This 1953 <a href="http://autoblog.com/ford/">Ford</a> F-100 pickup was created to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the one item just about everybody has in their toolbox: <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/wd-40/">WD-40</a>.<br /><br />Way back when, WD-40 was sold by the Rocket Chemical Company, and the vintage artwork on the door highlights that little bit of trivia. Under the truck's massive flowing hood sits an original 239-cubic-inch flathead V8 engine, with appropriately modern updates, naturally. A set of one-off Foose wheels wearing Pirelli P Zero tires completes the aesthetic.<br /><br />All proceeds from the vehicle sale will benefit two charities: Childhelp and Victory Junction.
