Does the Revology Mustang meet current Federal Motor Vehicle Safety (FMVSS) standards?
No. It is impossible to meet current FMVSS given the constraints of the 1960s vehicle architecture. However, the Revology Mustang platform features many passive safety improvements not available in the original cars, including three-point driver and passenger seat belts, a dual-circuit braking system, a collapsible steering shaft, a fuel pump inertia switch, a 16-gauge steel trunk floor, and optional driver and passenger head restraints.

No. Although it is theoretically possible to design an ABS brake package for the Revology Mustang platform, the high development cost cannot be amortized over the low production volumes of a limited edition, hand-built automobile such as this.

Revology started operations in 2014 and garnered extensive publicity and praise for the quality and execution of its 1966 Mustang convertible concept, exhibited at the prestigious Amelia Island Concours in 2015. Revology was founded by Tom Scarpello, whose long career in the automotive industry includes experience as leader of the Special Vehicle Team at Ford and senior management roles at Jaguar, Nissan and Infiniti. This background gave Scarpello the experience and deep knowledge of the many automotive industry disciplines, from manufacturing to marketing, needed to start a car company of his own.

Will Revology offer reproductions of other generation Mustangs and/or Shelbys in the future?
We started with the 1964½-1966 models, because those were the first iconic Mustangs. Since then we have launched 1966 Shelby GT350, 1967 Shelby GT500, and 1968 GT 2+2 Fastback. In the future, we will build whatever our customers want, so if there is enough demand for the later models, we certainly will build them.
Does Revology sell parts?
Yes. We have been so busy with vehicle production that we haven’t gotten our parts business officially rolling yet, but we do intend to offer parts and parts kits to the aftermarket during 2018 Stay tuned!
Does Revology build hot rods and custom cars?
No. Revology is not a hot rod shop, we are a vehicle manufacturer. However, we do have the capability in-house to design and build virtually anything, so there may be an exception made for a particularly interesting project.
How can I have confidence that the quality and workmanship will be of the highest standard?
All Revology Mustangs use the same set of proven components and go through a standardized build process. We have made a large investment in the development of our 1965-68 Mustang platform to ensure the highest quality, reliability, and durability. Revology has produced more consecutive ’66 Mustangs than anyone since Ford in 1966. As they say, do one thing, do it well.
Can I test drive a Revology Mustang prior to buying one?
Yes, if we have a vehicle available. At this time we do not have any unsold inventory; 100% of our production is dedicated to firm customer orders.
What is the payment schedule?
Payment is made in four equal installments. The first 1/4 payment is made upon submission of the initial production order. The next 1/4 payment is made when the body goes into production. The next 1/4 payment is made when the body is painted, and the last 1/4 installment is made upon delivery.
What is the resale value of the Revology Mustang?
The Revology Mustang is too new to have established a resale value history. However, considering this is an extremely rare, hand-built automobile, built 100% to order, and that we have had an order backlog ever since we started production, we expect resale will be excellent. Resale value is a function of supply and demand. We know we build a luxury product and exclusivity is an important part of that. We will always be demand-driven, not supply-driven.

Revology Mustangs can be serviced at any Ford dealership, and indeed at virtually any independent shop that is capable of servicing both early and late model Mustangs.
