Revology Gears Up To Build Replicas Of The Original Shelby Mustang

The original Shelby Mustang of 1965 is probably already known to you. It’s what the world got when Carroll Shelby, avid racer and chicken farmer from Texas, set about fiddling with the first-generation Ford Mustang to make it go forth with much aplomb.

Now, that first Shelby Mustang is making a return – or a licensed replica of it is, anyway. It’s the handiwork of a Florida-based company named “Revology,” who earlier this year secured a license to build replicas of the 1966 Ford Mustang from factory-spec bodies.

The new-old 1965 Shelby Mustang will be built on the same line as that car in Orlando, Florida, although like that licensed replica, this car, too, will incorporate plenty of modern tech to enhance performance and comfort. Says Revology Cars Founder and President Tom Scarpello: “We carefully integrate modern technology to improve performance, reliability, durability, fuel economy, safety, and comfort, while retaining the essential character and style of the original design.”

The base price for a replica Shelby Mustang from Revology stands at $139,500, not counting any shipping, destination, or other extra fees. Of course, that’s already encroaching upon the typical auction price for a genuine, original Shelby Mustang GT350.

But then, that car isn’t powered by a modern 5.0-liter Ford V8, nor given air conditioning, power seats, and much, much more.
