Footnotes

  • Introduced at the Geneva Salon in 1970, the two-seater Montreal coupé used a 'civilised', 2,593cc version of the T33 sports-racer's four-cam V8. The front-mounted, dry-sump engine produced 200bhp at 6,500rpm courtesy of electronic ignition and Spica mechanical fuel injection, and drove the rear wheels via a five-speed ZF gearbox. Sourced from the contemporary Giulia 1750GTV, the running gear comprised independent front suspension and live rear axle plus disc brakes all round. Aided by its slippery, fastback body styling, the Montreal was good for a top speed of 137mph and in spite of the hefty price tag proved very popular.

    This particular Montreal was exported new to the USA in 1972 (there is a fragment of the US import licence on the car), remaining there until around 1975/76 when, it is believed, it was exported to France. The car was first registered in the UK on 11th July 1989. Photographs taken
    in 1990 show the car with its French registration, '5699 SR 74' and French-specification yellow headlights.

    The current owner purchased the Alfa on 17th May 1990 and spent around £3,000 on various mechanical repairs, a partial re-spray and having the panels wax protected (see bills on file). We are advised that, as a result of the wax treatment, there is no rust on the body or chassis. 'KDX 111K' had covered 99,594 kilometres at the time of its acquisition in 1990 and has now covered circa 110,000 kilometres. Bills for servicing and repairs, and MoTs for most of the period 1989 to 2014 are available, including one of the last service carried out on 8th October 2014.

    Servicing has been carried out fairly regularly, the gaps being when the car was briefly off the road in storage. All serious maintenance has been undertaken by Alfarama in Stanmore, Middlesex, a small specialist garage widely recognised as leading experts in Alfa Romeos and Montreals in particular. The car is said to drive well and is described as in generally good condition, requiring only limited expenditure to bring up to an excellent standard. It is offered with current road fund licence, MoT to August 2015 and a V5 registration document.
