Alfa Romeo TZ/TZ2 – Einleitung

Wie alles beginnt

Es soll ein Buch zu den Alfa Romeo TZ und TZ2 entstehen. Nicht irgendein Buch, sondern: das Buch. Danach sollten keine Fragen mehr offen sein, das ist zumindest die Absicht. Nun, da haben wir uns Grosses vorgenommen, denn, man kann es nicht anders beschreiben: es ist kompliziert. Es ist sogar extrem komplex. Nicht bloss, dass die Aufzeichnungen von Alfa Romeo eher dürftig sind, über die Jahre wurde auch viel gemischelt und gemauschelt oder schlicht und einfach: gefälscht. Ganze Autos, aber auch Unterlagen, Photos, halt alles, was man sich nur vorstellen kann. Je tiefer man sich in das Thema einliest, Bücher, Websites, Foren, desto grösser werden die Fragezeichen. Doch wir wollen sowieso Chassisnummer für Chassisnummer genauer anschauen, da wird es möglich sein, Licht ins Dunkel zu bringen.

 

Wie auch immer: es soll hier auch so etwas wie eine Community entstehen. Wir möchten das gerne diskutieren, Fahrzeug für Fahrzeug. Da sind wir auf Ihre Hilfe angewiesen – und würden uns darüber freuen. Sie dürfen das hier ganz öffentlich machen, aber auch gerne persönlich: ruch@pruductions.ch ist der richtige Weg. Das Ziel ist aber schon, alles offen und transparent zu kommunizieren, es ist dies der einzige Weg, der ans Ziel führen kann. Und ja, wir haben auch gute Quellen, ausgezeichnete sogar. Und dann selbstverständlich die Bücher: Es gibt drei Werke, die sich mit den TZ/TZ2 von Alfa Romeo beschäftigen. Da ist einerseits der «Fusi» (alfaromeo, tutte le vetture dal 1910; verschiedene Ausgaben); der ist aber mehr so allgemein gehalten, aber halt wichtig, weil die Daten über einen langen Zeitraum aktuell gehalten wurden. Dann gibt es Marcello Minerbi, Alfa Romeo SZ-TZ, zuletzt erschienen 1992, das Standard-Werk. Und seit kurzem ist auch noch auch noch das Buch von Vito Witting da Prato, Alfa Romeo TZ-TZ2, auf dem Markt; Witting da Prato ist ein Sammler und intimer Kenner der Fahrzeuge. Prinzipiell gilt der Minerbi als Quelle, auch wenn es um noch so manche Chassisnummer Diskussionen gibt. Als weitere Quelle darf www.zagato-cars.com gelten, wobei man sich dort fast ausschliesslich auf Minerbi verlässt.

 

Wo fangen wir an? Ganz von vorne, selbstverständlich – wir werden da brav zu jedem Fahrzeug alle Daten sammeln, die uns zur Verfügung stehen.

Chassis-Nummer: 750001

Karosserie: –

erster Besitzer: Nicola Bernardo Leali*/Dario Leali**

weitere Besitzer: Castelli; Fossati; Cupellini; Hayashi*

Bemerkungen: Die Lage ist verworren. Chizzola schreibt in seinem Buch «Autodelta», dass der Wagen von DIPRE ESPE (tatsächlich) gebaut worden war. Andere Quellen sind überzeugt, dass 750001 zerstört wurde, nachdem die TZ-Produktion begonnen hatte. Und wieder andere Quellen sind überzeugt, dass das Fahrzeug erst im März 1965 fertiggestellt wurde. Es existiert ein Bild eines unbekannten Fahrzeug mit einer eigenartigen Front von der Coppa Fisa 1963 mit der Startnummer 276 (Fahrer: Giancarlo Baghetti), bei dem es sich allenfalls um 750001 handeln könnte.

Bemerkungen: Es heisst: Verunfallt 1967. Es heisst bei Minerbi: Von Autodelta zum TZ2 umgebaut. 2006 in einem Inserat bei Anamera zum Verkauf angeboten mit folgendem Text: «Alfa Romeo TZ 1 1964 – Chassis 750 004 – Original color: Rosso/Beige – First owner is Nerini Roberto Italy – Accidented in 1967 and repair at Autodelta chop in a TZ 2 – The TZ 1 and TZ 2 share the same chassis, engine, gearbox, rear axle etc, the main difference is dry sump engine and fiberglass body. Engine, brake, suspensions have been rebuilt. The engine is experimental Autodelta with very special parts. The distributor turn opposite to a normal engine». Das Fahrzeug stand 2008 bei Vanderveken zum Verkauf – und wurde zuletzt 2016 auf der Autoworld in Brüssel gesehen. Wobei es keinerlei Beweise gibt, dass 750004 tatsächlich von Autodelta zu einem TZ2 umgebaut worden ist. Geschweige denn: überhaupt noch existiert.

Bemerkungen: Wurde bei Autodelta in Udine aufgebaut (150 Stunden, Kosten: 225’000 Lira). Weil Alfa Romeo noch keine Motoren und Getriebe liefern konnte, wurde das Fahrzeug bei DIPRE ESPE vervollständigt (zusammen mit 750028/750031). Giancarlo Sala entfernte 1967 sämtliche Farbe vom Fahrzeug, weil er sich eine Gewichtserleichterung versprach – 750006 war deshalb viele Jahre gut zu erkennen am nackten Aluminium.

Auktion: RM Sotheby’s, Villa d’Este 2011, verkauft für 627’200 Euro.

Beschreibung gemäss RM Sotheby’s: «150 bhp, 1,570 cc DOHC inline four-cylinder engine, five-speed manual gearbox, four-wheel independent coil-spring suspension, and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. Wheelbase: 2,200 mm (86.6″)
– One of the most important TZs in existence, race-prepared new for Alfa Romeo by Autodelta
– Entries at the Targa Florio, Le Mans 24 Hours, Monza 1000 Kms and Tour de France
– Landmark Alfa Romeo model with gorgeous aluminium Zagato coachwork
– Fully restored by Piet Roelofs Engineering to 1964 Le Mans configuration and livery
– Single-family ownership for 23 years
One of the most desirable of all of the post-war Alfas, TZs were and continue to be considered as Alfa Romeo’s version of Ferrari’s GTO. Ranking in rarity with the very best sports cars, only about 112 were built between 1963 and 1967. At the October 1963 FISA Cup at Monza, Alfa introduced a competition Giulia, named “TZ” for its “Tubolare” space frame chassis and striking lightweight „Zagato“ coachwork. At this race, TZs finished 1-2-3-4 in their class – an extraordinary debut achievement. In 1964, the TZ was FIA-homologated and immediately began logging an impressive string of victories. TZs raced in the most important races, were driven by some of the best drivers at the time and competed against the likes of Ferrari 250 GTOs, Shelby Cobras, Maserati Birdcages and Porsche 904s. At the 1964 Targa Florio alone, Porsche took the first two spots with 904s, Alfa Romeo came in third and fourth with TZs, and Ferrari with their 250 GTOs took fifth. Class wins at Sebring, Le Mans and the Nürburgring that year also solidified the TZ’s position within the annals of motorsport. Without a doubt the TZ was a highly competitive road car, but the outstanding chassis provided very predictable handling and made for a virtually unbreakable rally car as well, with a TZ winning the Alpine Rally outright in 1964. Its design is unrivalled as well. The stunning bodies were built by Zagato at a time when the coachbuilder produced some of its greatest designs, including the Aston Martin DB4 GTZ, Maserati A6G/54 and Ferrari 250 GTZ.
Chassis no. 750006
According to research, as well as the Zagato TZ Registry, chassis 750006 was completed and race-prepared by Autodelta for the Alfa Romeo DIPRE ESPE (Experimental Department) and invoiced on 2 April, 1964. This was to be one of the few Autodelta-prepared TZ chassis that were built. The later competition cars were derived from the standard homologation cars and are therefore not as rare or desirable. As such, chassis 750006 was fitted with special outboard front shock mounts, a close-ratio gearbox and a larger radiator header tank.
Soon after, it was purchased by Eugenio Dragoni’s Scuderia Sant’Ambroeus, which was organised during the late 1950s by Dragoni, a successful Italian cosmetics magnate with a passion for motor sports and a close relationship with Ferrari. The team was very successful in the 1962-1966 period, winning both a driver’s and constructor’s title in Grand Prix racing, four sports car championships and three consecutive Le Mans titles.
Barely three weeks after acquisition on 24 April, 1964, it is understood 750006 was assigned temporary road registration 68328 W6 and race number 58 in preparation for entry into the Targa Florio. While the historic Targa Florio archives are not accessible, there is photographic evidence that corroborates the car and driver’s participation in the various stages of the race. It was piloted by Roberto Bussinello and Nino Todaro, who finished the 720-km, 10-lap race in third position overall with lap times only 16 seconds slower than the race-winning Porsche 904 GTS “works” entry – a superb achievement. In June 1964, chassis 750006 contested the Le Mans 24-Hour race, where it battled against a squadron of Porsche 904s, Ferrari 250 GTOs and V-8 Shelby Cobras, among other GT-class entries. Original Le Mans paperwork confirms that chassis number 750006 was indeed assigned race number 41 on the grid. Although the car faced a horsepower disadvantage, 750006, with Giampiero Biscaldi and Giancarlo Sala driving, managed 15th overall and 10th in GT, with 4,102 kms completed in 305 laps. Alone, both Targa Florio and Le Mans history contribute immeasurably to a car’s competition pedigree, but 750006 racing days weren’t over yet. In September, the car was jointly entered into the Tour de France Auto by Autodelta and Scuderia Sant’Ambroeus, where it was co-driven by Jean Hébert and Georges Burggraf and carried race number 142. Unfortunately, it crashed on day three and retired. In March 1965, Giancarlo Sala, who co-drove 750006 at Le Mans, bought the car from Scuderia Sant’Ambroeus. Entered by his local Scuderia Brescia Corse, it contested the Monza 1,000-km race on 25th April, driven by Sala and Giorgio Pianta. Carrying race number 26, it experienced engine trouble on lap 58 and failed to finish the race. Following the Monza race, Sala entered 750006 into the Trofeo Vallecamonica in Brescia, Italy, where it finished 6th in class on number 157. Sala continued to race 750006 in Italy during 1966, 1967 and 1968, finally entering the 1969 Targa Florio that May, where it failed to finish. In an effort to remain competitive through weight reduction, Sala removed all paint from the inner and outer bodywork of 750006 at some point in 1967, an idea inspired by the bare-aluminium Porsches that he had seen earlier at the Nürburgring. The car remained in bare aluminium until its eventual restoration during the 2000s.
Current ownership and authentication
Sala retained the TZ for another 13 years, finally selling it to Ambrogio Gallotti in June 1982. In 1985, 750006 was entered into the Registro Italiano Alfa Romeo (RIAR) under the number 190. Mr. Gallotti then sold it to Francis Fabulet, a Parisian who entered the car into a number of historic rallies, in December 1986. The current owners acquired 750006 from Mr. Fabulet via Guido Bartolomeo in November 1987. Restoration work was eventually begun with Piet Roelofs Engineering in Holland, who returned the car to its 1964 Le Mans configuration and livery and finished the restoration just last year. Due to the condition of the bare aluminium body, much of the skin had to be replaced. The roof and most inner components of the body, however, remain original, and it should be noted that the original aluminium skin of the body will be included with the sale of the car. Following restoration, a shakedown run confirmed the startling performance of 750006 and the knee-weakening sound of its DOHC double-ignition engine at full throttle. In July 2010, the TZ was entered into the prestigious Le Mans Classic and also took to the show field at the Le Mans Heritage Club Concours, where it was awarded first in class. On 4th and 5th September, the TZ was entered in the Paleis Het Loo Concours d’Elegance, where it was awarded second in its class. Most recently, 750006 was exhibited at Auto Moto Italia in Houten, Holland in October 2010, followed by a December 2010 appearance at the Essen Motor Show in Germany.
In order to definitively confirm the car’s authenticity and identity, 750006 was taken to Italy in February 2011 and submitted to the rigorous scrutiny of a homologation and authentication session at the factory-supported Registro Italiano Alfa Romeo. Thoroughly examined by Alfa Romeo experts Maurizio Tabucchi and Lorenzo Marzullo, 750006 passed with flying colours and probably set the standard for TZs to come. The current owners have applied for, and have been granted, the most elaborate certification, the “Certificazione di Autenticita,” which will be included with the car. As offered, this TZ completes nearly a quarter-century of ownership by a single family of true enthusiasts. Chassis 750006 is acknowledged as one of the finest TZs in existence today. With its outstanding period racing history at some of the most storied racing events and venues, it is eligible for today’s most prestigious vintage racing and rally events and is complete with an extensive file containing historic photographs and documentation. For sports racing and Alfa Romeo enthusiasts, this may very well be an unrepeatable opportunity».

erster Besitzer: Alfa Romeo, Lugano – Silvio Moser

weitere Besitzer: M. Serafni; Richard Springett

Bemerkungen: Motor mit Doppel-Zündung. Es heisst in diversen Quellen, dass Karl Foitek auch einmal Besitzer dieses Fahrzeugs gewesen sein soll. Nach Auskunft seines Sohnes Frank Foitek verhielt es sich allerdings so: «Im Jahre 1964 ist Karl Schweizer Meister der Sportwagen auf dem Lotus 23 geworden, ausserden hat er mit einem Alfa TI die Rallye in Genf bestritten und die mit einem Lotus Formel Junior die Temporada in Argentinien auf Einladung von Fangio, wo Silvio Moser alle Rennläufe gewonnen hatte. Mit Silvio Moser ist er dann auf einem hellen Alfa TZ die 1000 Kilometer von Paris gefahren. Aus Erzählungen von Karl wissen wir, dass er als erster nach dem tragischen Unfall von Lindner etc. aus der Steilwandkurve auf die Unfallstelle zugefahren ist. Den Kategoriensieg hatten Karl + Silvio jedoch nach Hause gefahren. Wem das Auto gehörte und wer es vorbereitet hat, geht aus der unten aufgeführten Buchpassage „Silvio Moser“ hervor. Von hellblau habe ich jedoch irgendwie mal etwas gehört. 2015 wurde in Lugano ein Buch über Silvio Moser von Giorgio Keller vorgestellt aus welchem die folgende vorher erwähnte Passage, über vermutlich diesen Alfa TZ zu finden ist: «Negli anni seguenti, Silvio ed io corriamo in serie differenti, lui a livello europeo, io invece più che altro in Svizzera, Germania e Austria. Vengo invitato a correre la 1000 chilometri di Parigi a Monthléry nel mese di ottobre, ultima prova del Mondiale propotitpi. A Monthléry il signor Foitek ci va a piedi, solo che …non ho la macchina. Ne parlo a Silvio che mi rassicura” Ich luege mit em Herr Aldo”, mi dice, cioè che vedeva col signor Aldo, Aldo Sonvico della scuderia Martinelli e Sonvico. Difatti andiamo a Parigi dove corriamo con una sua Alfa Romeo TZ. Il milanese Biscaldi della scuderia Sant’Ambroes ci precede in prova ma in gara riusciremo ad avere la meglio. Siamo 15. assoluti (e primi della classe GT 1600) nella gara vinta da Graham Hill e Joakim Bonnier sulla Ferrari 330P iscritta dai “Concessionaires Maranello”. Silvio ha 23 anni ed è il più giovane tra l’ottantina di partenti. Se stavolta non mi è riuscito di battere Silvio Moser, almeno ho vinto con lui».»

erster Besitzer: A. Lou Mellon; gefahren wurde der Wagen damals von Nadeene Brengle. Ihr Sohn David erzählt folgende schöne Geschichte von einem Rennen in Riverside***: «Nadeene almost made history that day. She qualified on the pole with a new track record in Cp. Dick Smith in a Porsche 356 got a great jump at the start and took the lead with Nadeene in pursuit. Going into turn 5, Dick tapped his brakes and Nadeene had to take evasive action, spinning off and scraping the outside wall. She came back on the track in last place. Over the next 16 laps she put on a masterful display, picking off cars one-by-one. The checkered fell with Nadeene right on Smith’s tail. In the race she lowered the lap record again by a full second. I was 7 at the time. My grandmother, brothers and I watched the race from the outside of turn 2. I didn’t really understand why everyone was making such a big deal about my mom passing all these other people. Didn’t everyone have a mom who could drive the wheels off of a race car?»

weitere Besitzer: Phyllis Gaylard, zum Verkauf angeboten im AROC-Magazin, Ausgabe 15, Januar 1972: «Giulia TZ, late ’63. Currently in racing condition but can be converted to street use. Registered in California. Fresh 1600 Veloce engine, transmission, and clutch will be provided. Comes with 7 Campagnolo mag wheels, Goodyear racing tires, and many special spare parts, including oil pan, intake manifold, motor mounts, brake pads and seals, U-joints, etc. Priced to sell at $3750»; John Rosenstock (ab 1977).

Bemerkungen: 2014 zum Verkauf angeboten von www.fantasyjunction.com: «The TZ1 is a very special competition car built in extremely limited numbers. Introduced at the Turin Auto Salon in 1962, it is built on a sophisticated tubular chassis. The chassis is a dedicated tubular unit that weighs just 125 pounds, and as a result, ensuring that the TZ1 is a Giulia only in the loosest sense of the term. The specification is impressive, with independent suspension and disc brakes all around (inboard at the rear), aerodynamic Zagato Kamm tail bodywork, and Alfa Romeo’s venerable twin cam engine. With a weight of just 1459 pounds, the car was capable of 140mph. In the hands of privateers, the cars were incredibly successful, sweeping their class at Le Mans, Sebring, the Nurburgring, the Targa Florio, and the Coupe des Alpes. Just 120 examples were built making them tremendously rare and highly collectible.
This particular car has had the same owner since 1977 and has period race history in SCCA Club Racing, including a second in class finish at the ARRC (American Road Race of Champions) National Runoffs at Riverside, driven by Nadine Brengle. She lived in San Diego at the time, and the car was subsequently raced by Phyllis Gaylord, also in SCCA events from her base in Southern California. The car’s current owner is also from Southern California and he has used the car in many events, including some on the east coast such as Watkins Glenn, Lime Rock, and the Mount Equinox Hillclimb. The car was also displayed on the lawn at Pebble Beach in 1996 after racing in the Historics on Saturday. The engine is a 1600cc unit of the correct type, although it a replacement fitted relatively early in the car’s history as a competition car. The car has a host of desirable equipment including twin plug head, magnesium oil sump, magnesium bell housing (not currently fitted) to the car but included, original airbox, original 5.12 limited slip differential, and close ratio gearbox.
The motor has approximately five hours on it since a complete rebuild, which included new Carillo rods, Ross pistons, new bearings, and much other work. The cylinder head was rebuilt and ported by West Coast Cylinder Heads in Reseda, California. The car has a custom aluminum flywheel and a Porsche 911 clutch. The engine was built by the owner’s mechanic, who has built many race motors for the car’s owner. He was a SCCA mechanic and driver for many years with Formula V, Formula Atlantic, and also raced an Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA. The car was inspected by Marnix Dillenius, a well-regarded TZ owner and historian, who found the car to be an authentic example with competition preparation done in period for racing in the 1960s and into the early 1970s. His additional observations included the following: The body has correct contours and is generally complete, with headlight trim rings (often missing), correct fuel filler, good front clamshell, both inside and out. The front windscreen surround trim is missing. The rear window is fixed, unlike some cars that have been converted to removable rear window. The rear fenders have flared lips. The wheels are correct and valuable Campagnolo items. The interior has correct TZ seats, although the driver’s seat is fixed and the sliders have been switched to the passenger’s seat. This lowers the driver’s seat and raises the passenger’s seat. The seat frames are original and in good shape. The car has a roll cage. There is a crack in the dashboard by the speedometer, and the car has no headliner. Gauges appear to be original besides the tachometer, though the original Jaeger tachometer is included. The car is fitted with rare twin plug head and has correct aluminum airbox. There is no heater. The radiator is thicker than original to provide higher capacity. The steering box appears normal and the car has a remote oil filter. The frame and chassis are generally correct, with several modifications to provide adjustability to the suspension geometry as required for competition. The rear subframe has no alterations aside from the modification of the rear swaybar mount and elimination of the rear sway bar. The half shafts have been shortened and the longitudinal radius arms modified in the style of the factory competition cars to allow the fitment of larger rear tires. The car is fitted with adjustable shock absorbers as well as a more modern fuel pump. The floor of the car has been reskinned and the exhaust system is a non-original Autodelta system with side exit. The car has a magnesium tail housing on the gearbox and the cross tube under the gearbox has been removed to allow the removal of the engine and transmission from underneath the car. The oil pan is in very good shape and the car has a large capacity oil system thanks to the fitment of the large size shim. The battery mount has been modified and the battery relocated slightly aft of the original location. The front lower control arms have been lightened with holes, in the style of the Autodelta ones. Front shock mounts are unmodified and the front inner fender liners are present. Camber arms have a provision for adjustability and the front jack points have unusually good integrity. The car displays vintage racer cosmetics with strong fundamentals but plenty of evidence of use. The paintwork has chips and surface cracks, the wheels are functional rather than pristine, and the limited brightwork could be straighter. However, the car has tremendous presence and is authentic and honest in appearance, leaving no doubt that it has been used as it was intended with regularity. The body is intact and is in keeping with how these cars were delivered, which is to say, not perfect. While many restored cars have been reconstructed to much higher standards than when the cars were new, this car retains an authentic presentation, as confirmed by the Zagato body number, 621, is stamped several places on the car’s body. The badges are present and in good shape. The right headlamp cover has a crack and some scratches, and the windscreen in good condition. The Plexiglas side windows have some clouding. The Carello headlamps are in good shape as are the remaining lights. The business-oriented aesthetic of the car continues inside. There is no carpeting and very little upholstery to speak of. The upholstery on flying buttress seats in good shape. The tubular framing of the chassis is very much in evidence and shows plenty of wear to the paint, although the structure itself is sound. The dashboard is purposeful, painted flat black, with a full complement of instruments, mostly Jaeger although the car is currently running a period Jones tachometer, which the green Alfa TZ book indicates was a factory option. The original Jaeger tachometer is also included with the car. The engine compartment shows obvious evidence of much recent work, including beautifully polished valve cover and air intake plenum. The remainder of the engine compartment is in good clean serviceable condition, appropriate for a properly maintained race car, including the fitment of Aeroquip fittings and stainless lines for the oil cooler, fuel supply, and brake hydraulics. The carburetors are of the correct type for the car. The twin plug cylinder head is an impressive sight and is an extremely rare item, even among the rarefied TZs. The car comes with a variety of spare parts including the magnesium bell housing, magnesium oil pan spacer, original wood-rimmed steering wheel, original tachometer, running lights, tail light lenses, water pump, and spare wheel with tire.
Eligible for nearly every prestigious event around the globe for cars of this era—from the Monterey Historics to the Tour Auto to the Le Mans Classic—this Alfa Romeo TZ will be both a welcome entrant and a joy to drive for its next owner. This car is exceptionally honest, coming from the same long term owner of 35 years and basically the car’s entire life spent in Southern California. The car is unusually equipped with twin plug head and comes with a variety of interesting and rare TZ spares». Die Preisvorstellung lag damals bei 1’375’000 Dollar…

Bemerkungen: Angaben gemäss Felix Chiu für www.zagato-cars.com: «The car was in fact ordered for Noel Armstrong of British & European Automotive of El Paso, Texas. Armstrong was an Alfa racer of some note in the Southwestern United States and had campaigned a series of Alfas in the 1950’s and 60’s. He wanted a full-race, Autodelta prepared TZ when they first appeared in the European racing scene. Alfa Romeo, Inc., the U.S. arm of Alfa Romeo would not honor such a request citing that full-race cars were not available to the public. Armstrong managed to pull some strings and got just such a car. According to the long-time chief engineer of ARI, Don Black, “A political deal between Arturo Reitz (the then President of ARI) and the clown manager of ARI Long Beach. The car went thru Rezzaghi Motors of San Francisco and Preston Erickson was the sales manager.
The car went to British & European Automotive of El Paso in March of 1965. Noel Armstrong raced it extensively in the Southwest. He took the car to Sebring for the 12 Hour race but either did not qualify or had mechanical trouble and did not run. The car was maintained by noted Alfa Guru, Ron Neal who was working with Armstrong at the time. Noel had all his racing Alfas painted a sky blue color, and the TZ was no exception and retained that color to this day. The car was raced hard for a number of years and then was transferred to a Robert (Al?) Morrison of Atlanta, Georgia in October of 1970. This was when the car was first registered.
Subsequently in July of 1974, Lawrence Jones of San Francisco bought the car and had it completely restored by Griswold in Berkeley, CA. Larry Jones raced the car in vintage events until the mid ’80’s. The car was then sold to Said Marouf of San Diego. Just about every collector car dealer on the West Coast at the time made a commission on the transaction, including Fantasy Junction, Mike Sheehan and Don Orosco. Marouf continued racing the car in vintage events. In 1988, Tom Byrnes of San Francisco bought the car from Said and gave it another restoration. He again raced it in vintage events.
(Felix Chiu) Acquired the car from Tom Byrnes in 1998 and campaigned the car in vintage races all thru the West Coast of America until 2005. The car was equipped with a twin-plug head and pretty much all of the original or original spec equipment. It is one of a handful of TZs with knock-off wheels. The car is well known on the West Coast and had appeared in many vintage events over the last thirty some years. It had adorned the pages of many magazines and the latest Pat Braden book, “Alfa Romeo all-alloy twin cam companion 1954-1994”, the front cover of Alfa Owner and appeared in a limited edition calendar commemorating Alfas being the features at the Concourso Italiano and Pebble BeachConcours in 2005. As far as I know, the car was raced pretty much every year since new. I have a letter from Ms Elvira Ruocco of Archivio Storico Alfa Romeo, Centro di Documentazione stating the date of manufacture, original color and date of transfer to Preston Triksen of Rezzaghi Motors. I also had a copy of the Bill of Sale from Rezzaghi Motors to British & European Auto (BEA) and from BEA to Robert Morrison of Atlanta, GA as well as the original Bill of Sale from Morrison to Larry Jones, copy of vehicle registration to Said Marouf and of course, the original Bill of Sale from Byrnes to me. I had the racing record log book back to the mid 80’s when Marouf owned the car. All of these documents were passed on to the next owner. I know Larry Jones, Said Marouf and Tom Byrnes in person. The car was sold to John Weinberger of Chicago, the area Ferrari and Maserati dealer and vintage racer in September 2005».

Beschreibung: «Following the success of the Giulietta Sprint Zagato of the early 1960s, Alfa Romeo began to devise a replacement for the racing berlinetta to be built on the new 105 Series platform. The 105 was first introduced at Geneva in March 1962, but it was initially only available as the Giulia T.I. sedan. The older 101 platform temporarily continued in the Giulietta coupés and spiders until appropriate replacements could be developed on the 105 chassis. The new racing berlinetta actually benefited from this gradual transition, as it received an unrushed and deliberate process of engineering by Delta, Carlo Chiti’s competition concern (soon to be renamed as Autodelta). The resulting Tubolare Zagato, or TZ, first debuted to the public in late 1962 at the Turin Salon, riding a rigid but lightweight tube frame that inspired the model’s name. Continuing its fruitful relationship with the manufacturer, Zagato fashioned beautiful new coachwork in aluminium that aerodynamically exploited the platform’s raw potential. Underneath the rakish coachwork, the standard 105 Series running gear was modified with stiffer springing and a fully independent rear suspension, while a taller fifth gear, limited-slip differential, and inboard rear disc brakes contributed to superior handling and agility. The new 1,570-cubic centimetre Giulia engine was mounted at a 20-degree angle that required specially cast components, including the intake manifold and the sump. With Weber carburettors, the motor developed 112 horsepower in street specification but could be tuned to produce 170 for racing use. Weighing just 660 kilograms, the TZ was capable of reaching a breath-taking top speed of 215 km/h. Lorenzo Bandini piloted one of the earliest Tubolare Zagatos to a class win and 2nd overall finish during the model’s racing debut at the Coppa FISA at Monza in November 1963. An impressive string of class victories followed for the TZ at 1964 events, including the 12 Hours of Sebring, the Targa Florio, the Nürburgring 1000 KM, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Tour de France, the Coupe des Alpes, the Tour de Corse, and the Critérium des Cévennes. Only 101 examples of the TZ were produced through 1967, and the model proved to be one of the most dominant and resilient competitors of its era. With even fewer known survivors remaining today, the TZ has become highly prized by collectors and aficionados for its design, rarity, superlative build quality, competition pedigree, and impressive performance. It is, in the opinion of many enthusiasts, the ultimate expression of the classic post-war inline four-cylinder Alfa Romeo sports car.
CHASSIS NUMBER 750039: This striking Tubolare Zagato is approximately the 39th example built, and it claims both successful competition history and a more recent period of long-term care by a dedicated collector. According to the records of the Zagato Register, chassis number 750039 completed construction on 28 April 1965, equipped with dual ignition and 15-inch wheels. Finished in blue paint over a black interior, the TZ was distributed to the official Alfa Romeo dealer of Rome before being acquired in May 1965 by its first owner, local resident Angelo Pelatelli. Mr Pelatalli embarked on a successful racing campaign starting with a 1st-in-class finish at the Valvisciolo-Bassiano on 27 June. The Giulia took 2nd-in-class at the Criterium dell’Ora Vallelunga in October and managed an impressive 6th-overall finish at the Trofeo 5 Conchiglie Vallelunga on 4 November. Twelve days later, 750039 again finished 2nd-in-class, this time at the Viterbo-Poggio Nibbio. On 1 July 1966, the Giulia was sold to Ippolito d’Ippolito, a dealer in Catanzaro, and around this time, it was repainted in silver. In June 1968, the TZ was purchased by Pier Luigi Vasile of Salerno, a member of the Squadra Piloti Senesi racing team, and he campaigned the car extensively while making gradual modifications to the bodywork, starting with the addition of cooling vents to the hood. Regularly competing at venues such as the Coppa Sila, the Volte di Popoli, the Coppa Primavera Amalfi-Agerola, and the Trofeo Lodovico Scarfiotti, 750039 soon received a fresh coat of orange paint, widened rear wheel arches, and cutout door handles. In February 1972, Mr Vasile sold the TZ to Palmina Pisano of Nocera Inferiore, and it then passed to Ernesto Sant’Elia of Napoli in July 1974. During the mid-1970s, the rare TZ was imported to the United States and later owned by Wes Gilpin of Dallas, Texas, who is believed to have acquired the Alfa from an American serviceman who brought the car from Italy. The car was then acquired in early 1978 by its next caretaker, Rocky Chisholm of Yorba Linda, California. Reportedly wearing a blue finish with a non-vented hood, the Alfa was soon restored, repainted red, and prepared for racing use, including significant attention to the suspension. Interestingly, during the restoration, Mr Chisholm found several olive pits in the bowels of the bodywork; it would seem as though someone was having lunch when the car was being built. He decided to leave a few of the pits in the car for good luck. In early 1983, 750039 was sold to its current owner, a Dutch collector of fine sports-racing cars, and it was re-imported to Europe. The TZ was treated to some restoration work and dialled in for further competitive use, after which it successfully ran numerous vintage rallies throughout Europe, including the Coppa d’Italia as well as the Targa Florio.
Currently fitted with a vented competition hood, this Tubolare Zagato has enjoyed only modest use during the last 10 years, and it is believed to have never been presented at any concours d’elegance. It would make a fantastic acquisition for re-entry to the vintage racing ranks, or it might serve as the basis for an important restoration to show-winning standards. In either regard, chassis number 750039 figures to receive a warm welcome by the collectible Alfa Romeo niche after its seclusion in 33 years of dedicated single ownership. Boasting rarity, documented period competition success, and an identity as one of the 1960s‘ most revered racing berlinettas, this stunning Giulia TZ would make a definitive addition to any collection, particularly suitable for marque enthusiasts and post-war sports-racing connoisseurs.

Motorsport is in Alfa Romeo’s genes, and so it was no surprise that the new Giulietta, unveiled in 1955, would quickly become the subject of more highly developed versions. The first non-standard Giulietta was the Sprint Speciale (SS) presented in 1957, with an original form designed by Franco Scaglione for Bertone, and inspired by the “ BAT “ cars. However, although it demonstrated real sporting qualities and had good aerodynamics, it was heavy and was supplemented by the Giulietta Sprint Zagato (SZ), a lighter car with a tighter form that was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 1960 and subsequently enjoyed great success in competition. This model was produced in smaller numbers than the SS, with around 200 examples built. The arrival of the Giulia in 1962 shook things up, but even though the SS adopted a 1600 engine in 1963, the potential for development was too limited for it to lead the way in competition. At the same time, development of the SZ was restricted in line with Wunibald Kamm’s principles of aerodynamics.

To produce a successor to the SZ that could benefit from the Giulia’s engineering, Alfa Romeo took a radical new direction led by Giuseppe Busso, who had begun designing a new racing car in 1959. According to Busso, the inspiration came from the “ Tipo 750 Competizione “ developed in 1955, but whose box structure lacked rigidity. This is possibly what prompted Busso to adopt a completely new tubular chassis. He used the Giulia’s engineering, including the excellent twin-cam 1600 engine, but with independent rear suspension. For the body, it made sense to turn to Zagato who produced a perfectly executed berlinetta design, almost as if the SZ Coda Tronca had been a draft and this was the masterpiece. More than ever before, the purpose dictated the form, its restrained styling communicating efficiency, from the petite grille at the front to the cut-off tail at the rear. The combination of its tubular chassis and its Zagato body gave the automobile its name : TZ for Tubolare Zagato.

Focussed on the development of its touring cars at this time, Alfa Romeo looked to entrust the management of its racing cars to an external source, and found a perfect partner in Autodelta. Created in 1963 by Carlo Chiti and Ludovico Chizzola, Autodelta was a race-car preparer. Chiti and Chizzola learnt of Alfa Romeo’s desire to outsource its racing activity, and an agreement was struck with Orazio Satta to set up a partnership. This continued for some months before Alfa took a share in the company in 1964, becoming the sole shareholder in 1965. And so for its motorsport activities, Autodelta, led by Carlo Chiti, became Alfa Romeo’s armed wing. This was good news for the future of the TZ : with Autodelta in charge and supervising its production, the car was developed with care and competence. Being lightweight (weighing around 650 kg), the car reached speeds of over 210 km/h with ease, and higher speeds in cars where the 1600 engine had been tuned to produce over 150 bhp. The well-designed chassis gave the car great agility, and it worked wonders on both road and track, with an enviable record of success in competition. In 1963, the TZ won its class in the Coppa FISA at Monza, driven by Lorenzo Bandini. It won its class again in the 1964 Sebring 12 Hours. There was also an overall win in the 1964 Coupe des Alpes for Jean Rolland and Gaby Augias. Moreover, the TZ won its class several times between 1964 and 1967 in the most challenging and prestigious events, including Le Mans 24 Hours, the Targa Florio, the Nürburgring 1000km, the Tour de France Auto and the Sebring 12 Hours. In 1964, work began on an even more radical version, the TZ2. However, that’s another story….In its first version, 112 examples of the TZ were produced.

Leaving the factory on 11 March 1965, the Alfa Romeo TZ on offer was a rare example delivered new in France on 17 March 1965 to the marque importer SoFAR in Paris. This is confirmed in the Alfa Romeo archives that also record the car as being white with black interior. Remarkably, the copy of the first French title in 1966, after the car had been imported by SoFAR and homologated in France, allows us to trace its history. It was ordered by Maurice Zadouroff (the title records it as Zadourofr), living in Bidart, and the car was registered 195 KK 1964. Zadouroff was an important retailer from the Basque country, confirmed to us by Georges Debussy, the former dealer of the Alfa Romeo garage in Biarritz, who used to race in SZ and GTA models. He told us : “ At that time I had an Alfa enthusiast client who came to pay me a visit : I offered him the Tubolare Zagato on the strength of a picture on a postcard, and Mr Zadouroff ordered one from me straight away. I called S.O.F.A.R, the importer in Paris, and the boss, M. de la Charrière promised me a car as soon as one became available. Another of my good clients ordered an Alfa 2600 Zagato from me, again from a postcard as we didn’t have any brochures, and I put in a second order. Several months later the two cars arrived on a truck from S.O.F.A.R and the TZ was delivered to me in a magnificent Alfa red. Mr Zadouroff told me he didn’t want a red car as it would stand out too much. He asked me to have it repainted yellow and to have two vents put in the rear wings to attach his fishing rods to. This was a favourite pastime of his, and he made regular trips to St Jean Pied de Port in the car. A few years went by and then one fine day at the start of 1970 M. Zadouroff showed up at my garage and announced that he would like to sell me his TZ which proudly displayed 27,000 km on the clock. “ 15,000frs and it’s yours „. I didn’t have the money but as he insisted, I offered to pay him in three instalments, and the deal was done. It stayed in the lobby of my garage for a long time, not for sale, until the day when the Alfa Romeo dealer from Carcassone, Roger Debien, begged me to let him buy it when I decided to sell it. At the end of the 1970s or the start of the 1980s, when I was short of cash, I decided to sell the car. I was not short of offers, but as I had promised it to Debien, it was he who became the next owner for the sum of 200,000frs, which allowed me to invest in a new project. Some time later, when business was even tougher, with fierce competition and it was really hard to sell Alfas, I was invited to visit René Mauriès‘ fantastic Alfa Romeo collection in Albi (which would later be sold by Maître Poulain in Paris). I went there in my old Alfa 6 saloon that I hadn’t managed to sell and Mauriès took me aside and told me I should have kept my TZ as Roger Debien had just sold it for over 3 million francs (around 500,000 euros) to a foreigner. I felt the sky fall in on me, I couldn’t have been more shaken up, and the return journey to Biarritz in my old Alfa saloon was tough. The next day, I called Debien without talking to him of the fabulous price he had got for my ex-TZ, but I did ask if he could help me out by taking the old Alfa 6 of my hands ; he said he’d call me back and I’m still waiting for that call. „

Thanks to Mr Debussy’s account, we know that the car only had three owners before 1990, that it was probably red originally, and above all that the air vents seen in photos from the late 1980s were put in for a most unusual reason ! In Carcassone in 1990, in the hands of the Alfa Romeo dealer Roger Debien, the car was registered 4034 MZ 11. In February 1990 it was sold to the Van der Velden family, through the intermediary Guido Bartolomeo, a well-known connoisseur of the marque. The following year it was sold to an enthusiast and Swiss dealer from the Lausanne region (the car was registered in the Vaud VD district), who had the car restored and repainted red. The car was then sold to a German collector before heading to Italy to join the stable of our collector. Since that time, the car has been the subject of a high quality restoration project, emerging in almost the condition it was in the day it left the factory. The rear section has been corrected and no longer has the air vents. It has its original engine, impeccably presented in its tubular structure. The interior has the purposeful appearance of a racing car, with bucket seats in competition trim, large rev counter under a visor, facing the driver, and central speedometer, graduated to 260 km/h.

In superb condition and with continuous history, this TZ is undoubtedly one of the most stunning examples available. A sublime racing berlinetta, built to win, it will be welcomed at all the major historic events such as Tour Auto and Le Mans Classic. An icon of the marque, and a witness to the talent of the engineers and designers who built it, it has the aesthetics and the history, in addition to unrivalled driving qualities, to bestow on its new owner.The cars in this collection are all offered without contôle technique (MOT). New legislation prevents us from obtaining an MOT for a vehicle that is not registered in France».

Mit folgender Beschreibung: «In collaboration with Autodelta, a company led by ex-Ferrari engineer Carlo Chiti, Alfa Romeo developed the Tubolare Zagato, often referred to as the TZ1, to differentiate it from the later TZ2. The TZ1 was a result of length research, backed up by track and road tests carried out by Alfa Romeo and Zagato. The result was a sports racing car with a tubular spaceframe chassis, light all-aluminium coupe of only 660 kgs, the aluminium body itself only 92, and the tubular chassis only 62 kgs! The specification of the car is very impressive, with independent suspension and disc brakes all round, inboard at the rear, aerodynamic Zagato Kamm tail bodywork and Alfa Romeo’s venerable twin cam engine. Thanks to the light weight approach taken by Alfa Romeo and Zagato, the car was capable of 140 mph, helping it sweep their class at Le Mans, Sebring, the Nurburgring, the Targa Florio, and the Coupes des Alpes. Only a mere 101 examples were built making it an extremely rare proposition. This TZ1: Completed on 15th May 1964, this TZ1 was supplied new to the Frankfurt Alfa Romeo dealer, who quickly sold it to its first owner, Mr Hans Heinrich Stahlberg, an enthusiastic racer in Hamburg, Germany. Stahlberg entered his new TZ1 into the Internationales DMV Avus-Rennen races at the end of June where he finished 7th, then the DARM Nurburgring on 1st August, where he finished 16th. In November 1964 Matthias Wasel bought this Alfa Romeo, again an enthusiastic racer who used this car at five competition events throughout the 1965 season, finishing 3rd at the DARM GT Norisring in July. This TZ1 is accompanied by a substantial history file, including its original German Kraftfahrzeugbrief which documents two further owners before arriving with Wolfgang Heimeshoff in Essen. The car then passed through several additional German owners before being restored in 1980. Post restoration this TZ was purchased by Heinrich Kampfer in Switzerland who competed with the car at seven events throughout 1989, including Monza, Nurburgring, Zolder and Circuit de Montlhery. In 1992 the current Swiss owner added this car to his collection of over 40 cars, registering it with Swiss license ‘TI 66849’. This collection is maintained regardless of cost with two in-house mechanics looking after the cars. This Alfa Romeo has continuously been owned by enthusiastic racers, and the current owner is no different. He has regularly competed with the car over his 25 years of ownership. The car is presented today with a substantial history file, including original German registration documentation, and images from its competition history. This Alfa Romeo TZ1 is searching for its next owner, hoping to return to the track again, and now highly eligible, it is ready to compete at the 2018 Le Mans Classic, Tour Auto or Monterey Historics meetings!»

Mit folgender Beschreibung: «In 1959, Alfa Romeo embarked upon what would become a four-year intensive development programme in Italian racing before releasing the new Giulia TZ in June 1962. The nomenclature for the new Giulia was simple, ‘T’ for Tubolare, the space-frame chassis, and ‘Z’ for Zagato, the coachbuilder. Although the TZ carried over several components from the Giulia GTA, including a 1,570cc twin-cam engine, this was a purpose-built sports racing car, with a tubular spaceframe chassis, all-aluminium lightweight bodywork, disc brakes and independent suspension. The TZ1 weighed only 650 Kg’s with some cars fitted with Alfa Romeo’s twin-plug cylinder head, also used in the GTA, helping create more power, making the TZ very competitive. The bodywork for the TZ incorporated a style called ‘coda tronca’, which means ‘cut tail’ in English, otherwise known as the Kamm tail thanks to the many years of research by Wunibald Kamm. Zagato had previously shown the effectiveness of this styling design with the Alfa Romeo SZ ‘coda tronca’. The Giulia TZ debuted at the 1963 FISA Monza Cup where TZs took the first four places in the prototype category. Early in 1964 the TZ was homologated, with 100 units required, for the Gran Turismo category. This TZ1: This Alfa Romeo Giulia Tubolare Zagato, chassis AR 750046, was completed by the factory on 10th December 1964 before being delivered through SOFAR (Alfa Romeo France), to Mr Gaspin. The car was finished in blue with a black interior, consistent with today’s specification. In the early 1970’s the car was owned by Mr Graziano in Milan before returning to France on 17th January 1974 at which point it was registered with the license ‘346 QT 34’. The car remained in France until October 2003, during which time it competed at the Tour Auto, Le Mans Classic and Tour Espagne. Also during this time, the car changed hands to Mr Jean-Louis Laborde in 1975, who registered it with French license ‘7 PX 47’. Mr Laborde maintained ownership of 750046 until June 2002 when it was bought and registered to Mr Thierry Moriceau in Paris with license ‘465 PDD 75’. In December 2002, this car was featured in an article in Automobile Historique magazine in Germany. In October 2003, 750046 was purchased by well-known and respected classic car collector and competitor Mr Ross Warburton, who registered the car in the UK on license ‘KYY 85C’. Mr Warburton is an enthusiastic collector of classic cars, regularly seen competing in his 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/C, and spent much of his time with 750046 on the track, including the Tour Auto and many Masters Series events across Europe. The current owner purchased the car in 2012 and competed with 750046 at Le Mans, Paul Ricard and Spa-Francorchamps. In its current ownership, the car has been regularly maintained by Tim Samways Sporting & Historic Car Engineers in the UK with and engine rebuild completed over the winter of 2015-2016 and the most recent work in May 2017 including a gearbox rebuild. This car has been well maintained, focussing on historic competition with no expense spared.»

Bemerkungen: Beschreibung im The Revs Institute: «Alfa Corse didn’t take kindly to being shut down in 1951. Motor sport was lifeblood to Alfa Romeo engineers so when the factory racing branch ceased to exist, the engineers established an experimental department to continue as much in the same vein as management would tolerate. The remainder of the fifties saw, among others, the Disco Volante and succeeding sports cars, the 1900 sedan for long road races, and varying success. High gear was not reached until 1963 with a design that had been finished in 1959, appeared as a prototype in 1960 and then shelved while Alfa got the Giulia passenger car into production. The Giulia Tubolare Zagato began Alfa Romeo’s renaissance in motor sports. Because the GTZ had a single purpose, amenities were overlooked. The car was spartan, noisy and hot. The space frame of small bore tubing weighed little more than a hundred pounds but it had to carry only engine, suspension and running gear. Over that, Zagato craftsmen fashioned svelte but flimsy coachwork. The GTZ was formidably light and blindingly fast. Gear changes from 4th to 5th at 110 mph were easily wrought.
The display car was the most successful car of the four GTZs entered at Sebring in1964 by factory aided Scuderia Saint Ambroeus. Chuck Stoddard and Jim Kaser won the 1600 GT class, finishing the twelve hours with a maladjusted clutch which necessitated “crash-box” shifting. This GTZ’s only competition had come from an Abarth-Porsche, Jim Clark in a Lotus Cortina and a couple of Elans. Following the race, the car was bought by Dr. Paul Tenney with Alfa support for a season of successful SCCA racing. Early in 1965 the company decided to back a quasi-independent organization called Autodelta – in the charge of ex-Ferrari, ex-Alfa man Carlo Chiti – to turn the new competition car into a race winner. Enzo Ferrari had done this very well for Alfa in the thirties, and Chiti was to do likewise now. It was a new beginning. Alfa Romeo was back where it belonged».

The engine that comes in the car is # *00055* which is a correct and numbered TZ unit fitted with an original TZ head and correct Weber 45mm carburetors, cold air box, magnesium oil pan and magnesium bell housing and all as fitted when purchased from the Murphy Estate. The gearbox is a correct close-ratio 5-speed GTA and it has a 5.12 rear end, also as when purchased from the Estate. This is, in our professional opinion, one of the few TZ’s with a known traceable ownership history and one that has never been out of the USA since new, and is in remarkably sound and original condition»***.

After its discovery, which was described in Classic and Sportscar in the lost and found section, the car was mechanically fettled by a well known German Alfa specialist so it could perform on the road and in rallies. The bodywork was left as it was, old and with scars. It has since then participated in several events as the Vernasca Hill Climb in Italy.

Bemerkungen: 19.09.2008: Bonham’s, Goodwood 2008, verkauft für 254’500 Pfund. Mit folgender Beschreibung: «Though immensely successful as a competition car, Alfa Romeo’s Giulietta Sprint Zagato had been based on the road-going Giulietta Spider platform, a compromise that suited clients who wanted a touring car that could be raced at weekends. As the 1960s dawned though, the need to keep the Milanese marque’s name to the fore in international GT racing led to an entirely new Alfa Romeo, one designed from the outset with competition in mind. The result was that most desirable of post-war, four-cylinder Alfa Romeos – the Giulia Tubolare Zagato, or ‘TZ’ for short. In 1959, the Alfa Romeo experimental department under senior engineer Giuseppe Busso began work on a small-capacity Gran Turismo to contest the classic endurance races. First displayed, in prototype form at the Turin Motor Show in October 1962, this new competizione model took its ‘Giulia’ designation from Alfa Romeo’s recently introduced 1.6-litre passenger car range. The Giulia TZ was constructed around a state-of-the-art, multi-tubular spaceframe – hence the name tubolare – complemented by all-round independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. Like its SZ forebear, the TZ employed wind-cheating, lightweight, aluminium-alloy coachwork by Carrozzeria Zagato and took its designer’s already fanatical commitment to weight saving even further. As a result the TZ tipped the scales at an astonishing 660kg, some 75kg lighter than the SZ, and with as much as 160bhp available from its 1,570cc twin-cam four-cylinder engine in race tune, was the class of the GT field in its day. The production TZ was launched at the Geneva Salon in March 1963. Ferrari star Lorenzo Bandini gave the TZ victory on its racing debut at Monza in November that same year, with TZs filling the next three places, and from then on Alfa’s ‘baby GTO’ proved virtually unbeatable. In 1964, the cars made their international debut in the Sebring 12 Hours, winning their class. They won it again in the Targa Florio, the Nurburgring l,000kms and the Le Mans 24 Hours. The French rally crew Rolland/Augias won the Alpine classic after finishing second in the Tour de Corse and added success in the Tour de France and Paris l,000kms. Lower, lighter and even more powerful, the successor TZ2 model was introduced at the 1965 Monza l,000kms, and while the (retrospectively renamed) TZ1 continued in competition, the TZ2 was dominant by the autumn of that year. Embodying all the spirit and flair associated with the finest of Italian automotive design, the TZ was hand built in limited numbers, a mere 100 being required to satisfy the conditions for homologation. When production ceased in 1967, 112 TZ1s had been constructed by Alfa’s racing subsidiary, Autodelta, approximately one third of which are believed to have succumbed to the hazards of racing. Rare and highly sought after, the pretty and potent TZ remains a major force in historic motor sport, being eligible for a wide variety of the most prestigious events. Chassis number 080 was delivered new in April 1965 by French marque importer SOFAR (Société Française Alfa Romeo) to first owner Claude Journot. The car comes with continuous history of all owners from new and as the car never left France the French registration numbers of all owners with dates of ownership can be supplied to interested parties. In superb condition after a ground up meticulous restoration while in the ownership of Bernard Consten since 1990 the unmolested TZ1 chassis number 080 was to best of our knowledge never damaged in spite of some minor French period competition history including the 1965 Rallye de Lorraine, 1966 Cevennes Hill Climb and 1966 Tour de Corse. Following this concours standard restoration which is fully photo documented, including the original bare metal tubular chassis, the car fitted with its matching numbers engine tuned for competition use, won an award at the 2002 edition of the Saint Raphaël ‘Golf de Valescure’ concours d’élégance, which is a testimony to its current condition. It has completed less than 5.000km since restoration and participated in a trouble free 2008 edition of the Coupe des Alpes rerun with the 1958 event winner Bernard Consten himself at the wheel. A rare and sublime post war Alfa Romeo offered with a comprehensive file which includes a TZ1 sales brochure.»

Ach, wir wissen es doch auch nicht. Aber wenn im Minerbi steht: no news, dann, ja, was dann? Einverstanden, Minerbi wusste ja auch nicht alles, auch in seinem Buch von 1985 hat es einige Fehler. Doch lange hiess es: aufgepasst bei Chassisnummern, die nicht bei Minerbi aufgeführt sind. Aber im jüngsten Werk zum TZ von Vito Witting da Prato taucht 750080 ja dann auf, mit klaren Angaben, also wird das ja dann schon stimmen. Zumal der Alfa Romeo TZ – 750080 in den einschlägigen Quellen als «sauberes Exemplar» gilt. Trotz etwas fehlender Historie… – auch bei diesem Fahrzeug sind wir selbstverständlich auf zusätzliche Informationen angewiesen.

Beschreibung: «The 105 Series Giulia of Alfa Romeo was introduced at Monza in 1962. The super strong chassis was an evolutionary design, based on the previous Giulietta and 101 Series, however, the 105 introduced major suspension upgrades and, for the first time, disc brakes. A competition Giulia was introduced at the 1963 FISA Monza Cup. Named for its tubular space-frame chassis and striking aluminium Zagato coachwork, the Giulia TZ (Tubolare Zagato) took the first four places in its class. In 1964, the TZ was FIA homologated (100 units were needed for homologation to the Gran Turismo category) and immediately began logging its impressive string of race wins in Europe and North America. It is believed that, in the end, 100 or so examples were built between 1963 and 1967. A purpose-built competition GT, the TZ (often called the TZ-1 to distinguish it from the later TZ-2) development was guided by Autodelta, led by ex-Ferrari engineer Carlo Chiti. The TZ shared the same basic 1,570–cubic centimetre engine with the Sprint Speciale and Spider Veloce (later, with the addition of a twin-plug cylinder head). The transmission had heavy-duty, close-ratio gears and a very quick short-throw lever. Reduced bonnet height was achieved by tilting the engine in the frame. The front suspension was a similar design to the standard Giulia, while the rear was an elaborate independent competition type to reduce unsprung weight. TZs competed in the most important races, were driven by some of the best drivers at the time, and competed against the likes of Ferrari 250 GTOs, Shelby Cobras, Maserati Birdcages, and Porsche 904s. At the 1964 Targa Florio alone, Porsche took the first two spots with their 904s, while Alfa Romeo’s TZs finished in 3rd and 4th with TZs. Ferrari, with their 250 GTOs, took 5th, 9th, 10th, and 12th. Class wins at Sebring, Le Mans, and the Nürburgring that year also solidified the TZ’s position in the annals of motorsport.
A SEASONED CAMPAIGNER: The TZ offered here was built in August 1963 and delivered to its first owner, Karl Foitek, in Switzerland. Foitek was a four-time Swiss Champion (racing and sports cars) with a passion for fast Italian cars. Chassis number 750087 was later sold to Peter Schetty, who was most famous for racing Shelby Mustangs with Scuderia Filipinetti and who also spent several years with Ferrari in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Schetty traded chassis number 750087 to Uli Maurer in part exchange for a Shelby GT350. Maurer owned this car for just over a year before selling it to James Bernard Fortmann of team Bardahl Switzerland. Fortmann would send the car immediately to Autodelta for preparation, ahead of a busy summer of racing. In just a few months, this car would finish 5th in Class (Prototype 1600) at the 1968 Nürburgring 1,000 KM, a race where non-finishers included the Jo Siffert Porsche 908 and the David Skailes Ferrari 250 LM. It would then race at the Hockenheim Ring in the ACS Swiss Championship before competing in the Grand Prix of Mugello. Unfortunately, an accident in practice damaged the rear of the car, and it was unable to start the race. Fortmann once again sent chassis number 750087 to Autodelta for repairs following its successful summer campaign. The car then passed through a number of Swiss owners, during which time the original engine was removed. In 1983, this car passed into the ownership of Ernst Hugentobler, who would keep the TZ for 17 years, before it was purchased by J. Pas, its first non-Swiss owner. Mr Pas has attended a number of clubs and rallies in the car throughout Europe and has sourced an original TZ engine (from chassis number 750066).
With just two owners in the last 32 years, chassis number 750087 is a well-cared-for example of an incredibly rare Alfa Romeo icon. Eligible for nearly every prestigious event around the globe for cars of this era, from the Monterey Historics to the Tour Auto and Le Mans Classic, this Alfa Romeo TZ will be both a welcome entrant and a thrill to drive».

Beschreibung gemäss www.fantasyjunction.com (Stand August 2019): «A marvel of period racing technology, highly competitive on the race track, and stunningly beautiful still decades after introduction, the Alfa Romeo TZ remains today an icon of sports car design. Resplendent in handmade Zagato alloy coachwork expertly draped over state-of-the-art mechanicals, lightweight construction, and cleverly integrated aerodynamic features, this confluence of motoring excellence brilliantly formed the legendary status of the Alfa Romeo TZ. Rare and specialized, the TZ, while a part of the Giulia series, was really only so in name alone. Unlike the production Giulia, the TZ was conceived and developed as an all new independent design, beginning with an ultra-lightweight handmade tubular steel chassis, constructed of carefully triangulated tube sections. The sophisticated frame design resulted in a remarkably strong unit weighing in at a lithe 125 lbs. Indeed, even the name Tubulare Zagato, announced the importance of the tubular frame construction to the essence of the car. The chassis design employed clever use of structural members allowing for flexibility and durability when mated to the aluminum body. Each TZ was fitted with unique front and rear independent suspension, front disc brakes and rear inboard disc brakes, with much of the parts exclusively constructed for this series using light alloy Electron components to save weight. The only nod to the Giulia namesake was the robust Alfa Romeo twin cam engine. Construction of these unique cars was the passion of competition engineer Carlo Chiti of Autodelta, an Alfa Romeo factory race team tasked with developing cars specifically for racing purposes. The pinnacle of these cars was outfitted with twin-plug cylinder head engines developing 170hp. The sumptuous aerodynamic Zagato body featured a dramatic Kamm tail or “Coda Tronca” which allowed fast air to quickly return, pressing against the flat rear panel, effectively pushing the car forward. The resultant aerodynamic benefit increased top speed while reducing fuel consumption. This feature coupled with the low roof, covered headlights, and long tapered body lines, significantly aided high speed performance. Weighing in at less than 1500 lbs, the light and nimble TZ was not only quick, it was also capable of top speeds of 140 mph with remarkable stability. Though expensive when constructed, these highly desirable cars were scooped up by capable privateers, racing these exceptional cars and winning at prestigious world venues, including sweeping their class at Le Mans, racing at Sebring, the Nurburgring, Targa Florio, and the Coupe des Alpes. Extraordinarily rare and sought after by top collectors worldwide, under 100 examples were originally constructed, many of which remain secured today in museums or private collections.

The history of chassis number AR750094 has been documented by a variety of sources, former owners, and corroborated by Alfa Romeo TZ experts whom, over the years, have contributed early ownership research and findings that collectively define the lineage of this extraordinary car. The history begins with the build of chassis 094 at Autodelta, completed on May 11, 1965. The car was finished in white with black interior and dispatched to SOFAR, the Alfa Romeo France central dealership on May 14, 1965. Subsequently, the car was registered on July 15, 1965 with registration 111MK74. By May of 1971 the car is documented with a known registration record indicating Guy Arquier of Lasbordes, France, as owner, with registration 3307 RZ 31. Monsieur Arquier (confirmed by his written statement delivered by email to a former owner) purchased the car from a Chambery agent who had the car trucked to Toulouse where Monsieur Arquier remembers inspecting the car, finding no damage or evidence of compromise, and retaining original components. Satisfied with his findings, Arquier thus purchased the car, continuing to use it as a rally car in European events for many years. On September 15, 1989, Monsieur Arquier sold the car to Pieter Boel of Hilversum, Holland. At that time the car was fitted with a roll bar and was painted red and trimmed with a brown corduroy interior (see photos). Being complete but in need of a restoration, the car was restored on or around 1994 by Daytona Garage Leiden, in the Netherlands.

On or around 1996, Mr. Boel is believed to have sold the car to Rinus Belt, also of Holland, who performed additional restoration work on the car. Upon examining the car, Mr. Belt reported 094 as having been an “absolutely untouched original car” prior to his restoration. During the restoration, Mr. Belt engaged a range of experts to prepare the car for historic racing and European rallies. At this time, the car was painted white, with a racing inspired red stripe engulfing the front of the car at the grille and tapering to a single broad stripe across the top of the car. On March 11, 1998 the car was sold at the Brooks Geneva Auction. Shortly after in January 1999, Rudy Pas consigned the car for sale, selling it to US collectors Susan Dixon and Keith Goring. The car would remain in their ownership for the next decade, before ultimately arriving for consignment in 2009 at Fantasy Junction. The current owner, a highly respected car collector, esteemed Zagato aficionado, and Pebble Beach Best of Show winner purchased the car from Fantasy Junction in 2009. In recent years the car has been the subject of a comprehensive restoration to the high standard shown here today.

Having some of the finest cars in his collection and the means to prepare his cars to exquisite levels, the current owner elected to restore this TZ to exceptional cosmetic condition, with high regard for originality, but with a focus on creating a drivable car that can be more readily enjoyed with just the right blend of carefully executed, but reversible enhancements to the original TZ drivetrain. Engaging some of the most respected and talented craftsmen in the world, the car was photo documented and sensitively disassembled during the restoration, being careful to identify and preserve so many of the important and rare TZ specific components. During the restoration, great care was made to address and preserve the original alloy body panels including restoration for the inside of the hood, which was done to a very high and correct standard. The body was properly prepped and painted to high specifications including gently forming wider rear wheel openings to accommodate wider rear tires, without significantly compromising the original looks of the car. Addressing the hood, the outside leather straps were removed smoothing the side profile presentation, and pit pins cleverly installed at the bottom fastening points. The front side marker lights were removed and the factory openings filled with removable panels painted body color. Lastly, the wipers were removed. Throughout the restoration process, every effort was made to retain the original floors and original light alloy body as well as the correct ribbed construction floor and the original heat shielding under the driver’s seat. The correct chassis number as originally stamped on the driver’s side transverse bulkhead chassis tube is visible, as is the corresponding Zagato 827 body number stamped on the passenger side, among other places about the car. During the restoration of the interior, every aesthetic detail was carefully evaluated in order to retain the integrity of the original, while adding a few material refinements to update the cabin. Restoration efforts continued throughout the process addressing the suspension, exhaust (reconstructed to original specifications to a very high standard), and brakes, resulting in a beautifully composed car of very high visual standards. In April 2019, the car was serviced by a top California restoration expert who installed a new battery, replaced all fluids including ATE brake fluid, clutch fluid, Valvoline Racing VR-1 oil, filter, and coolant. The master cylinder was rebuilt/resleeved and the brakes inspected and tested, including replacing a return brake spring.

Today this stunning Alfa Romeo TZ delivers an exquisite visual impression of high quality and exceptional refinement. The deep red paint is dramatic and beautifully applied. The legendary Zagato coachwork is both daring and elegant particularly in deep red, stretching out toward the Kamm tail. The finish throughout the exterior is balanced by the correct aluminum window trim surrounding the clear aft Plexiglas side panels, door glass, and correct windscreen. As seen in later series cars, the door glass is not fixed, rather the glass can be raised and lowered, an important and rare convenience feature for warm weather driving. Although the exterior finish is exceptionally fine, a very minor bit of electrolysis is evident on the surface of the fuel filler door, but otherwise, the exterior is glossy, beautifully polished, wonderfully trimmed, and visually stunning. The Carello headlights and correct tail lights are in excellent condition. The headlight covers, teardrop hood, and distinctive Alfa Romeo grille opening are in perfect harmony with the overall body proportions. The uniquely finished and highly desirable 6” x 15” cast Campangolo wheels are in excellent condition, shod with correct Dunlop L series front tires, and wider Dunlop M series rear tires. The M series rear tires have been carefully shaved to facilitate fitting in the rear wheel openings. The wheels are finished in a period appropriate color that has also been applied to the recessed grille opening, creating a clever harmony between the wheel openings and the grille opening. Included with the car are front turn signals, rear license plate lights, rear Giulia TZ plate, and air box. All other exterior touches have been restored to high standards. Inside, the interior is an impressive blend of originality and tasteful upgrades done to the highest standards, while delivering a hint more refinement than the originally sparse interior. The correct bucket seats are covered in high quality medium-bead beige corduroy with excellent fit, proper button detail, and refined perimeter piping. The seats are surprisingly comfortable with good side support and a comfortable back angle. The floor is covered with a handsome set of tailored floor mats and the transmission tunnel retains the correct contours. The remaining black interior displays correct textures and finishes. The original painted fiberglass dashboard is presented with correct Jaeger instruments, excellent black dial faces, ivory nomenclature, and traditional ivory needles. A 14” wood rimmed steering wheel completes the competition look and feel, further echoed by the spare tire, held in place with a correct cast aluminum tie down. The overall interior presentation is excellent with no significant signs of use evident on any of the material surfaces. Tilting forward the beautifully formed alloy hood, a daring deviation sits boldly amidst the original tube frame construction. Without compromising the original construction, a cleverly composed Alfa Romeo twin cam, twin-spark, variable timing 2 Liter engine has been freshly rebuilt, installed, and detailed to very high standards, adorned with a combination of specially made vintage pieces matched with original TZ engine components. The decision to install this engine was predicated on enhancing the car for events and touring. An original pair of very rare and highly desirable and correct for TZ 45 DCOE twin Weber carburetors with buttresses (together a $13,000.00 combination) are mounted in place using a specially made intake manifold, breathing through newer air cleaners. Additionally, an MSD unit has been installed under the dash to aid ignition. The engine was built with specifically chosen pistons, higher performance cams, and proper fittings to ensure optimum power output. As a result, the engine is quite potent for street use, but can readily be removed should a future owner wish to power the car with a standard 1600cc engine. Throughout the engine compartment a blend of carefully selected contemporary mechanical parts have been united with rare and original TZ components including the original radiator (minus the shroud and ducting but using a modern electric fan), a correct magnesium TZ oil pan, a correct and properly mounted TZ oil cooler, a correct heater core and valve (in place but the plumbing removed), and a correct cast magnesium differential housing. The 5-speed gearbox is a correct type from this period (number 03805) with correct housing, built with a diaphragm-type clutch. Construction in every respect is exemplary with all hardware, lines, wiring, and finishes correctly composed reflecting both authenticity and detail in keeping with the skillfully added enhancements. Upon the cars arrival to Fantasy Junction, Alfa Romeo TZ expert, Marnix Dillenius did a thorough inspection of the vehicle. The undercarriage confirms a considerable amount of attention has been afforded in detailing and care during the restoration, displaying only moderate use since completion. The floors are original and contain the correct ribbed features with no evidence of structural compromise. Both the revised new components and original construction blend quite well even in the undercarriage, including an expertly replicated original style exhaust and muffler exiting from the newer exhaust manifold. The front and rear suspension are correct (though not retaining the original front suspension cross drilled suspension bolts) and the curved lower A-arms are in place. Both front and rear suspension feature four correct Koni Classic shock absorbers. The brakes were restored retaining the extremely rare front brake dust/water eliminator shields and the correct aluminum front brake caliper holds and piston modules. At the rear, the brake caliper holds have been converted to cast iron, a common update as alloy parts are not readily available. An upgraded ATE brake master cylinder has been installed, an improvement that many experts agree is essential for these cars, while retaining the correct TZ type emergency brake components. Entering and starting the car is a feast for the senses. Just moments after easing into the form fitting seats, the jubilant engine barks to life letting out a roar of power that immediately fills the cockpit. Settling into a warmed idle, the exhaust note is both deep and satisfying, without being too loud for driver and passenger to exchange lively conversations, due in part to the added sound insulation. The roll-up windows further aid in sound insulation and, compared with the constant chatter of plexiglass and thin frames, the interior experience is much more composed, even at idle. Once operating temperatures are achieved, the gearbox smoothly engages and you are rapidly underway. The engine has been built with performance in mind, and this becomes quickly evident as power comes on strong, with strong acceleration and rapid throttle response. As confidence builds with the car, the power and handling become even more evident as the road opens up and one is enticed to extend their enthusiastic driving skills. The expansive glass offers a great view of the road, as you enjoy the sinister elegance and enchanting magic that Alfa Romeo and Zagato have captured with these superlative cars.

With a combined lineage of Alfa Romeo racing performance and breathtaking Zagato design, the TZ truly embodies the spirit of motorsports excellence. Having conquered world renown racing circuits and evolved into legendary cars, remarkable examples such as this are rarely available for private sale. With its known history and beautiful restoration, this exceptional Alfa Romeo TZ is ready to deliver a unique and unforgettable ownership experience sure to delight the next fortunate motorsports enthusiast».

Bemerkungen: (History & present whereabouts unknown*). Beschreibung gemäss www.francolembo.com (Stand August 2019): «The Tubolare produced by Autodelta and designed by the famous Elio Zagato was equipped with the twin-cam made entirely in aluminium and 1,570 cc common to the standard model. The car was built entirely in aluminium foils on a special tubular steel frame, disc brakes (in board for the rear) and independent suspensions on all wheels. The model was very lightweight at just 660 kilos and could reach a top speed of 216 km/h. The motor is placed at an angle under the cover to maximize the flow of cooling air.Its design benefited from an advanced aerodynamic development with a truncated rear end called „coda tronca“ in order to improve aerodynamics and boost its performance. This solution had been developed by Zagato for its competition cars based on the work of aerodynamic engineer Kamm. The model was presented at the Monza Speedway during a competition organized by FISA. The Alfa Romeo TZ easily won the top four places in the sport-prototype category. After her homologation in the sport category, she won almost all the competitions where she will compete, in Europe and North America. Only 112 units of this model were produced between 1963 and 1965. In fact it was a car designed for competition, yet sold in 112 horsepower base, but quickly prepared by the racing team and especially by the factory. His record is simply impressive. The greatest pilots have used it, including the famous French Jean Rolland . Original ‘s Tubolare are very rare today, their history in competition means that two thirds of them have survived. Our car chassis number AR 750098 was produced on March 3 /1965 and delivered the 5 March in France in Paris covered with a classic Rosso 501. She has only known three owners and has never left the hexagon. Its original engine was optimized in 2013 with a dual-ignition cylinder head by the famous German specialist Furiani, he continu servicing the car since. The car will be delivered with its complete file: invoices, history, European traffic certificate, Alfa Romeo certificate, expert report on approved value, FIA papers during F period. Eligible for all high-level international events such as the Tour Auto and Le Mans Classic, it will delight its new owner with its versatility and performance».
