After an online contest, the 2013 Ford Mustang GT High Gear Concept won the votes as the first-ever SEMA Mustang to be designed and built exclusively by women. In this episode of The Downshift, we take a look at the team of women who took the 2013 Ford Mustang GT High Gear from concept to reality.
About 40 women from the SEMA Businesswomen’s Network participated in the project. Some of the women who participated in the build — including Ford designer Jennifer Seely who sketched the original concept — share their experience working together on the High Gear Mustang GT and the challenges they face in a male-dominated industry.
Vic Edelbrock was among the many support staff members for the project as an Edelbrock supercharger was among the performance-enhancing parts added to the High Gear Mustang GT. Outside, matte black paint and a rose-gold satin chrome finish was used on the wheels and other exterior trim. The rose-gold chrome finish carried over to the interior, which also featured leather seats wrapped in quilted suede.
