A very unique Toyota Tundra recently raised an impressive $100,000 for the Emporia Community Foundation, a charity that aid the citizens of Emporia, KS, with the help of a Toyota dealership in Orange County, FL due to its extremely playful paint job. The pickup truck's paint job makes it looks quite old and used at first glance, but after a longer look, viewers realize it's simply a well-crafted paint job by Sherwin-Williams.
The truck was built by NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer as a tribute to America's Heartland, and it features such elements as: 20-inch wheels that appear to be vintage, a vertical bar grille, and a wood bed floor. A large portion of the paint job was done by hand, including the white pinstripe around the Toyota lettering on the doors. Inside the custom cloth seats are quite vintage.
Toyota donated the truck (at no charge) to the Orange County Toyota dealership to raise capital for the charity. At first, bidding stayed at a conservative $30,000, but after a driver suit and a trip to next year's Daytona 500 were tacked on as well, the selling price ended with a final bid of $100,000.
It seems that any vehicle with the Toyota logo is a coveted one- even if it looks highly used!
