The Los Angeles Times ( http://lat.ms/YDiMOJ) says the cherry-red 1989 convertible, with 67 miles on the odometer, was won Sunday on eBay by Mike Robertson, a Newport Beach advertising executive. It's to be delivered Monday.
Police recovered the Corvette in September in a San Diego self-storage unit after the suspected thief stopped paying the monthly fee. He'd paid out about $70,000 over the years. Authorities say he was cooperative and didn't charge him.
The car was sold by the insurer and a wholesaler posted it on eBay.
The final price, with delivery fee, was $39,471. That's the manufacturer's suggested retail price posted on the original windshield sticker.
