While at the outset it was derided by Alfa Romeo purists for it’s front-wheel drive setup, the 164 has become quite the practical, desirable modern Italian classic. This 164L for sale in Maryland has been owned by one family and is rather attractive in that it has the five speed gearbox with the red and tan leather color combination.

A unique opportunity to purchase a one-family owned Alfa. My father bought this car new and when he passed, I became the next driver. We have owned many Alfas (Spyders, GTVs, 164s, Berlinas) and this is one of the finest. Always garaged and always maintained. She runs very strong. The clutch (19K on new clutch), brakes (new pads), cooling system (steppers work perfectly), tires (almost new), suspension (new control arms & trailing arms), and AC are all in great condition. Oil change just performed. Paint is in good shape as is the interior. Original tool kit included and complete. All original manuals too. I would drive this car anywhere without hesitation. I have mixed feelings about parting with Dad's Alfa but I just don't have the time to drive it and I can't stand the thought of it just sitting in the garage. The only thing worse than too many miles is not enough! I have many maintanance records. The Alfa is being sold "as is".
At almost 120,000 miles, this isn’t a lot considering the car’s age. One important point not discussed in the seller’s ad is whether the timing belt has been replaced, and if so, at what interval. For a car in this kind of condition and benefitting from the fact that you know going in where it has been, I’d say it could pull around $4,500 to $6,000. For the enthusiast on a budget who needs a bit more space but wants a bit of a sharp edge to the four-door formula, this is your ride.
