Alfa Romeo contracted Bertone to design an innovative new sports car in 1967 to reveal to the world at the Expo 67 World's Fair in Montreal. Penned by Marcello Gandini, who created the iconic Miura just one year before, the 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. While strikingly similar stylistically to the Expo 67 concept, 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 7,000 rpm and brought this stylish coupe to 60 mph from a standstill in 7.1 seconds, and on to a top speed of nearly 140 mph. While the Montreal offers blistering performance and stunning Marcello Gandini good looks, it also features four seats and a trunk, making it quite a practical and usable sports car.

This Montreal was purchased new on February 19, 1972 by Mr. Guy Cudel of Brussels, Belgium. It then passed through the ownership of a Mr. A Tondeur and yet again to a Mr. Filippo Funcine in Italy. It was later imported to the USA by a Texas collector where it has since been housed in a climate controlled environment and used sparingly. It has always been kept in proper cosmetic mechanical condition and serviced properly. This Montreal is best described as being in survivor and preserved condition wherever possible. It is excellent in every way, the engine compartment completely original, yet maintained whenever necessary.

On a recent road test, this Montreal performed properly and as one would expect from a well cared for survivor. A lovely and powerful Alfa Montreal, it is welcomed many vintage rallies such as the Copperstate 1000. The Alfa Montreals have yet to gain the notoriety they deserve and thus offer and excellent investment potential as well.
