A Ford Escort car belonging to Princess Diana was sold at a British auction for a South American museum for $73,000.
The car was given to Lady Diana by Prince Charles, as an engagement present two months before their marriage in July 1981.
Lewis Rabett, of Reeman Dansie Auctions in Colchester, southeast England, said the successful bidder was a museum in South America, where the car will now be shipped.
The car features a silver frog mascot motif mounted on the bonnet, in a copy of the emblem given to the princess by her sister Sarah, and Diana kept it when she sold the car.
Diana had stopped using this car shortly after she gave birth to Prince William.
