    A unique thing about Deloreans, the motor is not number matched to the car. That means you can swap the motor and no one can ever tell it is not the original. This may be the time to install a Stage II motor from DMCH.

    Honestly Dave.... honestly.... How could you possibly not realize that this a joke post? It even says in my signature right in the post that my car is engine swapped.

    This isn't exactly true. The engines and transmissions were documented. How accurate are the documents I don't know I really never bothered to check. But it seems that this numbers matching thing doesn't affect the Delorean.



    I'm referring too the documents you can order from DMCH.

    DMCH had a card file on some of the early Deloreans. In some cases they had engine #'s, frame #'s, key codes, and vins. There is not much documentation that can tie things together. On most cars of the era (not Deloreans) part of the vin is stamped into the motor or the motor s/n is stamped on a data plate somewhere on the car. It was also "standard practice" to stamp the VIN number in a hidden place so if the car was stolen and the vin plates tampered with, they could find the hidden vin to identify the car. Again, not Deloreans. The only places you will find a vin # is the body plate in the driver's door jamb and the dash vin plate. Those numbers and the one on your Title and registration should ALL be exactly the same. In Delorean World there is no such thing as a "matching numbers" car.
