We caught up with a few projects from Ringbrothers at SEMA this year: a classic Ford Mustang body rendered in carbon fiber, and a De Tomaso Pantera-based concept that made us swoon.

12Ringbrothers shows 1965-66 Mustang fastback carbon fiber body

We covered one of Ringbrothers' more extreme SEMA builds yesterday, the De Tomaso Pantera-based ADRNLN, but if that well-executed but over-the-top Italian-American exotic is too much for you, then perhaps this Ring Brothers 1965 Ford Mustang fastback with a carbon-fiber body suits your tastes better.

This morning, ROUSH informed us that its booth would be occupied by this car, a 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback called "Reactor".
