SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — A 2009 Ford F-150 King Ranch 4x4 SuperCrew pickup truck owned and driven by former President George W. Bush will cross the auction block on January 19 to benefit American veterans. The truck is part of the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction next month.

"I haven't driven on a street in many, many years, but I have been able to drive this truck on my ranch," said President Bush in a statement.

The F-150 truck was used by Bush at his Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford, Texas. It is equipped with a 310-horsepower 5.4-liter V8 engine and has an 11,200-pound towing capacity.

Barrett-Jackson calls it "a unique opportunity to own a piece of presidential automotive history." It has not put a price tag on the truck.

The truck features President Bush's autograph in the cabin and a copy of a video showing him driving it around his ranch.

Proceeds from the sale of the truck will benefit the Fisher House Foundation, which donates "comfort homes" built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers.

"These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times — during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease or injury," said Fisher House Foundation on its Web site.

Edmunds says: A truck with presidential provenance and an auction for a good cause sounds like an unbeatable combination.
