A pair of DeLoreans hit the auction block with low miles and consecutive VINs

A DeLorean DMC-12 is a rare car. The total estimated production run is 8,975 vehicles, which isn’t small but it’s also not a huge amount. This means coming across one for sale isn’t that common an occurrence. What about coming across two for sale? And what about if both examples have crazy low mileage. Now let’s say their assembly line siblings because the two cars I’m talking about also have sequential VINs.

Decades back, these two DMC-12 steel coupes were sold at an auction for dealers. The cars were never registered and titled, and into storage, they went. One car has 1,623 miles on its odometer while the other has just 14. Now both are being sold together in an auction listing over on Hemmings.

Oddly, the lower-mileage example is less complete than the one with 1,623 miles. It’s missing some interior trim and was intended to be used as a parts car at one point. Otherwise, both cars appear in strong shape on the outside and the original running gear is there for both as well.

It will be interesting to see where the final hammer lands on this one. At the time of this writing, the top bid is $11,000 and there are still 14 days of bidding to go.

    I’d guess final bidding will be in the $55-60k range (surprised this isn’t on BaT), pretty easily. I very much wanted a DeLorean in high school (while they were still reasonably cheap), but they’re a lot more appealing as an attainable novelty than a higher priced bit of kitsch. I also don’t know how many cocaine jokes or poorly recited Back to the Future lines I could deal with at every fillup. Then again, were I dead set on a PRV-powered rear-engined 80’s sports car built from weird materials, an Alpine A610 would be a little cheaper (and more likely turbo’d!).

      You sum it up well, but there’s a lot that is just right with the DeLorean. I absolutely adore the stainless steel look and the straight panels that come with it, and the turbine wheels are gorgeous, too.

        Absolutely agreed, but then my 1:18 scale model does a fine job of giving me what I need from the DeLorean experience. Maybe if I was a little more driven, I could make it so it’d do the awesome whooshing noise when the doors are open, but past that I’m good.
