Jay Leno is auctioning off his custom 2000 Harley-Davidson Ford F-150 for charity.
The TV celeb and car enthusiast is teaming up with Ford at the 45th Anniversary of the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction. That’s where his one-of-a-kind truck is hitting the auction block later this month. The sale proceeds will benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Leno got this truck back in May 2000 at the Ford World Headquarters where it was presented to him by Jim O’Connor, Ford Division President. It is the only F-150 of its make with a SVT Lightning powertrain. As such, it has a supercharged 5.4-liter Triton V8 engine that delivers 360-horsepower. It gets a nice rumble, too, from a custom tuned single-inlet dual-outlet exhaust.
The exterior is classic F-150 with some custom touches. It features monochrome black paint and 20-inch chrome wheels. Official Harley-Davidson orange pin-striping and badges declare its Harley status.
Leno is personally going to stand on the block next to his truck to help motivate bidders. Check out the event live on Velocity on January 29th. The occasion also marks the first collaboration between Ford and Leno.
“This is an opportunity to own a truly unique vehicle from my personal collection. Not only is this Harley-Davidson F-150 the only one of its kind, it’s providing much needed resources to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The next owner can feel good knowing that they’re getting an outstanding truck and supporting a great cause at the same time,” says Leno.
Leno is also releasing an exclusive pre-sale video about his truck on January 18th. Check it out on his Jay Leno’s Garage show website.
