Absolutely MINT CONDIDTION in and out. Pictures don't do it justice. 3 owners total since 1991. Meticulous record keeping dating back to original owner.  GARAGED most of its life. Exterior shines like a new car with no paint fading or clear coat peeling or yellowing to be seen anywhere. Interior is in phonomenal condition with almost no wear to speak off or seam separating issues at all. Here is a quick break down:

CLEAN AUTO CHECK REPORT (SCORED 33 POINTS)...............NO ACCIDENTS.............CLEAN TITLE............NO RESERVE..........

1. Interior switches all work (windows, locks, sunroof, seats)

2. Interior Door handles all intact and function properly

3. Interior Dash switches and displays (all work)

4. No warning lights on dash

5. AC works (cool not super cold)

6. Interior Dome/foot lights/door lights (all work)

7. Perfect Original Headliner (NO SAGGING, NO STAINS)

8. Perfect carpets (no stains)

9. Original Alfa Romeo Logo floor mats (good condition)

10.Exterior is in amazing condition as described above with no clear coat or fading issues

11.Tires are in almost new condition

12.Wheels are in excellent condition (no cracks or dents or major curb damage)

13.Very good brakes

14.Steering works perfect

15.No funny noises or smells

16.Extensive records since new

17.Automatic transmission shifts perfect and is very smooth (major documented service from a few years ago)  

18.No exhaust leaks to be heard.

19.Ansa rear muffler with chrome tips (perfect shape and sounds really good and deep not intrusive or overly loud)

20.Tracks perfect (no pulling to either side)

21.All lights work (headlights, taillights, fog lights, parking lights, rear fog lights, trunk lights, signal lights, hazard lights, reverse lights)

22.Engine bay is super clean (new clean coolant bottle)

23.New window tint all around

24.Timing Belt was done around ( around 6K ago)

I bought the car since it was super clean and shows pride of ownership. I have owned many Alfa's over the years and this has to be the best of the best that I have seen condition/mechanical and meticulous record keeping wise. It was supposed to be my every once in a while getaway car but I have just gotten my hands on another beast that I have always wanted to get and since neither space nor budget will allow me to have both, I have decided to move ahead with the sale of this beauty.   

I know most Alfisti's prefer manual transmission but I have owned 4 automatic 164's over the years and enjoyed them just as much with no issues to speak of. 

Please ask questions first. If you are looking for a real super clean almost pristine (minus a tiny scratch on rear bumper that can easily be touched up by a professional body shop) then this is ITTTTTTT.

Faults are few: Overhead console sticky with a couple of cracks in it, one scratch on rear driver's side bumper corner, AC cool but not super cold....That's it)

Extra's shown:

1. European Projector Headlight

2. European Taillights with amber signals

3. 164S Center Tail 

4. Almost new Shop Manual

5. Custom car cover

6. Dash mat

The above extra's are all included in the sale (almost $1000 in value)

So bid with confidence. This is not your average beat up 164 you see on ebay every so often. This is a true collectors item. You will be amazed by its condition.

Good Luck To All

Fiat reconsidering Mazda-based Alfa Romeo roadster? [w/poll]

Mon, 03 Mar 2014 10:00:00 EST

Alfa giveth and Alfa taketh away. With apologies to Job (he has gone through a lot, after all), that's how things are looking at the Italian automaker - whether it's the promise of new products or its impending return to the North American market. But it's especially true when it comes to new roadsters.
While Alfa Romeo is expected to unveil the 4C Spider at the Geneva Motor Show this week, reports are now suggesting that its other roadster project is being called into question. That project is a joint venture between Fiat and Mazda, which was set to produce a version of its next MX-5 Miata as an Alfa Romeo, and was even changing the design to accommodate Alfa's requirements.
Now it appears, however, that the whole project in doubt. The problem seems to stem from Sergio Marchionne's pronouncements that, as long as he's in charge, there won't be an Alfa Romeo built outside of Italy.

Audi rumored to buy Alfa Romeo, officials deny it

Thu, 28 Mar 2013 19:00:00 EST

For more than two years, Volkswagen has been making public statements about its willingness to buy Alfa Romeo and quadruple the Italian brand's sales, and for just as long, Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne has replied with some version of "Mr. Piëch, drop it." According to a report in Ward's Auto, all that jousting might be over: it claims that sources close to both Marchionne and Audi CEO Rupert Stadler admit that the two are in talks for Audi to buy not just Alfa Romeo, but a production plant in Italy. In fact, a final deal could possibly include partsmaker Magnetti Marelli.
Against that backdrop, a report by German news weekly Stern quotes a Fiat spokesmen as saying it doesn't comment on rumors and an Audi rep has said flatly that "There is no substance in the news." If a sale is being arranged, the timing would seem to point to how eager Fiat is to raise cash to complete its major initiatives. Even though Alfa Romeo continues to delay its return to the US, it just showed off the production version of the 4C at the Geneva Motor Show (shown above) and said that preferred Fiat dealerships here would get them. Then there's Alfa's recently concluded deal with Mazda to develop a roadster based on the next generation MX-5 Miata - a deal that would seem to help both the Italian and Japanese brands.
The monetary issues are troublesome, though. Fiat is taking a beating in the European market and its weak-kneed balance sheet is delaying gotta-have-it products like the Jeep Cherokee. Fiat has been talking to banks about getting money to buy the rest of Chrysler and those financial institutions have also raised issues about debt and cash reserves, and the nasty game of chess Fiat is playing with the United Auto Workers (and now the court system about the portion of Chrysler it doesn't own) could end up blowing another hole in Marchionne's plans. It is possible that this could finally have convinced Fiat to at least see how serious Audi's parent company, Volkswagen, is about buying Alfa Romeo. Or it could be just another rumor.
