The Columbus Dispatch found an older title to former Ohio State linebacker Thaddeus Gibson’s 2007 Chrysler 300C, showing he in fact paid $13,700 for the car, not zero dollars. So, everything was above board, right? “Not so fast, my friend.”
The 300C is the high-end version of the Chrysler 300 sedan. New, that car costs around $40,000. He bought a 2007 model with 13,760 miles for $13,700 in June 2007. The Blue Book value for that car in excellent condition, with that mileage, in 2011 in Columbus is $24,275. He bought it four years ago.
Just speculating, but that probably wasn’t a price the dealership offered to the general public. Here’s a 2006 model with 52,000 miles you can buy for $19,200.
