(CNN) - A Texas man has been reunited with his stolen car -- 40 years later.
Robert Russell had his 1967 Austin Healey stolen in Philadelphia in 1970.
After years of searching, in May, he found the stolen car being sold on e-Bay from someone in East LA.
Amazingly, Russell still had the certificate of title with the car's VIN number.
Russell says he paid $3,000 for the car -- now it's worth around $23,000.
