    DeLorean for sale for less than $13k

    That might be a candidate for a DPI or DMCH rebuild Core. I donít believe the wheels are even attached to the chassis or the Frame is completely rotted out at the suspension attach points.

    To warn people to stay away.

    I actually like the taillights with all yellow faded away.

    Damn! It looks like it was used to jump a set of railroad tracks or Sheriff Rascoe's squad car! There might be $4,000 worth of parts plus the value of the title if it is clean.

    Sad.

    My guess is disintegrated frame + picked up and put down with a forklift several times

    The description says "sitting in storage". Like at the bottom of a lake! It is telling that there are no pictures of the underneath. Probably no frame left. Parts car.

    And yet someone WILL buy it. My point from the beginning is 14k at one time got you a running car, a project resto but at least somewhat roadworthy.

    Agreed, I can relate 100% to your point because my own car was exactly that 24 years ago.

    Totally agree...

    When I bought 4728 in 2015, I often said that I knowingly overpaid by a few thousand but expected within a few years it appreciate to the price I paid. By 2017 it easily did that, and from the looks of things the market is still trending upwards.

    Although, we still see a story now & then of some lucky bastard scoring a running/driving/maintained car for <18K.
    VIN 4728 is on standby to have its new exhaust installed, and has lost priority to a kitchen/living room renovation & 60-80 hour work weeks.
