Ringbrothers has unveiled another one of their creations for the SEMA 2022 show, dubbed PATRIARC.” The new build pushes the limits of performance and aesthetics of one of America’s most iconic muscle cars, the 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1.
A complete reimagining of the original Ford Mustang Mach 1, PATRIARC has performance levels well beyond those thought possible in 1969. At the heart of PATRIARC is a Ford Performance Aluminator 5.2 XS engine producing 580 horsepower and 445 lb-ft of torque. All that power is transferred to a Strange Engineering 9” rear end via a Bowler Tremec T-56 Magnum six-speed manual equipped with a Centerforce clutch. Gargantuan levels of grip come from sticky and wide Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires wrapped around HRE Wheels G-Code Edition wheels. Penske Racing Shocks RS Edition coilovers and independent front and rear Roadster Shop FAST TRACK suspension team to keep the Mustang Mach 1 glued to the ground, with stopping power by Baer Brakes 14” rotors and six-piston calipers.
Wrapped around the Roadster Shop FAST TRACK Stage III chassis converted to unibody is the original Mustang Mach 1 body extensively modified by Ringbrothers. It was widened by two inches in every direction, and the rear quarters were lowered. A new floor pan and transmission tunnel were fabricated before a fully bespoke interior and a roll cage were installed. The interior features upholstery and trim work by Avant-Garde Interiors and includes a Vintage Air Gen IV Magnum climate control system, gauges by Dakota Digital, and a custom-made Ringbrothers “The Elder” carbon-fiber hoop steering wheel. Custom carbon-fiber components abound with rear side scoops that direct air over the taillights, along with a hood and rear diffuser made from high-strength material. Billet and 3D-printed parts include a one-off rear bumper, seat backs, armrests, door panels, emblems and a host of others.
