Need help saving an original Delorean VARI mould

Postby RunDMC » Thu Jan 11, 2018 4:30 pm

Hey Guys,
I’ve recently discovered an original Delorean VARI mould sitting in a field in Norfolk and was wonder if anyone wanted to help save it from destruction? I would love to help save it if possible and wanted to know if anyone had the space to store it? My thoughts are it could be restored and either used by the Delorean community to help with restoration work or donated to a suitable museum.

Please get in touch if you think it’s worth saving or being left to its likely fate of being destroyed in scrap yard in the next few weeks.

It's been on Ebay for the best part of a year, the problem is:
- it's only the top half mould (you need the bottom half as well)
- it's not in great condition
- it might not even be correct - it is a prototype mould after all - it's not one of the moulds that were actually used in production, as they are now in America - so it will probably be different to the final production version
- even the ones in America have never been used since 1982 - not a lot of call for that particular part, plus it's a pretty specialist job to actually make use of it.
- it's pretty big..... :D

Thanks Arran,
I didn't realise it was a prototype mould, that's really helpful info :thumbsup:
If only there was a Delorean museum this could go to?
