Designed by Orazio Satta Puliga and Giuseppe Busso to represent “the maximum expression achievable by man in the field of cars” and drawn by Marcello Gandini for Bertone, the Alfa Romeo Montreal was presented at the homologous 1967 Universal Exposition. Genius and beauty in DNA, therefore undoubtedly one of the most fascinating cars ever.
Admired today as then, the Montreal remains one of the most sought after models by collectors all over the world, perhaps the one that best expresses the soul of the brand from Arese. And, thanks to the fiftieth anniversary from its production, it can boast constantly rising quotations.
The model proposed at auction, in the rare original ‘Escoli Grey’ colour, belongs to the collection of a Perugian entrepreneur. Purchased by a well-known jeweller from Rimini, in turn a great collector of vintage cars, it boasts excellent conditions and various options, including air conditioning and electric windows.
The car looks very good: recently repainted, it is healthy and with solid bottom, precise alignments, intact underbody and neat engine compartment.
The interior is equally beautiful: panels, rear bench, tunnel and dashboard are original, while the seats and the headlining have been restored.
The only downside, as evidenced by the photos, is a crack that marks the dashboard - a typical flaw in 1970s Alfas. The luggage compartment, which also houses the spare wheel from the first equipment, has been cleaned.
The car is in working order and mechanically efficient, with regular compression values and a good chassis. The car was serviced in 2018 and inspected in October 2020, but it is advisable to do a general check-up and an inspection of the Spica system for optimal use.
The eight-cylinder engine type 00564, directly derived from the extraordinary 33 Stradale, is rotating, probably replaced in the first years of the car's life, and without punching.
Number plates from Forlì were applied in 1990 after being registered in San Marino in 1982; documents for change of ownership are present.
A video of the car is available upon request.
