I was hoping more companies would adopt Singer and Icon's methods of building insanely great retro vehicles upgraded with modern comforts and technology. It looks like Florida-based Revology is the next builder to join those ranks, and they're doing it with some classic American iron.
At this weekend's Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance, Revology shocked the world by unveiling their hand-built restomod 1960s Ford Mustang. The company was founded by former Ford Special Vehicle Team boss Tom Scarpello, so you know they love them some Mustangs.
You get a classic Mustang body restored to its original greatness or an all-new replica Dynacorn body, coupled with a MacPherson strut front suspension, three-link rear suspension, power steering, disc brakes all around, a 3.70:1 limited slip differential and an electronically fuel injected mid-2000s 5.0-liter Windsor V8.
That engine is rated at 265 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque, and while it's not the barnstormer that the newer 5.0 is, it's got plenty of grunt for a Mustang body of this vintage.
The interior gets a few upgrades too, with a collapsable steering wheel, three-point seat belts, optional head restraints, LED lighting, keyless entry, plus Bluetooth connectivity and AUX and USB ports.
From the pics Revology put out, it looks like they did a fantastic job. From the outside you can barely tell it's a restomod unless you know what to look for. But like the Singer 911, none of this will come cheaply — the base price on one is $119,500 for the fastback and $122,000 for a premium convertible. You do get a one year bumper to bumper warranty and a three year powertrain warranty, which is nice.
It's an impressive effort from these guys. I look forward to seeing what's next from them.
