First-ever ‘Petty Warrior’ Ford F-150 Headed to Auction, Sept. 27
The only Warrior Ford F-150 sold to the public will benefit Paralyzed Veterans of America.
To most, Richard Petty is known simply as “The King,” a NASCAR legend who dominated his sport over an illustrious career. But those who know Petty well know that he’s also an incredible guy who’s usually the first to help others in need. In addition to helping chronically ill children, he is often found helping our nation’s heroes get behind the wheel of some pretty awesome machinery, like his latest creation: the Petty’s Garage Warrior Ford F-150.
Built specially for active duty military service men and women, the Warrior Ford F-150 packs a Whipple supercharger, which helps it make a stout 750 hp. Other goodies include a Magnaflow exhaust, 20″ Fuel OffRoad Vector wheels, and General Grabber X3 tires. The paint features special Petty Blue accents, as does the custom leather interior. The finishing touches are a custom hood, Fox shocks and coilovers, and plenty of badging inside and out.
This is all awesome stuff, of course. Unless you’re a civilian, in which case the Warrior Ford F-150 is typically off limits. But now Petty’s Garage is making one of these killer trucks available to the public via Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas auction on September 27. Even better, all benefits from the sale go to benefit the Paralyzed Veterans of America. Thus, B-J has even waived all commissions and fees to ensure every single penny goes to help our heroes.
Seems like a total win-win to us. Who wouldn’t want an awesome truck like this, especially knowing that all the money is going to a great cause? Of course, you better bring your wallets, because we’re guessing it won’t go cheap. Then again, we’re actually hoping that this awesome Ford F-150 hammers at an astronomically high price, for once!
