Interesting site. It had to happen eventually - brand-new 1965 Mustangs with modern performance and creature comforts. Revology Cars is headed by Tom Scarpello, who ran Ford SVT from 1998 to 2004.

Any comments ....... ?

Just another restomod. I notice they appear to be using RRS F&R Suspension and brakes.

Yes, just another restomod, however titling (registration for us) would be a nightmare & I notice on their website they only talk about Florida, so assume their knowledge of titling in other states/countries is very limited ....

I googled "revology mustang" & heaps of sites but little discussion as it has only just been announced.

1/3rd of the cost on order (that buys the parts according to the website), another 1/3rd upon commencing production & the specs are then locked in (so assume that pays the labour) & final 1/3rd upon completion.

FOB Florida

So US$119,500 + freight. Imagine the luxury tax here in Oz & the registration dramas .......

It gives some great ideas for all of us. Looks good.

Isn't there a crowd in the US who 'rebuild' original bodies, maintaining an original vin number? That would be the easier way. But then it wouldn't be 'new'.

I like the idea but the price is a bit too scary for me.

That video is a bit of a waste really.
It's just showing two old cars driving along.

No mention of what they actually put in the cars. I bet they are just regular old Mustangs.

You can buy a whole new body from npd i think for US$15k. All you need to do is pop your plates off and onto the new body


Cheers, Tony.

And its not just the plates. VIN is also stamped into the inner guards.

Just had a look at the specs.
There is no mention of ABS, stability control etc.

Pretty sure that puts it to bed for bringing them here as new cars, aside from any other issues.

If you stamp it and keep your original vin plate nobody will ever know. And besides being illegal its probably safer than cutting and welding an old rusty body.

It's best to not speak of such things. There are also better ways than re stamping. You use a new body as a rust sectional repair. I will leave the rest to your imagination.

These guys in Sydney were keeping bodies on the shelf, literally. They had 2 67 fastbacks when I was there. I think they were about 17k.

"Isn't that the wrong way?"
