Bill Ford Among 2024 Automotive Hall Of Fame Inductees

As one would imagine from a company with such a storied past and massive presence to this day, there are plenty of Ford-related leaders that have been inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame over the years, a list that includes everyone from former CEO Alan Mulally to Blue Oval-focused tuner and founder of Roush Performance, Jack Roush. Now, the company is set to add another rather famous name to that list as well, as FoMoCo chairman Bill Ford has officially been named as one of this year’s inductees into the Automotive Hall of Fame, too.

“Bill Ford has played a pivotal role advancing the industry while positioning an iconic, global, 120-year-old family company for the future,” the Automotive Hall of Fame said in a statement. “Since becoming executive chair 25 years ago, he has led Ford Motor Company through periods of change and uncertainty with a values-driven approach that demonstrates corporate responsibility and success can go hand in hand. He was an early and influential advocate for sustainability and environmental responsibility, a driving force behind mobility innovation, and continues to be a champion for the revitalization of the Motor City.”

Bill Ford will officially be inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame at the 2024 Induction & Awards Ceremony in Detroit, which is scheduled to take place on September 19th. Ford will be joined by a host of others receiving this notable accolade, including Dr. Betsy Ancker-Johnson, Vic Edelbrock Sr. and Vic Edelbrock Jr., John James Sr., Wendell Scott, and Vivek Sehgal.

“Once again, this year’s class of inductees highlights the breadth of contributions individuals have had on this industry and all that it influences,” said Sarah Cook, president of the Automotive Hall of Fame. “This diverse group of trailblazing innovators and leaders have played a critical role in shaping our industry, and we couldn’t be more pleased to recognize their achievements and welcome them into the Hall of Fame.”

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.
