1983 DMC-12, 5-speed, black, Serial 017017
You are probably one of these two people:
(1) A knowledgeable buyer. Someone who knows the DMC-12 inside and out and can recognize a good prospect, or
(2) A fan of the DeLorean who just has to own one!
This DMC has been owned by me and maintained since 1987 by one of the best and last DeLorean mechanics in the world: Rob Grady at PJGrady, Sayville, Long Island NY. I have more than $50,000 invested in maintenance on this DMC over the years, that you won't have to match. Word: If you buy a cheap DeLorean for $25,000, it could cost you another $25,000 to fix all of its problems, which most DeLoreans share.
52,850 miles. (Only 2,000 miles on brand new tires.) Cosmetically superior throughout. Functionally sound. Engine strong (never fails to start).
Steel frame and roof box suffer from rust and have been remediated by PJGrady in summer 2017 (scraped and wax sealed - refer to photos), and can be good for up to 10 years from now, keeping out of the rain and adverse weather.
Minor issues: Original FM Radio is not working. Heater/Cooling blower is noisy (screams at certain settings). Angle Drive (speedometer) is intermittent a common issue but easily fixed.
I have owner and service manuals, 30-plus-year collection of DeLorean World magazine, and more.
Location: Brady's Bend Underground Storage, East Brady, PA (Greater Pittsburgh, PA)

This car is stored and covered in a temperature- and humidity-controlled environment at Brady's Bend Underground Storage in Easy Brady, PA, near Pittsburgh, PA. The car is started and engine run every month and driven for a week once a year.
The car can be viewed (uncovered and started) by appointment only with a fee of $25 paid directly to Brady's Bend Underground staff. They cannot let you drive the car, however, which would require me or someone representing me to be present and an additional removal fee. I am in New York and the car is 450 miles away in Pittsburgh, PA. So, you can understand the difficulty.
Weather permitting, the car will be shown at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix (PVGP) 2019 international car show on July 18-19.
At last year's PVGP, I was told by a rep for one of the world's most respected luxury auction houses for automobiles that this is one of the most impressive show specimens he has ever seen (and he has owned a DeLorean, himself).
A video walkthrough of this car can be found here here
Purchaser arranges for pickup, shipping, registration, et cetera.
