martinue There are enough photos on the web that show the front and side of the Rolland car with n. 120 at the '61 Coupe des Alpes. A better resolution of your photo would show the edge on the side, typically for Coda Tonda SZs, and the small C-pillar other than on SVZs, too.

2000 touring sp Thanks a lot.
For me this rear end in a SVZ.
It’s to long for at SZ. In my opinion-.
But thank you for you extensive file.

martinue 700 AV 04 is the '61 registration of the SZ Jean Rolland drove in early '61. The photo above is from the '610624-28 Coupe des Alpes. Rolland might have destroyed this car at the '690709 Tropée d'Auvergne - 6h de Charade at Clermont-Ferrand. After this event with an accident Rolland is listed with *00138* only.

2000 touring sp Thank you Martin. I had it a 08780. But the filler cap make me uncertain. .
Sorry Richard for the SZ could not see it was a SZ.
Roland had some start in SVZ before he received an SZ, I thought it was one of those.
Ma I put in another of Rolland. Not a very good picture, but the rear, must be a SVZ

martinue 687 MR 22 is the '70 registration of SVZ *08780*.
953 AV 04 is the '61 registration of SZ *00138*, Rolland died in '67.

2000 touring sp Thank you Ronny
Do you by the way also know the vin / chassis number of the Stern-Burggraf SVZ.
It was my best gees, the Roland, I don’t think it’s so far from you picture.
Do you have any clues who it then may be, and what SVZ chassis number must be.

AlfaRonny 687 MR 22 doesn't look like Jean Rolland to me:

AlfaRonny #52 SVZ = 19580727 Trophées d'Auvergne - 3 Heures de Clermont-Ferrand / Stern-Burggraf (11oa)

2000 touring sp Richard I dont think it was Ruedi’s intention to highjack this tread. But he only wanted to share an address where there could be some pictures of SVZ that could be of interest.

I have 2 sets of pictures that I am unable to identify.
I hope someone are able to identify these 2 SVZ
The first 2 I think is the 02348 Berney car. The reason for this is the large filler cap that can be seen in one of the pictures.
The sauce is het K for one , and for the other can’t remember. But the start number is the same #52 in Pau . but the reference to driver is Stern-Burgraff 3 timer ved Auvergne Pau 1958

The other I found on a French web page.
I think it’s a SVZ. And the driver is Jean Rolland - Gabriel Augias , I think judged from the face behind the wheel Reg.687MR 22

richards All

Really happy for the share of info -- much new and very interesting.

However, the thread title is SVZ not SZ, may I suggest, very gently, a new thread for SZs is started....

Lightweight Meeting at Gaisberg

All, last weekend a couple of lightweight Giuliettas met at the old brewery building at the bottom of the Gaisberg outside Salzburg in Austria for a foto shoot. See attached a sample. This location used to be the paddocks of the hillclimb race. There will be an article later this year in the Austro Classic magazine (albeit in German) to celebrate the 60th Bday, so if some of you are interested in more fotos....

2000 touring sp Hello to you all.
I have to admit I have been a little confused, by the information about the Richard Ballantine car.
So I went to the addict, to find an old Giuliettaletta number issue 82. The jubilee number.
Here is what Adrian B Smits wrote about the Richard Ballantine car.
As I understand it has nothing to do with *02028 or the Croiseer-Liekens car.In the Ruedi link is there pictures if that car
Please correct me if I have misunderstood something

SVZ Chassis No. 08780 post 630: Quote from Giuliettaletta issue 82
This chassis number is based on a 25.3.1959 Veloce. Original colour was "bianco ambra". Bonham’s offered this car in their Dec 2003 sale. According to Letta No. 80 (Winter 2003) the car came from a Nazareth-Belgium collection in Sept 2003 with licence plate 2033RG64. Estimate was EUR 90,000. As published in Giuliettaletta No. 81. Richard Ballantine, its new Colorado/USA based owner, paid EUR 75,000. He also gave the author detailed info early 2004 about the car and its history. He bought the car from former owner Luc Laureys of Belgium via Bonham's. Bonham’s claim to have found that it is not the Consten-Hebert car, but they think it could be the one driven by Pasquier with race No. 128 in the Sept 1960 Tour de France (see Hughes/da Prato, p.41). Contacts between the author Bernhard Consten in Marts 2004 revealed that the body of the Pasquier car indeed is the body of the Consten car NO.04717! During the winter of 1958-59 this body was put on another chassis and the "new" car was sold to Mr. Pasquier. It was licensed 748 DZ 37, which is the departement around Tours in France. If we speculatively assume that Pasquier sold the car within France, it cannot be excluded that it ended up in Pau with Mr. Murraciole who was a confirmed owner of No.08780-
Mr. Ballantine confirmed that the car had been in France most of its life. And that it was owned by a Mr. Alain Murraciole in Pau.
The rear end seems to have been modified at a certain stage at a certain stage after the initial rebuild by Zagato as the typical Zagato tubular framework has been partly replaced by angle iron in this area.
Also the tail lights are now protruding, which is not Zagato like.
The car looks very original even though its age is showing.
The period Amadori wheels look good on the car. Ballantine is checking his car for Zagato body number. The AR number is stamped on the usual RH side of the fire wall with the “E” between AR 1493 and 8780.
The provenance of this car seems perfect even though it stories between 1960-1980 may not be completely
Clear but hopefully we will learn more as the car is prepared for the road

2000 touring sp Thank you Ruedi for an interesting link

tubut Thanks to the outstanding Lancia book decribed in this thread, I became aware of the Revs Digital Library at Stanford University, and did a search for "Alfa Zagato" for years 1958-67, which produced 182 results (try it yourself using this link) -- with many pictures I have never seen before. I'm sure different search terms would provide different (more) results, and I'm equally sure some of you will enjoy digging through the library as much as I did (and do).

Now, because they are a research institute, I would hope that I and others respect their licensing terms for commercial and non-commercial use and provide them with feedback of any inaccuracies in the descriptions (and maybe even help them extend their knowledge base by providing them with the chassis numbers of the cars).

Here are a few teasers with what I consider dramatic images (cropped and/or resized from the original) with the direct links and image information below the pictures:

dr4n6 I will be running my SVZ in the Copperstate 1000 next month. If anyone in the Phoenix area is interested stop by and say hello, as I will have the car on display at the Tempe Diablo Stadium on April 9th. A couple of my fellow rally mates will be bringing a Lancia Stratos, a nice Giulietta and a Cisitalia Nuvolari Spyder as well.
