Ringbrothers AMC Javelin AMX

Prestone unveiled a one-of-a-kind, 1972 AMC Javelin AMX during this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas. Plans for the custom Ringbrothers build began at SEMA 2016 and Prestone has been very eager to reveal the incredible vehicle to an enthusiastic audience.

Jim and Mike Ring have treasured the Javelin since childhood and knew immediately that it would be perfect for Prestone, another brand they are passionate about. With only 3,220 ever produced, this car embodies American muscle car history and automotive innovation.

The build includes a custom four-link in the rear with a 12-bolt GM axle and modernized braking system. Additionally, the car is powered by an 1,100 horsepower 4.5 liter Whipple supercharged engine, and received several upgrades to the hood and fenders. The overall car was painted in a yellow tone, as tribute to Prestone’s iconic color.

With only 12 months to complete the build, the Ringbrothers were hard at work bringing this build to life. Utilizing 3D scanning and 3D printing for the first time, they employed the latest technology to make plugs and molds.

This innovation allowed them to speed up the build process as the Rings raced against the clock.  Additionally, they used their trusted brand, Prestone, to get the car road ready.

“When we began our partnership with Mike and Jim last year, we entrusted them with a high stakes project that not only had a quick turnaround but would also be an integral part of our 90th Anniversary,” said Randy Fisher, Prestone’s VP of Marketing. “This Javelin AMX has far surpassed any of our expectations and we look forward to having it in our collection for the next 90 years.”

The build was located in Prestone’s booth throughout the SEMA Show and will also lead the company’s 90th anniversary Rally in Los Angeles, before the Los Angeles Auto Show. Make sure to follow the Prestone Javelin’s journey over the coming months!
