Last summer, we took a closer look at Revology Cars, a builder of Ford Mustang restomods created by Tom Scarpello, the former Marketing & Sales Manager for Ford’s Special Vehicle Team (SVT). Scarpello has built dozens of amazing Mustangs since starting Revology back in 2015, consisting of seven different models. This particular example is a 1967 Shelby GT350 restomod and just so happens to be the company’s 80th build.
The gorgeous 1967 Shelby GT350 restomod is finished in Rapid Red – a color available on the 2020 Mustang – with Raven Black Le Mans stripes and a black Porsche Nappa leather interior. Despite its many modern accruements, the Shelby rides on a set of classic American Torq Thrust wheels that have been painted black and frame a set of red brake calipers.
Pop the hood, and you’ll find Ford’s third-generation 5.0L Coyote V8, which produces 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque and is mated to a Tremec T56 XL six-speed manual transmission. Those that want more can get it from Revology’s GT500 offering, which adds a supercharger to the mix for a much healthier 710 horsepower output.
Scarpello also takes the time to discuss Revology’s build process in the video, which clearly sets it apart from the competition. The vast majority of work on these cars takes place in-house, including the paint and bodywork, which gives the company more control over the process. Certain things, like rear axle assemblies, are still sourced from suppliers, but they are built to Revology’s specifications and closely inspected before being installed in a vehicle.
That sort of attention to detail is what makes Revology’s Mustang restomods so special, and its obsessive attention to detail is apparent with each build that comes out of its shop. And that’s precisely why it has also earned the trust of Ford Motor Company and Shelby American, which have granted Revology the status of being a manufacturer of officially licensed products for those brands.
