JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - An auto dealership in Edina, Minn., is selling a car once owned by an infamous North Dakota tax protester.

The Jamestown Sun says Gordon Kahl owned the 1951 Chevrolet two-door sedan from 1957 to 1983.

Kahl was involved in a shootout near Medina on Feb. 13, 1983, that killed a U.S. marshal and deputy marshal. Kahl stole a police car and fled the scene, eluding capture for four months before being killed in a shootout at an Arkansas farmhouse where he was hiding.

The 1951 Chevy played no part in the events but was confiscated as evidence and held by the federal government until 2006, when it was auctioned. The buyer later sold it to Clearview Automobiles in Edina.

Dealership owner Conan Stanton says the car is listed at $15,000.
