The standard engine in the Revology 1968 Mustang GT 2+2 Cobra Jet is the supercharged Ford/ROUSH Performance 5.0L Ti-VCT “Coyote” DOHC V8, rated at 710HP. This engine makes massive power when prompted, yet is docile and easy to drive in stop-and-go traffic.


Choose between a six-speed manual and an electronically controlled ten-speed automatic transmission, both with overdrive for effortless highway cruising and excellent fuel mileage.

Performance Brake Package

The Mustang GT is equipped with high performance power brakes featuring 12.88” slotted and ventilated rotors w/ 6 piston front and 4 piston rear calipers.

Carbon Fiber Driveshaft

Carbon fiber is the choice for high performance driveline applications due to its high strength and light weight, but it is also more forgiving than steel or aluminum, which serves to reduce driveline harshness, improving the overall level of refinement of the vehicle and making it more enjoyable to drive.

Exhaust System

The stainless steel dual exhaust system is built by Borla to our specification. Tuned specifically for the Ford Coyote engine, it delivers a soft burble at idle and is quiet with no drone at cruise speed. The optional Performance Exhaust system features lower restriction mufflers to provide more power and a more aggressive tone.


A precisely tuned double wishbone suspension and power rack and pinion steering deliver modern handling.


Power assisted features abound, including windows, seats, steering, and brakes. Keyless entry and push button start with rolling code encryption enhance security. The Revology-designed full-length console features genuine Flat Cut Walnut trim and two cupholders, and the premium bucket seats are trimmed in Nappa leather. LED instrument and interior lighting enhances visibility and convenience at night.


LED reverse and parking lamps, tail lamps w/sequential turn signals, exterior door handle courtesy lamps, and optional LED headlamps provide improved visibility at night as well as a distinctive appearance, day or night.

The Revology paint process consists of an epoxy primer, urethane primer, basecoat, and clearcoat. We use exclusively Glasurit automotive paint finishes for the ultimate in appearance and durability. Contemporary OEM colors from Ferrari, Porsche, Lexus, and others also available.

Hood Hinges

All Revology Mustangs and Shelby GTs feature aluminum hood hinges with nitrogen filled struts for stable, quiet, and reliable operation—a notable improvement over the wobbly, squeaky 1960s hinges.


Revology 1967 and 1968 Mustangs and Shelby GTs feature modern door hinges and door latch mechanisms.  While it doesn’t sound very sexy, these modern components make the car much more enjoyable to use.  No more squeaks and creaks as you open the doors—they open smoothly and quietly, and close with a solid “thunk”.  When closed, the precisely latched doors contribute to the overall rigidity of the body.    

Decklid Latch

If you’ve ever owned a 1960s automobile, you are familiar with having to slam the decklid multiple times to get it to stay shut.  To address this problem, we’ve equipped all Revology Mustangs and Shelby GTs with a modern decklid latch and striker mechanism.  The decklid can be opened using the key fob remote, via a release button located on the dash, or via an emergency release.    

Polyurethane Bonded Windshield and Backlite Glass

All Revology Mustangs and Shelby GTs come standard with polyurethane bonded windshield and backlite (fastback models) glass.   Polyurethane bonding is the way all modern automotive glass is secured not only because it seals better than rubber but also because it makes the glass part of the body structure, increasing body rigidity.  Increased rigidity reduces noise, vibration, and harshness, but most importantly improves safety, as the stiffer roof is less likely to crush in a roll over and the glass won’t pop out and allow passengers to be ejected in a collision.  

100% Steel Unibody

Modern cars all feature unibody, or monocoque, construction because it is stiffer and lighter than body on frame.  For a unibody vehicle, the body provides the structure for the powertrain and chassis, which makes it much more important that it is designed and built properly.  To ensure the structural rigidity and tight tolerances that allow the packaging of powerful new engines, we reengineered the Mustang unibody with added structural components and additional welds for increased strength.  We build all Revology unibodies in-house, using locating fixtures, jigs, and templates to ensure proper dimensional control and sophisticated automated spot-welding equipment that senses the thickness and composition of metal that is being welded and applies the proper amount of current to ensure good quality welds.   

Charging System

A convenient 4.3A on board trickle charger connects via a magnetic contact under the rear bumper to keep your battery charged even while the car is not driven for long periods.


Three point front seat belts, a dual circuit braking system, fuel shutoff inertia switch, collapsible steering shaft, and optional front seat head restraints help protect occupants in the event of a collision.

Entertainment Systems

The standard audio system looks like the original AM radio but features AM/FM, Bluetooth, and an AUX input. The optional Pioneer 7″touch screen head units feature Bluetooth, reverse camera, voice recognition, Apple Car Play, and Android Auto and can be ordered with or without navigation and SiriusXM. The optional FOCAL Audio package features component speakers, an 720w 8 channel class AB amplifier, and a 10” enclosed subwoofer. 

Leather and Alcantara™ Trim Packages

All Revology interiors are cut, sewn, and fitted by hand, including seats, floor mats, dash pad, door panels, quarter trim panels, and sun visors. This old-world craftsmanship takes time but allows freedom to choose materials and colors to ensure not only a flawless appearance but also everyday durability. We use only automotive grade leather and other materials from premium OEMs including Porsche, Mercedes, and Ferrari.

Wool Carpeting

Ultra-rich 100% wool German square weave carpeting w/ hand-sewn leather seams and bindings. Includes floor mats.

Fit and Finish

The Revology Mustang body is assembled with all-new steel panels. These panels are painstakingly fit by hand to ensure exceptional fit and flushness.

Hi, I'm Tom Scarpello of Revology Cars, and this is car number 145, a 1968 Mustang GT Cobra Jet in Acapulco Blue Metallic with Black Nappa leather interior. Today, I'm going to take you on a walk around of this car, and we're going to go for a drive. Let's get started!

Okay, 1968 Mustang GT Cobra Jet. So, what is a Cobra Jet? Well, back in 1968, the Cobra Jet was the biggest, baddest Mustang available short of the Shelby's. I say biggest. It was the biggest displacement engine that was ever put in a Mustang. 428 cubic inches, and it put out 335 gross horsepower. It was the fastest Mustang ever. In fact, Ford had to change their test equipment at the Arizona approving ground because it was the fastest car that they had ever tested there.

So, what is the Revology Cobra Jet? Well, we have this really awesome supercharged engine, 710 hp, that's in our Shelby GT500. We thought it would be cool to put it in the GT model. This is the first one, the first Revology 1968 Mustang GT Cobra Jet. So, let's take a close look at it.

We had to use a different hood to get the clearance for the supercharger. If you look right into the front of the hood, you can see all kinds of cool mechanical stuff going on. It kind of tips you off that there's something special under the hood. If you don't notice that, maybe you'll notice the Cobra Jet badge on the side of the scoop and the black stripe up the middle for the hood and cowl is also unique to the Cobra Jet models.

So, at the front, the fog lamps, the ‘68 grille treatment, LED headlamps, as with all Revology Mustangs, but these look very much like the old seal beams. Now, at the side, this car is equipped with Torque Thrust wheels, and these are a 17 x 9 and a half. And they're fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport tires. It's a 275 40 ZR 17, so lots of grip, really, really nice handling. At the rear of the car, everything here looks all original, with the exception of the exhaust tips, which obviously are a lot larger than the original quad tips.

So, any discussion of the Cobra Jet would be remiss without a discussion of the engine. And as I mentioned earlier, this is our 710 hp supercharged five-liter Ti-VCT, also affectionately known as the Coyote V8 engine. It's the same engine that goes into the Mustang. This one has a Roush supercharger and calibration.

Now, for us, really one of the major challenges that we have across the board at Revology Cars is the integration of modern technology into the vintage architecture. Because modern cars are much larger, the components themselves are much larger. This engine physically is much larger. And as you can see, it took a lot of work to package everything.

One of the challenges, specifically with the supercharged application, is getting it low enough in the car to where it will fit under a stock hood, or at least a hood that is like this one. That really, this has about the same clearance as the Shelby GT500 hood. And that requires use of an aluminum sub-frame that allows us to lower the engine slightly.

But then there's no place to put the oil filter. Now, a lot of people would just say, oh, we'll just put a shorter oil filter in, and you're fine. Well, but that's not how we do things at Revology. So, we engineered an external oil cooling system and an external oil filter location. So, the cooling system, actually, where the factory oil filter is located, you've got an adapter that then routes the oil through the external heat exchanger that's mounted here. So, it gets a lot of flow through the grille, and then it runs outside of the apron and under the fender. And we've got a large oil filter. It's actually a Ford diesel truck oil filter that has the flow characteristics that we need.

So, we've get, you know, really good flow and improves oil cooling, which is important because a supercharged engine generates more heat, and that means you need more cooling capacity. So, a lot of work went into that, but the result is outstanding, and it's definitely worth the effort. So, you've got a car that not only puts out the power, it does it reliably, it does it consistently. It doesn't overheat. The oil stays cool. You can have complete confidence taking it anywhere you want to go.

So, all of our supercharged cars get our heavy-duty driveline. We actually developed the heavy-duty driveline specifically for the supercharged application. And that consists of a carbon fiber drive shaft, 35 spline rear axles, a strange S-track, limited slip, a finned aluminum diff cover.

And on the manual transmission cars, you get a twin disc clutch and the overall feel of the car -- ergonomics is basically how the human interfaces with the machine. And it's so important. You drive some cars, and it feels like the steering was designed by a different team than the people who designed the brakes. Like, one is really soft and the other one's really hard or whatever. They just don't feel like they were integrated or designed together. And getting all those little details right, so that they're integrated and it all feels like a consistent package or consistent approach is so important.

This car, it's a really high-performance car. It's got fantastic acceleration. It's got a lot of grip, braking capability. It really is a serious performance car yet we didn't want to make it a chore to drive. The whole car is masculine. This is like testosterone on wheels, but the steering is weighted. The gear shift, it's solid. It's not heavy, but you feel what you're doing. It's not like a little two fingers thing. I mean, you feel it. The clutch is not overly heavy, but it's firm. The brake pedal, it's firm. Everything is just firm. It just kind of reminds you that you're driving a serious car, and there's nothing wrong with that. Everything doesn't have to be appealing to everyone. You just need to be everything to someone.
