LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man whose prized sports car was stolen 42 years ago recovered the vehicle after spotting it on eBay, authorities said Sunday.
Mr. Russell recently spotted what he thought was his car on eBay and checked the vehicle identification number on the website with the one on the car’s title certificate, finding they were a match, the department said in a news release.
He has since brought it back to Texas. His hometown wasn’t immediately available.
Mr. Russell told deputies that he bought the vehicle for $3,000. It’s now valued at $23,000.
He said that “he continued his search for the vehicle, not for its monetary value, but because it had sentimental value to him and his wife,” the department said.
