1963 Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ - what if ?


Recommended Posts

Another die-cast from the "Alfa Romeo Centenary Collection" the Alfa Giulia TZ (later renamed TZ 1 - after the TZ 2 came out) - made by IXO.



What if... Scuderia Filipinetti (Swiss racing team from 1962 - 1973) had bought a TZ in 1963 and had taken part in the 1963 Tour de France de l'Automobile?

It probably would have looked like this: red with their typical white stripe, additional Marchal lights and a fine steel tube for the exhaust were added, the race numbers came from the winning Ferrari 250 GTO (Colorado decals), Filipinetti decals from my spares.

Here it is race-ready (fictitious):

The Alfa TZ-1 has gotta be one of my favorites.  The Scuderia Filipinetti markings are a perfect choice.  Thank you sharing.

Thanks, Gary - this is a fictitious car (the 1/18 Tecnomodel Giulietta coda tronca from LeMans 1963 gave me the inspiration for this)
