The The next generation of Ford Mustang It will be revealed in September, but now there’s also a new version of the original pony car.
The famous car builder Ringbrothers has unveiled an all-new car based on 1964.5 Mustang Convertible created for the client.
Well, it still has the wheel center caps from the original car, but everything else is made to order.
Working from CAD data, the team actually expanded the body an inch in length and width and combined it with the modern, in-house designed chassis it uses in many of its projects.
At a quick glance, it looks like a slightly modified version of the car from the outside, while the interior is a more modern interpretation of the original, although it retains the low-back seats common in the period.
“The client was very involved in the process and insisted on maintaining the subtle, stock-like look,” said Mike Ring, one of the owners of Ringbrothers.
“Everything has been removed from the original Mustang’s design, but we’ve sharpened the lines and added a number of 3D-printed details to make it truly unique.”
Things are more modern below the surface. The car is powered by the same 5.0 liter engine V8 featured in current Mustang It uses a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Ringbrothers didn’t say how powerful it was, but they did upgrade it with custom intake heads and a Flowmaster exhaust.
Another touch for the 21st century is the independent rear suspension, which the Mustang didn’t get until the last model launched in 2015.
Penske Racing shocks and springs, Baer brakes and unique EVOD alloy wheels built after the design of the 1964.5 Rally.
Nicknamed the Caged car, Ringbrothers said it took 4,200 hours to build. Its price has not been disclosed, but several other store creations have been resold at auction for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
