1981 DeLorean Additional Info:

The most desirable configuration: a 1981 5-speed, gray interior, grooved hood variant.
This car also has an aftermarket turbocharger. With only 33k miles, this is a very nice example of a mostly original car. needs clutch master replaced (presently working on this) and the fuel injection system checked; there was a slight leak at the distributor. Was running, but I shut it off as soon as I saw the leak. I have not delved into the fuel system beyond verifying that the tank is clean and that the car was getting fuel out of the distributor so that the future owner can decide whether they wish to keep the turbo setup, revert the car to stock, or install an alternative fuel delivery system such as EFI or a carburetor.
The clutch master is also inoperable; a replacement master is included, but the Texas heat has been prohibitive for working in the garage and installing it.
The frame is solid, but needs some attention on the rear cradle; it appears to have been scraped on something at some point. In the interest of being up-front and honest about the condition, I have not repaired it so that way prospective buyers can verify that it is not rotten. A wire brush and POR-15 treatment is the recommended course of action.
The car has an upgraded stereo with custom kicker speakers in the front foot wells and rear speakers mounted in the parcel shelf, but the majority of the interior is original. The seats, have a few cracks in the leather, but no tears. Both the original dash and binnacle are crack-free, though there is some sun fade on the dash.

The stainless on this car is in beautiful condition with no dents or prominent scratches; I would say no scratches, but the factory grain pattern was intended to hide the most minor of them. There are certainly no notable defects in the finish
I have tried to make every fault as transparent as possible so that there are no surprises.
The car has not been registered for 12 years, but was last running and driving approximately 5 years ago; a failed clutch master sidelined the car due to the elderly owner's inability to work on the car himself.
I am willing to work with international buyers and will assist in coordinating with shippers as long as advanced arrangements are made.
