DEARBORN, Mich., Jan. 30, 2024 – Ford is teaming up with acclaimed actress and avid auto enthusiast Sydney Sweeney to give one lucky fan a custom-made 2024 Ford Mustang GT designed by Sweeney herself.

Sweeney worked closely with the Ford team to design her dream vehicle, inspired by her 1965 Mustang named Britney. “Growing up, I was often the only girl in the shop. And even now, I still get comments saying there’s no way I work on my own car,” Sweeney said. “It’s heartening to see Ford celebrate individuals who are pushing past stereotypes to do what they love. That’s why I was so excited to work with Ford on designing my dream car, and I can’t wait to surprise someone special with a matching vehicle.”

The contest – which begins today – aims to celebrate those who defy stereotypes to pursue their passions. Participants can enter to win by sharing their stories on the Ford Instagram or TikTok channels. The contest closes Feb. 7, 2024, at 11:59 p.m. ET.*

A Kindred Spirit

"Like me, Sydney is a Mustang girl. Each generation has its own distinct personality, but at their core, they embody a spirit of disruption, edge, and undeniable allure,” said Laurie Transou, Ford Mustang chief engineer. “Sydney's interpretation of the Mustang captures this essence perfectly, reflecting the expressive and individualistic nature of those who are drawn to this iconic vehicle."

Sweeney grew up in a family of mechanics in Spokane, Wash., and learned to drive on her great-grandfather’s Ford F-100. During the pandemic, she documented her restoration of a 1969 Ford Bronco on her TikTok channel, @Syd’s_Garage, garnering over 7 million likes. 

Not Our First Spin Together

Most recently, last November, Ford and Sweeney released a highly anticipated new workwear collection. This followed the first line of Ford x Sydney Sweeney apparel, which launched in March 2023; this workwear collection was in high demand, with the most popular items selling out in under 36 hours and prompting a restock.  

In addition to her two Ford x Sydney Sweeney exclusive workwear collections, Sweeney launched an Auto 101 social series and online lookbook to help teach viewers how to check their vehicle tire pressure, jump a dead battery, and other aspects of vehicle maintenance. The series aims to inspire women to feel more comfortable working on their vehicles.
