DeLoreans For Sale
For Sale £42,000 OVNO VIN #2677 (SOLD)
Here for sale is my 1981 DeLorean DMC-12, gas-flap model, with black interior with a manual transmission, chassis no. 2677. It was first registered in November 1981, to a couple in El Cajon,
California who owned it for 16 years. It was fully restored in part by the previous owner (a mechanic in the North West UK) and by PJ Grady in Essex between late 90s and mid 2000’s I believe. I purchased it from a Lotus and sports car specialist in Carlisle and I have owned it for almost 3 years and have put very few miles on it, never in the rain. Current mileage is an honest and original 66,700. This would mean all major issues and original parts that would have perished have been replaced and upgraded over its lifespan. It has a category 1 Scorpion alarm system, installed in July 2000, and has the paperwork for the very valuable private registration plate, DOC 16V, dated 24th September 1999. The car will also come with a custom all weather cover.The undersides and frame are clean and repainted, and the engine bay is exceptionally clean and tidy. It has a number of upgrades such as the stainless water bottle and the DOC stainless sports exhaust. Other than that, the car appears to be stock from a visual perspective, but I am sure an expert will note all the additional work and parts that have been added. It starts and runs well, I replaced the Bosch fuel distributer with a new refurbished professionally calibrated unit from DeLoreanGo last year. A new 096 Battery went in this week.The bodywork is straight and in amazing condition, it would appear it has been professionally looked after at some point. The bumpers are in excellent condition with no sagging. I have added the stainless lettering to the rear bumper for an aesthetic touch. The doors open well, and to the same height, the engine bay hatch is nice and tight. The wheels are in excellent condition with no damage.In the car, it has the original owner’s manual, slip case and service slip, the original tool kit and spare wheel. There is even a PJ Grady New York sticker in the left side quarterlight.The interior is very good but not perfect, some areas of the carpet and leather show their age, but no tears or missing sections and are not unsightly. The dashboard and binnacle have been recovered along with the seat and headlining.It has a full documented history, from the original owner who purchased it on 14th November 1981 in National City, CA with 18 miles on the odometer, with receipts and paperwork dating from the original owner onwards, totally many thousands of work. Some of the paperwork in particular is rare and interesting, including invoices from DeLorean dealerships marked with the first recall service note, RA00001 performed at 1180 miles on the odometer. Included in the extensive history, it comes with a number of very rare magazines including Volume 1, book 1 of DeLorean World, Volume 1, Number 1 and 2 of De Gull Wing owner’s club magazine, and issues of DeLorean News (DeLorean Owners Club UK) dating back to 1996, as well a small number of DeLorean One accessory catalogues. The only minor issues I have encountered are the following: the cigarette lighter does not work, there is no radio, so I have placed a storage insert in the DIN slot, one indicator light on the dashboard doesn’t work, the oil pressure gauge is stuck, the voltmeter gauge shows under volt, and the reverse lamps have stopped working. Overall, it’s a stunning piece of history and gets a lot of looks and admiration wherever you go. If you’re timid and don’t like having your picture taken, this perhaps isn’t for you. On the other hand, if you like being part of community and true international fans, then a DeLorean is perfect. I honestly believe these iconic cars will continue to appreciate in the future. Thank you for your time and interest, the car is located in West London
