Vendor supplied images

  • Fuel injection system recently overhauled 

The Appeal 

When Alfa Romeo unveiled its Gandini-penned concept car at Expo 67 in Montreal the world got a new sort of Alfa and the car instantly got a name. 
The production Montreal was a little different, but no less appealing. The visual conenctions to Marcelllo’s Miura remained and beneath the bonnet was a 2.6L 200bhp V8 derived, no less, from Alfa Romeo’s Tipo 33 racer. 
3,925 were built and this is car number 313, a very early ‘71 that is, naturally, classically finished in Alfa Rosso Red. It has evidently been restored, the work finished to a high level inside and out. The fuel injection system was overhauled in summer 2023. 
This car recently arrived in Czechia from Switzerland and is reported to be in very good mechanical condition. A very good example of a car whose reverence from enthusiasts grows annually. 

The History and Paperwork

  • Car number 313 of the 674 built in 1971 
  • Chassis number confirmed by www.alfamontreal.info central resource website 
  • Swiss documentation 
  • This car is not currently registered in Czechia
  • Fuel injection overhauled in summer 2023
  • Headlights also replaced at the same time 

The Condition

  • Beautifully finished car in classic Alfa Red with very good paintwork 
  • Exterior finish is to a high standard with very good panel fit and finish 
  • Factory standard car including Campagnolo factory specification alloys 
  • Quality Pirelli tyres fitted all round 
  • Well detailed car with B post decals and NACA bonnet duct 
  • Black leather interior in very good order with few signs of age or use 
  • Unmodified interior with modern face-off stereo fitted
  • Well presented engine bay with clean components 
  • Deep dish Alfa Romeo branded wood-rimmed steering wheel 
If it’s not red is it really an Alfa Romeo? Looking at this beautiful ‘71 Montreal is confirmation of how well the colour suits its Gandini lines. It has clearly been restored to a high standard, the finish gleaming in the photos and carefully replicating the factory details. 
The interior is a similarly story, the smart black leather trim showing few signs of age or use and remaining largely unmodified from factory standard - only a modern stereo appears to vary.

The Mechanics 

  • Alloy 200bhp 90 degree V8 2,593cc engine derived from the Tipo 33 2litre
  • 5spd manual gearbox with dogleg first
  • Fuel injection recently overhauled 
  • Described as fully functioning by the seller
  • Seller advises that the suspension is older and may require work in future 
The Montreal moved from show star to showroom in just three years, in the process switching its original 1.6litre motor for a far more exotic 2.6litre V8 derived from Alfa Romeo’s Tipo 33 race car. Modern fuel injection helped lift power to a potent 200bhp, delivered via a typically slick 5spd manual gearbox. 
This car is reported to run and drive well and to be fully functional. The fuel injection system was overhauled in summer 2023 and the car has covered few miles since. The vendor reports that the suspension is in good order but may benefit from attention in the near future.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
€0 to €9,999 €100.00
€10,000 to €49,999 €250.00
€50,000 to €99,999 €500.00
€100,000 + €1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
