A Palin SUV was recently sold for a hefty $10,300 on eBay, and while not many people would be willing to fork over that much money for an old car used by Sarah Palin, one admirer of the political lady was ready and willing to pay such a price. The Ford Expedition was initially just hoping to be sold for $10,000, but a fan was open to paying that and more for the used vehicle, UPI reports this Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013.

The Sarah Palin SUV is being sold by Verne Rupright, the Wasilla Mayor. It is a 1999 Ford Expedition — the very same car that Palin used while in her tenure as the mayor — and was put up for a minimum of $10,000 for bidding on eBay.

There weren’t many initial bidders for the tan SUV at first, but four buyers had put forth some offer prior to the end of last month. And according to the public works director of Wasilla, this dubbed mayor-mobile — aka the Palin SUV — was sold to a mystery woman hailing from Fairbanks, sold at a cool $10,300.

The public works director called the eBay car buyer a “Palin admirer” who was a “real fan of the political lady.”

“This was her mayor-mobile,” Rupright said last month. “Sarah had that for the rest of the time she was mayor, so we look at it this way. When you stop and think of who drove that, … why not get the biggest bang for the dollar for the city?"

There has been quite a stir from some critics surrounding the sale as well.
