Custom Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Auction Benefits Disabled Veterans

Sep 5, 2014

Cars for Troops is an effort of The MobilityWorks Foundation, a non-profit organization that offers transportation support and services to mobility-challenged individuals, their families, and support organizations throughout the United States. The Cars for Troops program furthers the organization’s mission to make the world more accessible. All proceeds from the sale of this vehicle will help deserving veterans afford wheelchair-accessible vehicles and other adaptive driving devices.

“We started The MobilityWorks Foundation to help more people benefit from an adaptive vehicle solution that enables them to get out and do what they want to do,” said Bill Koeblitz, president and CEO of MobilityWorks. “MobilityWorks is excited to partner with West Coast Customs on the Ford Raptor project to provide mobility solutions to a truly deserving group of individuals, our military veterans.”

The transformed 2014 Ford Raptor, named, “The Patriot,” features an American flag custom paint job, courtesy of West Coast Customs. This automotive masterpiece boasts a handmade custom grille, interior embroidery representing each branch of the United States military and an onboard computer provided by Bully Dog. West Coast Customs also installed a BDS four-inch lift, which gives the Raptor a higher profile, making it perfect for going off-road.

“West Coast Customs has always supported our veterans, and we are proud to be part of such an important cause like the Cars for Troops program,” said Alex Anderson, operations manager of West Coast Customs. “Being tasked with the creation of The Patriot was a tremendous privilege for us. We took the challenge very seriously and put forth our best effort to properly honor members of our military.”

Several sponsors made the custom build possible including BraunAbility, Magnaflow, Bully Dog, LM Tire & Wheel and BDS Suspension.
