Excelsior? Stan Lee's Favorite Benz on eBay Doesn't Hit Reserve

They say you can find anything and everything on eBay. That includes Stan Lee's favorite car.

Lee put his gray, 1987 Mercedes-Benz 420 SEL on the auction leader's Web site a week ago, looking for buyers. According to the listing, Lee purchased the car in 1991 with 48,500 miles on the odometer and drove it an estimated 3600 miles annually. The California license plate "MRVLCMX" was included, as was a promise to sign the dash board or any other part of the car for the new owner.

The auction ended today, but the $5800 price offered for the car didn't meet the reserve set by the auction lister, Junko. Calls to Junko were not returned by press time. It is unknown whether the car will be sold to the current high bidder, or if the car will be re-listed.

According to the Kelly Blue Book Web site, the car has an actual value of approximately $4425 in excellent condition.
