Revology Cars Announces 1968 Mustang Fastback Replica
Options include Special Edition Bullitt Package
At 2017 Amelia Island Concours last week Revology Cars announced its latest edition to its growing line of replica Mustangs that were on display—the 1968 Mustang GT 390 Fastback. Starting with a Dynacorn body and using the highest quality parts, including in-house designed and fabricated pieces, the Revology Cars replica Mustangs offer classic styling with modern performance, safety, and reliability for a unique and fun driving experience for discriminating buyers.
In just two and one-half years, this Florida-based venture has grown from an idea into a real company with 14 full-time employees and clients in eight countries. Tom Scarpello, Revology’s founder and CEO, sees significant growth ahead. “We are expanding our capacity and developing new models,” said Scarpello. “We invested significant resources in the development of our 1964½-1970 Mustang platform, and will leverage that investment by rolling out new versions over time.”
With Scarpello’s OEM background (he spent 17 years with Ford, including the Special Vehicle Team responsible for the SVT Mustang, SVT Lightning, and more) the assembly line approach that Revology Cars uses for production of the replica Mustangs means its low-volume production line can produce a completely integrated vehicle at a competitive price in this market. For example, unlike a traditional restoration shop that works on many different types of vehicles simultaneously, Revology’s factory only builds reengineered Mustangs and features an assembly line layout to improve productivity and quality. Scarpello says that gives his team a huge competitive advantage. “When you build twenty 1966 Mustangs in a row, you get pretty good at it.”
The new 1968 Mustang GT 390 Fastback features the same powertrain, suspension, and interior updates as other Revology Cars Mustangs, including the 5.0L DOHC “Coyote” modular engine, five-speed manual transmission, unequal length A-arm front suspension and 3-link rear, Wilwood disc brakes, and more. The 1968 Mustang GT 390 Fastback will be available in standard 1968 interior and exterior colors. A Special Edition Feature Package will recreate the look and feel of the 1968 movie star car “Bullitt”, including Highland Green paint, Shelby steering wheel, body color trim, blacked out taillight panel, and more.
