Ringbrothers To Unveil A Custom-Built, 1956 Ford F-100 Pickup At SEMA

The vehicle customizers at Wisconsin-based shop Ringbrothers are getting ready to pull the wraps off a brand-new custom whip at the 2017 SEMA Show: a 1956 Ford F-100 pickup truck nicknamed “Clem 101”. The one-off Ford pickup is supported by a boxed frame built from scratch, with a modern suspension setup, and a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 crate motor under the hood.

Additional touches include widened rear fenders, “Speedy P Green” paint from BASF’s Glasurit line, and a Flowmaster exhaust system. From the sketch that we’ve seen, it looks like the Ford F-100 will ride close to the ground, in keeping with Mike and Jim Ring’s pattern of building low-slung street machines. Fluids from Royal Purple and Prestone will keep Ringbrothers’ 1956 Ford F-100 cool and lubricated.

Ringbrothers has always been one of our favorite custom shops to keep a regular presence at the SEMA Show, unveiling such memorable builds as the ’65 Ford Mustang “Espionage” and ’65 Mustang “SPLITR” in recent years. Granted, the Ford F-100 is no Mustang, but we don’t doubt that Mike and Jim Ring have done fantastic things with it nonetheless.
