American History on Four Wheels for Sale

Apr 4, 2017

Barrett-Jackson is planning to offer a diverse collection of custom and rare collector vehicles during its 15th Annual Palm Beach Auction set for April 6-8 at the South Florida Fairgrounds in Palm Beach, Florida.

The auction will feature five unique vehicles that will cross the block to benefit charitable causes across the nation.

“To date, Barrett-Jackson has helped raise over $93 million in support of charities whose influence reaches around the world,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson.

President George W. Bush’s 2009 Ford F-150 King Ranch Super Crew Pickup will be on sale, with all proceeds benefiting the Community Foundation of Cleveland and Bradley County, Tennessee to support the Higher Calling Kids Wrestling Club. The truck was used at Bush’s Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford, Texas, shortly after he left the White house in 2009. With a 5.4-liter V8 engine with automatic transmission, commanding 310 horsepower, the truck features a King Ranch premium leather interior.

Former President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush used the truck to work around their ranch and to entertain friends, family and dignitaries visiting their Crawford property. The original title to the truck reflects Bush’s signature as its first owner, and that title will be transferred to the buyer by the current owner. Additionally, the right airbag panel features Bush’s signature.

Meanwhile, The winning bidder of Lot No. 3002 will receive the rights to the first retail production of the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 LE, with 100 percent of the hammer proceeds benefiting United Way. The ZL1 LE features a 650-horsepower, supercharged LT4 engine backed by a six-speed manual transmission, rounding out an incredible performance package.

Also of note is the 1996 Ford Mustang, designed and fabricated by students at the Jordan Vocational High School in Columbus, Georgia, which won the national 2016 Quaker State Best in Class Competition with the vehicle. The Mustang vehicle is powered by a 3.8-liter engine with automatic transmission and sports a new suspension and more. Encompassing the spirit and enthusiasm of the students who built it, the car’s hammer price will go to Jordan Vocational High School, according to Barrett-Jackson.

A 2007 Ford Mustang GT Custom Fastback-”the sixth of only 50 built by Sanderson Ford-”also headed to auction will benefit The Darrell Gwynn Chapter of the Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis.

Sporting only 58,000 original miles, a 1969 International Travelall will cross the block in support of the Boy Scouts of America. Unique in the market and ahead of its time, this Travelall is powered by the optional V8 engine.

The 15th Annual Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction will be broadcast on Discovery, Velocity and Velocity Canada during the three-day auction.
