I'll selling my 164ls it's a rust free california car with 130000 miles, it's missing the engine but otherwise is good parts car. The reason it was taken off the road was an electrical problem the previous owner had. Located in central illinois, will need to be towed. Make an offer worse I can say is no.

It's still available if anyone wants to make an offer, I would hate to scrap it.

Hmm, depending on the condition of the body, ie, rust, systems, interior, etc, it might be returned to running, as there are ok used engines and transmissions available, making it a kit car for a home toolie. How much more would it cost to buy a newer car with the same Alfa driving experience and handling?

The PO had an electrical issue, I pulled the engine for another project that I have, and I just need to free up space.

Oh, phap, I didn't notice that it was an LS. Still same argument but more difficult, although a good running LS IS superior in performance over a 12v 164, having driven both with energetic enthusiasm. The 12V 164 is fun to drive around town and in winding roads but the LS feels much more like a storming tiger on more open roads and sweeping curves. Best all around Alfa I've driven for that, bar none.

I still miss ours but our Chevy SS duplicates the performance with ease, just quite different, numb being the operative word. That car represents both gain and loss. Wanted to try an American muscle car for a little while anyway.

Hope someone rescues the LS.

The engine and trans is already pulled so I don't think it would be to bad to drop in a manual trans with a 24v or 12v.
