The car has spent time in Beverly Hills, California, so it should be rust-free, and has had two other owners, including Boulevard Auto Sales, which put the vehicle on eBay.
"I figure some husband could be a big hero if he bought this vehicle for his wife since it belonged to Oprah," Scarincio said.
