A while back I got a trio of Corgi Whizzwheels Mangustas (Mangusti?). One of them was in rough shape after years of love and playwear. I decided a Resto-Mod was in order and gave the awesome car a frame up restoration/repaint/and a new set of wheels.
It’s not often that I have a good excuse to use bigger rear wheels on a custom. But, the 1:1 Mangusta did, indeed, have larger rears. Although they are not real riders, they are close enough and fit the overall color scheme nicely. The orginal color of this car was bright (faded) green.
Overall I am really happy with how this one turned out. Another wreck off my workbench... on to the next project!
