Like clothing from certain Italian design houses, I know that cars like this Alfa Romeo 164 would just fit me better. Even though it shares its platform with the Saab 9000, Lancia Thema and Fiat Croma, the 164 departs from the other three with sharper, Pininfarina styling that provides a nice, tailored look to the executive sedan. This was the last new Alfa Romeo to be sold in the US before the 8C Competizione arrived and this 1995 model represents the final year of the 164 being stateside. Unlike a lot the 164 sedans we've featured previously, this 164LS has the automatic transmission.
This one owner Alfa (last year of production) has automatic transmission, leather/power/heated seats, fog lights, power windows, power door locks, headlight washers, power folding mirrors, factory 12-disc CD changer/tape/AM/FM, power sunroof and air conditioning.
Engine is in good shape, does not smoke, does not leak, nice and quiet. Recently the timing belt was replaced. Transmission feels perfect, shifts without any problems, without delay, and without noise. Suspension is in excellent shape, car tracks nice and straight. There is no evidence of any electrical problems. The exterior is in excellent shape for a 1995. The paint looks original, and there is no rust anywhere on the car. Leather seats, carpet and glass are all in great shape.
Interior of this car is nice and clean. This Alfa has four matching tires with more then 75% tread left, that are mounted on good straight rims. Our mechanics have performed all of the necessary maintenance and have replaced front brake pads. It will be sold with a clear title and it will be sold as-is, where-is.
The 164 looks good in almost any color, but in LS trim, black is a very classy choice for this stylish sedan. At $9,350, this much luxury may seem a bargain, but realistically, this car is worth somewhere between $6,000 and $8,000, even considering the low mileage. If I had the space and extra cash lying around, I'd be willing to go as far as about $8,500 to have a clean, unmolested example of one of these, even if it was automatic. The exhaust note alone is worth the price of admission.
