I am strangely attracted to this, I reckon it mght just be a briliant buy.

Does 'full service' mean cambelt service? New shocks alround reads good, but I've read the 'Merc.' bush at the rear can be an issue. I am not sure about the giant Biscione decal on the front doors.

Surely a contender for worst sales pictures ever. V6 or nothing in these IMO.

Despite the 166 being one of the uglies Alfas I've ever seen therefore the one most in need of a facelift, I never knew they actually did one. And now I know why... how very dull.

I had a red one of these as my first car! Gutless 1.3 engine but it saw me through Uni and beyond. Also taught me how to handbrake turn! ??

My pal had one as a winter beater in the 2000s to save his immaculate JDM Yellow DC2 from rusting in the drizzle...

It really was a lean forward to get better traction car

I also broke the passenger seat as they're made for bantam weight folk; I was only around 18 stone at the time too biggrin laugh

Still a good looking car! Handsome proportions and a nice big glasshouse.

I Bought a brand new one of these in may/june 2000. IIt was a 2 door 'sky' model that cost me just over 7k at the time. I wanted rid of it within a couple months But the same dealer I bought it from was offering 2.5k as a trade in so kept it a year before punting it onto my bro in law for 2k just to get rid.

Granted he kept it for over 10 years and it ran faultlessly in that time without even a oil change.

Don't like silver, no interior photos? However, long MOT, not crazy mileage... 36 miles away.. if my car died tomorrrow, this would be in the top 10.

The lack of interior photos is a strange one as 166 addicts seem to go on about the cabin ambiance and style.

No doubt rubbish. But for some reason I enjoyed looking at the pictures: https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202102038...

From a more charming era of trim levels - "bonus". Ie getting anything at all was a bonus!

It's crazy, in this world of slitty windows, how huge that rear side window seems - positively panoramic, despite the tiny proportions.

The CX Safari made £750 on eBay, buyer left me a £200 deposit and he's coming to collect tomorrow. Not looking forward to loading the thing onto a trailer without a winch, especially with how low it is.

Splendid simplicity. I prefer it to the blue Ghia in the next post.
