President George W. Bush’s 2009 F-150 King Ranch 4×4 SuperCrew was auctioned off for charity on Saturday, and brought in a whopping $300,000.

The proceeds will benefit the Fisher House Foundation, a charity that serves U.S. military families, MSN reported.

The truck was auctioned off as a part of the Barrett-Jackson collector car auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The 43rd President of the United States used the truck to roam around on his Crawford, Texas ranch.

“I haven’t driven on a street in many, many years, but I have been able to drive this truck on my ranch,” Bush said in a statement.
