WD-40/Chip Foose Ford F-100 Auctioned for Charity at Barrett-Jackson
Forget the new Atlas concept, the hottest Ford truck to catch the public eye last week was a 1953 Ford F-100 customized by Chip Foose. Built to commemorate the 60th anniversary of WD-40, the classic F-100 was auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson for $170,000 with the proceeds going to support two charities–Childhelp and Victory Junction–as part of the SEMA cares program.
The truck has an original flathead V8 engine under the hood, classic paint and a nod to original WD-40 distributors Rocket Chemical Company in it’s paint and design. Chip Foose also created a set of original wheels for the build.
The truck was introduced at SEMA and traveled around the West Coast prior to the auction in Scottsdale.
