This 1974 Alfa Romeo Montreal is an Italian-market example that was acquired by the current owner before being imported to the US in 2018. The car is finished in red over black cloth upholstery and is powered by a 2.6-liter V8 mated to a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Additional equipment includes 14″ Campagnolo wheels, power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes, SPICA mechanical fuel injection, retractable headlight louvers, and a wood-rimmed steering wheel. Service performed in 2022 involved replacing a head gasket. This Montreal is offered by the seller on behalf of the current owner with a tool kit, a certificate of origin, a RIAR Homologation Certificate, an AROC concours award, previous registration paperwork, manufacturer’s literature, and a clean North Carolina title.
The Montreal was designed by Marcello Gandini at Bertone and debuted at the Expo ’67 in Montreal, Canada. This example was finished from the factory in Rosso (521) and is said to have been repainted during prior ownership. Exterior details include retractable headlight louvers, a NACA duct on the hood, dual side mirrors, six slats stacked vertically behind each side window, and dual polished exhaust outlets.
Silver 14″ Campagnolo magnesium wheels are mounted with 195/70 Fulda Carat Assuro tires, and a matching spare is located beneath the rear storage compartment. The Montreal’s suspension was based on that of the contemporary GTV and featured a double-wishbone setup with coil springs up front as well as a live axle at the rear. Braking is handled by power-assisted discs at all four corners.
The interior features bolstered bucket seats with adjustable headrests that are trimmed in black cloth upholstery. Additional appointments include red carpets, electric windows, three-point seat belts, a radio delete plate, and rear luggage straps. Cracking is noted on the rear shelf.
A wood-rimmed steering wheel frames Jaeger instrumentation that includes a 260-km/h speedometer, a 9k-rpm tachometer, an analog clock, and auxiliary gauges. The five-digit odometer indicates 72k kilometers (~45k miles), less than 500 of which have been added by the current owner. True mileage is unknown.
The 2.6-liter V8 features dry-sump lubrication and SPICA mechanical fuel injection. A head gasket was replaced in February 2022 by Fiat Alfa Romeo Specialty of Matthews, North Carolina.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed ZF manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Additional underside images are included in the gallery below.
Documentation accompanying the car includes a certificate of origin from Alfa Romeo Classiche, previous registration paperwork, manufacturer’s literature, and a Registro Italiani Alfa Romeo plaque and Homologation Certificate. An award from a 2019 Alfa Romeo Owner’s Club concours event is shown in the gallery and incorrectly depicts the serial number.
