Chassis: 75033.029
One of the Autodelta works cars, this 33/2 Daytona was driven to victory in the 1968 Imola 500 km by Teodoro Zeccoli and Nino Vaccarella. For the 1969 season, it was sold to Antonio Zadra, who raced the V8-engined Alfa Romeo extensively but with little success. In 1970 Hubert Ascher acquired the car and he entered it for Austrian Klaus Reisch in several more events until it was retired from contemporary racing halfway through 1971.

Boasting a remarkably well documented history for an Alfa Romeo 33, chassis '029' was owned for many years by prominent American collector Sid Herman. He had the car looked after by British Alfa Romeo expert Paul Grist, who eventually buy the Imola winning machine from Herman in 1999. The current owner acquired the 33/2 in 2006 and has since brought it to many prominent events like the 2009 and 2010 editions of the Goodwood Festival of Speed where it is pictured above. He has now decided to part with the car and it will be offered at RM Auctions' 2012 Monaco sale in May of 2012.
