I disagree - I think the price is affected: Negatively.

Painted DeLorean = "Car got into an accident and was bondo-repaired"
in many buyers' minds. Certainly this is not always the case and for
that matter it may be more of a myth than anything. I'm sure there are
examples of this happening but who knows what the ratio of "I wanted
to paint it" to "I had to paint it" cars is.

The point is, you don't know. The stainless is one of the most unique
and cool features of this car. Once painted, restoring it back may not
be easy and you don't know what you're going to find under there.
Maybe the stainless is nice. Maybe it's been destroyed for the paint
job. Maybe it's all dinged and dented to heck and bondo'd over. Who

Certainly if you're in the market for a painted DeLorean, that's one
thing, but I don't think most buyers are.
