Revol­ogy Cars’ Mus­tang Repli­cas Re­ceive Up­dates

Mustang Monthly - - PONYTALES -

Revol­ogy Cars, the Or­lando, Florida–based com­pany spe­cial­iz­ing in turnkey Mus­tang re­pro­duc­tions, has re­leased de­tails on its 2019 model lineup, which in­cludes pow­er­train up­dates and sev­eral op­tions and fea­ture pack­ages for con­sumers to cre­ate their own one-of-a-kind clas­sic Mus­tang or Shelby replica of their dreams.

“The 2019 model year Revol­ogy Mus­tangs and Shelby GTs are bet­ter than ever,” says Revol­ogy Founder and CEO Tom Scarpello. “Since we started this com­pany al­most five years ago, we have worked con­tin­u­ously to im­prove and re­fine our prod­ucts. The re­sult is a re­mark­able blend of per­for­mance, re­li­a­bil­ity, driv­abil­ity, com­fort, and safety.”

Hav­ing driven sev­eral Revol­ogy Mus­tangs our­selves in the past, we can state with con­fi­dence that Mr. Scarpello is cer­tainly speak­ing the truth here. Ev­ery model we’ve driven has been an ex­cit­ing drive with all the com­fort, re­li­a­bil­ity, and safety that can be added to make these Mus­tangs all they can be, and you a su­per­star when you’re be­hind the wheel.

For the 2019 model year Revol­ogy con­tin­ues with all of last year’s Mus­tang body styles and trim lev­els as a base; how­ever, the big news across the board is the in­te­gra­tion of Ford’s lat­est-gen­er­a­tion 5.0L Coy­ote V-8. This “Gen 3” en­gine ups the horse­power and torque over the pre­vi­ous Gen 2 Coy­ote that Revol­ogy was us­ing. This makes the base horse­power and torque num­bers rise to 460 and 420, re­spec­tively. The Gen 3 Coy­ote will only be avail­able with a man­ual trans­mis­sion, how­ever, as order­ing an au­to­matic (Ford’s 6R80 six-speed) will re­quire re­tain­ing the Gen 2 Coy­ote en­gine due to its fac­tory shift con­trols in­te­grated into the en­gine man­age­ment sys­tem of the Gen 2 elec­tron­ics.

In­side, Revol­ogy hasn’t ac­cepted same old, same old here ei­ther. New stan­dard fea­tures in­clude a stan­dard full-length con­sole with stor­age bin and leather-wrapped arm­rest, dual cuphold­ers in­te­grated into the con­sole top plate, and re­dun­dant power win­dow and lock switches. The ’67-’68 mod­els also fea­ture a stan­dard 7-inch touch­screen en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem in the con­sole as well. Speak­ing of au­dio, Revol­ogy un­der­stands that en­thu­si­asts en­joy their mu­sic on their drives, and to that end Revol­ogy has re­vamped its op­tional au­dio pack­age with JL Au­dio com­po­nent speak­ers, an 800-watt Class D am­pli­fier, and 10-inch sub­woofer!

All 2019 mod­els also fea­ture a fac­tory on­board 4.5-amp trickle charger with a mag­netic con­tact un­der the rear bumper, which makes it sim­ple for clients to en­sure their bat­tery is al­ways fully charged, even when the car is left in stor­age for an ex­tended pe­riod. Safety is fur­ther en­hanced with stan­dard LED head- and foglamps (if equipped), and an on­board Tire Pressure Mon­i­tor­ing

Sys­tem (TPMS) is now avail­able on the op­tions list as well.

De­sign­ing a mod­ern­ized replica of a 50-plusyear-old, much-loved name­plate of­ten means there are pack­ag­ing lim­i­ta­tions to main­tain the clas­sic Mus­tang’s lines, but that doesn’t mean Revol­ogy doesn’t ex­am­ine ev­ery inch of its Mus­tangs to look for im­prove­ments in de­tails, NVH (noise, vi­bra­tion, and harsh­ness), ride qual­ity, safety, and so forth. To that end, Revol­ogy has made the de­ci­sion to re­place the ven­er­a­ble Ford 9-inch axle assem­bly they’ve been us­ing with Ford’s more mod­ern 8.8-inch axle­hous­ing for

2019 mod­els. The 8.8-inch unit is a lighter and more com­pact rear axle assem­bly that pro­duces less gear noise, yet can be built to han­dle a lot of horse­power and is more than ca­pa­ble of the power lev­els the Revol­ogy Mus­tangs put to the tire, even when equipped with the op­tional su­per­charger sys­tem it of­fers. The stan­dard 8.8-inch axle is a 31-spline with Ea­ton True­trac lim­ited-slip dif­fer­en­tial. Su­per­charged ap­pli­ca­tions re­ceive a 33-spline axle with 1350 yoke, also with True­trac
