    Middle East Deloreans

    On previous dmctalk, there was a thread like this and now I start it here too. I found a very good thread on deloreaneurotec and I thought I share a few things from there. It was a great read to me.

    VIN..16006 was also a Middle East car for at least some of its life.
    Although not part of any group purchase, it spent time in Saudi Arabia.

    Heavily customized by several of the previous owners, and at one time,
    the car was painted black and had huge fender flares bolted onto the
    fenders (parts from a conversion van, IIRC), red carpet installed over
    the gray interior, white vinyl headliners, white steering wheel center cap
    and some gold painted accents as well. Some work was done at PJ Grady
    before and after it returned from Saudi Arabia and Rob says he has photos
    somewhere, of what the car looked like with the fender flares installed, etc.
    By the time I bought the car, the flares and paint had been removed.

    Included in the glove box was a photo of the previous Saudi Arabian owner,
    so I dubbed the car "the Sheik Car". I will try to find the Sheik photo.

    Later,
    Rich W.

    Hi Rich, thanks for chiming in

    I have that car on my list, Chris N sent me some pictures of it...albeit just the underbody from memory.

    There is another in Dubai that turned up recently, but had a US sticker on it, and was almost imported via the US, the owner is still trying to be tracked down, there are also 1/2 similar cons to 16006 in Sweden that reportedly were imported from Saudi but via the US, also they don't hold the characteristics of the 11741-11789 'batch' but the stock report in April 1982 details 50 cars, that only accounts for 48 what where the other 2 vins?
    551 is a possibility having been reimported back into UK and does not appear to have ever been to the US, again research is ongoing!

    Andy,

    Sorry, forgot to check my archives in the past couple of months.

    I asked Rob about the "original" photos (late 1980's) about 5 years ago
    so I am not holding my breath for those photos to surface anytime soon.

    I have a few photos of when I picked up the car on LI in NY in 2006,
    but most of those photos only show the "paint stripped" exterior.

    I think the Sheik photo is still in the glove box insert (removed from car)
    and those parts are under a pile of other used parts in one of my trailers.
    It was 8 degrees last Saturday morning when I attempted to look for a
    few parts and it was way too cold for parts hunting. Maybe this weekend?

    As for the LI NY photos, I may get a little time this weekend to check
    the archive, but if not, I can check during my vacation over the holidays.

    Later,
    Rich W.
