This is “CAGED,” the wild 1964 Ford Mustang that Ringbrothers turned into a one-off innovation that took over 4,200 hours to create.
When creating a Mustang unlike any other, Ringbrothers got a new chassis from the Roadster Shop and then repurposed it into a modular chassis. The chassis was then enlarged and lengthened by an inch and the Mustang was repainted in a shade known as BASF Glasurit “Burgundy Brave.”
Several unique parts are found across the CAGED body, including the custom-designed taillights, front grille, badges and emblems. It also features titanium trim and rests on a set of custom wheels from EVOD Industries that measure 18×9 front and 18×11 rear, wrapped in 245/40 front and 285/40 rear tires.
Ringbrothers designed custom floor pods for the vehicle, as well as a unique transmission tunnel and double-floor. It also rocks Penske Racing performance coils front and rear, as well as a 1.25-inch front sway bar with C6 Corvette end connections. The steering rack is sourced from Woodward while braking is provided by Baer components with six-piston calipers and 14-inch discs both front and rear.
A new engine was also installed, a Ford Performance 5.0-liter Coyote V8 with a custom-made hood, 10-speed automatic transmission, and a custom steering column. Ringbrothers also installed Flowmaster heads and a stainless steel Flowmaster exhaust system. A new fuel tank was also installed.
The interior of the CAGED Mustang has also been completely updated, and it is now fitted with a custom power steering, new Dakota Digital gauges and a Vintage Air Gen IV Magnum Evaporator climate control.
“Every piece of this vehicle has been touched up and updated with original design cues in mind, right down to the bezels of the iconic Mustang taillights, gas cap and horse emblems,” said Jim Ring, co-founder of Ringbrothers. “There are a lot of nuances that went into the design, and we are proud of that aspect of the design. Only an expert eye will be able to subtly discern the differences.”
