Classic Mustang reborn with a modern twist
Dearborn, MI – One of America’s best-loved cars, the original Ford Mustang, is being reborn. Revology Cars, founded by Tom Scarpello, formerly head of Ford’s Special Vehicle Team, will produce versions of classic cars, including the Mustang, that feature modern technology and features.
Auto industry veteran Scarpello says: “I love classic cars, but I don’t love the way they drive. A lot of people agree with me, judging by the exploding interest in ‘restomods’ (classic cars updated with modern components to improve performance and driveability).”
Scarpello, whose industry career includes senior posts at Ford, Jaguar, Nissan and Infiniti, stresses that building a proper restomod is much more complicated than a typical street rod. “To do it right,” he says, “you need to take a disciplined engineering and manufacturing approach, similar to the way OEMs build cars.”
According to Scarpello, classic automobile enthusiasts used to value originality above all else. “Today, however, consumer expectations have advanced and people are finding that carefully and professionally modified classic cars are an exciting alternative,” he says. “If the car is built right, the market potential for this type of vehicle is very significant.”
