Bronco restoration auction to benefit veterans, first responders
SAN ANTONIO — To help military personnel, veterans and first responders in need rebuild their lives, PowerNation’s Music City Trucks show restored a 1974 Beach Cruiser Bronco that will be auctioned on Jan. 6-16, 2022, to benefit the Warriors Heart Foundation, according to a press release.
With Sea Foam as a sponsor, this Ford Bronco restoration will be auctioned both online and offline during the Mecum Auctions on Jan. 6-16, 2022, in Kissimmee, Florida.
A recent Music City Trucks episode, which aired on NBC Sports Network nationally and online, featured guests included Former Delta Operator and Warriors Heart Co-Founder Tom Spooner and Professional Angler and Tactical Trainer Jamey Caldwell.
Spooner and Caldwell served together on many deployments in Afghanistan and Iraq, and provided the big picture impact of how the funds raised will help heal frontline protectors struggling with addiction, PTSD and co-occurring issues.
To date, 2,000-plus warriors have gone through the Warriors Heart residential treatment program since it opened in 2016.
“In our post retirement afterlife, I’m very involved and one of the founders of Warriors Heart, which is the inspiration for this whole build,” Spooner said.
When asked to explain the foundation, Spooner expanded, “Warriors Heart Foundation, the meat and potatoes of it … subsidizes treatment costs for our veterans, first responders and protectors. Through the foundation, every dollar goes towards a human being. You can get involved by helping other human beings, and that’s how the viewers can get involved through the auction.”
Caldwell added, “When this Bronco is sitting on the auction block, whoever wins it and gets it, it will be an unbelievable vehicle to have, but the background behind it, and what really gets me is, I’ve visited Warriors Heart and taken guys fishing there. To see what happens down there, and to know that all the proceeds from this whole project will go to help numerous guys and get them back on their feet, some of them off the streets, it’s amazing. You can’t put a price on it. It is literally going to saves lives.”
Host Brandon Burke then emphasized, “Marc and I are so proud to be building this truck and have been putting in long hours because we want this truck to represent Warriors Heart.”
The restoration team took a modern approach to a classic rig.
The upgrades include “a new chassis from Throttle Down Kustoms, supercharged Edelbrock Coyote crate engine, transfer case, axles, James Duff suspension, fuel system, sheet metal from Dennis Carpenter and an overhaul the interior with custom parts from TMI.”
Following this opening segment about Warriors Heart Foundation, viewers can watch a behind-the-scenes look at how this 1974 Ford Bronco was rebuilt.
Jason Abney and Cole McCrary from Sonax USA did the smooth buffing to bring out the paint’s shine.
Then, Mark Campbell of Edelbrock Group installed a brand new supercharge Coyote crate engine with high-end pistons with the co-hosts of the show.
Anyone can bid online and offline through the Mecum Auctions on Jan. 6-16, 2022.
