...You don't see a Red DeLorean everyday! That's because they're aren't many, and even fewer that were painted by the delivering dealer, have less than 2, 000 original miles, and have all the supporting original documentation, including the original one owner Georgia title, original window sticker, original owners manual, original sales brochure, and original drive out tag. These cars are becoming increasingly collectible and are almost impossible to find with this low milage and all the paperwork even near this asking price.
The body design of the DMC-12 was a product of Giorgetto Giugiaro of Ital Design and is paneled in brushed SS304 Stainless Steel. Except for three cars plated in 24-Carat Gold, All DMC-12s left the factory without paint or clearcoat. This is one of the very rare stainless steel body and plastic bumper DeLoreans that was painted by the selling dealer for promotional purposes. That dealer was Hub Ford of Atlanta, GA, who proudly displayed the car in their showroom after painting it. On August 4, 1987, the first owner, James Tolleson (also from Atlanta) purchased the car with 232 miles on the clock. The car was then driven occasionally for the next twenty years but mainly remained the staple of a private collection. With just 1, 641 miles recorded in 2013, the owner did a comprehensive restoration is excess of $20, 000. All parts and components were purchased from DeLorean Motor Company in Huble, TX. Everything was overhauled at no expense spared.
Today, the car has 1, 671 actual miles and comes from our local clients esteemed collection. The original 2.8L V6 fires on command and the car runs strong. Power is transferred smoothly through the preferred 5-speed gearbox. All the original documentation has been preserved, which has been cataloged on a professional poster highlighting the car's history. This is an awesome vehicle and worthy of any enthusiasts garage. This is an investment car that will surely gain value over time. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors.
