As each new DeLorean was sold, the dealer was required to complete and return a "Retail Delivery Record" or "RDR" card to DeLorean Motor Company. The data from these cards were used to create the owner database for warranty and recall purposes.
Far from complete, these 1600+ remaining cards were located in the inventory of DeLorean parts acquired by DMC (Texas) in 1997. They indicate the name and address of the original purchaser, as well as the VIN, interior color and transmission type along with the date of sale and more information in some cases regarding the buyer, any trade-in, etc.
AVAILABLE FOR MANY 1981 AND SOME 1982 MODELS - NO 1983 MODELS. Check to see if your VIN is available by entering the last 5 digits here.
All proceeds from the sales go directly to the treasury of The DeLorean Museum, a nonprofit corporation. Funds from the treasury are used strictly for the acquisition of memorabilia and supplies necessary to protect and preserve the existing items in the Museum collection.
