Stolen ‘Pulp Fiction’ Car Found 19 Years Later [Video]

Remember that sweet, red 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu that John Travolta drove in the film Pulp Fiction?

That was director Quentin Tarantino’s car, which was ultimately stolen during the final stages of the film’s production.

The car was recovered last April, but the man who unknowingly purchased and restored the stolen car has come forward to tell his side of the story.

Bill Hemenez of San Leandro, Calif., purchased the classic 1964 Chevy Malibu from a collector over 12 years ago and has spent over $35,000 restoring the classic car.

Hemenez had no idea the car was stolen, has never seen Pulp Fiction, and had no idea who Tarantino even is!

Investigators said the car had been stolen from outside of Tarantino’s home in 1994 and the thieves switched VIN numbers with another ’64 Malibu.

After questioning Hemenez, the car was returned to Tarantino.

Despite the years of effort, time and money spent on the car, Hemenez isn’t bitter about losing the car.

He’s just happy it’s not going to the crusher!
