Auction winner finds surprise in trunk of his prize

PIERCE, Neb. (KTIV) -

For car lovers, there were so many treasured cars and rare finds at the auction.

Justin Mayhew may have gotten the best surprise and the best deal.

He bought a '63 Corvair for $400.

But when he pried open the trunk of his new purchase, his deal got even sweeter.

The trunk was loaded with brand new parts and tools still wrapped in their original packaging.

"Yeah, that's great.  I wasn't expecting it.  I thought the trunk was all rusted out and we got some tools and we got the trunk open and we found all this cool stuff in there," Justin Mayhew of Alliance, Nebraska said.

One mechanic on site told us he guessed the tools were worth around $4,000.
