Nice looking car. I think the first thing is find the local Alfa club or find out if there is an Alfa forum somewhere? Probably get a PPI by someone that knows Alfa's really well.

Where to start? This is a 1970's (early) Italian sportscar. 17.5k euro can either be an absolute bargain or 17.5k too much. I think you need a decent exposure to classic Italian cars to make a decent assessment on the quality of the car in general. You will need an Alfa expert to assess the originality aspect. What I know of Montreals is from magazine articles and the generic story is that they are difficult to get reliable.

I think the primary thing to remember with this kind of car is that restoring a bad example properly could cost well over €50k (€100k would not surprise me), if I look at my experiences with restoration so far. Restoring a decent one could easily be half that. So tread carefully. Personally, I like the Montreal and if I had a perfect one I would never let it go for the kind of money you're talking about. So I do not agree with Granucci (in the other thread) - if this is a good car, then 17.5k is not a lot of money. But it sounds to me like you need help from someone in the know.

As for maintenance - if the car is perfect then it will be cheaper to run than an F355. But frankly, if you're worried about that sort of thing then you should not even get close to this kind of car. They need an owner who doesn't count the pennies to give a true reward - I sense that you're not ready for that kind of commitment.

It's just my opinion of course - I'm not the kind of guy to lie underneath my classic to fix it every weekend, if you're that sort of bloke (with the right knowledge) then the money equation becomes very different.

Well, onno, you know better than I on this one: I had no idea the restoration would surpass a 355, and THAT is enough to make me buy something else

montreal

Onno,

thanks for your message,

the only things i know about a montreal is from magazines.
some owners said, in those ariticals a good car wont give you
so much trubble, but the the garage i visit once in a while,
and he only does Alfas and ferrari , says it is a nightmare.
the main problem is the spica injection, and al other spare parts
for the interior because ther is almost nothing to find.

so what is true. i fall in love whith this car sinds 1970 when my
dad bought his first alfa and i saw it in the showroom i
never bought one because of its bad reputation. and
now i ll find one for this fair amount if you think thata verygood one can
do 30.000 euro max , according to int. auction lists.

ill have to do a lot of home work i think. we wil see.

KKrace

i like the bertone also a lot.

for you another picture
