Let’s say you’re a diehard Mustang fan who, for one reason or another, didn’t have the means to acquire the original first-generation car when it launched as a 1965 model. Nowadays, you can find a decent example in good working order if you try, without necessarily breaking the bank.
Or, might we suggest this? It’s a 1966 Ford Mustang “continuation,” so to speak, made by a company called Revology. Autoblog reports that it was unveiled at the Amelia Concours d’Elegance earlier this month, and while certainly appearing to be a genuine 1966 Ford Mustang, is actually a licensed replica with modern technology.
The engine, for instance, is a fuel-injected 5.0-liter V8 producing about 265 HP. It has MacPherson strut suspension at all four corners, as well as disc brakes, and even has power windows, remote power locks, Bluetooth, power seats – the works. It’s a bit like the Eagle E-Type of 1966 Ford Mustangs, if you will.
Unfortunately, this bit of novelty comes at a price: $119,500. We appreciate the endeavor, but unless Revology can find a way to bring the cost of its 1966 Ford Mustang replicar down, we don’t see it sustaining the newbie company for very long.
