    Project Delorean for sale in NY at $4,900

    According to the ad this one has a 5.0 liter Ford V8 conversion. Looks pretty rough!

    If I were close I would offer him 3.5k, settle at 4k, part it out and sell Houston the rest. The quarters are probably toast judging by the black rattle can job but there is a little money to be made there if you are close by.

    Yup I'm high bidder right now but I'm close to my top dollar for that one and reserve hasn't been met.

    Looks like someone did a drive by, took some photos of the car sitting there and stuck a trolling ad on CL
    Dermot
    VIN 2743, B/A, Frame 2227, engine 2320

    I don't always drive cars, but when I do, I prefer DeLoreans

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    This car has been around for a while. I've heard about it over the past few years while doing different (non-DMC) car shows. Especially the ones I've done near the city where this car is located. I believe it's another failed engine swap. To my knowledge the owner has never participated in DMA or LINY-DMC events or tech sessions. I think It's a basket case based on what I've heard. But you can't go by the GINORMUS amount of BS you hear at car shows.

    The first ad is a new one on me. It sounds like the car must be located upstate somewhere. Judging by the snow in the pics It must be far upstate. Since the Nor' easter hit after Sandy we've been dry as a bone. In all honesty the seller of this one sounds like he has no idea what he's talking about or has no idea what he's trying to sell. I'd ask to see a few engine bay pics. He even lists it as an AMC in the ad. Possibly a misprint but I always double check my ads before posting. Might be a cheap buy from some idiot who inherited it or something.

    Does anyone have any idea what kind of transmission they could be talking about? "VW automatic transmission." My first thought would have been beetle but those were only offered in manuals.

    There was an "Automatic Stick Shift"....basically when you moved the shifter it would make contact with a switch at the base which activated a vacuum solenoid to work the cutch... just let off of the gas shift and carry on..
