[DML] My '81 DeLorean for Sale Charlotte, NC



Hey List,
My 1981 Grey Interior 5-speed VIN #5252 is up for sale. I thought I'd 
let you guys know before I put the car up for sale on collector car 
trader or anything like that. It's a true daily driver DeLorean. It 
has been it's past 3 owners only car, and has been driven every day 
since it's extensive restoration in 1998. Receipts totalling around 
$20,000 from it's DeLorean Motor Center restoration in 1998, and well 
documented maintenance dating as far back as the mid 1980s. The car 
currently has 84,000 miles. It fires up happily every time, and idles 
perfectly. The car has a solid frame: it resided in California until 
it came to the East coast in 1998. Though I have only owned this 
particular DeLorean 2 years, I've known the car's past two owners, 
and have spent a good amount of time in the car since 2000. 

Cosmetically it's very nice... the stainless has been regrained to a 
beautiful sheen, the fascias have been repainted, and the wheels have 
been powder coated. Many extra little touches such as a custom 
stainless radiator screen have been added. Interior is nice and show 
presentable, but the binnacle is cracked and the driver's seat has a 
crack on the back as well (I am a total perfectionist in regards to 
DeLoreans). I will consider fixing/replacing these items for a 
serious buyer. Headliners are new with Grady fiberglass backing 
boards. Original floormats included. Sound system has been upgraded 
and really thumps: $400 El Kameleon CD player, Rockford Fosgate 
speakers all around, and a Pioneer amplified bass tube. 170 MPH 
speedo. 

Mechanically the car has too many updates/upgrades to list here. It 
has all Zilla mods (Fan, Tank, Lock, plus an alarm system); 
electrical, and cooling system upgrades all completed. Since I've 
owned the car ALL (including under intake manifold) hoses have been 
replaced with silicone; all belts, and tires have been replaced as 
well(Michelin Pilots $$$). I've upgraded the radiator to a brass 3-
core, and I just installed a new 140 Amp alternator. All workshop 
manuals included. 

It would take very little to make this car perfect. I hate to sell 
it, but my current priority is buying a condo. Anyone who knows me 
knows my passion for the DeLorean automobile, and I will hope to have 
another one within a couple of years (I've always wanted an automatic 
anyways!). I just can't imagine life without a DeLorean. Email me for 
further details and for pictures Louie(AT)DeLorean.com or call my 
cell: 704-591-2447.
