View Full Version : For Sale VIN 4916 - Grey 5-spd $29,500 USD

01-02-2015, 12:14 PM
This is VIN 4916, a California car in excellent condition inside and out. It came from a cache of DeLoreans found locally here in BC, Canada. Volker (vps3922) also had his car come from this stash of DMC’s. We restored his car in winter 2013.

29,000 miles - well, 28,xxx but I’m going to put on a few hundred miles to shakedown any issues.

Grey 5-speed

Clean history, no accidents.

I’ve gone through this car very thoroughly. It has a massive inventory of new and NOS parts. It passed AirCare (“Smog”) and I have the paperwork with the emissions information.

All parts come from DMCNW, DPI and DPNW.

Here are some before and after pictures (not the most recent by any means)

I'm going to make some videos, but I'd be happy to take specific pictures or videos to interested buyers.

What is the process of getting the car back to the US? My understanding is that it has become a hassle to complete now that the border has been locked down some.

The process hasn't really changed. Just paperwork.

Today, whilst reinstalling the clock to the centre console I over tightened the two 7mm nuts and ruined the clock. I heard the little glass bulb/nipple break off and sure enough the clock stopped working.

What makes me sick is that this was literally 5 minutes after getting the clock back from the refurb shop (same shop that does my Craig/ASI refurbs) that changed a bad regulator and had it working perfectly. I had been waiting for it since October.

I'm going to find a donor and rebuild the clock again. I know the electronics are good, I just need a good LCD.

You know - full disclosure and all that jazz.

Sad face.

Sad face.

Could i suggest, some kind of spacer on the threads that would prevent the nuts from tightening the clock to a point that it breaks? it would space it down the shafts a bit, but it shouldn't be by much and wouldnt be noticed. some simple rubber washers should do the trick i'd think.

4916 underwent a full technical inspection (3+ hours) at DMC NW last week.

The only issue turned out to be high system pressure as a result of an incorrect spring in the PPR, which was too stiff to properly regulate pressure. This was rectified on site.

Other than some wear and tear on the weather seals (and really, what car doesn't?!), it got a clean bill of health!
