SPX Donates “Ultimate Tailgate” Truck to Benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

On Friday, January 18, 2013, a winning bid of $100,000 was placed for SPX’s “Ultimate Tailgate” custom outfitted Ford F-150 King Ranch truck at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, with all proceeds going to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. SPX would once again like to thank everyone at Galpin Auto Sports, Ford Motor Company and Barrett-Jackson for partnering to create and auction off this truly unique vehicle in order to help support an organization that does so much for so many children and their families.

SPX teamed up with Galpin Auto Sports, Ford Motor Company, and Barrett-Jackson to donate a truly unique vehicle for auction at the 2013 Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona in an effort to help raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The donation marks the fourth straight year SPX has contributed a vehicle to Barrett-Jackson’s charity auction, with all the proceeds going to St. Jude.

Previously, SPX has donated a series of custom Ford Mustang race cars. This year, SPX offered a one-of-a-kind 2013 Ford F-150 King Ranch truck that was uniquely designed and outfitted by the automotive pros at Galpin to deliver the ultimate tailgate experience, no matter where it goes.

The extraordinary truck features a 40” LCD television at the front of the truck bed, along with 21” flip-down televisions on the sides of the bed cover, a stainless steel BBQ on a moving bed slide with an adjacent stainless steel sink, a portable power generator, premium exterior audio system with touch-screen controls, an Xbox 360 in the rear bed, a custom-painted cooler in the center of the slide for food and drinks, and premium wheels and tires.
