Dale Earnhardt Hearse On eBay

An eBay user in North Carolina claims to be selling Dale Earnhardt’s last ride – the hearse used during his funeral in 2001. The seller, who is only identified as “chmark1968,” has set an opening bid of $1.5 million for the 1996 Lincoln Town Car hearse, which

“took Mr. Earnhardt from a Huntersville, N.C., funeral home to his final resting place,” according to the original listing. Earnhardt died after his No. 3 car slammed into a wall at 160 miles per hour during the last lap of the Daytona 500 in 2001. Earlier this year, Bill McKeithan, a collector in North Carolina, said he bought the hearse last year and then sold it during the Daytona 500 last month, the 10th anniversary of Earnhardt’s death. McKeithan got $8,800 but soon regretted his decision after considering its potential worth. As of yesterday morning, the gunmetal gray hearse had received no bids and the seller relisted it, removing Earnhardt’s name from the description. Now the listing (Item number: 160557179358) states: “This hearse over the years has serviced many funerals including a very famous NASCAR Driver in 2001.”
