This 1981 DeLorean is one of approximately just 156 cars built with a grey interior, manual transmission and gas-flap hood which makes it one of the most rare combinations built - only 1.7% of all DeLoreans built came with these three build characteristics. This car also features the rare and desireable, wide-black dealer option stripe package. Originally sold to a man in Austin, Texas from Marcus Jones Buick/DeLorean in Houston, Texas, the car has lived it's entire life in Texas.
