One of the reasons, the records were not kept particularly well was to avoid paying too much taxes. This car is a prime example as it was sold directly by Autodelta to its first private owner in 1973 with a chassis number that would suggest it is a Giulia. This was done so the carnet of the car's original number could be used for a newer car, preventing the team from the requirement to pay additional customs duties. A highly original survivor, this example authenticity is unquestioned. Its third owner had it carefully returned to full running by Pearson Engineering during the 2000s. In 2012, it was acquired by the current owner at the biennial RM Auctions Monaco sale.

Since winning the auction, the current owner has tried to further piece together the history of this chassis. At the time of the sale, it was believed that this was the car used by De Ademich during the 1970 season as his name was found on the back of the seat and the unique location of the electrical cut-out switch. Further research has revealed that it most likely was one of the cars built in 1970 and used throughout the 1970 season. Picture evidence suggests that it was driven by Masten Gregory and Nanni Galli in the 1970 Targa Florio. Galli is adamant that he drove the exact same car at Le Mans, which has prompted the owner to re-finish the car in its Le Mans livery with a yellow nose, while preserving the original red paint. At Le Mans, Galli had moved all the way up to 2nd in torrential conditions until his alternator failed in the 18th hour. This very rare T33/3 was finally raced again for the first time at the 2014 Mugello Classic where the owner shared the driving duties with Nanni Galli himself. Since then it has been regularly raced in Europe by the owner, Galli and also Emmanuele Pirro, who briefly led the CER1 race at Spa in 2015. This was also the first race the car finished since it was retired from contemporary racing.
