A few weeks back, we posted about the upcoming episode of the unveiling of a 1972 Ford Ranchero that’s owned by DUB Magazine’s co-founder Myles Kovacs on the new automotive show “Leepu & PitBull” on the History Channel. Now we have photos and video clips of what the Ranchero looked like before and the beast it is now thanks to Leepu & Pitbull! Part of the transformation was a sick set of Forged SV56 Savini Wheels that really set off its aggressive exterior and adds a bit of style to the reinvented ride that was unveiled at the 2015 New York Auto Show. Peep the video and photos below to see the transformation.
History Channel’s new show, “Leepu & Pitbull” will feature a fresh set of Savini Forged SV56 wheels slammed on a 1972 Ford Ranchero that’s owned by DUB Magazine’s co-founder Myles Kovacs for its second episode airing on tonight, June 30, 2015.
Designed and built by Leepu and PitBull Motors, the crew only had four weeks to turn a rusty 1972 Ford Ranchero into a souped-up custom car that was unveiled at the 2015 New York Auto Show during an exclusive press conference earlier this year. To create a show-worthy custom, master mechanic Steve PitBull and world renowned Bangladeshi car designer Leepu added some Forged wheels in our eye-catching SV56-C 24×9.5 front and 24×15 rear, with a deep matte and gloss black finish.
“When DUB Magazine reached out to us about the Ford Ranchero project, we were thrilled to be part of the build,” says Tony Madrigal, marketing director here at Savini Wheels. “We chose the SV56 style because to enhance the classic lines of the new widebody Ranchero.”
To see the entire build process and the unveiling of the original custom, tune in to Episode Two of “Leepu & PitBull,” which airs on tonight at 10 pm, right after “Counting Cars” on the History Channel.
