1/4 1967 Alfa Romeo 33/2 Long Tail Zagato Le Mans.
This original wind tunnel / styling model was crafted by Centro Stile Alfa Romeo. This fiberglass model is large – about one quarter scale, measuring over 3.5 feet long (43” / 110 cm). It was previously owned by Zagato coachbuilding, and comes with a letter from the man at Zagato who received it from Mr. Gastroni, who worked for Alfa Centro Stilo in the 1960s.
Showing are two great reference photos –
- The first one is Carlo Chiti – head of AutoDelta (Alfa) in the late 1960s/early 1970s standing beside Tipo 33 styling models. To his left beside his hand is a styling model for a Porsche 908/03 – so he must have been comparing the competition! It is hard to know for sure but this actual model might be in the group – on the second row from the top, on the far left.
- The second image shows a similar or possibly the same model again on display (top left corner) beside the real car. (K02U)
