O.S.C.A. 1600 GT Zagato Competition (chassis 078)

Thanks to a posting I had made on the Alfa Bulletin Board regarding OSCA spare parts, I was contacted by the owner of chassis 078 which is undergoing a restoration in Italy.  This competition version car has the recessed front headlights (similar to the Ferrari 275GTB) and twin-plug head and ignition.  The car is also equipped with Borrani wheels which could have been added later.

Mario’s car (like many others) is missing a few decorative items (Zagato jack hole covers, interior rear view mirror, etc.) that were often discarded or lost when preparing these 1600GT’s for racing or spirited track driving.   Thanks to Mario for sending some nice pictures of the car and we look forward to helping him source the parts he needs to complete 078.
