News of a hearse for sale on eBay advertised as Dale Earnhardt’s “last ride” was a headline story on FOXSports.com Wednesday and mentioned in Tuesday’s Hot Clicks. The ’96 Lincoln Town Car was being sold for $1.5 million by ebay user chmark1968 after he purchased it on Craigslist for $8,800 last month. Take a look at the ad now because it’s no longer up on the site:
I Heart RaceDay pointed out that the ad was taken down late on Wednesday, likely because of false advertising. The eBay ad said the hearse took Earnhardt to his final resting place on Feb. 21st, 2001. WBTV.com reported that Earnhardt’s body was not at the Feb. 21 memorial service and that it was transported to the mausoleum weeks laster. Perhaps that had something to do with the ad being pulled. Either way, it’s still a sweet ride. Check out some of the pics and specs:
Here is a description of the hearse from the ad that has been removed:
