1976 De Tomaso Longchamp Red with tan
interior 81,000 kilometers or about 50,000
miles. The engine is a Ford 351 Cleveland
engine that produces 330 horse power
fitted with an automatic transmission. The
Top speed is 149 miles per hour.
Suspension is independent front and rear
with coil spring and wishbone suspension.
Steering is power assisted rack and pinion
with vented disc brakes all around, the rear
discs being positioned inboard. The interior
of the car is quite luxurious and is almost
fully covered with leather and this car has
the original Nardi wood steering wheel.
Handsome exterior designed by Tom
Tjaarda of Ghia. Only 409 examples of this
car were made making this car very rare.
This example has had the same owner for
15 years, he carefully cared for it doing
such things as rebuilding the power
steering rack and having the wheels
redone. Except for some minor cosmetic
flaws, the car is in very nice condition. The
great thing about these cars is that you can
own what is truly an exotic and rare grand
touring car but because they used an
American engine in the car, you don't have
to worry about expensive service or engine
rebuilt costs. These cars are a great value,
especially at $32,500
