Bad bits...............

Cosmetically, This is a car that I and previous owners have used (best way of looking after them)
Over the past 35 years there have been a couple of little dings inflicted (I will post pic) and the dash top has a age related crack in it and the aircon, whilst all complete and working, needs regassing.
That's about it!

IMO, this is one of the best and tested DMC Delorean's available in this price range........

Last year I drove it down to Northern Italy without any issues. Down the fast Autobahns of Germany, Over the high passes of the Swiss Alps, in the hot (35*C) traffic jams of Milan or racing through the historic centre of Verona. Brilliant times!

It is priced to sell. £28,950.
