Did you know that only one of two DeLorean prototypes still exist today? Prototype 1 was sold for $37,000 at a bankruptcy auction in 1984 and remained in a private collection until 2005 when it was sold to the owner of DeLorean Motor Company of Florida (DMCFL) where it received a complete restoration.

Besides DMCFL, there’s another company based in Texas using the “DeLorean Motor Company” name that actually builds new cars at its suburban Humble, Texas location from new old stock (NOS) parts, original equipment manufacturer (OEM), and reproduction parts on a “made to order” basis using existing vehicle identification number (VIN) plates.
