We are Euclid Car Co at 1240 E. 286th St., Euclid, OH 44132, Fax No. 216-417-5301.Thank you for looking at our vehicle. You will need a Paypal account to bid. Our hours of operation and pickup times are Mon - Fri from 9AM to 5PM.Please do not message us through eBay, only by our phone number. We do not read texts. Phone calls only. If for some reason we don't answer the phone, leave a message and we promise to call you back as soon as possible. If you have any questions about the vehicle, call Stan at 216-598-7011. If you win the vehicle, please send a $500 deposit to our Paypal account within 12 hours. Full payment due in 3 days. eBay is letting anybody bid, regardless of your past history. If you as a buyer have not bought at least 3 items in the last 3 months, you need to call us before you bid or your bid will be immediately removed.
We are trying to be fair to all buyers and we do not want non paying bidders bidding up cars that an honest person wants to buy, and being bid up by a person who is playing a game with our account and thousands of other accounts in this country. We want to be fair and square to all real potential bidders. Non paying buyers will be reported to eBay. We hope not to have any.Balance is to be paid by check, cash orwire transfer only. Please send us your name and phone number directly through eBay so we can work out the paperwork and delivery afterdeposit has been made. We charge $150 for paperwork and title transfer and 45 daytags are available for $25.

We sell all cars as-is, which means the buyer isresponsible for any and all repairs, according to the Ohio Buyer’s Guide (includes body, mechanical, frame and interior). We do our best to describe all vehicles as accurately as possible, but keep in mind that opinions may differ and that it’sthe buyer’s responsibility to inspect the car before bidding. We advise all bidders to get a third party to check out the vehicle if they can’t make it out themselves to ensure their complete satisfaction. This must be done before bidding. When you view the pictures of the vehicle, make sure you look at them on a large screen to ensure that you can see all attributes of the car.

If the car starts and runs onto the truck, but it does not start at arrival, that is the buyer’s responsibility (cars may be damaged on a long, bouncy trip). Once the car is paid for, all buyers should put insurance on the vehicle because they now own it. We will work with your shipper or you can call Mike, our shipper, for a rate at 781-763-7447 Ext. 208. We leave all buyers positive feedback. All sales are final. All deposits are non-refundable, so please make sure you know exactly what you're buying before you bid. Our shipper will get the car to you within 4 days to 2 weeks at a fair price. If you'd like to call him for a price, that would be fine.

All cars left on our lot after 30 days will be charged $18 a day and we hope we never have to collect a dime. But we don't have enough space to store everyone's car after they're paid for. It's the buyer's responsibility to pick up their car that they just purchased. Please remember we are on the buyer's side. Please only bid if you are a real bidder who wants to purchase the vehicle, and again, if you haven't purchased 3 items over the last 3 months we will remove your bid. If you're a zero bidder and you bid at the last second just before the auction ends, the vehicle will be offered to the bidder before you and you will not end up with the vehicle, so you need to call us.

Thank you for looking at my 1981 DeLorean 2-door. This is a great car and I owned it for 5 years. It has 31K actual miles and it runs well. The way the stainless steel body looks is exactly the way you'd like to see one when you're considering buying one, because this vehicle is original and really has the look. Just to mention some of the parts that are new over the last 5 years:


-Complete braking system (including master cylinder)

-Complete clutch

-Total tuneup including fuel distributor


-Starter (w bendix)

-Front end parts

All panels underneath the vehicle were removed and the entire frame was sandblasted and recoated, done 5 years ago and done to DeLorean specs.We've done interior work on the car, which is why the headliner and doors aren't falling in, because the lining is all new. I actually spent on the car, total restoration, $18,000. It does seem like a lot, but when you start adding in all the little things, including shocks for the doors, hood and trunk, fuel pump, and so many more things to go on and on, just about everything in the car has been gone through and replaced because it spent more time sitting than driving. That's why it only has 31K miles. In my opinion, you could get in this car, drive it and feel good about it. What it still will need is:

-Driver's power window (sometimes works, sometimes doesn't)

-Passenger window doesn't work at all (someone told me they take a GM motor to run power windows and they're $40-$50 each), and I never tried getting one

The heat works but I'd also like to mention there's a minor oil leak that I already have the gasket for if the new owner wants to put it in. Its a 4-5 hour labor fix depending on what your mechanic charges per hour, unless you're a DeLorean enthusiast that does your own work, then it won't cost you anything but a little time to fix it.

The brakes and front end are perfect and so is the clutch. If you look at some of the other DeLoreans for sale online on eBay, AutoTrader, Carsforsale, a lot of the DeLoreans are the same ones. There's probably only about 10 DeLoreans for sale in the entire country, and I don't even really want to include the ones that were painted. We think our DeLorean is one of the nicer ones that will currently be on the market for 7 days and be sold to the last highest bidder when the sale is over. One lucky person is going to get themselves one really nice Christmas present!
