American Robert Russell whose prized sports car was stolen 42 years ago has recovered his long-lost vehicle after spotting it on eBay.
The car enthusiast told the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department that he had never given up searching for the 1967 Austin Healy after it was stolen from his Philadelphia home in 1970.
Mr Russell checked the vehicle identification number on the website with the one on the car's title certificate, finding they were a match.
After working with Philadelphia police to resolve vehicle identification issues, the department told Russell he could pick up his car.
Although Russell bought the vehicle for $3,000 (£1927). It's now valued at $23,000 (£14,775).
