Check out Ringbrothers’ latest restomod Dodge Charger
And yes, it does have a Hellcat crate engine. What a mighty thing
If you’re a regular on these pages, you’ll know that here at TG we’re big fans of the work Ringbrothers is doing in the restomod muscle car scene. Just have a look at these 2019 SEMA builds or this bonkers 1,036bhp AMC Javelin for context.
And then we come to its latest build. This one is a little more sensible than the Javelin but no less cool. It’s also equally as yellow. Result.
This is a 1969 Dodge Charger built for New Zealand-based racer and four-time Bathurst 1000 winner Greg Murphy. The Charger was treated to a complete rebuild, with the work starting in New Zealand before the shell was shipped to Ringbrothers in Wisconsin.
Once there, it was fitted with a Hellcat crate engine that Ringbrothers says is putting out an “impressive yet streetable” 707bhp. That’s connected to a Tremec six-speed manual gearbox and a Flowmaster exhaust that exits just behind the rear wheels.
Those wheels are custom HRE units, and there’s also a carbon fibre driveshaft, adjustable shocks and Baer six-piston brakes in the build.
