With the original MSRP of $26,000 in 1981, these cars were surely for the enthusiast and the belief that John C. Delorean was building a truly remarkable car and certainly in 1981 when lets face it, design of cars were quite boring. People flocked to purchase the DMC-12 even though the cost was twice of what the original price was going to be. The body design by Italians, it's powered by the French and built by the Irish. Sounds like a perfect combination to me. Gullwing doors, un-painted stainless steel bodies and only two options offered was a recipe for success. These cars have been sought after for some time and have had a cult following for a long time with the help of movie stardom.
The 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 offered here was purchased new at Oliver Imported Cars, Inc. of Vallejo, CA.
