1992 164s black with tan leather, approx 250k on body, 79k miles on engine

Lots of recent work:

* less than 10K since total brake job including all new rotors, new rear hard-lines, left rear caliper and parking break cable
* 20K Since New radiator
* Professional rust repair on both rear fenders with metal/fiberglass and new paint (ARGH! someone backed into the left rear in the parking lot and didn't leave insurance info !%^#@! The dent is about 5 inches across and 1.5 deep.)
* Front fenders, headlights, grill and hood from parts car installed (southern origin, excellent paint)
* new power window regulator
* less than 5K miles since new muffler
* trunk lid and spoiler from parts car installed
* spring from parts car installed left front (replaced broken spring)
* less than 50K miles since new windshield
* new head gaskets
* new timing belt and tensioner (just done!)
* new radiator hoses
* recent intake flex-pipe, K&N filter
* recent front suspension bushings
* side mirrors from parts car installed
* Engine runs strong and smooth, no visible smoke from tailpipe when you mash it (and it IS fun to horse around a bit )
* Eclipse AM/FM CD, Canton 6 1/2" separates in the front, Polk Carbon Coax separates in rear (kickin' stereo!)
* lots more little stuff!


Known problems:

* Speedo does not work, probably the wire got damaged during the engine swap
* Power steering rack leaks fluid at about a quart every 500 miles, rack on parts car is good.
* Oil pressure reads low at idle, its a bad sender, pressure reads 20-25psi at idle hot and 60psi at 3500 RPM hot when measured with an external gauge (with 10w40 Mobil-1).
* Alarm/keyless entry has a short somewhere and does not arm, unless disabled alarm drains battery.
* Passenger side front power lock non-functional
* Rust on right front jack-point needs repair
* ABS light on
* Active suspension defaults to sport about 70% of the time (probably a bad wheel sensor)
* AC blows only a little cooler than the incoming air, should recover with a recharge
* Needs some love, and a good detailing!

Runs and drives great!

bunch of parts, repair manual, and 8 Alfa-Speedline 15" alloys included.

Asking $1750 MUST SELL! No Reasonable Offer Refused! Will consider trade for motorcycle.

What is the condition of the interior? Manual or automatic transmission? You mention "originally southern car" was it this car or the parts car that is southern?

The parts car was southern, this 164 has been in New England (Mass/VT) for at least the last 10 years, though Carfax reports it was tittled in Florida for several years. To the best of my knowledge all 164-S's sold in North America were manual transmission. The interior is excellent. Leather is in very nice shape, clean and well-moisturized, no cuts or abuse. Carpets are clean and hardly show any wear at all, headliner and trim are all excellent. I do have a deposit on the car at the moment, but full payment is still pending...
