Man Posts Car For $500, Gets Over $220,000 For It On eBay

September 21, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – A simple eBay auction turned into a bidding frenzy when a man’s 1963 Pontiac LeMans Tempest turned out to be one of six specially made Super Duty editions.

According to Autoblog, eBay user 123ecklin got much more than he had been expecting when he put the car on sale with a starting bid of only $500.

Within the first day it became obvious that the car was worth much more than he had expected, as the truth about the car, which is believed to be the super dragster driven by Stan Antlocer which disappeared in 1963, came out.

By the end of a nine day auction the final bid came in with only a few seconds to spare, at $226,521.

It was a shocking result to the seller who hadn’t expected to get more than a few hundred dollars for the rusting classic car.
