Ford Motor Co. has donated the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor VIN 001 (Lot #3004) to benefit the National Forest Foundation and Outward Bound. The mission of the National Forest Foundation is to engage Americans into promoting the health and public enjoyment of our national forests. Outward Bound programs are designed to prepare students of all ages and circumstances with the strength of character and determination they need to thrive. This VIN 001 Bronco Raptor’s power comes from Ford’s twin-turbo 3.0-liter EcoBoost engine with specific Raptor-level tuning and paired with a 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. Designed for desert running and boulder crawling, the Ultra4 Racing-inspired SUV features a high-strength steel frame, Ford Performance-developed axles, an advanced 4×4 system and High-Performance Off-Road Stability Suspension (HOSS) system.
Offered from the world-class George Shinn Collection is a 2009 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake (Lot #3003) will support Samaritan’s Purse for disaster relief and emergency medical care in Ukraine. This 750hp Shelby Super Snake is powered by a supercharged 4-cam 5.4-liter V8 engine backed by a 6-speed manual transmission with a 3.73:1 rear end showing 6,484 actual miles. Finished in Vapor Silver Metallic paint, the car features a carbon-composite hood with full-width scoops and hold-down pins, a carbon fiber front splitter, mirror covers and rocker panels. Carroll Shelby signed the black interior of this Super Snake, which is No. 309 built in 2009.
