SEMA 2010: Ring Brothers 1966 Mustang race car
Custom car builders are usually so busy with customer projects that they rarely get to build something for themselves. Fortunately, the Ring Brothers found the time to work on their own project, this beautiful 1966 Mustang. “It’s actually our shop car,” said Lauren Forseth of the Ring Brothers. “This was built for us – the first one in years, actually.”
The design is more understated and subtle than many of their customer cars, mostly because they actually plan on racing the car. “We were going for the more racy design,” Forseth told us. “This car is built to have fun on the track. We are really excited to beat on a car for once.”
Starting with a clean ’66 fastback, the Ring Brothers added a full carbon fiber roof, custom bodywork, Baer brakes, Forgeline 18-inch wheels, Magnaflow exhaust, custom one-off roll cage and Fuel Safe racing fuel cell. Under the hood is a 427ci V8 built by Keith Kraft putting out 602 horsepower that is mated to a Tremec 6-speed manual transmission. Of course, many of the custom billet pieces found in the Ring Brothers’ parts catalog can also be found on the car.
