Introduced at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show, the Alfa Romeo Montreal was a sleek 2+2 front-engine, rear-wheel drive coupe designed by Marcello Gandini of Bertone. Derived from the exotic Tipo 33 Stradale, the Montreal’s 2.6-liter, quad-cam V-8 with Spica mechanical fuel injection and dry-sump lubrication was mated to a five-speed ZF manual gearbox. Underpinnings were based on the contemporary Tipo 105 GTV and included an independent front suspension, live rear axle, and four-wheel disc brakes.
Never officially sold in North America when new, this 1973 Montreal is one of 3,925 units built by Alfa Romeo from 1970–1977. Finished in Rosso (Red) over a Nero (Black) vinyl and cloth interior and fitted with desirable factory air-conditioning, it was sold new in Palermo, Italy on September 19, 1973, according to its Alfa Romeo Certificato di Origine and copies of ACI documents on file. After a succession of Italian owners, this Alfa Romeo was sold by Aquarama Cars & Boats of Perugia, Italy to Florida-based collector Leo Schigiel in December of 2016. An invoice on file dated February 2017 details mechanical and cosmetic attention the Montreal received from specialist Carrozzeria Rizza in Rome.
Presenting beautifully today, with a hint of gentle patina, this Montreal clearly benefits from careful use and maintenance. Accompanied by documentation including historical registration and importation paperwork, this attractive Alfa Romeo Montreal is now ready for its next adventure.
