It sounds like you are looking for either an earlier 164L (1991-'93+, luxury leather seats etc.) or 164B (base fabric seats etc.) version. The sportier and I believe more desirable 'S' and the 'Q' (~'95 quad or 4 cam) engine only came with a 5 speed manual transmission. The LS also has the quad cam engine which may be a bit more subject to cam timing issues. There are regularly nice cars on eBay but it may require that you ask a lot of questions and IF it sounds very nice, go look and pay for a pre-purchase inspection.I live in Connecticut and am looking for an Alfa Romeo 164. Not interested in the 164LS. Would prefer an automatic.
I live in Ct and have have a 91 164L Black on Black, automatic great car I am the second owner. My mechanic gave me in trade for my 164 5 speed when I blew the engine on the 5 speed. Entire front end was rebuilt at 110 k has 157k now, but hardly driven in the last two years - just dropped3 k into new exhaust and other work - a very fast sweet ride, new tires everything being tweaked and updated as we speak, if you are really serious, I'll trade you for the right Milano Verde or make a deal to sell it at a reasonable price - clear clear coat is going on the hood and top - and left fender has a crease - s wheels. If you want a 164 in Ct here it is - you can't get any closer to CT then Ct.
