This 1965 Ford Mustang Gets the Carbon Fibre Treatment
Mike and Jim Ring aren’t strangers when it comes to working with carbon fibre as many of their builds have incorporated it to some degree. With the Fastback the ring brothers subtly widened the iconic shape of the car by 4 inches providing more contemporary proportions without being too overstated. The carbon fibre body work is hidden beneath a custom Waterborne paint colour aptly named “Spy Green.” although you can see glimpses of the black stuff if you look closely.
That strong lightweight carbon fibre shell houses the car’s 959 BHP supercharged V8 engine from Wegner Motorsports. A twin-Disc clutch makes driving the powerful Mustang a breeze with smooth engagement and high-torque holding capacity. All that power is sent through a custom driveshaft and into a Ford 9” rear end. Exhaust is expelled through headers with 2” primaries that were custom designed and built by Ringbrothers.
