You Can Buy a Brand New 1968 Ford Mustang, But It Isn't Cheap
By ELI SHAYOTOVICH
Founder and CEO Tom Scarpello created Revology in 2015 to build reproduction Mustangs "with all of the classic style and character of the original," but decked out with all the bells, whistles and functionality found in today's modern cars. As Scarpello puts it, they are building an entirely new Mustang — unibody to final assembly — from scratch.
Revology was the first Ford licensed to produce replicas of its famous 1965 to 1970 Mustangs. Its customers can buy one of the seven offered models, based on original Ford VIN numbers, or mix and match any number of trims, packages, colors or other features to create something unique, with base prices starting around the $250,000 range.
Mustang enthusiasts have loads of options to choose from, with some even blending the classic with the modern — for instance, an old-school head unit that looks like the original AM radio but features FM, Bluetooth, and AUX inputs. Virtually every original Mustang color from the 1960s to the present is available, and Revology can even spray custom colors for an extra cost.
To date, Revology has hand-built 127 new-old Mustangs, and also sells a line of parts, from engines to brakes. According to the company, a vehicle build takes approximately six months, and as of April 2022, it has a backlog of around six to seven months for orders — so consumers with a quarter of a million dollars burning a hole in their pocket better get on the list now.
