Jay Leno to Auction Off One-Of-A-Kind Ford F-150 for Charity
Few people have owned as many different types of cars as Jay Leno. The former late night TV host and funnyman has a massive collection of cars, and though there may be a larger one out there, we’d be hard-pressed to find a more diverse collection– and one of those incredible vehicles is about to be sold at auction. The truck in question is a one-of-a-kind Harley-Davidson Edition Ford F-150. Though we might call it the “Harley-Lightning Edition” instead. The typical Harley Edition F-150s of the day featured a 5.4-liter supercharged V8, which was detuned to 340 horsepower and 425 pound-feet of torque. Leno, of course, wanted it to make the full power from the F-150 Lightning, so he had his Harley-Davidson SuperCrew tuned up to 360 hp and 440 lb-ft, to make it a Lightning-spec Harley truck.

The truck also features a custom exhaust that is a single-inlet, dual-outlet setup, which gives it an unholy exhaust note. The sound and the Harley look in a Lightning-fast package make this truck the best of what Ford was offering among its sport-truck variants back in 2000. 360 hp may not seem like much by today’s standards, but that was the top of the spectrum for truck power. Mind you, the Dodge Viper made between 450 and 460 horsepower, and a Ferrari 360 Modena was making 400 hp back in 2000.

The truck will be auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auctions, January 29. It is listed as lot #3006 if you want to get in on a celebrity-owned, one-of-a-kind truck. And proceeds from the auctioning of this truck will go to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Time to break open the checkbooks!
