Vehicle description

Up for sale, I have my 1981 DeLorean. I"ve have owned for just over 4 years now. It saddens me to sell as I love this car, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do.
Early production - April 1981. Has it"s gas flap hood, dark wheels, and windshield with antennae embedded. Originally sold in Illinois to a MN buyer, it stayed in MN until I purchased.
Exterior is very good original. A few scratches in the stainless, and one small ding - in the middle of the hood (I can only find it in certain lighting it"s about a pin head size. Believed to be original paint on bumpers and in they are in very good shape. Had "eyebrowing" above headlights fixed. New tires installed shortly after my purchase and I"ve put 4,000 miles on the car during my ownership. All glass in excellent.
Interior is very good mostly original. Dash and binnacle are excellent, original leather on seats - seat of drivers seat is splitting. New leather shift boot installed and has a stainless steel shifter ball (original shifter ball is included in sale). Needs a new headliner and the weather stripping around the interior opening needs replaced (doesn"t leak). Weatherstripping on outer door openings and on edges of doors replaced. Windows work, A/C works, original radio works. Power locks do not.
Mechanical and electrical has been gone over by DMC Midwest in Crystal Lake IL. Over $20,000 in parts and labor spent there over the last 4 years. Aside from the few items already mentioned it has all gone into the mechanicals and electrical to make this a good solid reliable driver. The past two winters I"ve driven the car the 330 miles from Des Moines to Crystal Lake in the fall to drop it off and back again in the spring. I"ve driven this locally on many 100+ mile loops around central Iowa. Car is performing beautifully.
Some of the things done: New radiator, starter, alternator, A/C compressor (a previous owner converted to R134). 30,000 mile service completed, clutch kit, transmission serviced, exhaust gaskets replaced. Stainless overflow tank. Belts and seals - no oil leakage. Fuel system and gas tank cleaned out 1st year as it had sat in indoor storage for approx. 10 years before my purchase. Previous owner has painted any spots on chassis that epoxy has come off to protect.
I have full receipts from all work done from DMC Midwest. The tires were only thing done locally.
NO WARRANTY. SELLING TO US BUYERS ONLY. I"m available to assist with transporter pickup, just need notice.
$1000 deposit due via PayPal withing 48 hours of purchase/offer acceptance. Balance due within 2 weeks via certified check or cash. I can hold car for pick up longer but would prefer it be no longer than 2 weeks.
Please contact if any questions and I will answer them as quickly as possible.
