1981 DeLorean DMC-12 description

Recently featured on Bringatrailer auctions, this 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 with 20k original miles and is 5-speed manual example that was sold new in Arizona. The car remained with its original owner until 2015. Through my nearly 2 years of ownership, I've had the car almost fully restored! I've invested nearly $20,000 in professional repairs/restoration. The car runs and drives excellent now. Everything works as it should. Mechanically is it almost 100% restored, cosmetically, 80% or so. I have ALL receipts from DeLorean for the OEM parts used and the Euro shops that did the work on the car in a file. I also have the original owner's manual, a car care kit, a spare un cut OEM key, and other items. The car has a clean Carfax, clean Arizona title in my name. Reason for the sale is I'm moving across country. You can see more photos and read all the positive comments from that Bringatrailer feature online if you'd like.
Below is a list of the work completed that I have receipts for:
  • Complete valve job
  • New head gaskets
  • New engine gaskets
  • New intake gaskets
  • New water pump
  • New oil sender
  • New thermostat
  • New alternator
  • New injector seals
  • New spark plugs
  • New catalytic convertor
  • Oil, coolant, and filter change
  • New metal coolant lines
  • New radiator
  • New belts, lines, and hoses
  • New A/C line
  • Rebuilt brake calipers
  • New brake pads
  • New brake rotors
  • New brake lines
  • AC converted and recharged, along with a new line
  • New headlight switch
  • New turn signal stalk
  • New struts for hood, louvers, doors
  • Front and rear bumpers professionally refinished
  • Louvers professionally refinished
  • New tires all around
  • New OEM leather seats
  • New OEM door panels and door headliners, as well as A and B pillar trim
  • New OEM power window switches, rear defrost switch
  • New OEM Fuse and Relay upgrade kit from Delorean.com
  • New power window motor, passenger side
  • More miscellaneous parts I can't remember right now
The last few items it still needs that I ran out of time for include glove box latch, glove box insert(tray inside), fabric headliner in between doors is worn, dome light is loose, trim above windshield where doors close has wear, power door locks are finicky sometimes. Cooling fan fail warning light is on due to relay upgrade kit. There is not a problem with them, it is a symptom of the relay upgrade kit and discussed in a Delorean technicalbulletin. Most owner's pull that bulb as directed by DMC. I included the bulletin in my file.
This car gets compliments everywhere I go! I've driven it here in the 100 plus degrees and on the highway across town with no issues. All receipts included, DMC car care kit, and original owner's manual.
I have a ton more photos I can text or email. They are also on the Bringatrailer feature if you google it. You can call me anytime or text for more photos at 480-442-2919. My name is Dan.
Thank you for your time! PLEASE DON'T BID IF YOU ARE NOT SERIOUS OR DO NOT HAVE THE FUNDS AVAILABLE. I AM MOVING SOON AND NEED THIS OUT OF MY RENTAL GARAGE SOON AND CAN'T AFFORD ANY DELAYS PLEASE. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING!
