About a week ago, we announced that the 2012 SEMA Cares Chip Foose/WD-40 Ford F-350 would be crossing the block at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction. On Wednesday January 13, the truck did just that and according to Autoweek, it did it with a certain amount of flare, securing the highest bid thus far at the Arizona auction.
This particular 2012 F-350 was originally commissioned by the SEMA Cares organization that raises money for a number of charities. With the help of famed hot rodder Chip Foose and WD-40, the F-350 became one of two trucks the group built to raise money for SEMA causes.
Debuted at the 2012 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the truck features a custom grey interior, specialty graphics package and a plethora of performance parts from some of the leading names in the industry.
After touring around for the last year or so, the 2012 F-350 was finally retired and sent to Barrett-Jackson for auction. All its sale proceeds are set to go to SEMA Cares charities. On Wednesday evening, the truck sold for $200,000! This is the largest sum, as of this report, secured at the 2014 Scottsdale auction. Other high sellers thus far include a number of classic muscle cars and hot rods, as well as a 1941 Dodge Custom 4×4 pickup, which sold for $82,500. The other top sellers so far have sold for between $82,000 and $110,000.
While the SEMA Cares F-350 has taken the highest hammer price thus far, the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction continues on through the weekend, winding down on Sunday, January 19. But while other vehicles may end up taking the golden ticket for highest sale price at the end, the F-350 will go down as having had one of the highest sale prices for charity vehicles in this first Barrett-Jackson auction of the season!
