Here's a rare Italian classic car! Following their successful Tipo
33 Sports Prototype racers from the late '60s, Alfa used the lovely
alloy 4-cam V8 engine developed for the 33 Stradale in these
Bertone-designed coupes during the early-mid 1970s as their
flagship car. The Montreal was designed by Marcello Gandini and
shares an almost-exact side profile with his seminal Lamborghini
Miura! (Note the window curve, rear quarter and back glass shapes).
The hood is low and flat like the Miura, too, made possible by the
V8's race-derived dry sump design that allowed low placement in the
A surprising number of Montreals were built-about 3900-but they are
very seldom seen today. And most that are around, have led abusive
lives with poor maintenance, amateur 'restorations' and
deterioration. As with any rare car-you don't want a rough one!This
example has only 59,400 kilometers which is only about 37K miles.
Looking it over, that's not hard to believe, as it is completely
original and amazingly nice with excellent chrome and 90% original
paint. It has its original keys, Italian owner's book (plus an
English copy) and a factory brochure (the car illustrated is in the
same signature orange color). Undercarriage is very clean and we
have found no signs of past accident damage or rust. The black
fabric upholstery is a duplicate of the factory material and was
replaced not long ago. Among the documentation is a file of past
service records and a letter of authentication from Alfa Storico
confirming the original colors and build date of April 14th
We also have the DOT import papers from when the car arrived in the
US in 1985, plus a cache of unobtanium spare parts! These cars have
great performance, with their fuel injection, limited-slip diff,
4-wheel discs and ZF 5-speed transmission-plus that signature
Gandini styling. It has just had a professional servicing will all
fluids, suspension work and tuneup by a Montreal specialist and
runs absolutely perfectly.
