George W. Bush's truck has been sold. The 2009 Ford F-150 King Ranch 4X4 SuperCrew was auctioned off by Barrett-Jackson to benefit the Fisher House Foundation, a charity that helps United States military families. Final price for the truck? $300,000.

The pickup truck was sold as a part of the Barrett-Jackson auction house's collectible cars sale in Scottsdale, Ariz. Bush used it primarily on his ranch in Crawford Texas. In addition to the Ford, the undisclosed buyer also had the airbag panel signed by the 43rd President of the United States and received a video showing Bush driving the vehicle and autographing its interior.

"I haven't driven on a street in many, many years, but I have been able to drive this truck on my ranch," Bush says in a statement.
