eBay Find of the Day: Barack Obama's 2005 Chrysler 300C
Posted Jan 25th 2012 11:01AM
History has yet to voice its opinion on the legacy of U.S. President Barack Obama, but one enterprising eBay seller is already looking to cash in on one very big piece of Obama memorabilia. A 2005 Chrysler 300C that allegedly belonged to the Commander In Chief (back when he was an Illinois senator) has hit eBay Motors.
As you may recall, Obama sent the big V8 sedan packing in favour of a Ford Escape Hybrid when he began his campaign for the presidency. The 300C currently has 20,800 miles (33,280 km). Obama is said to have put 19,000 (30,400km) of those on the clock himself between 2004 and 2007. With so few miles and a healthy Hemi 5.7-litre V8 under the hood, this is likely the nicest 300C you'll ever lay eyes on, but the buyer wants a pretty penny for the machine too.
Right now, the vehicle has a starting bid of US$1 million. Not surprisingly, even though the seller says he's got the paperwork to prove the vehicle's provenance, no one has stepped up with the coin. As of the time of writing, the auction has less than a day left on the clock. Head over to eBay Motors to have a look at the auction for yourself.
