stainless steel hard top

....slightly off topic but as both vehicles have steel chassis and rust free
body panels I thought I'd let you all know that a deLorean has just pulled
up at my neighbour's house down the road. It has NO paint on the bodywork at
all and the lustre of a Franke kitchen sink. I never thought I'd ever see
one of those things. Y reg (1981 or 2 ??). It is actually quite handsome but
unfortunately gull winged.

None of them did have any paint on them.
Quite a nice looking car in the flesh, if ageing a bit, a lot smaller in the
metal than it looks in photos.

One of the weirdest experiences I've ever had was sitting in someone's
lounge early in the morning across the valley from the just-closed
DeLorean plant (Dunmurray?). As the sun rose we were dazzled by the
reflection from the serried ranks of stainless steel bonnets, all parked
in neat rows.

Shame the plug was pulled, although I believe Mr. D. was alleged to have
pocketed rather more than the government intended...

Regards,

The last twenty of them were sold at the nearby BCA Car Auctions. They
looked very good to me. I took a day off sick to see them and the place was
full of TV cameras - just my luck.

Always had a fancy for one of those, never actually seen one in the
metal.
2 litre volvo engines weren't they?
wonder if you'd get a V8 in one, or a 6cyl Jag engine.

They started out with a volvo 4 cylinder, but moved to a V6 in the second
half-ish of production. not sure were the V6 was sourced from, may have been
volvo aswell.

i managed to touch one at a car museum in Paraparaumu, just North of
Wellington NZ. Felt very privileged. made all my Back to the Future fanatic
friends really jealous.

Sam.

Don't think so, from what I recall there was hardly room for the one they intended
putting in.

Re: stainless steel hard top

I think it was a Renault/Volvo V8 that was fitted but it was not as powerful
as required to make the heavy stainless steel body move in the same way as
it looked.

The fusion reactor in the movie certainly made it move faster though

Take care
