Ringbrothers 1969 Ford Mustang ‘Patriarc’ To Debut At SEMA 2022

Ringbrothers, a Connecticut-based purveyor of aftermarket aluminum body kits and parts run by brothers Jim and Mike Ring, has a knack for taking Blue Oval-built machines and turning them into something special for SEMA. Back in 2019, the organization showed off its unique 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 UNKL, kitted out with a widebody set and a race-inspired theme. It has also shown off a 1965 Ford Mustang “Ballistic” and another custom ’65 Mustang convertible. In 2017, Ringbrothers took a 1956 Ford F-100, named Clem 101 to the show, deviating from its propensity for Mustangs, but this year, they’re back in the pony car camp with the new 1969 Ford Mustang “Patriarc.”

This classic Mustang boasts a modern high-performance drivetrain and a chassis to handle it. It features a myriad of custom touches only achieved through digital design and modern technologies, employing the use of 3D printing, aerospace-grade composite and alloy components. Ringbrothers says that “thousands” of hours of work went into the design of this 1969 Ford Mustang, making it the ultimate pony car.

According to the organization, this Mustang is “built to play in the wind,” thanks to its minimized rear-end drag and “groundbreaking” aerodynamic innovation. It’s not short on power, either, employing a Ford Performance Aluminator 5.2L XS V8 powerhouse. Its power meets the pavement by way of a six-speed manual transmission. As far as the interior goes, Ringbrothers says it’s completely custom, making it “one unique pony.”

Unfortunately, there’s only one picture of this custom Mustang, but we’ll be sure to keep an eye out for more after its reveal at SEMA 2022. In fact, it will be on display as part of the Centerforce booth, No. 23813, in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center on November 1st, 2022. It’s set to make its debut at 11:30 a.m. local time.

    The Ring brothers are one of the best car builders that I have seen.
    I would love to see ford make the mustangs with a deep dish wheel and wider tires.
    Like a 255 or 265x35x 19 or 20 front and a 325 x 30 or 35x 19 or 20 wheel
    Wheel 19 or 20 x 9 front and a 19 or 20 inch x 12 inch wheel rear.
    I would love to go to ford headquarters and talk to ford executive’s and designers and help develop a special scca trans am road racing edition street every day car like saleen, Shelby, roush ect. A car a little wider, and a little longer.

    That ’56 has a ’54 grille up front. My least favorite among the ’53-’56 grilles.

    I have a 1966 Mustang convertible (289) I bought April 13, 1966, and I WOULD NOT TRADE IT FOR ANY CAR THAT WAS PRODUCED BEFORE THEN OR ANY CAR PRODUCED AFTER THAT!! If I need any other transportation, I can jump in my 2004 Mustang and drive it. Thanks prior Ford executives!!! FORD had a good thing going in the late 50s and early to mid 60 and then they screwed it up!!! I’ll drive Baby Blue (66) and Silver (04) too until I am gone from this world.
