The Ringbrothers are known for their epic American muscle car restorations; the newest creation is no exception. It brings back the 1969 Dodge Charger with extra design and performance tweaks to put it on anyone’s dream car list. Nicknamed the “Tusk,” this particular Dodge Charger uses the legendary Mopar Hellephant engine, sending over 1,000 ponies to the rear wheels.
Ringbrothers 1969 Dodge Charger Tusk: Details
Jim and Mike Ring meticulously engineered the 1969 Dodge Charger Tusk to merge timeless design with cutting-edge performance. The limited edition Mopar Hellephant engine has been mated to a six-speed Bowler Tremec T-56 Magnum manual transmission. That sends power to a bespoke carbon-fiber driveshaft, which gives the rear wheels plenty of energy to launch this beast of a muscle car off the line.
As for the overall design of the Tusk, the classic Dodge Charger body shape is complimented with a carbon-fiber front section, a custom hood featuring machined billet scoop grilles, and unique front and rear bumpers. The car receives an enhancement to its aggressive posture thanks to the narrowed bumpers along with a custom-designed underbody panel and reshaped rear quarter-end caps. On the inside, the Tusk, sits in the lap of modern luxury, with an entirely custom leather interior, carbon-fiber console, and the fantastic “pistol grip” shifter, further accentuating the ‘Merica-based car.
Once again, Ringbrothers attention to detail shines with Tusk Edition HRE Wheels, Fox RS SV coilovers, and Baer Brakes Extreme 6S six-piston calipers, all contributing to the car’s glorious appearance. We can’t wait to see what the next project to come from the Ringbrothers garage is going to be; whatever it is, it should be pretty clear by now that it’s going to be epic, and of course, if it has a Hellephant engine under the hood, we know no one is about to complain; especially as the Hemi engines will be exclusively for builds like this one starting next year, which will make them all that more special.
