The Historic Vehicle Association (HVA) has announced the newest car to hitch its National Historic Vehicle Register, an inventory and collection of documentation of historically significant automobiles. which car is that the instantly recognizable DeLorean DMC-12 time machine from the well-known sci-fi movie “Back to the Future”.
The organization notes that the car was restored from 2012 to 2013, and therefore the restoration was done by a team of fans led by the movie’s author, Bob Gale. Being that it is a car from the primary film, it lacks the “Mr. Fusion” fuel tank from the second movie or the steel wheels and whitewall tires from the third. it’s a typical Peugeot-Renault-Volvo V6 making 130 horsepower, and this one features a manual transmission, a bit like you will see within the movie.
The car is owned by Universal Studios and is on permanent loan to the Petersen Museum in l. a. . So you’ll see it there, but if you cannot make it to California, the car is going to be on display at the National Mall in Washington D.C. this September as a neighborhood of the HVA’s Cars at the Capital program.
The DeLorean is that the 29th car to hitch the National Historic Vehicle Register. Another car is going to be added this year that the HVA hasn’t revealed.
The DeLorean is in excellent company with the first Bullitt Mustang, the 1911 Marmon Wasp (the first car to win the Indy 500), and Bruce Meyers’ original Manx beach buggy, among many others. you’ll see the entire list at this link.
