Leading up to next week’s aftermarket extravaganza in Las Vegas, Nevada, Ford is teasing some of the 50 customized machines set to polish the oval. Among those project vehicles are a pair of modern Mustangs, including a Fastback GT and an EcoBoost convertible.

“It wouldn’t be a SEMA Show without some F-150 and Mustang love from our builder partners,” said Eric Cin, global director, Ford Vehicle Personalization and Accessories. “These two iconic nameplates are always the most popular Ford vehicles throughout the show and each of these builds gives a refreshed glimpse at some of the latest trends in customization.”
California Pony Cars Ford Mustang GT Fastback
Designed with a low-slung, aggressive attitude, the 2019 Mustang GT created by California Pony Cars is dolled up with a host of the company’s body upgrades, including a hood, decklid, side skirts, grille, front chin spoiler, rear diffuser and wing with wicker bill, rear blackout panel, mirror covers, wheel arches, front bumper air duct panels, and aluminum splitter kit. Ford Performance lowering springs drop it down over massive, 21-inch Triumph Performance wheels wrapped in TOYO Proxes T1R tires. A Ford Performance TVS blower and Borla exhaust give it extra go to balance all that show, and Baer EradiSpeed rotor upgrades slow it down.
Goodguys Rod & Custom Association Ford Mustang Convertible
Event promoter Goodguys Rod & Custom Association modded this EcoBoost-powered 2020 Ford Mustang convertible equipped with Ford Performance lowering springs, Brembo brakes, B-forged 20-inch wheels, and Michelin Pilot Sport tires. To stand out on the show floor Goodguys commissioned a red, black, and gold PPG paint scheme accented by Ford Performance hood struts and decklid appliqué, Ford Accessories side scoops by Air Design, GT Performance fender flares and rear diffuser, plus a Classic Design Concepts carbon convertible roll hoop.
In addition to the static vehicle displays, the Ford Out Front exhibit will command the attention of showgoers, as a variety of performance vehicles will be smoking tires, sliding, and jumping. Among the pilots of those machines will be drift star and Professional Funhaver Vaughn Gittin Jr. Stay tuned next week for coverage of the hottest new gear and vehicles from the show.
