SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A 106-year-old World War II veteran’s prized Cadillac that once belonged to actress Rita Hayworth has been found, and it appears to be in good shape.
The 1956 Cadillac was stolen on Friday and was found Monday parked at the Sacramento Police Department headquarters. Police say the suspect remains at large and that the case remains active.

The car is a unique 1956 “Bermuda Blue” Cadillac El Dorado now owned by World War II veteran Curly Bunfill. It has appeared in numerous parades and car shows over the years – and even grand marshaled the Fourth of July parade.
Bunfill, who is now 106-years-old, earned three purple hearts in WWII and went on to work as a stuntman in Hollywood. Fittingly, the late great pin-up Rita Hayworth gave Bunfill the car.
