Owner Finds Stolen Car on eBay 42 Years after Theft
text size: A- A+
The car was stolen from his Philly home in 1970. It has been bought recently and Russel found it was missing when he came back from the second date with the woman that is now his wife.
During all these years, he has been randomly checking out eBay and a few weeks ago he spotted his car on eBay Motors in California. He immediately turned to the dealership that was offering it, as well as to the authorities for help.
Subsequently, the Los Angeles Police Department reactivated his file and the car was impounded. The Austin Healey, which was bought for $3000 (EUR2,450 ) back then, is now worth $23,000 (EUR18,750).
