ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Sarah Palin's hometown is auctioning an SUV she drove when she was mayor, years before she skyrocketed to fame.

The small town of Wasilla, Alaska, listed the 1999 Ford Expedition on eBay Monday with a minimum bid of $10,000. The listing's photo shows the tan SUV with a cardboard cutout of Palin in the driver's seat.

Public Works Director Archie Giddings says the hope is someone finds historic value in the vehicle because Palin drove it.

No bids had been submitted as of Wednesday afternoon. The listing expires Nov. 27 at midnight Alaska Standard Time.

Palin drove the vehicle during her second term as mayor, ending in October 2002.

She went on to become Alaska's governor until Republican presidential nominee John McCain picked Palin to be his running mate in 2008, and she later resigned her state office.
