Hi,
I will be selling my DeLorean next month, but for a good offer I would sell sooner.
This model has been shipped over from Miami by myself, where it had never seen the rain.
Full history
21k miles
Black interior
Manual
VIN 1086
April 1981
An amazing early model DeLorean, I've received nothing but constant smiles and pictures whenever I am using this car, a reluctant sell but a financial need. Hoping the new owner will take good care of it.

My Car is now up for sale on autotrader!
I have already had interest in this car but would much prefer to sell to an enthusiast from this website.

A couple of tips if you are looking to sell to an enthusiast. Pictures of the chassis are a must, plus some pictures of the fuse box/relay compartment (with the fuse box cover removed), along with a list of all parts which have been replaced (originality is not king on items like fuel lines, brake lines, and coolant hoses). Also include a list of what does or doesn't work, e.g. the air conditioning.

Hi Mark,
Thank you for your tips, I've taken some more pics of the car now:
There is some surface rust underneath but metal is still sturdy. I can either get this treated or discuss a lower price...
Replaced on the vehicle, new door seals and seats while at Miami DeLorean, I am unaware of other parts which have been changed.

To realistically demand that sort of price - you would expect to see a lot of replaced parts/upgrades
And a clean underneath
Chances are it's still on original fuel lines, shocks, springs, radiator, central locking , balljoints , brake lines
Does the air con work?

From the pictures it looks like original brake and fuel lines for sure. Would suspect coolant hoses to be original as well.

Chassis has a few areas that could use a bit of tarting up, and the suspension components look like they would benefit from being overhauled.

However, the seller has indicated that the price is negotiable, so taking care of maintenance/upgrade items could be factored into any potential offer.

Regards,
Mark

Hi Alistair,

Thank you for your comments I appreciate any.
As mark mentioned I would be looking to clean up the bottom of the car before selling with a thorough service and if a buyer would like to negotiate a cheaper price to fix any other faults then I am open to any discussions about it.
Yes I believe the air-con does work.

It'd be useful if you could confirm that things work instead of believing that they do, it'll help a seller fully understand then.

Wow that is strong money. Like Al said i would really expect to see a lot of updates and work done on a Car for that price. Minimum I would expect is the chassis to be clean, all fuel hoses changed, the wishbones and suspension to be rust free and no oil leaks.

Where abouts is the car located ?
