The time has come to sell "the dream". I am the third owner of this excellent example of the 1981 DeLorean Motor Company DMC-12. Ideal grey interior, anual transmission. Clean title. Has ALWAYS been stored indoors and under a car cover when not being driven. I have only driven the car around town a few times a year, he farthest I've ever gone in it was SLC. I know for a fact that the previous owner did the same once it came here from California 20 years ago or so.
I have kept this car as original as possible, hile replacing and updating "known to fail" parts with the best possible replacements/upgrades (all from DMC Texas), ncluding:
**New/upgraded fuel pump
**New fuel tank
**Upgraded Eibach suspension (custom springs and shocks made specifically for the DeLorean from Eibach)
**New gas struts on all doors and hinges
**New/upgraded Bosch relays and fuses
**New tires, br> **Battery kill switch
**Coolant flushed
**New stainless braided fuel lines and clutch lines
**New weather stripping (still in box)
**New black DMC floormats
**New master cylinder
**New slave cylinder
**New fuel pressure accumlulator
**New leather shift boot
**New ball joints (just in case, till in box)
*A/C is charged with the old R12 freon and blows ICE cold.
*Leather in GREAT shape as it has rarely seen the son. No tears, o rips.
With these replacements/upgrades, he DeLorean has become very reliable and a joy to drive. The only thing that is not flawless with this car is center headliner is starting to sag ever so slightly.
The only issue I ever have (intermittently) with it is often referred to as the "hot start" issue. Occasionally, ut not every time I drive it, f I have been driving it for a while and then shut it off for 20 minutes or so, nd then start it again, t will crank for about 10 seconds before it starts. The fuel accumulator I replaced was supposedly the solution to this problem, nd after talking with DMC NW, t appears this is just a common issue amongst most DeLoreans that just must be dealt with.
This car means a lot to me and I've taken the best care of it possible, you will not be disappointed. It has been a lifelong goal of mine to own one and now I feel it's time for someone elses dream to come true. Please feel free to call, ext, r email anytime. I am willing to talk price. Make me an offer. As John DeLorean would say, Live the Dream".
