1981 DeLorean DMC-12 - SOLD!!

You are looking at a super cool 1981 DMC DeLorean DMC-12. It is a privately owned vehicle being sold on consignment at Stressless Auto on behalf of the owner. Consignment sales give you the best of both worlds: you get a well cared for, privately owned car with a known history as well as the ease and security of working with a very service focused, specialty dealer. 

The DeLorean is a truly timeless car!  It’s distinctive stainless steel body and sharp lines make it stand out from the crowd.  It’s starring role in the Back to the Future movies keeps it on people’s minds as an iconic car.  Everyone gets excited about the DeLorean - even people who don’t usually care about cars.

The exterior of this car is quite clean!  The front and rear bumper were repainted in the factory gray color to freshen them up a bit.  The car was just detailed and the stainless steel was conditioned properly.  This model DeLorean is the only one that allows you to open the gas door without opening the whole hood.  The front suspension was lowered before the current owner bought the car.  It is a common modification that gives it a much nicer stance.

The interior is in great shape, especially for it’s age.  The black leather seats are soft and in good condition.  The owner made a few modifications that make this car easier and more fun to use.  He replaced the stereo with a modern head unit and installed some better speakers.  He also hooked up bluetooth and a front and rear camera to make the visibility a bit better.  He replaced the 12V plug with USB ports and installed some cool mood lighting.  He swapped the steering wheel for a smaller steering wheel with the DMC logo.  He installed a keyless entry system that allows you to open the doors and trunk with the push of a button.  All the parts are included to bring it back to factory, except the stereo head unit and the suspension parts.

It is clear this DeLorean has been well cared for.  The finish is clean and shiny.  The wheels are free from curb rash.  The owner bought this car in 2012 and went through it with a fine tooth comb, replacing old hoses and belts.  He’s maintained it well and the service is up to date.  The tires have lots of tread left.  This car shows no evidence of having been wrecked or abused and we believe the mileage is original based on the condition of the car.  This car is ready to go!

This DeLorean comes with 3 binders of DMC paperwork, manuals, shop manuals, and service bulletins, the factory parts, 2 keys, a remote, an admiring crowd every time you park, and a giant smile!
