the bonnet, hinged at the front, opens thanks also to the front bumper that tilts down: this is a very ingenious solution (and certainly very expensive to make).
As for the rest of the car, we believe that this is a real survivor: it had only two owners (the last one since 1984) and still maintains the service book that shows the last coupons made at the authorized De Tomaso workshops: a real rare gem. The seller says it should be repainted, but we don’t agree; rather the non-postponable intervention concerns the front seats whose condition reflects the age. Find it for sale at €39,000 (today $44,000) here in San Giovanni al Natisone, Italy.
