Maybe they made a new plate, after exporting it.
I have no idea of the posible life of the car after I sold it.

Alex.
Acabo de recordar otra cosa de la historia de mi coche.
Como te dije, yo se lo compré a Antonio Albacete, mecánico/piloto, fundador de ME-PRE, taller donde se preparaban coches de competición para circuitos sobre todo.
Cuando yo compré el coche, el morro estaba cortado, después de algún accidente, y lo tenian con algo parecido al 124 sport.
Antonio no sabía como era el original, o no quiso restaurar el coche, y desde luego en España no había nada de repuesto para un Zagato.
Yo traje de Italia todos los recambios para el morro, a excepción de los intermitentes que no pude conseguir en la época, y motivo por el que se pusieron los que se van en la foto, que iban atornilados a la chapa que sujetaba los faros en lugar de sujetarse por abajo.
Los plásticos del frontal fueron muy dificiles de conseguir, pero los encontré en una filial de Alfa, en la via Appia, en Roma, y me traje tres juegos.
El primero me duro un suspiro, porque el coche no tenia paragolpes, y a la primera de cambio, el que aparcó delante se los cargó.
Entonces, y antes de que me rompieran otra vez los plásticos, y en el mismo taller donde arreglaron el morro, me adaptaron un paragolpes de R 18, que era lo que menos mal parecía, y que es el que se ve en las fotos.
Después ya no me volvieron a romper los plásticos.
Toda esta historia despierta en mi la nostalgia del Zagato, que sin duda fué el mas exclusivo de los deportivos que tuve (que fueron unos cuantos).
Espero ver mas fotos del proceso de restauración, pero las de piel de toro, por alguna razón, no las puedo abrir.
Un saludos cordial a todos los alfistas.


Sorry for the spanish, has been the emotion of writting.
I'll translate tomorrow.

Alex.
I just remembered something else in the history of my car.
Like I said, I bought it from Antonio Albacete, mechanic / driver, founder of ME-PRE, workshop where racing cars prepared especially for circuits.
When I bought the car, the nose was cut after an accident, and had something like 124 sport.
Antonio did not know how was the original, or would not restore the car, and certainly in Spain there was no replacement for a Zagato.
I bought in Italy all spare parts for the nose, except for intermittent I could not get at the time, and this is the reason why I got those in the picture, they would be screwed to the plate that held the headlights and not the original ones to grip below.

The plastic front were very difficult to get, but I found a subsidiary of Alfa, on Via Appia in Rome, and I brought three sets.
I mount the front plastics, and because the car had no front bumpers, in the first opportunity, whichever was parked ahead of my car, broke them..
Then, and before they broke me again those plastics, and in the same workshop where I fixed the nose, I adapted an R 18 bumper, which was the least bad seemed, and that is the one seen in the photos.
After I, nobody will break the plastic anymore.
In the meanwhile, I continued searching the original bumpers, but I sold the car to Antonio Albacete again, before I found them.
This whole story arouses my nostalgia Zagato, which certainly was the most exclusive sports I had (which were a few).
I hope to see more pictures of the restoration process, but in Piel de Toro, for some reason, I can not open your pics.
A cordial greetings to all Alfisti.
