RE: [DML] VIN 961 up for sale

Matt was kind enough to allow me to do a few runs in his car at the Houston
Raceway in 2003.  I thought the Camaro muffler sounded amazing (is it still
fitted to the car?)!  It was one of the best DeLoreans I have ever driven
and I still have the footage if any prospective buyers want to see it.


Kind regards,

Chris Hawes 

Vin 5255

Hello fellow DMLers,

I am offering VIN 961 up for sale. I will be posting pics in the 
Photos section under "961 photos". 

1981 DeLorean DMC-12
VIN digits: xxx00961 
Manufactured April 1981
Black interior / 5-speed manual transmission 

I have the Carfax information as of purchase in 2002 if anyone would 
like a copy. It was first titled in Dallas, Tx (1981). Second in 
Wichita, KS (1986). Third to myself in Arkansas City, KS (2002).

Purchased with 12,275 miles. Current odometer reads 16,370 miles.

It has always been garaged and well maintained. Has been serviced by 
DMC Texas in 2003 plus parts installed from all vendors over past 6 
years. Extensive restoration includes...

Electrical parts replacement and updates including:
Relays, alternator, battery, battery cutoff switch
Front End Frame recall completed
Fuel system rebuilt from pump to distributor
Brake system rebuilt by DMC Texas 2003
Trailing arm bolts replaced DMC Texas 2003
Parking brake system repaired - driver rear pad assy replaced
Passenger window motor replaced
Interior is black leather, clean, dash is in good condition, not 
cracked - all original. Includes black DMC floor mats

Numerous other items have been updated or replaced
AC Idler pulleys and assembly replaced

List of needs: 
Will need radio and speakers replaced - stock deck almost dead
Will need passenger door weatherstripping / air hiss at highway speeds
Will need steering column bushing replaced (have part)

Some spare parts and manuals may be negotiated in sale - fuel filter, 
wiper blades, headlight replacements, relays, etc.
Parts manual, Workshop manual, Technical manual, and all my receipts 
and records will be passed on to buyer

I am willing to deliver in the 48 contiguous states by personal truck 
and trailer with an agreed charge per mile to recoup cost of gas and 
time. This can be negotiated prior to delivery by contract.

Asking $25,000 / O.B.O.

VIN 961 has always ran strong and has had no major mechanical 
failures on me. Ran 2003 DMC Open House drag track 18 times in 
succession without overheating or any noticeable problems.

Please contact me by phone 620-441-9788 or email HYPERLINK
for any information or questions you may have. If anyone is in the 
Kansas/Oklahoma area I would be more than happy to let you take it 
for a test drive.
