    5-Spd Manual, Gray, Grooved hood, driver condition, mid-$30s

    Hello!

    After a lifetime of obsession and several years of research and financial preparation, I'm finally in a position to start looking for my Delorean. My budget falls generally into the mid-$30s.

    I am located in Nashville, TN, and Iím okay with traveling for the right car to check it out in person if the timing and budget works. In general, Iím looking for a car thatís ready to enjoy with no major work needing to be done to get it into driving condition. In general, I'm looking for a good condition, ready to drive, manual transmission, gray interior, lighter wheels, highly prefer a grooved hood with no gas flap. I'm okay with some upgrades needing to be done, as I plan on improving the car over time and taking care of it under my stewardship.

    Must Have:
    • Bare stainless
    • 5-speed Manual Transmission
    • Gray interior (I'd say highly highly preferred)
    • Maintained and serviced with records to show
    • Currently turnkey condition, ready to enjoy
    • Upgraded fuel system components
    • Good condition frame, no rot
    • Okay with minor blemishes on exterior and normal wear on interior, doesnít have to be concourse perfect (A 20 footer, if you will)
    • Title clean and ready to go
    • Within United States



    Preferred but not required (Understood some of these shift the price range up):
    • Grooved hood, no gas flap
    • Light gray wheels
    • Eibach suspension upgrade
    • Stage-2 or DPI Spec-2 upgrades major plus
    • Any mix of upgrades installed throughout the car, for example: LEDs, stainless overflow tank, relays, etc.. are a big plus as well



    Dealbreakers:
    • Project cars
    • Rot on the frame and engine block
    • Engine and Transmission issues
    • Major body damage requiring panel replacement or fiberglass repair


    Are there any out there? Let's talk! I can be contacted here or email: mike.parra.design (at) gmail.com

    Was promised to be offered to 2 others first, but I will have one coming shortly, fully restored, checks all your boxes other then will start to flirt with higher 30ís rather then mid, and itís in Canada, not that it should make much of a difference. I brought it from Jackson

    Awesome! Where in Canada? Do you happen to have photos of the car and documentation of the items that were restored and replaced? Feel free to PM me with details.

    Sorry, my mistake!
    I left it the first time through. It was read but later quoted in one of six 'not interested in selling' posts, and got caught up in the mess...
