Thanks for posting this info. The car seems to be fitting for Zehender, who had quite a bit of a racing history, pre- and post-war (some on Alfa Romeo).

It seems that Giuseppina Turretta (owner of 915694) was the wife of Count Giovanni Agusta, founder of Costruzioni Aeronautiche Agusta in Samarate.

In a previous post, PG1964 indicate that a owner of 915766 was Umberto Torretta, rather Umberto Turretta ... brother of Giuseppina ???

Zehender and 915694

Grazie Pévé!

Please share also the date the Torino plate (TO94525) was issued. That date should appear fairly near the top of the PRA document in its own location. This will likely tell us if the car was loaned by Zehender or perhaps Magliano to either Hayworth/Khan or Alfa Romeo for the purposes of the newsreel?

Goffredo Zehender was the named customer for at least three 6C2500 cars in records still existing with Alfa Romeo. This was the earliest of the three. He was photographed with others examples as well. He may have received this car at a discount or as a defacto dealer or as payment or part-payment for other activities? He would perhaps also have been able to use some form of a PROVA plate on the car if he used it at all. From data collected about Torino plates numbered near to this, I suspect the TO94525 was first issued to Maglione?

I feel certain to have seen the name "Giuseppina Turretta" in the past, but do not seem to have it recorded in my computer … until now. I will try to pay more attention when (if) I run across it again.

If the Varese plate is not recorded in the Torino record, we may be able to find it anyway? However, I have found that modern requests for a visura (from the PRA) do not always include all the pages of the document. If you did not receive at least three pages (one of which may have been blank?) then there may be more for us if another request is made at no cost (?) if you can show the document you paid for is incomplete?

Oh … and it seems this car (915694) exists today?

Di nuovo, la ringrazio!

John

Grazie TISUP!

Thank you for sharing!

From this portion of the PRA-Torino record, we know that Mario Magliano's father was "Michele" and that Michele was no longer alive at the time of the record date of 7 May 1949. Occasionally such notes are not correct, so this detail is not absolutely certain. Also note that the 7 May record date actually documents official legal actions of 6 May.

We also know that Goffredo Zehender's father's name was "Rodolfo" … with the same caveat.
Note also that some period references spell Zehender's given name as "Geoffredo".

The Torino plate (TO94525) was issued 6 May 1949 for Mario Magliano, so he was the legal owner of the car when it was used in the newsreel footage.
