5k Mile DeLorean Found While Boat Hunting!

1981 DMC DeLorean

A boat auction may seem like an unlikely place to find old cars, but if you live anywhere near Brookline, New Hampshire, the upcoming antique boat and auto auction will be worth attenting. We have featured this event before and they always have some very interesting stuff. The preview starts on May 14th and the auction begins at 1pm on the 15th. You can get more information here on woodboats.org or keep reading to view a few of the highlights.

This 1981 DMC DeLorean was found by the guy who runs woodboats.org while he was out hunting for boats for the auction. Boy, did Gary score big! This stainless steel beauty has only covered 5,000 miles and has been with the same owner since 1982. It needs a fuel pump and one of the pistons that helps open the door.

1965 MGB

The DMC may be the best “barn find” in attendance, but I found a few other lots that caught my attention too. This 1965 MGB is claimed to run good and includes wire wheels. It’s most likely been restored, but it would be a blast to take this roadster for a drive around the lake this summer!

1948 BSA M21

How about this 1948 BSA M21? I’m not sure if it’s been restored or not, but it has been stored inside and with the same owner for the past 10 years. It might be worth a look if you are into motorcycles. The auction is still accepting consignments so there will be even more stuff to choose from by next week.

1924 Chris Craft

There are a few other cars listed already that may be worth a look and of course a ton of classic boats will be on offer. I dont know a lot about boats, but this 1928 Chris Craft Triple Cockpit Runabout looks like an interesting restoration project. What do you think – see anything you’d like to drag home?

    I live about 5 miles from where they hold this yearly auction. They start advertising and putting up signs all over the state about it 6 months in advance. It’s always well attended and they also have a flea market on the auction grounds every year that you can find all type of great stuff car, boat and cycle related.

    I love the Chris, as 16 year old kids, some friends and I tried to restore a similar Gar Wood. We were way in over our heads. It had a Ford flathead V8 in it. We subsequently sold it to an ‘old’ guy, who restored it beautifully.
