Bald Eagle’s soaring and amber waves of grain, it doesn’t get more American than this. Heading to the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona on January 19th is a 2009 Ford F-150 King Ranch 4×4 SuperCrew owned by former President of the United States, George W. Bush. ‘MERICA!

All proceeds from the sale of the F-150 will head to the Fisher House Foundation, a program dedicated to assisting the families of America’s military. The F-150 has been used by Bush since he left the White House in 2009 around the family’s ranch, entertain friends, family, and dignitaries, and has even given tours of their Crawford property.

Powered by a 5.4-liter, V8 with 310 hp the Ford F-150 has a towing capacity of 11,200 pounds and features King Ranch premium leather inside. The truck has only had one owner – George W. Bush – and the title is in the former President’s name. The right airbag panel will feature Bush’s signature and the truck will come with a video of him autographing the truck and driving it around his ranch in Crawford, Texas.

“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.”
