Even when I type in Ford Mustang, chills run up my spine, being an automobile aficionado that is.
Even when you see the latest iteration, the Ford Mustang design screams with the heritage that Ford is building all these years.
I personally always wanted a lean mean old-timer with a dash of technology. Putting some new parts on that classic look is something that the Orlando-based company Revology does best.
Modern Equipment with a Retro Look
They combine modern levels of equipment with replica steel bodies made by Dynacorn and licensed by Ford to give the 1964 Ford Mustang Coupe that classic look a much needed tech boost.
These sweet hybrids are what you call “continuation” Mustangs, and under the the steel body you’ll find a 5.0-liter fuel-injected V8 with around 265 horsepower and either a four-speed automatic or a five-speed manual transmission and the powertrain is just the start of it all.
New parts that are also included are four disc brakes, a power steering, a much needed remote keyless entry, power door locks, power seats. One big bonus is the digital message center that is positioned on the instrument cluster which has a built-in Bluetooth connectivity. Other electronic goodies also include unexpected LED headlights.
Even though you’ll get all of the modern upgrades, the fine looking new 1964 Ford Mustang Coupe replica looks really authentic, and if you don’t know the inside you can easily be fooled thinking it’s a perfectly restored original.
The details in the Ford Mustang 1964 are magnificent, the guys from Revology push the boundaries to maintain the look of the original. You’ll also get power windows activated by pushing or pulling on the original window. If you wondered if there is no USB you are wrong and with that you also get AUX jacks that are hidden in the ashtray.
Straight Restoration by Revology
If by any chance you have an original Mustang in your garage and if you are considering some upgrades then Revology is the place where you should be headed. They do everything from straight restoration and renew older cars and also offer a rolling chassis and component kits.
All of Revology’s Mustang replicas come with an impressive one-year, and listen to this an unbelievable unlimited mileage warranty. Additional coverage on powertrain components extends to around three years. And Revology is serious when they say that the body will be covered against rust and corrosion for believe it or not five years.
