Tips for buying a used DeLorean include knowing the service history of the car and checking the quality of the paint. Verifiable records of any work done to the car in the last one to two years should be attained. The quality and quantity of repairs and upkeep determines value.
Expect to pay approximately $30,000 for a reliable, well-kept DeLorean. Cars purchased from certified DeLorean dealers come with a warranty but are more costly. Low mileage often indicates that the car has been stored and still has its original parts. Painted DeLoreans are less valuable than those in unpainted stainless steel. The cars were not factory-painted, and close inspection of the paint quality is recommended.
