Jay Leno’s 2000 Harley-Davidson Ford F-150 Going to Auction
Jay Leno loves high performance vehicles and he loves philanthropy, so it comes as little surprise that the famous TV funnyman has offered up his unique 2000 Ford F-150 Harley-Davidson Edition for auction, with the proceeds going to charity.
Leno’s 2000 Harley F-150 was a gift from Ford Motor Company, packing the supercharged V8 from the SVT Lightning. The blown 5.4L V8 would eventually become the standard engine in the HD F-150, but for the 2000 model year, Leno’s truck was the only one built with the supercharged 360 hp mill. It was also the very first production model of the 2000 Harley Davidson F-150, but the bigger news with this truck is that it was the only supercharged Harley truck built for 2000.
This truck has been in Jay Leno’s collection since it was given to him, but on January 29th, it will roll onto the block at the Barrett Jackson Scottsdale Auction in Arizona. Following the bidding war that is sure to ensue from this rare piece of automobilia hitting the auction block, the proceeds will go to the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
So, if you want to buy one of the rarest high performance Ford trucks of all time, head to the Barrett Jackson auction later this month – but expect to pay serious money. Leno’s Dodge Challenger SRT8 was auctioned off last year with benefits going to USO, and that car sold for $360,000.
