Description

**REMAINS AVAILABLE FROM OUR SEPTEMBER AUCTION - LOT 203**

1972 Alfa Romeo Montreal

The vendor has supplied the following information.

Built on the 31/12/72 and registered on the 05/04/74, this Montreal has been owned by the current owner since 2007. The odometer currently displays 100,465 kms (62,430 miles) and the MOT is valid until 20/08/20 (no advisories). The car is tax exempt.

The Montreal features a quad cam 2.6L dry sump V8 derived from the Alfa Tipo 33 racing cars, which produces a wonderful soundtrack. The unique styling is by Marcello Gandini of Lamborghini Miura fame. Driving this car is quite an experience and it draws attention wherever it goes. The only modification is a stainless full exhaust system, which emphasises the sound without being obtrusive.

The car is red with a black leather interior (with red piping) which is the perfect combination. The car has had recent bodywork attention to the lower sections of both doors and one or two other areas, followed by fresh paint, so it’s now looking better than ever. Recent new battery.

The car comes with lots of paperwork/history, previous MOTs, etc but does not have full history, as some of it was misplaced by a previous owner. The car also comes with binders full of factory technical information including schematics and parts diagrams with very useful part numbers. A set of very rare SPICA fuel injection system adjustment tools are also included, as is a SPICA instruction manual.

This car has been an absolute pleasure to own and drive, but now doesn’t get used anywhere near enough as it deserves, so it’s time for somebody else to enjoy owning one of these rare and rapidly-appreciating Classic Alfas. The Montreal is in good order cosmetically and mechanically, but would benefit from an adjustment on the clutch rod as the clutch pedal can be slow to return. Sometimes the ignition switch sticks a little too, but an override has been fitted inside the cubby hole by the driver’s left knee, so this is never an issue. 

On site now for viewing.
