Re: Have You Seen This In Autotrader
It's absolutely top whack for a 164 QV and will have to be immaculate for this money. You'd need to check everything including that really expensive suspension. The rad header tank looks pretty mucky - not that they don't go that way with time but not been cleaned out.. Seller doesn't state when the cam belt/pump/idlers/tensioners etc were done but if it's been maintained regardless of cost, then the paper evidence will be there for examination.
Engine bits are just starting to become a bit patchy and some parts are quite a lot more expensive than for the later V6 engines (for example, crankshaft sensor). The 164 24V engine is unique to this model in a variety of features.
It's doubtful as an investment and I think it would be quite difficult to sell on at this sort of price so you have to want it for what it is. Provided it doesn't catch you out with an unexpected failure, it would make a great car.
I'd like it!
