Ring Brothers "CAGED" 1964.5 Widebody, Coyote Powered Mustang convertible
This Mustang looks pretty factory in the styling, but it is so much more than meets the eye. Mike and Jim Ring build some of the most insane custom cars around. These guys arent just building cars from drawings, they are designed with automotive engineers and drawns and styled from some of the best designers in the world. Functional in a world of one off and aesthetic chaos, this build is rather tame compared to past builds, as well as some special ones for this upcoming SEMA.
Like most of the builds as of the last 5-7 years, we made the trek out to do the final sanding and polishing work. Dan Smith, from Dan's Automotive detailing came out to help me with this project. We had actually finished correcting and fully ceramic coating this car when we found out the customer had decided he wanted the car covered in ppf. The car was then repolished and wrapped in suntek from our friend Connor Harrison at CH Detailing. Regardless of the detailing process (we have a video coming soon), the car is what is really exciting :)
The first thing most wouldnt notice is that the car is a full 2" wider. Each side was pulled out 1" and still retains the factory style body lines to keep everyhing subtle. The front grille is set back about 2" that feeds the Ford Coyote engine with plenty of upgrades. It has a 1080R gearbox, custom wheels and finished in a custom nickel accent for most of the build.
There isnt much that isnt custom on this car, even if it looks factory.
Enjoy the pics and keep shining on!
