The car is described as follows:
TZ-1 chassis 105 was built in July 1965 as a stradale or “street” model.
This meant it was equipped with roll-down windows, leather interior, rear bumpers and a touch more sound-deadening materials than the corsa or “race” version.
Nevertheless, it was delivered with the higher-tuned twin-plug engine and is believed to have been competitively run by its first owner, Luigi Palmieri of Milan.
Mr. Palmieri sold the TZ in 1984 to a Sig. Monzeglio of Turin, Italy, from whom US citizen Fritz Durnberger, purchased the car in 1997.
During his ownership, the Alfa was comprehensively restored to a high level. Mr. Durnberger raced the car extensively in vintage events in the US, including numerous appearances in the Monterey Historics at Laguna Seca. It was bought by the vendor in 2001.
The freshly rebuilt twin-plug DOHC 1,600 cc engine performs wonderfully, delivering power through the full rev. range.
All mechanical components have been inspected and serviced, including the close-ratio 5-speed gearbox.
The TZ-1 is remarkably complete and even includes the original lightweight magnesium bell housing, optional 6" x 15" Campagnola magnesium wheels and the alloy twin plug head.
This TZ-1 is offered with the original owner’s manual in its pouch, Italian registration documents and a West Coast vintage-racing logbook.
With its well-balanced weight distribution, the TZ-1 is one of the most usable sports racing cars ever built, easy to drive with superb handling – flattering to drivers of average skill and rewarding to an expert.
A TZ-1 will enable its new owner to gain admission to practically any vintage circuit race, hill climb or rally in the world, and this example could, with little effort, be equally welcome at all of the leading concours events.
The TZ-1 is certainly one of the most desirable postwar Alfa Romeos and arguably one of the most coveted sports racing cars of the second half of the 20th century.
The opportunity to purchase one of these very special cars with a known history is a rare one indeed and should be carefully considered by discerning enthusiast collectors.

Here we have a genuine and vintage 1950's / 1960's Zagato logo lapel pin made by OMEA.

As visible in the photos, it does have some loss to the white cloisonné.

The rear of the tab has been marked by the manufacturer, OMEA of Milano Italy, including their logo and even their address: V. Albani 20.

A rare find that simply oozes patina and character!
