eBay find: DeLorean sketches

John Z. DeLorean began his automotive career in 1947 when he worked part time at Chrysler while in college. From there, he rose fairly quickly in Detroit and after securing the vice president position of car and truck production for GM, DeLorean quit and formed DeLorean Motor Company.

Before DMC went belly-up in 1982, it had produced 9,000 copies of its iconic stainless-steel exotic.

But sometime before that, DeLorean, ever the dreamer, penned plans for the next DMC product: the Sedan. His 1980 notes and drawings about that future product, as well as several magazine clippings from that era could be yours if you're the winning bidder of this eBay listing.

From the description, there is even a Telex from Giorgetto Giugiaro (designer of the original DMC two-door exotic) to DeLorean.

Auction ends Tuesday. Let us know if you win.
