The Ringbrothers Patriarc Is A 580-Horsepower Ford Mustang Mach 1 Restomod

Classic Cars / 1 Comment

The entire body is brand new, widened to accommodate 20-inch tires.

Ringbrothers is in the process of unveiling each of its four SEMA 2022 builds.

This is the second one, which was preceded earlier this week by the brand's 1,200 horsepower Blazer. Ringbrothers calls this Ford Mustang Mach 1 the "Patriarc."

A total of 5,000 hours went into building this 1969 icon, and it's undoubtedly one of the cleanest Mustang restomods we've ever seen. However, this is much more than that, with Ringbrothers even going so far as to call the Patriarc a "complete reimagining" of the Mach 1.

Under the hood sits a Ford Performance Aluminator 5.2-liter V8 producing 580 horsepower and 445 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the tires via a Bowler Tremec T-56 Magnum six-speed manual transmission.

At the back, massive 20x13-inch HRE wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires will hopefully keep you pointed in the right direction. Out front, those HREs measure 19x10 inches. Just behind those sit Penske Racing Shocks' RS Edition coil overs. Unlike the original Mach 1, that means independent front and rear suspension.

Like the Bully Chevrolet Blazer we mentioned above, Baer provides braking with six-piston calipers and 14-inch rotors.

The body of the original Mach 1 is long gone. Ringbrothers started with a Fast Track Stage III chassis from Roadster Shop and converted the Mach 1 to a unibody car. It was also widened by two inches to make room for the enormous tires. The car is also longer by two inches and taller by another two inches.

In light of that, a new floor pan had to be made, in addition to a new transmission tunnel. These formed the basic architecture for the interior, which Ringbrothers says is entirely bespoke, and comes with a roll cage.

Avant-Gard Interiors handled the new interior upholstery and trim with a new climate control system and new gauges to match. Like the Bully Blazer, this car also has a custom carbon fiber steering wheel made by Ringbrothers.

There's more carbon scattered throughout the interior and exterior of the car, including rear side coops, a hood, and a rear diffuser. Ringbrothers also goes to the trouble of machining and 3D printing bespoke parts like the side-marker lights and wheel.

Ringbrothers has not yet said whether more of these insane Mach 1s will be made, but we're sure this one will be making plenty of appearances.
