The images you are about to see were taken by me personally of photographs located in Ing. Carlo Chiti's office on his office walls...so they are not obviously of archival quality....
All of the handwriting writing found on the bottom of each photograph is that applied by Ing. Chiti in what might be considered to be one of his singular efforts to preserve the history of his magnificent cars.
Again, please excuse the resolution of these black and white images originally captured on Kodak color film in the Summer of 1972....from his actual office walls....and a few post-1973 images were added from the Alfa Romeo S.p.A. archives where he naturally would have obtained these later images...
This 2 liter "Periscopia" 1969 prototype ....inscribed in Ing. Chiti's own handwriting.... was the winner of the Fleron hill climb in Belgium as driven in it's inaugural outing by Teodoro Zeccoli. The car has been meticulously restored and is featured on our section "New Lives T-33 English".
Once again, dear readers, these photos were taken of photgraphs located in Chiti's office...so they are not of archival quality....
Again, all of the writing found on the bottom of each photograph is that applied by Carlo Chiti himself in what might be considered to be one of his singular efforts to preserve the history of his magnificent cars.
I have not uncovered proof that Ing. Chiti was particularly concerned about his personal accomplishments or the cars that brought him a large measure of prestige or success. He was not fastidious in the maintenance of his archives or that of the tens of thousands of Autodelta blueprints..in the day when "blueprints" were really blue-line colored prints!
To him, the accomplishents of 'yesterday' were largely irrelevant.
The "Stradale" road version. Spica injected. Body design by Franco Scaglione. Eighteen such examples were constructed in all...amounting to 13 completed vehicles and five chassis that were provided to Italian design houses for creation of advanced 'dream cars'.
Type 105.33 2 liter V-8 "Type Daytona" 1968
Rear view of the V-8 "Typo Daytona" 1968
The above picture of this T-33 2 liter was taken at the Norisring...driven by Ignazio Giunti.
This is actually a very unique 1969 3 liter coupe, which was only ever seen in two events...Enna and Hockingheim in the summer of 1969.
As you read in Ing. Chiti's own handwriting this is one of at least four T-33/3 Le Mans 'long tail' versions, as photographed at Balocco, six months prior to Le Mans. This image was one of a number I photographed directly from the walls in his personal office. More of Chiti's office photos to be seen below.
Tipo 105.33 - 2 liter V-8. Coda lunga (long tail) "Tipo Le Mans". June 1968.
The T-33 3 liter at Zeitweg 1000 Kilometers of Ostereichring in August of 1`970. Observe the elimination of the headlights.
This is the 3 liter version of the V-8 prepared for Imola. Final chassis done in "monocoque" before the era of the "titanium tubulare" or "TT" chassis began to appear in the 1972 season. This was a 1970-1971 version.
33TT3 V-8 seen at Vallelunga with the 1971 design used the entire season.
Photographed during testing with our friend Gian Luigi Picchi...one of the greatest champions in the history of Alfa Romeo racing and a true favorite of Ing. Chiti for his invincible winning style.
He writes a narative for this website located on our page "Autodelta Drivers Speak".
33TT12 12 cylinder 3 liter car in its first officially-released photo at Balocco of this new experimental racing car.
Debut March 1973.
Starting in this 33TT12...at Zeltweg in 1975 is the team of Derek Bell / Henri Pescarolo won this event.
Not a part of the Ing. Chiti wall photograph collection but rather a personally signed memento by the Ingeniere to the author.
This John Barnes lithograph was commissioned by Alfa Romeo, Inc. (USA) upon the occasion of the 33TT12 capturing the 1975 World Championship for Makes. I have several more of these signed lithographs by the team, drivers and Ing. Chiti for sale to a serious collector. This work is perhaps noteworthy also in that Mr. Barnes mis-spelled the name of the German sausage maker and team co-sponsor "Redlefsen" on the panel ahead of the driver.!
