VIN 4463 FOR SALE

much loved 1981 DeLorean DMC 12. Manual, with the grey interior.

I've owned the car for three years, buying it off the three friends who imported it from Nevada and lovingly restored it.

The restoration on the car was no-expense spared and done to the highest of standards (Chris Nicholson refurbished the bodywork) and I believe this is as good as any DeLorean in the UK and a good as an example as you could hope to find.

We have lots of really nice history to the car - Emails from the original owner in the US, photos of it throughout it's life and a huge album of photos documenting it's journey to the UK and it's restoration.

The car has been kept inside it's whole life in the UK and has only done a minimum amount of miles each year. Any small jobs that have needed doing have always been done.

It's done 38,000 miles and comes with a full years MOT. Car is just outside of Chichester in West Sussex

MOT history is interesting...…… the mileage is all over the shop..

May 2015 64966
Oct 2016 35435
Nov 2017 355 802 (assume a typo and 5 added)
Oct 2018 35588

Chances of two mistakes in the official MOT system ?

Entirely possible. Here is a picture from that car from May 2015.

I believe the current owner is in the process of contacting the DVSA to try and have the errors corrected.

I know the car well, if anyone wants any info on it feel free to drop me a message for an unbiased opinion on it's condition.

I would say that the Nov 2017 one was actually 35580.2 and the crack MOT person naturally assumed that a 35 year old car hadn't just done only 35k

As for MAy 2015, who knows. Probably 34966 but hopefully the correct number is written on the actual MOT paper

There is no 'probably' about it, the picture I posted was taken when the car was taken for the test. It was 34966.

It's an electronic system, however the mileage is free form entry by the tester so it's entirely possible to miskey.

Does anyone seriously take any notice of mileage on a D’. Most of them have had inop speedos for years in any case
