“This is one of the coolest vehicles we’ve ever brought to Barrett-Jackson,” said Darrell Gwynn, president of the Darrell Gwynn Foundation. “This year marks our tenth anniversary selling vehicles at Barrett-Jackson to support our Wheelchair Donation Program. It’s very fitting that thanks to Ford and Extreme Super Truck we have such a special vehicle to celebrate 10 years of fundraising with Barrett-Jackson and the incredible impact Barrett-Jackson has made over the years helping us give the gift of mobility to so many in need.” 

The Ford F-650 truck was donated to the foundation by Ford Motor Company. It was then given a complete customization by Extreme Super Truck in Atlanta, creating the ultimate charity truck surely to dazzle potential buyers at the world’s largest auto auction. The truck also includes a Rolltisserie by Southern Pride cooker.

    I'm a SCI person myself and think that is great what the Darrell Gwynn foundation is doing. . I'm trying to figure out how to get a custom lightweight wheelchair and a killer of road electric chair paid for. Struggling with what I have now.
    Please contact me ,I sure could use some direction.
    It would also be awesome to figure out how to get my own transportation. Nice rock'n truck.!

    Thanks , Mark S.
