Ringbrothers Wins Battle of the Builders

Ringbrothers was awarded several top awards at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas for two out of four of its most recent unveiled custom builds – a 1948 Chevrolet Loadmaster dubbed “ENYO” and a 1972 Chevrolet K5 Blazer codenamed “BULLY,” the custom car builder and parts manufacturer announced.

The Wisconsin-based team’s build “ENYO” took home top honors for a variety of custom builder categories including winning SEMA’s Battle of the Builders 2022 Ultimate Builder Award. Accolades from the 2022 SEMA Show also include “HRIA’s Design and Innovation Award” and “BASF’s Best Paint Award.”

“Year after year, the SEMA Show gives us the opportunity to showcase what we are most passionate about,” said Mike Ring, co-owner of Ringbrothers. “This year, we had the opportunity to unveil four of our most extreme builds, both in design and execution. With the support from our partners and the enthusiast community, we continue to push the boundaries of custom car building which is what we originally set out to do.”

Built over 10,000 build hours, the 1,010-hp 1948 Chevrolet pickup “ENYO” is chopped, channeled and sectioned, and features CAD-designed trim and parts that were all cut in-house at the Ringbrothers machining facility, and mates a big-box truck cab and massive drivetrain on a low-slung, IndyCar-style chassis.

Meanwhile, “BULLY” expresses extensive restomod build features with a 6.8-liter LS3 V8 topped with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger and heavy-duty off-road suspension. The four-wheel-drive Blazer makes 1,200 horsepower. Other highlights of the labor-intensive and innovative build include a new chassis, four-link suspension, bespoke interior, heavy-duty drivetrain and many unique parts.
