Gary Sinise Foundation Partners With GMG For Barrett-Jackson Auction

When Lieutenant Dan calls, you answer and when veterans are in need of assistance, you come running (unless you have bone spurs). We at Gas Monkey were fortunate enough to partake in a build with the Gary Sinise Foundation and Sunbelt Rentals for a future episode of Fast ‘N Loud.

“While building cars is our passion, this build allowed us the pleasure of aiding Gary Sinise in his passion for helping, “our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need.” Ultimately, this 1981 custom Jeep CJ7 (lot #3005) will do just that when it crosses the block at Barrett-Jackson’s upcoming Scottsdale auction with 100% of the hammer price benefiting the Gary Sinise Foundation.

Freedom and security are precious gifts that we, as Americans, should never take for granted. We must do all we can to extend our hand in times of need to those who willingly sacrifice each day to provide that freedom and security. While we can never do enough to show gratitude to our nation’s defenders, we can always do a little more. – via Gary Sinise Foundation 

The CJ7’s most striking feature is the white exterior with accents honoring all branches of the United States military as well as the foundation’s logo. Additionally, the chassis has been painted blue to bring the patriotic notes of the exterior to the Jeep’s undercarriage which also features a 4-inch lift.

This custom goes far beyond just looks with a completely rebuilt original 258cu.-in. 4.2-liter engine with a BorgWarner T150 3-speed transmission. On the inside custom Speedhut and Redline Gauge Works gauges also pay tribute to the cause and are accompanied by the Gary Sinise Foundation challenge coin.

Given a new life of its own, this CJ7 looks to pay it forward on January 18th when it crosses the Barrett stage at 5:30 P.M. MST. Bidding can be done in person or online/by phone.
