The Alfa Romeo 164's launch represented the beginning of the renaissance of its maker. It was a member of the Type Four project, which resulted in four cars from Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Fiat and Saab, all sharing the same floorpan. Of all the Type Fours, the Pininfarina styled Alfa 164 was by far the prettiest. The glorious Busso three litre V6 was used in the 164 and meant that it possessed the most charismatic engine in the class. The sharp Pininfarina styling also helped to differentiate the Alfa Romeo from its cousins and the V6 could be ordered with a Veloce body kit.
This elegant looking saloon car benefitted from regularly servicing until it was put in storage for ten years. On its return to the streets, where it belongs, it has been treated to a recommissioning which included changing various belts and oil and bringing it up to the delightful example we see here today. This is truly a one-of-a-kind example of the bigger engine iconic Alfa Romeo model with low mileage, a good service history and four new tyres. Offered without reserve, this Alfa is presented to auction with a V5C registration document and an Mot Test certificate valid until January 2022. We are told this Alfa is a joy to drive and fired into life when requested.
