Low Miles AutoBox: 1994 Alfa Romeo 164

Nineteen Ninety-four was a good year for cars. You could get a Buick Roadmaster Estate with the LT1 V8, or a Mk IV Supra with the 2JZ-GTE, or an NA MX-5 Miata with the bigger 1.8 liter BP-ZE inline-4 — but for some unknown reason I find myself inexplicably drawn to this next Alfa like a moth to a hadron collider.  Find this 1994 Alfa Romeo 164 here on eBay bidding for $3,550 reserve-not-met with 4 days to go, located in Fairfield, NJ.

The Alfa Romeo 164 was the last of the angular styled sedans to come
from Alfa Romeo Automobiles S.p.A. before it was acquired neutered by Fiat.  The
164 was the fruit of the Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia, and Saab cooperative
agreement to develop the Type Four platform, which produced the complicated Lancia Thema, fast Saab 9000, unforgettably ugly Fiat Croma and stately Alfa Romeo 164.

Of course, the low-mile, excellent-condition, well-priced Alfa 164 you find for sale will have a slushbox mating the sonorous 3.0 liter Busso V6 to the front wheels…but for the one legged 90s Alfa lover, this is a fabulous looking car.
