1981 DELOREAN DMC-12 (AUTO)

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING - JAMES SADLIER MAN­AG­ING ED­I­TOR

WHY I LOVE IT Live out your Back to the Fu­ture dream, without the flux ca­pac­i­tor! There is so much to love about this par­tic­u­lar DMC-12. It is a £30k car with £20k restora­tion in­vested into it by mar­que spe­cial­ist PJ Grady and has plenty of his­tory. It has been im­ported from the USA and then lov­ingly looked af­ter by a fam­ily for the last 15 years while be­ing dry-stored in a de­hu­mid­i­fied garage to pre­serve its newly re­stored state. It was in good con­di­tion when brought into the UK, but the cur­rent owner wanted to get it back to fac­to­rynew stan­dard. DeLorean prices have sta­bilised around the £25-30k mark over the last few years and that is for the well-used ex­am­ples. If my pocket was well-fur­nished with many pounds then this would have my auc­tion-pad­dle arm fly­ing high. A bit of Van Halen in the tape player and you’re good to go!

ES­TI­MATE £25-30k
