Pininfarina Legacy for Pennies: 1991 Alfa Romeo 164

The Alfa Romeo 164 was designed by Enrico Fumia (designer of Grifo D'Oro Bertone, Siata Spring, Ferrari F90 & Lancia Ypsilon) when he worked at design house Pininfarina. The angular design was part of the Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia and Saab cooperative agreement to develop the Type Four platform, which produced the Lancia Thema, Saab 9000, Fiat Croma and Alfa Romeo 164.  They are a cool sight on the road today -- equally stunning and stealthy, and I'd love to daily drive one if I didn't actually need to get to work each day. Find this 1991 Alfa Romeo 164 offered for $5950 in Westlake Village, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

*** READ CAREFULLY**** I will NOT respond to offers UNLESS you see car in person. I don’t have the luxury of time to take more pictures of the car. If you can’t make the decision to step up and see the car from the pictures in the ad, this car is not for you. I will not respond to dramatic emails and texts by Nigerian princes/princesses will also go ignored.I do not need help selling it. Please don't bother to make offer without seeing car first. I don't need to know about you or your interests, etc. I'm just a guy selling a car. So keep that in mind when you text me with a trade, etc. Questions not pertaining to the car will not be addressed. Unless you are serious and have the cash, don't waste my time.

  1. I guess I’m not allowed to buy.


  2. The guy puts a sentence or two of description and then a couple paragraphs about not contacting him. Sounds like a hostile twat - enjoy continuing to own this car!

  3. I am a Nigerian Prince so that rules me out!

    1. I'm in quarantine with my girlfriend...in Canada...you wouldn't know her. I'm out too.

  4. I can't get enough of this interior. Also you could pretend this car was one of these it's even the right colour.

  5. Yeah. "Seller" doesn't mention "Quadrifoglio" at all? My guess - this is a Nigerian Prince, trying to outscam all the other Nigerian Princes. It's a tough game. Well played, my liege.

  6. The link seems to go to a similar model in far worse shape.
