Revology Cars, the Florida-based company reproducing classic Mustangs from the 1960s, has hit a production milestone, assembling their fiftieth vehicle. First launched in 2014, the company, headquartered in Orlando, is authorized to create licensed versions of Ford’s iconic ponycar. Their current stable of offerings include 1966 through 1968 GT and Shelby GT350, GT350H and GT500 versions.
The created cars use all-new licensed parts and pieces and are powered by late model 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engines. Customers can also choose between a six-speed manual and automatic transmissions, as well as a whole host of other modern upgrades and bespoke custom touches. The cars are a great solution for enthusiasts who want the nostalgia of the past but paired with the latest and greatest in automotive innovation and performance.
Rolling in Five-Oh
The celebratory fiftieth vehicle is a licensed reproduction 1966 Shelby GT350 in striking Candy Apple Red with Wimbledon White LeMans stripes. Under the hood is a 435-horsepower 5.0-liter V8. The interior is drastically different from what was stock, being wrapped in Porsche Nappa leather with woold carpeting and brushed aluminum dash and console trim.
Other goodies include a 7″ Pioneer head unit and JL Audio premium sound system.
Two Trick Ponies
The vehicle’s owner, Peter Gilgan, is no stranger to Revology’s rides, already having another one of their Mustangs. “This car is a pleasure to drive and certainly a pleasure to look at. Just ask me or any one of the hundreds of people who stare at it when I park it in the street.” Gilgan should know; this is his second Revology vehicle. “I didn’t think it could be any better than my first Revology ‘Stang, but this car is loaded with improvements.”
“The Revology Shelby GT350 is fast and fun to drive, but also reliable and comfortable enough to be driven daily,” says Tom Scarpello, the company’s founder. “Original 1960s Shelby GTs are rarely if ever used for transportation nowadays.”
No Pulling On the Reins
Despite the achievement, the Revology team isn’t slowing down. Cars number 51 through 53 have already been built with many more in the works. As of now, the company has a backlog of several months on top of an estimated build time of six months. Customers ranged from buyers across the U.S., Europe and Asia.
