Ira Russell Anderson

San Francisco, CA, USA

First owner

 

Eugene Smith

Fremont, CA, USA

Narcotics officer from the City of Fremont, California.

Was replacing his other now-wrecked Auto Delta TZ-1 that he had crashed at Candlestick Park raceway a year earlier. (?)

Smith campaigned the TZ, with Alfa factory support, in SCCA C production for the 1965 season.
He won at Stockton, Cotati Raceway (another northern California airfield course) and finally at Laguna Seca to capture the C Production Pacific Coast SCCA regional championship in 1965.
During this final race at Laguna he tangled with two Corvettes eventually being declared the winner after the race was red flagged.
He subsequently retired from racing and used the TZ sparingly as a street car.

History & present whereabouts unknown.

Offered for sale by Morris & Welford with the above history (marked in blue) but unfortunately presented without any proof (which doesn't mean it isn't true!).

M&W list the car as follows:

>>>
This TZ is certainly unusual for all the right reasons since it still retains 95% of its original alloy bodywork, original interior pieces and its original Zagato seats. The engine that comes in the car is # *00055* which is a correct and numbered TZ unit fitted with an original TZ head and correct Weber 45mm carburetors, cold air box, magnesium oil pan and magnesium bell housing and all as fitted when purchased from the Murphy Estate. The gearbox is a correct close-ratio 5-speed GTA and it has a 5.12 rear end, also as when purchased from the Estate.
This is, in our professional opinion, one of the few TZ’s with a known traceable ownership history and one that has never been out of the USA since new, and is in remarkably sound and original condition.
