As I was saying earlier, DeLorean Motor Co. acquired all the parts inventory from the original Ireland headquarters after they shut down in the early ’80s. They took everything from bolts to the forklift. They also continue to make new parts for whatever runs out, and stock them all here in Humble, Texas.
Gullwing doors, doors, and more doors. Cameron was telling me that his great-grandkids will be selling DeLorean doors.
Some more trademark DeLorean features. The wheels, for one.
And the rear tail lights, for another. We’re such fans of these, that you may see their likeness popping up somewhere in The Hundreds x DeLorean collection… hint hint.
Of all the parts that DeLorean did salvage, the one piece they do NOT have is the front-left panel. So far, they haven’t needed to replace any that they couldn’t fix, plus the tooling’s just not worth it.
