A 1200HP Chevy Blazer K5 ‘Bully’ by Ringbrothers

Ringbrothers have literally ventured into uncharted terrain with their state-of-the-art muscle-packed restomod. One of four habits from this year’s Wisconsin-based store, and certainly the longest, the car named “Bully” is a 1,200-hp (1,217 ps) supercharged Chevrolet Blazer.

As a result of more than 8,500 hours of work, Ringbrothers’ Bully started the life of the K5 Blazer in 1972, but there is little left of the truck that its first owner picked up from a dealership when Nixon was in the White House. While the main body sections are painted in elegant Bashful Blue metallic, your eyes are immediately drawn to the custom hood with machined supercharger vents, and carbon-fiber fender vents providing coverage for the massive 18″ x 12″ HRE wheels shrouded in massive 325-section. Cooper Discoverer tyres.

But the real visual draw is Upholstery Unlimited’s custom leather interior whose seats are constructed with cross-legged leather straps attached to four surround frames, matching Ringbrothers’ carbon fiber steering wheel and Dakota digital hardware.

The hottest engine available at the factory Chevy Blazer in 1972 was a 350 cu-in (5.7 liter) V8 that produced 175 hp (177 hp) and 290 lb-ft (293 Nm), and many Blazers have less than 110 hp (112 hp). ). Not this one, though. Wegner Motorsports’ 6.8 liter LS3 engine crowns a 2.9 liter Whipple supercharger and sends 1,200 horsepower to all four wheels via a Bowler Tru-Street GM 4L80E transmission and a Dana 44 and 60 axle. These axles connect to a custom Roadster Shop chassis with four-link suspension that uses two Fox coils at each corner, and braking is handled by six-piston Baer brakes at each end.

“This project was supposed to stand out, both figuratively and literally,” added Jim Ring. “Our partners HRE Wheels, Whipple Superchargers, Motul, Painless Wires, Miller Welding, Holley and many more have enabled us to see this build from concept to production. We are honored to work with the best in our industry and we thank them for their continued support.”
