A few weeks ago, we brought news of a 1967 Ringbrothers Mustang going up for sale on Bring a Trailer, and said it was going to sell for big money. Turns out, it sold for over a quarter of a million, at $265,000. That’s a lot, but this Mustang appears worth it, as no company does restomods quite like Ringbrothers.

This 1967 example, nicknamed Copperback thanks to its beautiful Copper Burnt Orange Metallic paint, was built back in 2007. Pretty much every body panel is new and remodeled. The side air intakes were widened and reshaped, while the bumpers were shortened. Up front, there’s a new grille and facia design, while the back has a subtle ducktail and rear-side exit exhausts. The hood and rear trunk panel are carbon.
The next lucky owner will certainly have fun driving this thing around, with a Roush Performance 427 cubic inch V8 under the hood. Upgrades include a Dart Iron Eagle block with aluminum cylinder heads, an individual throttle body fuel injection system. It should sound great as well, with ceramic-coated Magnaflow exhaust headers and a heat shield-wrapped 3” exhaust system with SpinTech mufflers. Power or torque outputs aren’t specified, but it’s got to be plenty.
It’s not all about straight line speed either, with many chassis and handling upgrades. There are Ridetech adjustable coilovers at all four corners, Michelin Pilot Sport tires, and Baer 6S monoblock calipers.
The interior is just as much a work of art as the exterior. The caramel leather with aluminum accents is a classic combination against the exterior paintwork. It has also been modernized with a Kenwood touchscreen head unit and Rockford Fosgate surround sound system.
With all of these modifications and upgrades, we wouldn’t even be surprised if the Ringbrothers Mustang sold closer to $300,000 than it did. Hopefully whoever bought it uses it on the road, rather than letting it sit in a garage.
