Would You Spend $219,000 on a Gorgeous Modern 600 HP Reproduction of a 1967 Shelby GT500?

Vintage muscle in a modern body

Published November 6, 2017

Revology is an established name in the world of tuning, resto mods and custom cars. Especially among the Ford Mustang fans. Their latest offering has been presented at the SEMA 2017, and it’s all kinds of heart warming. They’ve resurrected a 1967 Shelby GT500 by using all-new body panels, contemporary bits and pieces, and a modern platform. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill Ford Mustang. It’s an officially licensed reproduction that comes with an astronomical price tag of $219,000.

Although the exorbitant price tag seems unjustified, you should remember that Ford ain’t gonna make a new ’67 GT500 anytime soon. Moreover, few of the remaining 1967 year models of 2,048 total produced back in the day, can hardly be found for anything less than that. And mostly at auctions at that. Instead of burdening yourself with tiresome and expensive repairs – which, let’s face it, any 50 year old vehicle will require – you can get yourself a contemporary replica in a vintage body. Plus it comes with a 1 year/unlimited miles bumper to bumper warranty. Warranty is extended to 2 years for the 600-horsepower powertrain, while rust and corrosion issues are covered for 5 years.

Revology’s 1967 Shelby GT500 sits on in-house M58 platform. Previously mentioned 600 ponies and 475 lb-ft of torque come out of Roush Performance-tuned 5.0L Coyote V8 with a supercharger. Needless to say, the blower isn’t a lone wolf when it comes to engine upgrades. Driveline, cooling system, steering, brakes, and suspension were also heavily modified. Good thing is that Revology offers it with a choice of  either a Borg-Warner T56 6-speed manual or a Ford 6R80 auto transmission.

Apart from modern engine, accompanying components and underpinnings, Florida-based company’s Shelby GT500 also sports contemporary goodies like an air conditioning, power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, remote trunk release, Bluetooth, and a rolling code encrypted ignition system. Whether all of this is worth north of $200,000 – that’s for prospective buyers to decide.

About Nikola Potrebić

Despite driving a piece of junk, Nikola still manages to survive the harrowing experience called "A road trip in a Yugo," day in, day out. On the other hand, precious few things move him as muscle cars do. Especially those from the bygone golden era, which makes him wonder why wasn't he born a few decades earlier? Well, at least he's been given the opportunity to enjoy the likes of the Pontiak Aztek, Chrysler PT Cruiser, Fiat Multipla, and other lovely millennials, right? Come to think of it, I'll stick with my Yugo. Thank you very much.
