1981 DeLorean DMC 12

The vehicle up for sale was a show car that recently had a tragic fire. The fire was contained in the engine compartment and was put out fairly quickly but the vehicle sustained damage during the coarse of the fire and when the fire department put the fire out. The covers that go over the engine were damaged. The back window of the car as long as the windows by the engine compartment are all broken. All the belts and hoses in the engine compartment were melted or destroyed. The area behind the seats of the car was charred or damaged. The seats were damaged by charring and or water. The car had water in the floor boards after the fire was put out by the fire department. It appears that the dash is ok but from there back will most likely need extensive repair based on your use for the car. The front of the car is in great shape. The exterior of the car is in good shape other than the rear quarter panels that sustained the damage from the fire. Also the rear of the vehicle had all the plastics including lights, bumper and trim melt from the fire. The car was rebuilt on a rebuilt/rebuildable title in Washington state it appears in around 1995. The frame was powder coated and a new engine installed along with new wiring and many other things for making this a show car. The car is currently titled in Virginia and is clear of any liens. Please feel free to ask any questions prior to bidding as all sales are final.
