Sorella Stoute buys 1962 Austin Healey Sprite on eBay.

Sorella Stoute’s father got the news when he received notice from eBay, congratulating him on his purchase of a gently used, 1962 Austin Healey Sprite, for just over $200.

“She decided I think to open the eBay app, and started clicking around and one thing led to another and now we own a car,” Paul Stoute said.

The couple decided to keep the car. Sorella’s dad planned to restore it as a gift to Sorella on her 16th birthday.

“I’m just glad she didn’t buy the $38,000 Porsche I was also looking at,” Stoute said.
