All proceeds will go to the Pope Francis Center's mission to end homelessness in Detroit.
Ford Motor Company has joined Detroit’s Pope Francis Center in its mission to eradicate chronic homelessness in the city by 2030. The Michigan-based car company has customized a Ford Bronco that is designed after the 1980 model, which was retrofitted into a popemobile for Pope St. John Paul II’s 1979 trip to America. Now the one-of-a-kind SUV is headed to the auction block to raise money for the charity.
The custom-built Bronco started out as a standard 2021 four-door donated by David Fischer Jr., president & CEO at The Suburban Collection Holdings, LLC. Although no pope has ever ridden in it, every inch is brimming with papal influence.
