For the 4th time, a Ringbrothers vehicle has been awarded with a prestigious Goodguys award. This year, the 1965 fastback Mustang dubbed Blizzard, has won Muscle Machine of the Year. A Muscle Machine is defined by Goodguys as a Muscle Car that has been modified to perform at a high level including engineering, handling, stance, body, and paint. The category is open to vehicle years 1960 through 1972.

 

We built Blizzard, a 1965 Mustang, for customer Dominick Farbo, who had a vision of a muscle machine that blended raw power with precise level of detailing. The build began with a carbon fiber roof, hood, doors, side scoops and rear bumper along with a one-off aluminum front bumper, quarter window gas filler and trimmed front fenders on the fastback body.

 

And what makes the Blizzard Mustang so special? Well, the 

devil is in the details like a highly modified 351-based 427cid V8 engine NASCAR Sprint Cup Series style engine build by Wegner Motorsports (producing 710hp), a Holley carburetor, Flowmaster Mufflers, a Be Cool radiator and fan setup, Royal Purple lubricants, a Bowler five-speed manual transmission, Baer brakes, and a John’s Industry differential. Blizzard also sports a set of HRE 560R forged wheels shod in Nitto Invo tires that measure 265 up front and 325 out back. detailing. The build began with a carbon fiber roof, hood, doors, side scoops and rear bumper along with a one-off aluminum front bumper, quarter window gas filler and trimmed front fenders on the fastback body.
 

To top it off, after hundreds of hours of planning and prep to subtly sculpt every line and curve of this beauty, we coated Blizzard in a BASF Glasurit Waterborne custom paint color dubbed “Blizzard White.”

 

Blizzard made her world-wide debut last year at the SEMA Show in the Global Finishing Solutions booth and has since traveled the nation as well as hitting the track at several Goodguys AutoCross events, which is fitting as the car is actually setup to handle as well as the Stock Cars that inspired its engine.

 

 

The award-winning car will also make an appearance at SEMA show this year. Blizzard will be sporting the newest Ringbrothers series HRE Wheels in the HRE booth #22359.
