Delorean doors are a distinctive feature
Of all the great features of a DeLorean, including its sleek design, wedge-shaped front and back, quartz headlights and shiny, stainless steel exterior, DeLorean doors are the most distinctive. Yes, you can find a sports car with all of the features mentioned above, but can you really match those gull-winged doors from which Marty MacFly and Doc Brown emerged 30 years earlier in Back to the Future? Delorean doors truly make a DeLorean what it is, and they have yet to be imitated successfully by other models.
An amazing thing about DeLorean doors is that they would seem to require a lot of room. However, they only need 12” of run off space to open, and are much more space-efficient that many other types of cars. The DeLorean doors can be raised and lowered with bars. One of the issues with the DeLorean doors is that they would close well, but were difficult to open on an incline. This problem was remedied with the help of striker pins, which are metal pieces with a wedge groove, which helps the doors close well, even on an incline.
DeLorean doors open and close with the help of a Torsian bar which was state-of-the-art when the car first came out in 1976 and became famous in 1982. These features truly gave DeLorean doors a futuristic feel, which probably inspired the creators of Back to the Future to feature this car as a vehicle for time travel. For those who want to purchase replacement DeLorean doors, they can be found on the internet, but installing DeLorean doors onto a regular car requires tremendous effort and a complete overhaul. However, replacing doors on an existing DeLorean can be simple for the car buff or a mechanic. Your DeLorean doors can be replaced by a professional for a small fee.
