This beautiful example of the DeLorean marque has been thoughtfully maintained and enjoyed by the current owner for the past 30 years. It was purchased new in 1981 by one of the founding members of the Pacific Northwest DeLorean Club. An early car, built in April of 1981, it has the desirable gas flap hood and a rich looking black interior. The glove box lid boasts the signature of Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown in the Back to the Future film series). The frame and suspension are solid and in very good condition.
This car has relatively low miles considering it's age, but it has been driven and enjoyed consistently through the years. A savvy owner knows that this is an important consideration when looking at a 38 year old classic exotic - consistent use means consistent maintenance. The BF Goodrich tires are in good condition, boasting sporty 245 mm width tires in the rear. The engine starts readily, the transmission shifts smoothly, and the car drives very well.
Cosmetically, there is a minor rub on the front fascia, and a few small bubbles on the rear fascia (see pictures). These paint bubbles have been evident since the car was purchased by the current owner 30 years ago, and have not changed. They are thought to be original from new. The fascias have the original paint.
DeLoreans are becoming increasingly collectible, and their values are expected to increase accordingly. Here is a chance to own an excellent example of this unique classic.
