    Segment Transcript


    I’m Laura Reynolds with CarProUSA. Ford Events Manager Shawn Strain says Ford is honoring Women Air Force Service Pilots with a custom Mustang Mach-E at the Air Venture Charity Auction. "It is a 2021 Mustang Mach-E Premium trim and we've taken it and we've used iconic silver body paint and matte black hood and rear with bold yellow and oxford white stripes. We've pulled military badges like the U.S. Airforce Star and then the wasp pilot wings and one of the things that was really important to me is we put the number 38 on it and bold in gold and that 38 represents the 38 women who lost their lives in service. I think probably the accent that a lot of people will be pretty geeked out about is we have gorgeous Mach-E wheels with the yellow accents and a black aero cover." With today's Auto News, I'm Laura Reynolds.

     
    In honor of the humble sacrifices of the Women Airforce Service Pilots, Ford announces a one-of-one custom 2021 Mustang Mach-E inspired by the volunteer female pilots and the planes they piloted during World War II. It was auctioned at the 2021 Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) AirVenture air show on Thursday, July 29 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
