Another week, another low mileage Alfa Romeo 164. But this 164 is unequivocally the lowest mileage example we've featured on CICFS. For sale in Texas, this sunroof delete 164 has under 5,000 miles and was used sparingly by an elderly owner. Now owned by an enthusiast who has a low mileage Series 4 Spider as well, this sharp sedan is certainly going to garner some interest from the Alfa faithful.
Up for sale is my gorgeous 1991 Alfa Romeo 164L in great shape. This is possibly the lowest mileage Alfa 164 in the country and worldwide. While not new, this is the closest to new that one can possibly get. Owned by an elderly gentleman who drove it sparingly and kept in climate controlled storage prior to my acquisition. It shares a garage space with my 10k mile 1993 Alfa Spider Veloce.
MECHANICAL: The 3.0L 6 cylinder engine fires up immediately and idles smoothly. It shifts through the gears effortlessly.
- The fluids have recently been flushed after the car was in climate-controlled storage.
- The brakes were bled.
- New Fuel pump.
- AC service. AC is cold.
- New front Koni struts replaced aging front ones. Got a 4 wheel alignment as well.
Have receipts for all mechanical work.
EXTERIOR: Beautiful Grey exterior is as new, with the factory pinstripes in place. Body panel fit and finish is as it left the factory.
- 100% rust free. The undercarriage still has traces of factory cosmoline.
- Sunroof delete model.
- Alloy wheels and Tires are in great shape.
INTERIOR: The grey leather is as new and is supple. No wear on the seats or bolsters. The headliner is great shape. Dash is perfect.
- All gauges work.
- Factory radio and speakers in great shape. Power antenna works.
- Missing the factory floor mats. Has aftermarket ones.
In summary, this is a very clean piece of Alfa history and a once in a lifetime opportunity. Looking for an Alfisti to add to their collection. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thanks for the interest, bids and questions on my Alfa. I wanted to emphasize that the car is a very well preserved example. I don't see any scratches or dings on the body or bumpers. I have never seen an Alfa in this condition. It would be right at home on the showroom floor. The leather has no wear. The headliner is perfect. Everything is original. Even the factory Good year Tires, without evidence of dry rot.
The car was put in climate controlled hangar from 2007 till this past year. It was driven around the runway every couple of weeks to keep fluids moving. Since the car wasn't registered, there was no record of miles progression. The elderly gentleman I bought it from sold his airplane and was losing his hangar space. He wanted to keep the car preserved and didn't have garage space for it. There are no dings, scratches etc anywhere on the car. The odometer and trip meter both work. I had the car registered and inspected last year.
I am a physician and an automotive enthusiast. I love these young classics. I have a 93 Alfa Spider Veloce as well. I had the car throroughly inspected to verify miles and my mechanic who also works on low mileage air cooled Porsches and Italian marques said he was absolutely certain the miles are original.
This is certainly a unique 164 but what could the value be? For someone who wanted a 164 new and didn't have the chance the first time around, this could be a dream come true. For others, the automatic transmission could hold this car back. The best 164s out there usually trade hands between $8,000 and $10,000, so I'd suspect we are somewhere around that price point. The question is, do you use it as intended or keep preserving it as is? And if you press it into service, will sudden problems arise after years of light use?
