Features

1972 Alfa Romeo Montreal s/n AR*1426338. This Montreal was specified with factory air-conditioning in green metallic “Verde Mettallizzatto” AR-224, as the original paint sticker in the luggage compartment confirms, over a tan interior in “Havana” color scheme. Sometime in the mid 1980s the car was brought to Vernon BC Canada, known for its dry climate. The car was repainted in 1989 in a Champagne Metallic color. It is unclear when the A/C compressor and evaporator were removed, although an original A/C setup was located in the UK (not included), and all necessary hoses from the engine compartment to the car’s interior and the A/C controls in the center console are still present. The car is ready to drive and the engine pulls solidly with plenty of torque and power. The fuel injection runs well and was overhauled about 3 years ago. The gearbox is tight and the clutch was replaced in the last 2 years. The suspension is solid and the brakes are strong. The car has an original Alfa Romeo exhaust system and the original labels on the spark plug wires are still present. With the exception of the clock, all gauges and switches are fully operational. Cosmetically the car stresses originality and is in very good condition for its age and mileage. The paintwork has some minor scratches, a couple of small dents on the hood and a spot with some discoloration below the rear windshield. There are some minor stress cracks in the paint in areas where the body flexes and some very minor wear marks on the doors and around the trunk opening. All the stainless bumpers and trim pieces; window frames, door strips and grille are in good unrestored condition. Aside from a dent in the front right bumper, there is no evidence on the body or underside that the car has ever been in an accident. Aside from some additional buttons on the console, the period radio, the speaker upgrade and front seat covers, the interior is basically untouched and is in good condition. The headliner, rear seat area, and cloth seat upholstery are all good shape except for some wear on the driver’s seat. The seat fabric is not original. All the gauges are in excellent condition, as is most of the dash, although there is a small crack in the top of the dash. The driver’s floor carpet shows minimal wear, and the factory wood steering wheel is glossy but shows nicks and scratches. The trunk is still fitted with the original felted wool fabric, and is in good condition. The engine bay is original, unrestored, clean, and complete. The underside is straight and solid although there is some rust present at the bottom of the rocker panels and the jack points. The speedo/odo shows 9,735 kms but is likely that the actual mileage is 109,735 kms. Comes with all the original books and manuals and a variety of service records on the car.
