Education is one of the keys to societal success including the automotive industry. Santa Fe Early College Opportunities Auto Tech School, a high school located in Santa Fe, New Mexico that provides applied sciences and tech training along with traditional academic classes, teamed up with SEMA and 23 aftermarket companies to build a 2015 Jeep Wrangler. The Wrangler is being auctioned on the online auction marketplace Bring-a-Trailer. If you’re interested in bidding on this Wrangler, you need to hurry, as the auction is set to close on June 26th at 12pm PDT.
“We at Bring-a-Trailer are very excited to partner with SEMA to auction this special Jeep build,” said Randy Nonnenberg, BaT co-founder and CEO. “We also know that young enthusiasts are key to the future of the automotive hobby, and we applaud SEMA for investing in this program and these students. We are very happy also to be donating our entire auction fee on this Jeep to the same great cause.”
As we mentioned, 23 aftermarket companies – including Edelbrock, Extreme Terrain, and Hypertech – helped out with this Jeep build. Without them, builds like this wouldn’t be possible. For their part, Edelbrock donated an E-Force supercharger kit, Extreme Terrain donated a winch, front and rear lighting, and a fuel door, and Hypertech donated a Speedometer Calibrator.
The auction is going on right now. During the last two minutes of the sale, the clock will reset to two minutes after every bid until no more bids are placed, and then the auction will close. This system gives everyone the chance to bid on the Jeep and allows the Jeep to be sold to the true highest bidder, which will ultimately result in more money being donated.
