Bush 43’s Pickup Truck Auctioned For Charity, Nets $300,000
A 2009 Ford F-150 King Ranch 4×4 SuperCrew belonging to the previous POTUS nets six figures for a charity that serves U.S. military families:
…sold as part of the Barrett-Jackson auction house’s sale of collectible cars in Scottsdale, Arizona. The auction house did not disclose the identity of the buyer.
Bush and former first lady Laura Bush used the pickup at their ranch in Crawford, Texas, where they frequently entertain friends, family and visiting dignitaries.
“I haven’t driven on a street in many, many years, but I have been able to drive this truck on my ranch,” Bush said in a statement.
The right airbag panel on the truck was signed by the former president. The buyer also received a video showing Bush autographing the airbag panel and driving around the ranch, which is about 120 miles (190 km) from his Dallas home.
