Ringbrothers, an aftermarket shop from Spring Green, Wisconsin is clearly trying to outrun Hennessey in terms of extreme builds, the only difference is they have a knack for classics.
We remember projects such as the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro G-Code, or the fact that last year during the SEMA show in Las Vegas they brought no less than three bonkers concepts for the public’s delight. This year is going to be the same – they’re bringing to the party a 1969 Dodge Charger, a 1972 AMC Javelin, and a 1956 Ford F-100 pickup. All three of them will star in front of the worldwide audience of the SEMA show on October 31, each showing that old doesn’t mean less powerful.
The 1969 Dodge Charger “Defector” is the first Mopar project they have undertaken, with an excess of 4,700 hours of custom body work – body is shorter by two inches, chassis is longer by three and under the bonnet resides a Wegner Motorsports 6.4-liter Hemi V8, mated to a Flowmaster exhaust, custom HRE Wheels, and a custom paint color called “Green on the Other Side.” The 1956 Ford F-100 has been affectionately called “Clem 101,” coming with a 5.0-liter Coyote V8, Flowmaster exhaust, a custom-built box frame, widened fenders, and new HRE wheels, with the project also getting a bespoke “Speedy P Green” color.
The star attraction is certainly going to be the 1972 Prestone AMC Javelin AMX, dubbed “Defiant!” It’s the first Ringbrothers AMC build in complete carbon fiber, while under the carbon fiber hood resides a Wegner Motorsports 6.2-liter Hellcat engine, which has been massaged to over 1,000 horsepower (745 kilowatts) thanks to a Whipple 4.5-liter supercharger. Other noteworthy features include the Flowmaster exhaust, HRE wheels, Baer brakes, and a stylish “Jalop Gold” finish.
