1967 Alfa Romeo tipo 33/2 Fleron Replica

Racing Past Presented by Shannons Insurance.

Alfa Romeo started development of the Tipo 33 in the early 1960s, with the first car being built in 1965.

It was sent to Autodelta to be completed and for additional changes to be made. It used a straight-4 engine from the Alfa Romeo TZ2, but Autodelta produced its 2.0 litre V8 soon after.

Car # 33
Engine: 1600cc Alfa
Driver: Tony Stubbs

The 2000 cc (122ci) Tipo 33 mid-engined prototype debuted on 12 March 1967 at the Belgian hillclimbing event at Fléron, with Teodoro Zeccoli winning.

The first version was nicknamed the “periscope” type because it had very characteristic air inlet on the roof resembling a periscope objective.

It was powered by a 1995 cc (122ci) 90° V8 of 230 hp (201 kW), with a large-diameter tube frame.

This faithful replica was commissioned by owner/driver Tony Stubbs and was built in Italy.

The body is an original Autodelta fibreglass construction, and the engine was sourced from a Montreal.
