Chip Foose Customized 1953 Ford F-100 Fetches $170,000 at Auction

Proceeds To Benefit Children's Charities

Edward A. SanchezFeb 7, 2013
The 1953 Ford F-100 customized by legendary custom vehicle builder Chip Foose, which was originally seen at the 2012 SEMA show along with a lifted and customized 2012 Ford F-350, sold for $170,000 at last month's Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. The truck was a collaborative effort between lubricant maker WD-40 and SEMA Cares, the charity arm of the Specialty Equipment Market Association. The lettering on the side of the truck reflects the original name of the WD-40 chemical company, Rocket Chemical Co.

Although getting retro touches in commemoration of WD-40's 60th anniversary, the truck features a modernized, updated drivetrain and suspension, with the appropriately sporty custom touches expected of a Foose-built vehicle. The winning bid was made by Robert Wilson of Loveland, Colorado. The proceeds will go to benefit Childhelp, a service provider to abused and neglected children, and Victory Junction, a North Carolina camp for special-needs and chronically ill children. Previous charity vehicle builds, including a Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Mustang, and Dodge Challenger, have raised a total of $570,000 for the two charities.
