I am selling my June 81 build, VIN 01714. It has a grooved and flapped hood, black interior, dark wheels and wide side stripe. The following is a list of what has been replaced and/or updated:

Fuel System:

Cleaned Fuel Tank, distributor, WUR, 6 injectors, fuel pump/boot, sending unit, filter, accumulator


Rotors, master cylinder, flexible line on front drivers side and all lines and calipers were flushed/cleaned, passenger side E-brake cable


Water pump, plugs/wires/rotor cap/, 140 amp altenator, muffler heat shield, VOD cleaned, intake, fuel/air mixture, belts, self-bleeder on water pump, throttle spring, throttle cable


SS clutch line, slave/master cylinders. I did have the 5th nut back off, fairly common to low VIN cars. Transmission was flushed, new nut installed and orginal transmission plate was repaired. I have put over 6k miles on car since having the work done with no problems.


DMCH dash, seat covers, floor mats, shifter boor, SS shifter ball, recovered binnacle, headliners recovered

Various other things:

Relay/fuses updated, Bitsyncmasters cooling fan relay/rpm relay/fan fail relay, LEDs in marker lights, trunk/doors/dome lights/HVAC panel/instrument lights, marker lights/marker lights gasket kit, tail light boards, engine cover, hood/doors/louver struts, door seals, cooling system hoses and pipes, powder coated rock screen, thermostat, RPM motor, oil sending unit/pressure unit, otterstat, wipers, illuminated window switches, elbow pad, radio face plate/bezel, blower motor, mode switch, headlight switch, ignition switch, Eibach lowering springs, shocks, nos wheels/caps, set of Cooper Cobra GTs, headlights, custom side stripe, DeLorean bra and a few probably things that I am not recalling right now.

The DeLorean has 238xx miles. Like alot of these cars the AC does not hold a charge. The facias could use a respray. I have used the car fairly regular to drive to work and to use in car shows. I have just decided to move on to another hobby for awhile or to buy a new home. BTW, anyone wanna buy a house??? I will also include a Presenting DeLorean Banner with the VIN number added. I also have a pair of the Nike 6.0 DeLorean shoes, size 12. Still have the paper shoved in them buy the kid who made them. i.e. never been tried on. I do have a black wine bottle (full) with the DeLorean Owners Associations emblem etched into it and painted silver. The shoes and wine I will except offers. Any questions 757-647-3519 is my cell number. The car is located just west of Indianapolis, IN. I will add more pictures tomorrow.

Interesting how you have your VIN in the side stripe. Nice car!

Thanks. I am negotiable on the price. The frame has some surface rust on the front, but no rot/holes/etc.

Beautiful car. Looks even better with the wide stripe now. Good luck with the sale.

I wonder what is going on with the hood next to the gas-flap. It looks like it creases in somewhat. Is this typical for gas flap hoods?

21k isn't a bad price at all for an early vin! Out of reach for me right now, but it will make another Delorean wanna-have happy as a clam I am sure.

Next to the gas flap there isn't a crease. The flap sticks up just a little from the hood. I would say only can be seen from such an angle as that picture was taken.

Here are some more pictures. If there is something a serious buyer would like to have a picture taken of then let me know.
