For Sale at Auction: 2002 Ford F150 in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

The Gladiator was conceived and designed as a tribute to the legendary daredevil Evel Knievel by Beau Boeckmann, president of Galpin Auto Sports, who lists Knievel as one of his childhood idols. Bold and brave as the late, great American icon for whom this F-150 Super Crew pickup was conceived, the Gladiator is a tribute to the very spirit of Evel Knievel, inside and out. It has red, white and blue leather, custom blue-dyed dash, door panels and interiors, and a red carbon-fiber dash kit, including steering wheel, door panels, armrest and cup holders, as well as custom EK badging. The Gladiator is powered by a 5.4-liter V8 engine upgraded with a Magna Charger intercooled supercharger, Super Chip performance chip and gauges, Bell Tech suspension with high-pressure gas shocks, performance springs, upper and lower billet grille, and a custom sight and sound package. In June 2002 Galpin Ford had a huge party to unveil the new truck at their dealership in Los Angeles with nearly 3,500 people attending the meet and greet to get an autograph or a photo with Knievel. In addition, Knievel used this event as a platform to announce his comeback to motorcycle jumping. The Montana owner grew up living in Butte, MT, with Knievel living only blocks away during the daredevil's heyday. This truck was part of the successful Snake River Canyon jump that stunt man Eddy Braun dedicated to Knievel. This truck has 19,527 actual miles (mileage not indicated on the title) Maintained with all OEM parts and supplies. Always stored in a climate-controlled private collection. CARFAX shows Ford Motor Company Manufacturer Safety recall on 09/04/2005: Speed control system modification.
