Very hard to find a 164 in this condition. I have owned this car for almost 4 years. I am an Alfa Romeo enthusiast, especially for the 164. Every owner of this vehicle has kept up with the maintenance including myself. I have full service records from day one. Original window sticker and documents from the original owners purchase. This car drives extremely well, especially for a 164! Rust free! Small dent on the rear of the car that has chipped paint. Car has minor chips and scratches from normal use. I drive this car often and wouldn’t hesitate taking it for a long drive.

Just had the motor taken out by a professional Alfa mechanic (Eric from Autosport) with the subframe and had ALL the gaskets replaced, including the head gaskets. Valve adjustment to factory spec. Full timing belt service with all pulleys and serpentine belts. Front motor mount replaced. New coolant tank, all fuel line hoses. Rubber brake lines replaced and flushed with fresh fluid. New NGK plugs and full tune up with rotor and cap. New Air flow meter. All components inspected and changed as needed. Oil pan was removed last year and resealed with a hard to find gasket. Kuhmo Tire’s on recently refinished salami cutter speedline wheels. I also tracked down these rare Recaro seats and professionally installed them. Even the heated seats work! These are original seats for a 164 but an expensive option that most people didn’t get! In the last 10,000 miles, previous owner had a clutch done along with other expensive work such has the steering rack, starter, alternator. Like I said, full service history. Dealer records and more. I even have the original gas ticket from the dealer on the date of sale! Bill of sale from the Alfa dealer, pre delivery inspection paperwork and more. I have the service records in order from 1991-2019

No major oil leaks! No overheating, runs cool, even in summer. Electric cooling fan kicks in as should. Transmission smooth as butter. No gear crunching. Motor pulls very nicely.

Car drives super smooth. Electronic suspension still functions. All windows go up and down. All lights work. Radio is upgraded to a vintage alpine CD deck with extremely good sound from Polk audio speakers. (Original radio comes in a box) Air condition is charged with a new ac dryer and works (sometimes) BUT typical 164 issue here, stepper motor for the blend door is not working properly. This car can use a set of new stepper motors which I have and will come with the car.

Original keyless entry system/alarm works and comes with the small key for the system. Very clean interior! Leather dash pod is warped from Sun and age.

Catalytic converter delete. Has a nice Y pipe. Tasteful sound from the exhaust.

Overall a very good clean example of a fully functioning 164 that turns heads! Hard to find.

Not a rust bucket! California car most of its life! Never driven in winter and driven on nice days mostly to car shows and weekend cruises! Even the Columbus Day parade here in Chicago!

Alfa quirks: warning light for the airbag is on. Temp sensor warning light is on but gauge fully works and does not over heat. Hard to find a good sensor. Odometer does not work since beginning of this year after major engine out service. ( I have mileage corresponding up until 127,xxx miles. Can’t find a replacement sensor.

Clean and clear Illinois title in my name ready for transfer.
