Child buys car on eBay, eBay buys car for child

PORTLAND, Ore. -- An Oregon toddler who accidentally bought a car on eBay now has a new set of wheels - but this vehicle is more her size.

14-month-old Sorella Stoute clicked the wrong buttons on her dad's smart phone and purchased a broken-down 1962 Austin Healey Sprite.

Her dad decided to keep the car and fix it up.

The story hit the web and went viral.

The folks at eBay saw the story too and decided Sorella needed a car she could drive right now.

"The guys over at eBay motors wanted her to have something that she could drive in the meantime while I take the time to fix it up so they sent us this,” said Paul Stoute.

The family has received eBay gift cards and donations to help restore the old roadster.

Her dad plans to get the car ready for Sorella's 16th birthday or high school graduation.
