Back in 1967, the Shelby GT500 was introduced with a sole purpose – show the Mustang had all the grunt needed for the muscle car class, discarding its pony car origin with the help of a hulking 7.0-liter V8.
It’s become a cult classic in the meantime, with a mere production outturn of a little over 2,000 units – and in case you never got the chance to drive one, Revology is here to help you meet the classic. The 1967 Shelby GT500 offered by the Orlando, Florida-based aftermarket boutique is actually “new” – as we’re dealing with an improper restomod here. That’s because the Revology Shelby GT500 is actually an all-new car using a Ford-licensed steel body that’s identical to the original – complete with actual badges and stripes.
But now there’s a new rear suspension, an electronic parking brake, a limited-slip differential, aluminum wheels and even LED exterior lighting. The interior is modeled after the original, but with all the modern amenities one would expect – remote keyless entry and push-button start, 7.0-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth connectivity, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Alcantara headliner, amplifier-subwoofer combo, and Sirius XM Radio. For $219,000 and an additional $3,840 if you want to switch from the six-speed close-ratio manual transmission to an auto, you’ll also be getting a Roush-prepped Coyote V8 with 600 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque.
