Date Owner Location Remarks

Early history unknown but presumed to be a normal road car
Pre-1978 Bernardo Sa Nogueira Portugal Heavily modified for racing, including a 2 liter Nord engine with mechanical fuel injection, prepared by Jose Xavier Moreira.
Black with red stripes and round wheel arch extensions.
1978 Bernardo Sa Nogueira Portugal Raced at the Rampa de Pena event, 1978.
After having qualified first in class, Bernardo only managed a 3rd in class, 9th in Group B and 16th overall due to the engine running on 3 cylinders.
(See photos)
Post-1978   Portugal Possibly still owned by Bernardo Sa Nogueira (but unconfirmed).
Car was painted yellow.
Was raced at least once in this shape by Jose Eduardo Oliveira.

Post-1978
(Presumably 1984 ?)
Peter Crutch UK

Roberto Giordanelli recalls:

Peter Crutch purchased the car from (ed: or through) Jose Xavier Moreira.

Piero (ed: Pesaro) and I went to Calais with a trailer to collect the Zagato from Moreira.

The Zagato went straight to my workshop in Sunbury on Thames.

Peter Crutch gave me carte blanche to prepare the Zagato how I wished.

I drove it briefly on the road to get a feel for it.

I decided that the GTAm power unit was too peaky and would be unreliable for long-term use.

I delivered the GTAm engine to Piero’s workshop in Brentford, and together we built a conventional full race 2 litre twin cam engine.

Meanwhile in Sunbury on Thames, I totally stripped the Zagato and rebuilt it with different style body from that raced in Portugal.

Square wings arches (Porsche 944 style) instead of round arches, deep front spoiler and raised rear spoiler.

Car painted red with Italian tricolore on the roof.

I converted it from LHD to RHD for better weight distribution on UK’s right-hand turning circuits.

I also lightened the car considerably and fitted the new engine.

I alone raced it through 1985 and 1986, winning the Class A in the Alfa Romeo Championship and setting many lap records.

I also raced it in the Italian Intermarque series, winning many races.

1985 photos show some body roll, so for 1986 I fitted a stiffer front antiroll.

(see photo of Roberto posing on the car while on a trailer)

1987

Piero Pesaro

UK

Ownership was somehow transferred to Piero Pesaro who started racing the car.
The exact terms and conditions of this transfer of ownership have given rise to heated debates which are beyond the scope of this register and its website.
We will therefore refrain from comments on that transaction as it is not relevant to the history of the car.

1990

Piero Pesaro

UK

Raced the car at least once at Mallory Park 1990.
(See photo)

Post-1990

Piero Pesaro

UK Raced the car at various other occasions

The car was dismantled, the GTAm parts were sold and the carcass was transferred to Italy.

1971 Alfa Romeo Junior Z 1300 Zagato Owners Manual in GERMAN

1971 Alfa Romeo Junior Z 1300 Zagato Owner's Manual in German language (Deutsch).

Vintage April 1971 owners manual for the Alfa Romeo 1300 Junior Zagato.

The official title in German: Alfa Romeo Junior Z Betriebsanleitung und Wartung

It measures some 6 x 8 inches or 15 x 20 cm and counts 44 pages.

Language: German / Deutsch

Print reference: N. 1714 4/71 - 2000, printed by Arti Grafiche F.lli Brugora, Segrate Italy.

Alfa Romeo were pretty late with producing a proper owners manual for the important German export-market.

Finally in April 1971 they issued this version, which appears to be the one and only version in German.

If my information is correct, the manuals were printed in one batch only and the bulk was sent to Alfa Romeo Germany to be distributed amongst the owners of cars that were already in circulation.

More than excellent condition for a paper document of its age.

A MUST-HAVE for owners of cars that were originally delivered in Germany!
