Hans2 sent me a link to Enrico's blue Montreal and I noticed this Montreal race car in France. Interesting but I doubt it was an Alfa Romeo 'Team Car' with factory sponsorship. Phil you might not be quite as upside down as you thought if this one sells for near the asking price. A translated version of the ad is shown below the link, I hope: ALFA ROMEO MONTREAL Groupe IV - 1971 For Sale on Car And Classic UK [C347528]

What!! $120k for a standard stripped out Montreal with a bolt in roll cage? I could understand a high price for a car with factory or period race history and factory period modifications. I could be mistaken but I can't see where the race modifications warrant the high price over and above a well presented road going car.

Oh well as the saying goes "if you can't beat them join them". So my race Montreal is now officially FOR SALE.... Full support and spares package available. All offers considered.

I'll then finish my other Alfa projects and have a few holidays in the south of France with the girls.
