25-year-old actress Sydney Sweeney is the new face of Ford x Dickies thanks to her popular TikTok account where she restores a 1969 Ford Bronco.

“I come from a family of mechanics,” Sweeney says in a new video announcing the collaboration. “And… I learned to drive on my great grandpa’s F-100. I think that’s when I first fell in love with Ford.

“A vintage Ford Bronco was my dream dream car. I wanted that car so bad.

“I was the only girl in the shop,” she continued. “I changed the transmission, added power steering, new brakes, updated the radio, the suspension, redesigned the interior, and added a rollbar, but that is just the beginning.”

“We wanted to create pieces for all genders and personalities,” Sydney Sweeney said about the new collection. “This can be a very male-dominated space, and I wanted to design pieces that feel more inclusive and fun.”

“I’m always in jeans, T-shirts, baseball caps, and still, overalls,” she told Vogue about the new Ford x Dickies campaign.

“So when Ford came to me, I was so excited. I wore overalls in the shop every single day when I worked on my Bronco. This is very genuine.”

That’s no joke.

“I think my first-ever class photo is me wearing a pair of overalls,” the Spokane, Washington native admitted.
