1981 DeLorean DMC-12 #6396. Blue over Grey Leather. 5-Speed. Dealer painted by Tate Cadillac in Pomona, CA. Originally red, it was repainted an incredible metallic blue a few years ago. Approximately 25,500 miles (mileage might increase slightly). This car was with its original owner until just four years ago. The car spent about 20 years in California and about 12 years in Arizona. I am the third owner and I bought it about three years ago. When I purchased the car I drove it nearly 1,000 miles home without an issue. I did have some hot start issues at one point (typical for a Delorean) that my mechanic was able to resolve. I have about $4,000 in service receipts since I bought the car, mostly for fuel delivery and K-Jet Injection service. The car includes the rescue manual that will help troubleshoot common issues to avoid a tow. The car also includes its original window sticker, tons of service records and Delorean memorabilia. The service records go back to 1982, when the car wore CA plates A RED DL. The selling dealer, Tate Cadillac was known for painting these cars (red, white, black). These painted cars can be returned to stainless steel finish, but it would be a shame to revert this one to stock.
The car does have some small, mostly cosmetic issues. The black portion of the rear bumper could be repainted (see photos). The instrument binnacle has a crack on the top (see photo). The footwell rugs probably aren't original and the driver's side is dirty. The front cargo lid release lever has detached, as has the rearview mirror (both happened right after it's last service). The clutch pedal makes a squeaking sound, and there is a slow leak in the clutch hydraulics that requires topping off on occasion. The left front tire has a slow leak.
The car appears very original (other than the paint). The glass appears to be original. The seats had sheep skin covers when I bought the car and have just a little bolster wear. The tires are like new and are probably just a few years old, and the wheels appear refinished. I believe the radio is original.
Clean Autocheck and Clean PA Title in Hand.
I have 100+ High Resolution Photos of the car, but unfortunately will not let me link to them. Please send a message and I will send you a link.
