THE ALFA ROMEO MONTREAL

Penned by Marcello Gandini who created the iconic Miura just one year before, the Montreal concept featured innovative side gills and retractable slotted headlight shades on a classic, flowing shape. This sleek, unnamed coupe was met with much acclaim and began to be colloquially referred to as the Alfa Romeo Montreal. Three years later, Alfa debuted the Alfa Romeo Montreal as a production model at the 1970 Geneva Auto Salon. 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. This 90° dry-sump V8 redlined at 7,000rpm and brought this stylish coupe to 60 from a standstill in 7.1 seconds, and on to a top speed of nearly 140mph.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This beautifully presented Montreal is believed to have been delivered new to the home market in 1974, remaining with the first owner until 1985, when a Mr. Zeta of Cottage Grove in Oregon bought the car and shipped it stateside. Mr. Zeta would be the caretaker of this iconic Bertone-designed V8 for the next two decades. Later the car passed on to a Mr. Govansmith of San Francisco, California before it went to what is believed to be the third American owner, another Bay Area sports car aficionado.

As a dedicated Alfa enthusiast, he treated the Montreal to a full mechanical refurbishment of engine, transmission, brakes and suspension. The bright work has been kept original, but has been polished and presents beautifully as well as the rubber and gaskets on the car. The black interior was refurbished to a very high standard, and the car comes with five original-type Turbine wheels. With one exterior re-paint in the original orange color, this striking Montreal is a stylish and powerful sports Coupe, ready for spirited touring or for concours showings.
