CONDITION : PLEASE SEE PICTURES AND ASK QUESTIONS. A REAL PIECE OF HISTORY!TALK ABOUT'BACK TO THE FUTURE'!! OWN A RARE PIECE OF HISTORY. THESE ARE THE PROTOTYPES DEVELOPED AND MADE BY MY FATHER FOR THE DELOREAN. THESE ITEMS WERE USED TO SHOW THE EXECUTIVES AT THAT COMPANY WHAT HE COULD DO FOR THEM AND DEVELOPED ALL THE INDIVIDUAL DISPLAYS YOU SEE HERE! NEVER USED IN A VEHICLE AS CAN BE SEEN BY CONDITION OF HOLES NEVER USED TO BOLT IT TO ANY DASH.
THESE WERE IN MY FATHER'S DISPLAY CABINET IN HIS HOME OFFICE AND HE LOVED SHOWING THEM TO PEOPLE WHO CAME OVER. WHEN YOU HOLD THEM UP TO THE LIGHT, YOU CAN SEE THE LIGHTED (BACKLIT) FRAMES ON EITHER END SIDES. I HAVE NO IDEA IF THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER PANEL WORKS AS INTENDED OR EVEN COULD WORK AS INTENDED SINCE IT WAS THE PROTOTYPE TO SHOW THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTERS. MY FATHER IS NO LONGER WITH US, SO I CANNOT ASK HIM. HE PASSED ABOUT A YEAR AGO.
MY DAD WAS VERY, VERY PROUD OF THESE. THE LARGE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER DOES HAVE A CRACKED (THE TOP ONLY) ODOMETER TRIP RESET SHAFT THAT IS IN THE PHOTO. THE ODOMETER SHOWS 0 MILES AS IT WAS NEVER USED IN A VEHICLE AND A PROTOTYPE ONLY. SOME SLIGHT WEAR MARKS FROM BEING PASSED AROUND TO DELOREAN EXECUTIVES ON THE BACK AND SIDES, A SINGLE MISSING FUEL ARM AND A SLIGHT CRACK ON THE UPPER RIGHT SIDE HOLE CASING. THE OTHER ITEMS ARE AS YOU SEE THEM, SHOW SOME SLIGHT WEAR.YOU DECIDE BY LOOKING AT THE PICTURES IF THIS IS ACCEPTABLE FOR YOU. AWESOME COLLECTIBLE OR POSSIBLY TO USE IN A PROJECT DELOREAN OR ANOTHER CAR TO HAVE A ONE OF KIND DASHBOARD. VERY HARD TO COME BY ITEMS! A little about my Father who developed these DeLorean items. These are vintage items that not only belonged to my dear Father, but he was the one who developed these very 1st Prototypes, made them and they were kept proudly in his home office display cabinet. My Dad was the Chemist/Technical Director who pioneered decal placement and the HEAT TRANSFER PROCESS to adhere the decals to plastics and glass for many Fortune companies. Some of the companies he developed processes for were Coca-Cola, Disney, Lionel, UTC, Stanley, GM, Harley-Davidson and the list goes on.
He flew all over the world meeting with these companies when I was growing up and they would even come to stay at our home when on business. My Father even developed and designed the backlighting panels for the DeLorean Instrument Dash Cluster and the digital 1984 Corvette!
My Dad actually played a huge part in developing and patenting the heat transfer decal process that all these companies starting using long, long ago and is still using to this day to adhere all marks, lettering, decals, etc. To all their products My Dad, served in WWII and traveled with the Glenn Miller Band playing piano, entertaining weary troops. After being honorably discharged in 1946, he entered into College and then received (2) Masters Degrees.
He then taught Mathematics and Chemistry for East Granby High School here in CT. He left to take positions in R&D for Stanley Works, Bristol Brass and then, Electrocal. I do not have a signed COA for this item, but can supply extensive provenance with his work paperwork, hand written letter, business card, etc. My Dad was one smart guy! Sadly, this brilliant man is no longer with us and there are no grandchildren to pass these items onto.To carry on his legacy, I pass them onto you.
