It looks an excellent conversion, in some ways neater than the factory authorised one's.

I suspect it's either a Chris N one, or a very skilled amateur mechanic.  The speedo hasn't been done, which is a shame as its not a big job, nor the removal of the carbon canister and certain other bits in the engine bay.  On the other hand, the slotted trim around the wiper base looks much better than factory ones.

It is a big job to convert one to RHD, so yet another case of a falsely low estimate.......I M O Wink 

....£40-60 would be my guess, and NO, I'm definitely not interested in buying it. Exclamation

Imported in 1990 and the conversion was done by the owner/ex club member Alan Richardson in the Midlands.

Ahhhh, now I know which car it is...the chap is a perfectionist and has been working on this car for about a decade.

The Body tub that Chris W referred to is very special.....It belonged to GKN who made all of the Chassis....and every single chassis made by GKN had that tub 'trial fitted' to make sure it did fit!  It was left discarded for years in the corner of a car park, with local kids playing on it and eventually liberated by Alan, who has kept it safe ever since.

If there ever is a UK / NI Delorean Museum, that body tub ought to be in it! Rolleyes
