1992 Alfa Romeo 164 - A Bargain? Maybe, Maybe Not.

If it were a little closer to me, I'd go check this car out in person.

A $1900.00, 126,000 mile, Alfa Romeo 164 is usually not a bargain. By the time you're done making it right, you've got a $5000.00, 126,000 mile, Alfa Romeo 164. Not much of a bargain, really.

But, then again, you never know.

Based on the pictures, this looks like a nice car. There might be some clearcoat peeling on the hood, but I can't see any other big issues with the body. It has a March 2012 New Jersey inspection sticker. The seller leaves a check list stating that everything is good on the car, but he is selling it "as is". The car is an automatic, which might be a turn-off for a lot of people.

If you live close by and are looking for a driver-quality 164, this one might be worth checking out.

Located in Newark, NJ, click here to see the dealer's listing.

A big thanks to JaCG reader, Michael, for pointing this car out to me!

That engine/transaxle needs to replace the Fiat 1.5l in an X1/9.

what's up with the dreamy, slightly-out-of-focus pictures? should i be pinching myself?

my sister's ex bought himself a 200K-mile, well maintained 164L a few years back and it was nothing but reliable. things were worn out, of course, but the car started and drove all the time.

Scariest part is that it is listed by a used car dealer in Newark. Not many gems on those lots.

These are nice cars when sorted. But difficult to work on and parts very expensive.

If it needs timing belt and stepper motoRs, there is $2k in work right there.
