Modelo : Mongoose Funny Car
The CIPSA version of the Mongoose Funny Car is a Wave 2 release using the US version of the Mongoose casting.
The paint colors are not found in normal production,
either HK or US and the glass on the CIPSA version is different having a slight tint. The interior and prop assembly are black like the domestic versions.
The wheels are Type 1 capped redlines like all domestic cars. The stickers on the CIPSA Mongoose are similar to the Mongoose II version from 1971. However, they
have Spanish wording and the CIPSA logo where the Mattel logo is normally located.
