1991 Alfa Romeo 164S – REVISIT

The 1991 Alfa Romeo 164S we featured last May is still for sale. With a little over 52,000 miles and considering the length of time it has been for sale, it seems like a great time to pick up a tidy, sharp edged Italian sports saloon like this one.

We've featured a few Alfa Romeo sedans this week, and here is one more to round out the week: an impossibly mint 1991 164S. The S is my favorite of all the 164 sedans, as it is the more sporting of the trim levels. A bit more horsepower was squeezed out of the 12 valve single cam V6 via modified camshafts and intake system. On the outside was modified lower body cladding and 15" alloy wheels. The interior was treated to more aggressively bolstered seats, with Recaro seating as an option. This 164S is for sale in Philadelphia at an attractive price.

The top-line engine 3.0 L "Arese" V6. Leather Interior! LOW MILEAGE Vehicle! Power Windows! Moonroof! Manual Transmission! Original Radio!

You are looking at a very rare super low mileage Alfa Romeo hat has been well kept and maintained; it's an all around great looking vehicle. This is a-never-smoked-in beauty that looks and smells great. The exterior is black in good condition. The interior is black leather that looks new. The console and dash look great as well!

The engine sounds, runs and feels smooth and provides abundant power. The 3-liter, fuel-injected V-6 develops 200 horsepower. This is one sedan that steps rather lively from the light and doesn`t need a turbo or supercharged boost to swing quickly into and out of the passing lane. The 5 Speed Manual transmission shifts well - smoothly and easily.

All the electrical options appear to be in working order. The engine compartment looks clean, and void of any leaks. Great running condition vehicle. The A/C works well and blows cold air! We had our mechanic check the car. All in all, the car really runs great! As you can judge for yourself from the pictures - the interior is clean and looks great!

The trunk has many functions, one of which is obviously the superior cargo capacity. The back seats come down in case you need to increase the payload capacity.The trunk is very clean and roomy as you can see from the pictures. The previous owner used it sparely and it looks as if it were new. This is a unique one of a kind vehicle, that is painted with a color that really makes it stand out in the crowd of other cars. It's been garage kept, and is in good condition.

According to the vehicle report, this 164 lived in New York City for most of its life. You wouldn't know this from the appearance, though, as this car looks extremely well kept. Save for some rusty lug nuts and a marred badge on the grille, there's not much that needs tidying up. I've seen some 164 sedans priced well above $10,000 in the last few years, but these are usually museum quality pieces with under 50,000 miles. I'd say this car is priced in the ballpark. Its condition and mileage along with the S trim level and 5-speed gearbox make it one of the most desirable 164 trim combos out there.

  1. In an ideal world, I’d prefer the 24V variant in the later models, but the 164 was always an incredibly sharp car. Nice example!

  2. just wanted to say what an exceptional example that is. i have a red 164 im restoring and she runs great. and its a sedan. excellent car to drive if anyone ever gets a chance. id hang on to it tho.

  3. The fact that it’s been for sale this long would make me very nervous. In general, Alfisti are not typical clueless car buyers. Maybe the price was out of line, or maybe the seller was difficult to work with, or more likely, potential buyers found something that turned them away.
