This 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback Custom is an Eleanor Wannabe Pony

Restomodding is huge on the aftermarket scene, and few do it better than Ringbrothers. This Wisconsin-based store is known for creating some of the coolest resto-mod creations around, and we’ve covered a lot of Ringbrothers designs including the Hellcat-powered charger. And who can forget that amazing Chevy K5 Blazer? Ringbrothers are known for working on Ford Mustangs, both new and old, and this 1965 Mustang Fastback is the perfect example of what this shop can do when an owner has deep pockets.

Clearly inspired by Eleanor from Gone in 60 Seconds, the 1965 Fastback was built by Ringbrothers between 2004 and 2005 and is now for sale on Bring A Trailer. The car has been changed several times in the past two years and was eventually brought back to Ringbrothers in 2018. The Mustang’s spec sheet is as impressive as it looks: the exterior features custom gray metallic paint finished in 2019, and a carbon fiber roof. The carbon fiber hood gets a few scoops and that distinctive grille surround is matched with some custom sailboard trim. From the LED turn signal rims to the fender flares and the custom rear spoiler, there’s a lot of attention paid to the Stang. The car rolls on a set of Ringbrothers Forgeline multi-piece wheels that conceal a set of Baer tongs paired with 13-inch slotted and cross-drilled rotors.

The interior features leather-trimmed Recaro bucket seats, Ringbrothers interior trim, front runner air conditioning, Kenwood audio with Apple CarPlay, navigation, six speakers, a 12-inch subwoofer, and a subwoofer. Stewart-Warner’s hardware shows a speed of 160 mph and an 8k rpm tachometer. Probably the most compelling aspect of this design is the NRG steering wheel, which the previous owner added.

Under the hood, the Mustang packs a 408-cubic-inch Ford-Windsor V8 with aluminum cylinder heads, an Edelbrock intake manifold, and an 800 cfm dual-pump Holley carburetor. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a Tremec TKO-600 five-speed manual transmission and 3.55:1 rear end. The car has traveled less than 5,000 miles since it was first built, and the current bid is $100,000 with bidding ending in two days. Make your move.
