(Newser) – The decision by the Nevada Parole Board to release OJ Simpson might also be good news for his former sports agent, reports TMZ. That's because the hearing has renewed interest in the other Simpson criminal case, and Mike Gilbert just happens to own the Ford Bronco that led police on perhaps the famous police chase in history. The site reports that Gilbert is willing to sell the vehicle, and it thinks he can get somewhere in the $750,000-to-$1 million range.

The SUV is currently sitting in the Alcatraz East Crime Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. It was once owned by Simpson friend Al Cowlings, who drove it with Simpson inside during the infamous low-speed chase in 1994. As CBS Sports explains, Simpson himself also owned a white Ford Bronco, which also figured in the murder case. It was parked in front of his mansion, and police impounded it when they found blood inside. That Bronco, however, was later destroyed. (Ford is actually bringing back the model.)
