The deadline to submit Ford project-vehicle proposals for the 2017 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show is approaching fast, with the first deadline falling on February 17th.
That’s the date by which aftermarket companies must complete Part 1 of Ford’s SEMA build application process, which involves emailing Ford a one-page summary with the vehicle model and theme, planned modifications, new-product development, a promotional plan, and a description of the vehicle’s display location on the show floor. A more detailed SEMA project proposal must be mailed to Ford by March 1st, with additional information supporting the one-page summary, a color vehicle rendering, and examples of past project vehicles.
Every year, the SEMA Show plays host to scores of expertly-modified production passenger cars that demonstrate the very best that the vehicle aftermarket has to offer. Ford enjoys having a large presence at the show, and at SEMA 2016, the automaker had the biggest presence of anyone with more than 50 custom vehicles on display.
The SEMA Show is held every year during November at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Visit SEMA.org for more info on applying for a Ford project vehicle.
