We seldom hear about Jay Leno selling anything from his massive collection of vehicles, but it would seem he's willing to let something go when there's a good cause. The rare opportunity to own a truck with the denim-clad comedian's provenance comes soon when he auctions the first 2000 Ford F-150 Harley-Davidson at the Barrett-Jackson sale in Scottsdale, AZ. All of the proceeds will go to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

With just 2,000 miles, Jay's F-150 remains in great condition, and the black paint with a red pinstripe still shines like new. He says the pickup has fresh fluids, and the only change from stock is a new battery. Jay makes a case for buying the Ford in the latest video from Jay Leno's Garage. The comedian wanted something special when he bought the first Harley-Davidson F-150, so Ford dropped in the supercharged V8 with 360 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque from the SVT Lightning.

As an added bonus, the truck's new buyer takes delivery at Leno's garage and gets to take a tour, which, to some buyers, might be more of a draw than the actual truck. Will the combination of the big V8 and the celebrity tie-in be enough to bring in big bucks at Barrett-Jackson? We'll know soon enough – the auction is set to take place in just a few weeks on January 29.
