George Bush’s Truck Auctioned For $300K
Who would pay $300,000 for a used Ford? Apparently at least one bidder who came away from the Barrett-Jackson auction house in Scottsdale, Ariz. as the proud owner of a 2009 Ford F-150 King Ranch 4×4 SuperCrew owned by President George W. Bush.
Bush drove the pickup on his ranch in Crawford, Texas, after he left office in 2009, before donating it to the Fisher House Foundation—a charity that provides free housing for families of military service men and women who are receiving medical treatment.
“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 winning bidder—who Barrett-Jackson declined to name—also came away with a video depicting Bush driving the truck on this ranch and autographing the passenger-side airbag panel.
