Ringbrothers’ Latest Mustang Project
As if you need another reason to try and wrangle a way into the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this November, Ringbrothers is bringing three brand-new projects, one of which is a Mustang convertible that we can’t wait to see. Based in the small town of Spring Green, WI, Mike and Jim Ring (the Ring brothers, duh) build some world-class hot rods and custom cars, many of which we’ve brought to you on Mustang360.com and in the pages of Mustang Monthly magazine.
While Ringbrothers are building a radical 1948 Cadillac (more on that below) and yet another Camaro, their project of particular interest to us is Ballistic, the team’s latest Mustang. While Ringbrothers has built a stable full of fastback Mustangs, they had yet to take on a convertible—until now. The 1965 wide-body Mustang convertible they’ve named “Ballistic” is powered by a supercharged 5.8-liter Ford V8 engine that was taken from a late model G.T. 500. The crew spent countless hours on body work and finishing the car in the BASF Glasurit custom hue “Blu by U,” to make the car not only show ready, but equipped to rule the road. The Mustang will be making history, as it will be the first car to ever be unveiled in the Ringbrothers booth. The cover will be pulled off Ballistic in the Ringbrothers booth (#23283) on Wednesday, November 2, 2016 at 10:00 a.m., if you happen to make it to SEMA.
