Ringbrothers Creates Custom 1960s Mustangs With Coyote 5.0L V-8

  • Ringbrothers tuner company turned its hand to the iconic 1964-1/2 Ford Mustang with a handcrafted body that was designed to update the original look by widening and one inch longer.
  • The Coyote’s 5.0L box-engine V-8 cuts power through a 10-speed automatic transmission and is linked to a Flowmaster exhaust.
  • “Caged” took over 4,200 hours to build and was built with about 100 percent of one-off Ringbrothers pieces.

    Ringbrothers have stripped the cloth from their latest model, the Mustang convertible they’re calling “Caged.” The car was designed jointly by the company and the customer, who requested a “thin stock-like look”. The extensively modified chassis is hidden under the familiar body lines. The bodywork was widened and lengthened by an inch, and the chassis was converted into a unified body.


    It took over 4,000 hours to build the car from start to finish and, in Ringbrothers style, the end product is one-of-a-kind. The only factory parts used on the Mustang are the wheel center caps. “Every piece of this vehicle has been touched up and updated with original design cues in mind, right down to the Mustang’s iconic taillight trim, gas cap, and bold horse emblems,” according to Jim Ring of Ringbrothers.

    Tucked under the hood and behind the redesigned front grille is a 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 engine paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The exhaust is handled by specially designed heads and the Flowmaster exhaust system. “Caged” rides on a set of 18-inch Evod Industries wheels meant to mirror the style of the original rally wheels, while the shock absorption is done by Penske Racing Shocks RS Edition coils. The car also features an independent rear suspension and a set of Baer brakes to slow the new old horse.


    “Caged” is a passionate project created with the aim of developing and modernizing the original Mustang’s chassis while also maintaining its aesthetics, and according to Jim Ring, “There are so many nuances that went into the design, and we are proud of this aspect of the build. Only an expert eye will be able to discern accuracy differences.
