Vintage lovers and Mad Men fans, rejoice! Florida startup Revology is bringing back the 1964 Mustang to consumers everywhere to make their wildest retro dreams come true.
Revology has its roots firmly set in Ford soil. Its founder, Tom Scarpello, was former marketing chief for ford Special Projects, the skunkworks arm that gave you innovative classics such as the Mustang Cobra R, F-150 Lightning, and GT.
This lovely is as gorgeous as when she first cruised the streets back in the ’60s, but don’t worry about her inner works. The Mustang’s chassis is as classic as she comes, but its inner mechanisms are all brand new. Revology sees to it that they start working with licensed replica bodies created by Dynacorn, then fill them with curated parts to improve riding performance, among other things. Talk about having the best of the past and the present.
Want more proof? If you look closely at the car, you’ll notice its headlights and taillights are fitted with LEDs, and the keyhole in the passenger door is gone. Why? This baby comes with remote electronic locks, a hidden antenna, power seats, and power windows operated as switches disguised as wind-up cranks. How’s that for integrity?
This car is as sexy as can be, but that’s not all she’s toting. Its engine is a remanufactured 1990’s-era 302 V8 from Ford, chosen because it’s it’s the same size as the original 289 V8 and the best size of engine to fit into the chassis without having to modify it. The motor puts out about 265 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque, and is paired with either a 5-speed manual, or 4-speed automatic transmission that sends power to a 9-inch, 3.70 ratio limited slip rear end. This lovely piece of machinery also comes with a 100,000-mile warranty.
This ’64 Mustang doesn’t come cheap, though: the fastback will cost you a pretty $ 119,500.00, while the convertible with a power top is set at $122,000.00. We’re bound to think some fans feel she’d worth every penny, and we agree.
