Howdy folks,

I have had the good fortune of acquiring a stash of vintage Alfa racing pictures. These images I believe were taken by Don Black when he was the Technical Director for Alfa US.

I am interested in selling very high quality copies of some of these images to those who may be interested.

At the same time I would like to present raw unedited copies of these images to all of you knowledgeable Alfisti out there in return for any info you may have about the cars, drivers, and events.

I know, I know this post is useless without pics...

Coming up next.

Interesting to see how TZ-1_750007 looks now

Dear members,

Interesting to be able to compare the TZ-1_750007 with startnumber #55 at Sebring back then in 1964 before the fire and a car carrying the chassisnumber #750007 in 2010.

Ciao, Olaf

incredible shots!

I'm transfixed! These shots are remarkable, thank you for sharing.
Looks like Carlo Chiti is your "big" guy. I'd not seen the "riveted" rear windows before. Love the time capsule aspect of all of these. Please say there are more...

I agree. Here's his resume from Fusi's book "Tutte le vetture..." (p.832 lists his involvement with the TZs at Autodelta).

I wonder how much horsepower the shaving of the fan blades brought. The dust seal on U-joint of the steering column is also interesting.

Thanks for sharing these fantastic pictures!

Best early colour photos of TZs that I've ever seen! Thank you so much for sharing. As an aside, some of the photos appear to show #55 with and without knock-off wheels. When did the transition occur?

... and how the car with chassis nummer #750007 it is looking now.
Uh... 750007 is gone.. doesn't exist anymore... burnt out at that same 1964 Sebring race...

It's demolition has been confirmed by Alfa Romeo.

Interestingly enough... there are at least two cars with S/N 750007 at this moment...

I guess the proper phrasing should be "and how one of the cars that impersonate chassis number 750007 is looking now." :D

Please pay attention that the first batch of slides refer to Sebring 64 and a second one to Sebring 65. The confusing feature is that the TZ used (partially) the same race numbers. In 65, the cars were fibreglass bodied, and without Rudge wheels.

Hello Jack,

Because I haven't got the information and/or documentation from Alfa Romeo that states that this car doesn't exist anymore, I will stay cautious with my words. May I ask what makes you so sure?

Ciao, Olaf

Olaf,

Just ask anyone at the AR historical departments (museo etc) about 750007... first reply, without any hesitation: That car was destroyed!
