THE ALFA ROMEO MONTREAL

Alfa Romeo contracted Bertone to design an innovative new sports car in 1967 to reveal to the world at the Expo '67 World's Fair in Montreal. The excitement of the time promped Marcello Gandini, who created the iconic Miura just one year before, to a concept featuring innovative side gills and retractable slotted headlight shades on a classic, flowing shape.

Three years later, Alfa debuted the Alfa Romeo Montreal as a production model at the 1970 Geneva Auto Salon. While strikingly similar stylistically to the Expo '67 concept, the production model abandoned the Giulia's four-cylinder for a high-revving quad-cam V8 based on the 2.0 liter Tipo 33 Stradale engine.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Purchased new on February 19, 1972 by Mr. Guy Cudel of Brussels, Belgium, this Montreal was ordered in the attractive Nero over Nero color combination it bares today. It then passed through the ownership of a Mr. A Tondeur, onto a Mr. Filippo Funcine in Italy. At this time the car was purchased by its current owner, a Texas based enthusiast, who had the car imported. Since its import, the consignor has pampered the car, careful to not put any significant mileage on its odometer. Housed in a fully climate controlled garage, it has been studiously maintained.

After 40 years of passionate use and ownership, this Nero survivor appears to be in very good order. The car's odometer shows that it has covered 90,000km, which is believed to be correct. Presented in wonderful condition, with very good paint, a nicely presented interior and good mechanicals, this car is accompanied by a tool kit and all import documents.

With its forward styling and evocative looks that still look groundbreaking today, this well-preserved Alfa Montreal will be sure to bring smiles to onlookers for years to come.
