The Ringbrothers 1965 Ford Mustang ‘Espionage’ Rolls Into Jay Leno’s Garage: Video

If you haven’t yet heard of the Ringbrothers custom shop, nor its namesakes – brothers Jim and Mike Ring – now would be a prime opportunity to bring yourself up to speed. The shop is responsible for some clean, polished, and remarkable custom hot rods like the 980 HP “Recoil” Chevy Chevelle from last year’s SEMA show or, more recently, this year’s “SPLITR” 1965 Ford Mustang.

But perhaps even more desirable than that custom hot rod was the Ring brothers’ other take on the 1965 Ford Mustang: the “Espionage.” With a body made entirely of carbon fiber, with two extra inches of width on either side, shod in an aptly-named color dubbed “Spy Green,” the 1965 Ford Mustang “Espionage” is a first-generation ‘Stang-lover’s wildest dream.

On the episode of Jay Leno’s Garage posted above, it’s this very car that we’re allowed to admire in great detail. Brothers Jim and Mike Ring even stop by to talk us through its extensive list of modifications which, in addition to the aforementioned, includes a 7.0-liter LS7 V8 like that found in the 2015 Camaro Z/28, a Tremec T56 6-speed manual, and a Whipple supercharger.
