GIULIETTA SZ CODA TRONCA
The Alfa Sprint Zagato is a rare car and with only 30 examples built, the Coda Tronca is an even rarer car. The factory delivered this car to the Swiss Alfa Romeo importer on 16 February 1962. Copies of the customs documents that have been preserved reveal that the car was delivered to its first owner, Mr P. Scaramiglia, on 11 April 1962. Pierre Scaramiglia was a Swiss race driver who used the car at various national and international racing events. The second owner was from Geneva who used the car on a daily basis during many years, until the engine broke down. The engine was replaced by a Giulietta 1300 engine and then sold to a Swiss collector. In 2003, the car passed into the hands of the latest owner, a prestigious collector. His first move was to embark on a major mechanical revision, which began by trying to find an appropriate engine from the 120 series. When the engine was ultimately found, a Swiss Alfa Giulietta specialist fitted it with new parts. The bills more than 33,000 Swiss francs reveal the details of this operation. The car was on display at various car concourses and events. At the Villa d'Este 2006 car show, the car was awarded the "Targa d'Argento - Mention of Honour".
