Ring Brothers Mustangs at Barrett-Jackson - Click above for high-res image gallery

We've been fans of the Ring Brothers since we first laid eyes on their Reactor Mustang at the SEMA Show back in 2006. The quality of the materials used and the bespoke designs made it perhaps the most beautiful classic Mustang we've ever seen. Since then they have followed up with the RAZOR Camaro and Ford Fairlane Afterburner, both equally impressive cars.

While it probably takes the Ring Borthers hundreds if not thousands of hours to build each car, but bidders at Barrett-Jackson had the chance to immediately get their hands on not one but two Ring Brothers creations. The Reactor Mustang as well as another '67 Fastback nicknamed "Copperback" were both up for sale at no reserve. The Reactor Mustang topped out at $253,000 and the Copperback went home to a new buyer for $159,000, both bought well in our opinion. For more details on each Mustang just follow the jump.

VEHICLE DESCRIPTIONS:

"Copperback" - Ring Brothers created this Mustang custom known as "COPPERBACK". Copperback was selected by Jack Roush as the National Winner of the Goodguys 2007 "Ford in a "Ford" Award. Nestled under the hood is a 427cid Fuel Injected Roush Racing engine with aluminum heads developing 560hp. Power is transmitted through a heavy duty Tremec 5-speed transmission. Large 6-piston Baer brakes are on all four wheels and the level of the ride is controlled by Air Ride Technology. Suspension is by Alston and the steering rack by Total Control. The stainless exhaust system is dual and side-exiting. The interior features charcoal leather Recaro seats, Rockford Fosgate acoustic audio system, tilt steering with Momo wheel, Momo pedals, power windows, power doors, custom dash and gauges, custom console and roll bars. The beautiful copper paint is accented by the "black-out" hood treatment with the Copperback name airbrushed on the hood surface. Carbon Fiber components including side vents and rear tail panel. Unique side scoops were created, door handles were shaved, a roof centerline crease has been developed, a special trunk and spoiler fabricated, a special hood and side exhaust ports molded into the rear lower quarters. Goodyear low profile 19" tires are mounted on black-centered custom wheels.

"Reactor" - This '67 Mustang fastback, built by the Ringbrothers, is known as the "Reactor" and was personally unveiled and autographed by Jack Roush in the Roush Performance booth at the 2006 SEMA show. The chassis of this '67 has been updated in every way imaginable, beginning with a Total Control front suspension, belly pan support brace and subframe connectors. It contains 15" Baer rotors, 6-piston calipers, 19x8 forged front wheels, 19x11 rear wheels and sports high performance tires. The rear is suspended by an Air Ride Technologies AirBAR system that laterally controls movement as well as providing hookup and that all-important visual stance. The underside of this Mustang is highly detailed. Under the hood you can find a wealth of specially fabricated components and the Roush 427 IR powerhouse, a trick eight-stack fuel injected setup, along with CNC polished and ported heads. Has a Tremec 5-speed transmission. The interior starts out with a 1-piece aluminum/fiberglass headliner, alterations continue within a custom console and dash. The olive-green Italian leather and graphite wool carpet is right in keeping with the rest of the interior. Custom made door panels were created and nickel plated trim was added for a richer look. The "Reactor" contains many unique details, from the raised crease running down the center of the body, to a split rear window, hand built rocker panels, rolled fenders and carbon-fiber additions. Numerous custom bezels and trim pieces were created specifically for this Mustang adding detail to this Chernobyl Green '67 Fastback.

      I'm more of an F-body fan when it comes that era, but god damn I have always been in love with Mustang fastbacks!

      I think I'd spontaneously orgasm if I drove one.... I'm damn close now, sitting right here looking at them.

      Jesus, these cars are so sharp looking and shiny that they almost look fake.

      The Ring brothers build some stunning cars. They may not be as well known as Chip Fosse, but when it comes to build quality they are second to none.

      My favorite is the Red Mustang, it looks less gaudy of the two and a bit more subtle.

      The attention to detail is indeed beautiful, but I find the engine bay a bit boring, and the engine choice--a 427 Roush Crate is a bit old.


      I'd like the idea of them taking a '60's Ford Motor with Hilborn Injection (427 SOHC Aluminum block w/ 6 spd anyone?) and installing Electronic Fuel Injection and redesigning the engine so that it looks authentic/wacky cool and can still go like hell!
