Gary Bowers owns Producers Supply Co., an oilfield supply company in Waynesburg, PA. Not long ago, Gary was visiting his local Ford dealership to purchase a few new work trucks. He wanted to update his fleet with trucks that would match his corporate colors of orange, black and white. While in the showroom, he spotted a hot, new orange Shelby GT500 and knew he had to have it. Rather than drive his new Shelby home, Gary had it sent directly to the Ringbrothers custom Hot Rod shop in Spring Green, WI.
The Ringbrothers are known for their extreme custom creations such as Kona, Reactor and Copperback – three amazing 1967 Mustangs. Ringbrothers is also the first custom car builder in 14 years to have won two back-to-back Goodguys Street Machine of the Year Awards.
Gary Bowers sent his new Shelby GT500 to Ringbrothers with the intention of giving the car a custom and unique look, but emphasize the colors of his company. He also wanted to increase the overall performance of the car.
Mike and Jim Ring started under the hood, where they installed a Kenne Bell supercharger to pump the horsepower to 600 at the wheels. To help glue that power to the ground, they swapped out the stock suspension with a kit from Eibach.
