Many years ago (late 70’s) I came into possession of a “coffee table” book with photos and illustrations from all the great Marques. The one that immediately took my fancy was tHe Alfa Romeo Montreal
At the time I think I was driving a scrap mark 1 Ford Escort, something as exotic as the Montreal was totally out of my league. The interest remained and life went on and then earlier this year (2018) I was joking with friends about cars and the topic of the Montreal came up again, then someone said “why haven’t you done it?”
Life has been kind and I have been remarkably lucky, so I asked a contact to help me source a good quality Montreal “not concours, but definitely not a project” was the brief. Within weeks 60 DGJ had been found, the fact that it is the right-handed sister to the one in the book made it feel like fate. The car was checked, “highly original, 23k miles, excellent throughout”, price agreed and now it’s in my garage, it’s unlikely to be back on the market in my lifetime.
