It Took 4200 Hours to Build this 1964 Ford Mustang ‘CAGED’ from Ringbrothers

It’s “CAGED,” wild 1964 Ford Mustang which was transformed by Ringbrothers into a one-off piece that took over 4,200 hours to create.

To create a Mustang unlike any other, Ringbrothers purchased a new chassis from the Roadster Shop and then converted it back into a one-piece body. The body was then widened and lengthened by one inch, and the Mustang was repainted in a shade known as BASF Glasurit ‘Burgundy Brave’.

The CAGED body features a variety of unique details, including custom taillights, front grille, badges and emblems. It also features titanium trim and sits on a set of EVOD Industries custom wheels measuring 18×9 up front and 18×11 out back, shod in 245/40 front and 285/40 rear Continental tires.


Ringbrothers created custom floor panels for the car as well as a unique transmission tunnel and double floor. It also impresses with Penske Racing performance coilovers front and rear, and a 1.25-inch splined front sway bar with C6 Corvette trailing arms. The steering rack was sourced from Woodward and braking is provided by Baer components with six-piston calipers and 14-inch discs front and rear.

A new engine was also installed, namely a Ford Performance 5.0L Coyote V8 with custom engine cover, 10-speed automatic transmission and custom drive shaft. Ringbrothers also installed Flowmaster headers and a stainless steel Flowmaster exhaust system. A new fuel tank was also installed.

The interior of the CAGED Mustang has also been thoroughly upgraded and now features a custom steering wheel, new Dakota Digital gauges and a Vintage Air Gen IV Magnum Evaporator climate control system.

“Every detail of this car has been refined and updated with original design elements, right down to the iconic Mustang taillight surrounds, gas cap and running horse emblems,” Ringbrothers said co-founder Jim Ring. “There’s a lot of nuance that went into the design, and we take pride in that aspect of the build. Only an expert’s eye will be able to notice subtle differences.”
