One of three works Alfa Romeo Tipo 33/2 factory entries into the 1968 24 Hours of Daytona, this beautiful machine is up for sale at Fiskens. And we would very much like to have it, please!

Alfa Romeo entered three Works Tipo 33/2s into the ’68 24 Hours of Daytona. They finished an impressive 5th, 6th and 7th outright, just behind Porsche, who claimed a dominant first win in the race and finished 1-2-3 with their 907 LH Longtails.

This car, 019, would stay in the States after Daytona and compete in the Watkins Glen Six-Hour in the care of John Martino. From there the car moved between a handful of American racers before Yoshijuki Hayashi purchased it for his collection in Japan.

He kept the car for some years before selling it to Shiro Kosaka who owned Gallery Abarth. Kosaka displayed it proudly in his museum until it was purchased in 2001 by its current owner.

Its current owner returned it to the United Kingdom, giving it a “significant yet sympathetic” restoration and returning it to race condition. Since its completion 019’s been back on the track racing at historic events like the Le Mans Classic.

This beautiful and historics Works Alfa is in race-ready condition and up for sale at Fiskens. Hit this link to their site for more information.
