More pictures and part of the history
Here are more pictures. I had the opportunity to check the chassisnumber of this TZ-2. The number on the tube was difficult to read but it was there. It states that this is #750104. At home I had a look in my documentation.
Marcello Minerbi in the book 'Alfa Romeo Zagato SZ-TZ' (1985) says about chassisnumber 750104;
'Maybe TZ-2 prototype. Destroyed?'
Ben Hendriks in 'Het Klaverblaadje' issue nr. 60 (december 1992) says about chassisnumber 750104 (English translation by Zagato_Olaf;
'The archives of Alfa Romeo discribe this TZ-2 as a 'test example'. From records, supplied by Carrozzeria Zagato, it turns out that this was the first TZ-2 with a glassfibre body and the second TZ-2 ever built. It is likely that this car was supplied with engine # AD 106 (AD = Autodelta) and had the licenseplate UD-111645. If this is correct, the extra headlights were a later addition. The history of this car is unknown.'
Phillipe Olczyk in the book 'Alfa Romeo TZ (2002) says about chassisnumber 750104;
'2002 TZ2. Alloy with V8 Alfa 33 engine. Found in Brazil.'
More info is on its way
