George W. Bush wasn’t the most popular U.S. president of all time, but we think he was one of the coolest. Sure, he was a bit trigger happy – after all, he’s Texan – but deep inside he is a good guy and here’s why: a Ford F-150 owned by George W. will soon be auctioned for charity.
All the proceeds from selling this 2009 Ford F-150 King Ranch 4×4 SuperCrew will be donated to Fisher House Foundation who supports families of America’s wounded military men. This truck is powered by a 310 horsepower 5.4 liter V8 engine, has a two-tone cream and white exterior, big chrome wheels, and brown leather interior. It is also fully loaded with all the options available at the time. Not that any of it matters of course, because you buy this car for its history.
The truck gos under the hammer at Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, on January 19, 2013.
“With the help of former President Bush and the Fisher House Foundation, Barrett-Jackson is excited to be a part of this incredible sale,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “Driven by a President and now benefiting veterans, this truck is an exceptional piece of Americana that would make any collector proud.”
