It does take some time to get a sale with these cars, but eventually it does happen. Patience IS required. It is a good car.

Truth. That same red 164S has been off-and-on for sale on Seattle craigslist for what, two years now? (Not jckevin's but that red one with the OZ wheels)

164 Alfas are unappreciated cars by most, even Alfa lovers, unless they have driven them, and then they begin to appreciate their attributes and drivability. They are fun to drive, and is certainly one of my fav Alfas of all the ones I've driven through the decades. Simply put, potential buyers have to test drive the car to get the idea.

I did, and was smitten, the 91S putting a wide grin on my face, same as my first Alfa, the 64 Sprint GT.

The 164 is still for sale but almost sold last week. The buyer was a HS kid, who is part of a big-time Alfa family in the Seattle area. He wised up and decided not to buy and bring with him to the midwest for college.

In the process of showing the car it was inspected by their chosen mechanic. That went quite well.

Also, I just paid $325 for awesome interior detailing.

So if you're interested lemme know!

My 94 LS is essentially a Q (runners and trans), but without the lower Q fairings and front dam, and with Konis instead of the 'electroshocks'. It is a blast to drive. This 94Q for sale would be the same.

sigh, I told myself no more 164...

tell me, can the clear coat and only the clear coat be redone or does it have to go down to primer again?

I have no firsthand experience, but everything I've read says that the base and clear both need to be redone to get good adhesion and a durable finish. If the car is garaged you might be ok just doing the clear, but respraying the base is not that much extra work.

Ah....
the fine print.
I see it reads needs struts.
Oh the irony, I just removed my 164LS struts and mailed them to Connecticut.

I guess it wasn't meant to be.

Please understand that this car does not need replacement suspension struts, unless one has leaked (which could be rebuilt anyway if needed), just trunk lid struts according to the ad, which I don't recommend using anyway.

The trick to avoid getting fender damage, as discussed before, is to use S lid springs instead, because it does have the heavy rear spoiler. I fabbed a pair of clips to hold the rear of S springs for this car, but they were never picked up, alas. When the car sells, I will give the new owner these clips w/fasteners. All that is needed is to install them, get some used S springs, or double up the Q springs, and use front clips from early B or L which had springs to attach the fronts of the springs. Did this on my LS with no problems, and is guaranteed not to damage the fenders as others have reported (because of the hinge design, the struts overload and distort the hinges and the top of the strut can then rub against the inside of the rear fender, and cause external damage if left unchecked).
