If you have a few dollars burning a hole in your pocket and want to acquire a showstopping vehicle while raising funds for a worthy cause, read on.
The WD-40® Brand is cruising into the new year by auctioning off an iconic cult classic, a 1966 Ford Bronco on BringaTrailer.com through Jan. 13 to benefit Childhelp®.
WD-40 Company and SEMA Cares have been rebuilding classic American cars for nearly a decade and this year’s 1966 Boosted Bronco is a one-of-a-kind vehicle, just like all the others that have preceded it. Over the years, the company has created some notable SEMA Cares vehicles, including the WD-40/SEMA Cares Mustang in 2011; WD-40/SEMA Cares Foose Challenger in 2012; WD-40/SEMA Cares Foose ’53 Ford F-100 in 2013; WD-40 Specialist/SEMA Cares Foose Ford F-350 in 2014 and the WD-40/SEMA Cares 1967 Camaro in 2019.
Attendees at the 2019 SEMA Show were able to see the vehicle in person at the WD-40 Brand booth. All the proceeds from the auction will go to ChildHelp, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention and treatment of child abuse. To bid on the Bronco, visit: bringatrailer.com/listing/1966-ford-bronco-20/. At the time of this publication, the top bid was $57,500 with brisk bidding anticipated right up until midnight on Jan. 13.
WD-40 Brand initially debuted the Boosted Bronco at the 2017 SEMA Show with builder Aaron Vaccar. In 2017, the Boosted Bronco was given a 3.5L eco-boost, twin-turbocharged engine with six-speed automatic transmission. They also added a brand-new fuel system and custom exhaust; custom fabricated turbo piping; new front and rear suspension with a 5-inch lift and new front and rear axles; custom brown leather seats, a rear bench and fully carpeted interior to give an old-school aesthetic; new front and rear door panels with side mirrors; a six-point roll cage, among others.
Each year, WD-40 selects a vehicle rebuilder for its reputation and skillset to work on its SEMA Cares car. This year it was LGE-CTS Motorsports of San Dimas, CA, with Louie Morosan and his two daughters Theresa and Sarah working side-by-side to make the Bronco a showstopper.
