The Patriot Ford Raptor Truck to be Auctioned Again at the 2015 Indianapolis Mecum Auto Auction on May 16th

A custom aero cover for the truck bed was created for The Patriot by BAT Industry. The American Eagle and flag art theme was created by Ryan Ryno Templeton who has been featured on popular television shows such as Car Warriors, West Coast Customs, and Trick My Truck.

The MobilityWorks Foundation is once again auctioning “The Patriot”, its one-of-a-kind 2014 Ford Raptor created West Coast Customs. Thanks to an anonymous donor at the Mecum auction held in September in Dallas, TX, The Patriot was donated back to the foundation. Since then, it has been on display throughout the country at a variety of special events and parades honoring our nation’s veterans. The custom vehicle will be auctioned (now for the second time) on Saturday, May 16th with proceeds from the sale going to benefit disabled veterans.

The transformed 2014 Ford Raptor, aptly named, “The Patriot,” features a spectacular American flag custom paint job, courtesy of West Coast Customs and Ryan Ryno Templeton. This automotive and art masterpiece also has interior embroidery representing each branch of the United States military.

In addition to West Cost Customs, several other sponsors also made this custom build possible, including: MobilityWorks; BraunAbility; Magnaflow; Bully Dog; LM Tire & Wheel; Indianapolis Dent Company; and BDS Suspension. Since the first auction in September, an additional enhancement was made by BAT Industries. A custom aero cover was fabricated by BAT and then painted by Ryan Ryno Templeton to match the original theme of the vehicle. For more information on BAT, go to www.batindustry.com.

Proceeds from the sale of The Patriot will go to The MobilityWorks Foundation to support their efforts in helping deserving veterans and local organizations that provide assistance to our wounded heroes with wheelchair-accessible transportation, training, housing and other services. There is no reserve on this auction, designated as lot #S10.

The Mecum Indianapolis 2000 Vehicle Auction will air live on NBCSN May 14-17 at various times. Check your cable provider listings for specific air times.
