FRESHLY DETAILED & READY TO EXPERIENCE
Based on a pair of stunning prototypes designed by Marcello Gandini for Bertone and built expressly for display at the Expo 67 World's Fair held in Montreal, Quebec, the production-ready Alfa Romeo Montreal was rightly announced as "a dream car come true" on its March 1970 Geneva debut. A stylistic tour de force, consistently ranked among the world's most beautiful postwar sports cars ever produced, the Montreal was powered to match with high-revving, 2.6-liter fuel-injected DOHC V-8 with competition-style dry sump lubrication, derived from Alfa Romeo's Tipo 33 front-line sports racers.
Other highly advanced features of the Montreal included a ZF-sourced 5-speed manual gearbox, four-wheel independent suspension, and disc brakes all around. Today, Montreal remains coveted for its great looks and renowned driving experience that must be experienced first-hand, even by today's demanding standards. Only as many as 3,925 examples of the Montreal were constructed in all, with the majority of production through 1977 sold new in Europe and far fewer imported to North America.
Accompanied by the Alfa Romeo Certifcato di Origine (Certificate of Origin) and copies of its original ACI (Automobile Club of Italy) documents confirming provenance, this outstanding 1973 Alfa Romeo Montreal was sold new in Palermo, Italy on September 9, 1973, remaining there for the next 40-plus years. In December 2016, it was purchased by Florida-based collector Leo Schigiel, who commissioned a cosmetic and mechanical restoration, performed by Carrozzeria Rizza in Rome. A February 2017-dated invoice on file with the Montreal documents the work performed there.
Appropriately finished in Red over Black vinyl and cloth upholstery, the Montreal is very well presented and displays a gentle patina consistent with proper post-restoration care and limited, adult enjoyment. Along with the Alfa Romeo Classiche documents and ACI paperwork, this collector-grade 1973 Alfa Romeo Montreal also includes importation paperwork. As offered, it stands ready for a new collector/enthusiast to appreciate its sublime driving experience and masterful styling.
