The aftermarket specialists have decided to present themselves in front of the worldwide audience of the SEMA show in Las Vegas with the “Defector” – their first Mopar build.
Wisconsin-based Ringbrothers have presented their latest stunning creation – the Defector is a restomod 1969 Dodge Charger, their first Mopar product, and one that took them 4,700 hours to complete. Most of the work was needed to deliver the almost all-new body – as opposed to a factory ’69 Charger, Defector’s trunk is two inches shorter, while the total wheelbase has been lengthened three inches. The new bodywork is draped in a BASF color called “Greener On The Other Side,” and there’s also lots of chrome accenting.
The “chopping” brought new rocker rails and quarter panels, as well as a new suspension, a new subframe from Detroit Speed, updated rack-and-pinion steering, and a new four-link rear suspension setup. 19-inch wheels from HRE clamp over Baer brakes, with six-piston front pistons. And the cherry on top is a modern 6.4-liter Hemi V8, sitting under the hood modified by Wegner Motorsports and sporting a Flowmaster exhaust system for some muscle sound action. The interior is lightly customized with new upholstery and an Alpine sound system.
