1995 Alfa Romeo 164LS

I always felt kind a bit sorry for the Alfa Romeo 164. True, it missed the rear-drive DNA from Alfa sedans of yore, but this would be the last Alfa sold in the US until the exotic 8C Competizione arrived in 2008. With its lusty V6 engine and crisp Pininfarina lines, this was a luxury sedan offering panache few other manufacturers could match at the time. Nowadays these four doors are reasonably affordable and offer an interesting choice to those seeking a mid 1990s luxury sedan on the cheap. This final year 164LS for sale in Connecticut has had but one owner and has covered a mere 25,000 miles. And yes, it has the all-important third pedal.

I’m not sure how a car like this can have such low mileage. While they were derided for their front drive architecture when introduced, they have aged to become a solid choice for those seeking a bit of driver involvement. Recently, a 164 passed me on the road and I almost mistook it for much more exotic Italian machinery due solely to its exhaust note. The fresh service, including timing belt, is certainly a plus whereas the minor cosmetic issues would be easy to resolve. The asking price of $13,500 is strong money for these, no matter how clean they are. Another, earlier low mileage 164 5-speed has been for sale for quite some time at almost $15,000. Once these 164s pass the $12,000 mark, it gets harder to find those willing to part with that kind of cash. Realistically, this car should be priced somewhere between $9,000 and $11,000. At that price point, it certainly wouldn’t last long.

    Good thing it’s so overpriced. It’s only 2 hours from my house, perfect color combo, the right year and trim level, and in great condition. It would be truly hard to resist at anything approaching a reasonable price. Of course, you would think that for such a super premium price, they could address scratches in the bumper and peeling clearcoat on the wheels (which actually looks to be pretty bad).

    The price is absurd. For that money, you could find a clean BMW 540 with a stick. Did I say the price is absurd?

    The FWD thing bugs me to no end, a huge opportunity was missed with these. Instead they’d make good garage mates with an Allante. (And I love the Allante but you know what I mean).

    For around $5k-7k, these make sense as a weird relic that can haul your dog and friends and be a hoot on the highway. Anything more is ridiculous.
