    1981 VIN 3341, 5-Speed, Gray Interior

    1981 Delorean
    VIN: 03341
    5-Speed
    Gray Interior
    Grooved Hood
    Mileage: 34,000

    Location: Houston (Humble), Texas (USA)
    Price: $36,000

    Description: An average mileage 1981 DeLorean that was refurbished by DMC in 2005. It runs/drives well, has good stainless and a rust-free frame. Leather seats are in excellent condition.

    The good news is; that I’ve retired. Well that’s great for me, not so much for you, unless you are in the market for a pretty good DMC-12. Right now, the car is located at DMC in Humble/Houston having its latest round of work completed (see 2019 work items below) and it can be viewed there. Other than being viewable at the DMC facility in Humble, DMCTalk is the only place I’m listing it…for now. I believe this will initially help draw only serious prospective buyers.

    I purchased VIN 03341 in December 31, 2005, so I’ve owned it about 13.5 years. I believe I’m ready to sell due to my retirement and the fact that my wife and I will be moving (eventually), not sure where yet, but I’m getting ready. I have lived in the Houston metro area for many years and I purchased the car from DeLorean Motor Company in Houston/Humble as a completely refurbished car. The car under my ownership has remained in Texas so there is virtually no rust on the frame or otherwise.

    Imperfections:

    • Unfortunately it has a Dash-Mat. It came with the car when I bought it, so obviously the dash has a crack in it, and it should be replaced.
    • Some carpet pieces have faded
    • Power door locks do not work (manual lock works fine)
    • Possibly other minor things that I will post when I recall or find them)


    This car stayed garaged and high and dry during the Harvey flooding in 2017 in Houston. It is not a daily driver but has been started and run regularly. It is not driven all that often (another reason I’m selling), but I do keep a log of each time it is run or driven.

    Below are a few pictures for now. Please PM me here if interested or you need specific information. In a few days, I will setup and provide a link to a webpage with more pictures and information about the car.

    I have added an outside web page with a little bit more information and few more pictures to get started. I intend to add lots more pictures including closeups of the stainless, wheels/tires, interior, engine, and documentation. Please bear with me as I assemble more information and pictures. I will also add specific pictures as requested.

    Here is the link: VIN03341.
