Hi, I’m Tom Scarpello of Revology Cars, and this is car number 81 – a 1968 Mustang GT 2+2 fastback in Highland Green Metallic with Porsche Black Nappa leather interior. So, one of the things of the many things that differentiate the Revology Mustang from the rest of the pack is the interior. We do all of our interiors in-house. There’s a team of skilled technicians that this is all they do. This car is equipped with our walnut veneer trim, and this is kind of a riff on the deluxe interior in 1968, which had a simulated wood applique. Of course, we’ve done this in genuine walnut veneer. The inserts are laser cut by a company up in Michigan, and we install them at our facility. The attention to detail, I mean just something as seemingly minor as a door panel, there’s a tremendous amount of work that goes into a door panel.  

Look at this door panel. This is not a reproduction or aftermarket door panel. This is something we’ve actually designed in-house. So, it starts with the backer, kind of a composite material that’s laser cut, and it just fits perfectly, the contour of the door. Then that backer is wrapped in leather. It’s the Porsche Nappa leather. There’s a trim piece, and this is not plastic. This is actually stainless steel, and we have a fixture that we use to mold. It’s painstakingly bent around this fixture to get exactly this shape, then your insert here. This is also leather. This is perforated leather, and this is made in another fixture that keeps the seams precisely.  

I mean, if you were measuring this, the seams are like within half a millimeter of each other, and this was all designed on CAD and that the technician can lay this piece into the fixture to sew the seam exactly in the same distance from one another. So, you look at the door panel, you think it’s a door panel, but you don’t really realize all of the effort, work, and hours of design work, development work, tooling, and then the actual assembly to get this kind of a level of quality and craftsmanship.  

So, here’s something interesting! Now brands, the concept of a brand has been around for literally thousands of years. Probably started with cattle, ranchers would brand their cattle, bricks, and I mean other things that craftsmen built and branded to differentiate their product to be able to justify a premium price. That’s evolved so much to the modern day. Yet in the Restomod segment, which is just booming, continues to grow. There’s like little or no branding. There’s almost no branding which says people aren’t really differentiating among the Restomod builds that are out there.  

Now you can forgive people for thinking that way because modern automobiles are commodities. You look at an Accord versus a Camry or a 5-series BMW versus an E-class Mercedes. They’re differentiated in design, but in terms of functionality and quality durability, they’re all extremely competitive and could be considered a commodity. So, I guess I can understand why people might just assume that it’s the case with a Restomod but what’s really different is the OEMs will spend literally billions of dollars developing a new vehicle. A Restomod builder, his investment is pretty much limited to the parts that he’s bolting into the car. So it’s a totally different deal, and the level of quality and craftsmanship and the different Restomods that are out there for sale is incredibly diverse.  

It doesn’t take a lot of skill to put together a car that looks good and can cross an auction block under its own power, but to have a car that you would drive literally drive every day and function like a modern automobile and it doesn’t squeak and rattle and doesn’t leak and electrical problems all of that stuff that you don’t really see you don’t appreciate until you drive it. That’s hard. That’s really where the skill and the expertise come in.   

At Revology, we differentiate ourselves in a lot of ways. One is that we only build cars off of one platform, and literally, everything that we’ve done has been off of our M58 platform. It’s all we do ‘65 to ‘68 Mustang. They all feature our unibody built in-house, our interior, our platform our electrical system. And that’s how we are able to consistently build quality vehicles to a very high level of craftsmanship. It’s manufacturing, basically. It’s not custom. Gosh, the more custom you are, the more things that can go wrong!  

In manufacturing, you want to eliminate variability, and we back up our cars with a warranty, so you get a one-year bumper-to-bumper unlimited mileage warranty. There’s a two-year warranty on the power train. There’s five years rust and corrosion warranty on the body. It’s all about the promise that we make to our clients in terms of our commitment to delivering a high-quality, well-built automobile.  

That’s branding. I’m certain that someday people will really start to understand and appreciate the differences in the level of builds from different Restomod builders, and branding will really start to be an important differentiator. I’m not saying we’re the only company that builds a really well sorted Restomod, but I will say for this car, ‘65 to ‘68 Mustang, there’s nobody doing it better, that’s for sure!
