Hi, I’m Tom Scarpello of Revology Cars, and this is car number 85 – the 1968 Mustang GT 2+2 Fastback in Porsche Chalk with Porsche Dark Gray Nappa leather interior. So, this is a ‘68 Mustang GT. It has the ‘68 GT fog lights in the grill, which is an original touch. However, on the side, the client chose to go with something a little bit more minimalistic. So, there’s no molding, no badging on the fender. Torque thrust wheels, which were not original but were very much in vogue back in the ‘60s, and they look great on the ‘68 Mustang. At the back of the car, pretty much stock GT gas cap, Mustang lettering on the back. Really the only telltale from the rear that you’re looking at something other than the original ‘68 is the exhaust tips which, of course, are Borla. 

So, this client opted for the Porsche Nappa leather interior, so every surface in the interior is covered in this leather which is a Porsche Dark Gray color. To me, it looks a bit more brown which really looks great with the chalk exterior. So, it’s the dash pad, its covered in leather, the console, headliner, sun visors, door panels, seats, all of the interior trim panels in the back. Basically, every surface is covered in Porsche Nappa leather, very much a luxury interior, I think befitting of a Bentley. 

So, what’s been going on at Revology lately? We, like everyone else, has been dealing with the aftershocks of the Covid-19 and supply chain disruption, and it’s I think everyone’s pretty aware of the chip global chip shortage which has affected us. Anything that’s imported from Asia obviously has been affected. We’ve had to rearrange our production schedules a lot to basically build what we can get parts for. So, I really have to give credit to our team for sorting through this mess. We really, I mean the worst impact for any of our clients has been maybe two or three months delay which I think given the circumstances is really good. 

In fact, an interesting story, the owner of this car, number 85, placed an order for a 911 from a company in California that builds Restomod 911s. They’re based on the early 90s- 964. He placed his order for that car and then later places an order for this car. Now he’s taking delivery of his Revology Mustang, and his other car hasn’t even started production yet. So, I would say, relatively speaking, we’re doing okay. Having a backlog is okay, temporarily, but obviously, you’ve got to react to that and get your production aligned with your demand. I just don’t understand companies that brag about how big of a backlog they have. I think they’re just broadcasting to the world that they don’t know how to run their business!
