UPDATE: Not surprisingly, President Obama's former daily driver failed to sell on eBay Motors with a starting bid of $1 million. The owner reportedly wants to list the car again closer to the presidential election this fall, and may lower the price as well as give some of the proceeds to charity.

History has yet to voice its opinion on the legacy of 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 favor of a Ford Escape Hybrid when he began his campaign for the presidency. The 300C currently has 20,800 miles. Obama is said to have put 19,000 of those on the clock himself between 2004 and 2007. With so few miles and a healthy 5.7-liter 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.

Right now, the vehicle has a starting bid of $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.

      President or not, it's still just a Chrysler 300C. $1M is over-valued!

      LOL - So what? There are many vehicles out there which were owned by celebrities, important officials, etc. The value doesn't increase because it was previously owned by them. He'll get KBB, or NADA Retail, (if he's lucky)!

      He should keep it, he'll need a job after the election. Being a cab driver should be right up his alley.

      If your actually crazy enough to buy this car, you shouldn't be able to legally operate a motor vehicle!

      Ridiculous. He'd be lucky to get half of his asking price. Furthermore, it would have been a better idea on the seller's part to make this news public before Barrett-Jackson. Many of those cars sold for way less money, and in my opinion, were much more desirable.

        I agree – throwing this at Barrett-Jackson (with also the help of perhaps a professional appraiser) would have definitely worth the time and effort, instead of making a fool of yourself by putting a Chrysler 300C on eBay for a comical 1 million dollars – regardless of who owned it 5 years ago.

      I am shocked! I thought there were several wealthy liberals out there would would grab this up. Maybe one of the Hollywood elite. It seems a small price to pay for a souvenir of their Dear leader.

      I'll bid $50 and give free tickets and a sledge hammer to the 9% unemployed, so they can have something to look forward to.
