Description:

1972 Alfa Romeo Other

The Alfa Romeo Montreal is often referred to as the concept car that became reality. Alfa Romeo displayed a prototype of a beautiful Gandini designed model during the 1967 World Expo in ... you guessed it ... Montreal Canada. The design was an instant hit and Alfa decided to put it into production. Of course they were years away from having a real car as they didn't even have an engine for it. The engine was as much as a departure for Alfa as was the rest of the car. A V8 engine was chosen using a Spica fuel injection. Somehow they were able to stuff it in the engine compartment! It took Alfa four years to get the car into the market but they did. Interesting that the car was never sold in the USA or Canada. I love driving this Montreal ! The V8 engine is very smooth and the 5-speed ZF gearbox is super light. My particular Montreal came from a Florida Alfa aficionado that babied the car. Stay away from ratty Montreals as these cars are not easy to work on! A well sorted Montreal is reliable and trouble free. My car has the optional AC but I never got around to install the belts after the previous owner had to cut them in order to replace the alternator belt. New belts come with the car.Seats are very comfortable and the instrument gauges are cool and quite interesting. Body construction was very good and they tend to rust a lot less than similar Italian cars of the era. This particular Montreal is rust free and straight. The engine compartment is very clean and original as so many cars have modifications to the injection and ignition systems. The interior is original and the cloth seat covers were redone as per original. Comes with original owner's manual jack maintenance/repair book. Car is just north of Atlanta Georgia and can be viewed by appointment.
