Recently, one of Cars 4 Causes’ generous supporters donated a rare 1947 Ford Business Coupe and asked that we share the proceeds from its sale with the Wounded Warrior Project. Wounded Warrior Project is a complete rehabilitative effort to assist our servicemen as they recover and transition back to civilian life.
To get the greatest proceeds from this incredible classic, Cars 4 Causes will auction it through McCormick’s Palm Springs Collector Car Auctions on Sunday February 24, 2013 at 12:10pm. We are expecting great things from this sale to help us support the Wounded Warrior Project.
This 1947 Ford classic, sports a 427 Ford engine with a whopping 400 horsepower and MSD ignition. Its equipped with 2 ½” headers and exhaust, a C-6 Transmission, 8” Ford rear end, 3:50 gears, independent front suspension, power steering, 4 wheel power disc brakes, chopped, shaved door handles, electric windows, air conditioning, heater and stereo and disc player.
Whether it’s a classic car, like this one, a fine motor sailor or a luxury yacht, Cars 4 Causes® and Boats 4 Causes® are fortunate to receive several similar unique donations throughout the year that benefit the charity, church or school that holds a special place in each donors’ heart.
