Revology Ford Mustang: Old school, (almost) new technology

Revology Ford Mustang
Subscriptions & booklets

D he suffering is over. Anyone who only likes the first generation of the Ford Mustang can now consider themselves lucky. Revology's new cars look like they came straight from 1964.

They do; if a customer has such a model, he can have it restored by Revology. If not - and now it’s coming - he can order a brand new body in original quality and with a Ford license. It is made by the pony and muscle car specialist Dynacorn from California. Under the tin, the guys from Revology from the Sunshine State have done a lot with both variants; the technology is modern and probably a lot more reliable than it was 50 years ago.

Revology Mustang with 5.0-liter V8

The engine, however, does not come from the latest Mustang, but also from the Ford shelf: the five-liter V8 belongs to the so-called Windsor engine family. In the American system of measurement, it shows a corresponding 302 cubic inches. Its advantage: 'It is more compact than the brand new eight-cylinder,' says Revology. The new block would have only fit into the front of the first Mustang generation with the greatest effort.

Technically speaking, the Windsor engine is no longer the latest. After all, it has electronic fuel injection, 265 hp and 405 Nm maximum torque. The drive is coupled with a five-speed manual gearbox or - for cruising - with a four-speed automatic. Like the engine, the two transmission options come from the Parts collection from Ford. The power on the road brings a differential lock with an axle ratio of 3.70: 1. Other, shorter ratios are optional on the price list.

Disc brakes in a classic Ford Mustang

Further upgrades include ventilated disc brakes on all four wheels. Furthermore, driving dynamics freaks will appreciate that both the front and The rear axle has also been modified.

A McPherson construction works on the front axle in the Revology Mustang. The rear axle has a rigid axle guided on trailing arms with coil springs and Watt linkage. This should make the Mustang more agile than the original, and the new power steering should do its part. For better visibility in the dark, the Revology Mustang uses LED technology in its classic headlight design.

Bluetooth, Keyless-Go and Quarter-Mile-Stopwatch

The interior is also getting some updates. You can now pair your cell phone with Bluetooth in a car that looks like it is 50 years old. There is also no ignition lock - this Mustang comes with Keyless-Go. The engine starts when the driver has the key somewhere. Nice gimmick: a stopwatch that measures the required time from 0 to 60 miles per hour, or the personal record for the quarter mile.

Interested parties now have to be brave - or suffer: the Revology Ford Mustang costs in the fastback version as a complete production around 120,000 US dollars (approx. 113,000 euros). The convertible is in the price list for 122,000 US dollars, which corresponds to 115,000 euros. Additional equipment can be ordered as an option: a GT package for $ 1,500, for example. Or a high-quality stereo system for $ 2,500 - if that's what you need in a car with an American five-liter V8.
