Winter 2016 7


When we first heard about Revol-

ogy’s ‘‘66 Mustang [

see Spring 2015’s

“Mail SAAC

”] our first thought was,

How long will it be before they come

out with a GT350 model?

” Turns out it

took less than a year. You’ll recall the

project begins with a Dynacorn ‘66

Mustang unibody and adds a current

driveline – 265 h.p. 302 V8 crate en-

gine, five-speed transmission and 3.70

Traction-Lok nine-inch rear – along

with power rack-and-pinion steering,

four wheel disc brakes, power windows

and seats, choice of 15˝, 16˝ or 17˝

“heritage” wheels and every other state-of-the-art geegaw they can load into the car. All for a sticker price of $119,500

(add $2,500 for a power convertible top).

We’ve not seen any mention of how many units Revology has sold to date, but if it was a lot we would have been

peppered with press releases shouting that in all directions. So the actual number of buyers has likely been small.

That’s to be expected for a project such as this, which means it’s time to turn up the wick and create a GT350 model.

With Shelby American’s blessing, of course (“blessing” meaning being licensed by Shelby American Licensing and cov-

ering their outstretched hand with a royalty).

A quick look at Revology’s specification for their GT350 sheet shows the Dynacorn unibody will be powered by an

aluminum 5-liter Ford “Coyote” DOHC V8, running through a Tremec T-56 close-ratio six-speed (electronically-con-

trolled four-speed automatic optional) to a nine-inch, 31-spline, 4.11 Eaton “TrueTrac” limited slip rear. Four wheel

discs with 12.19˝ rotors (six pistons up front and four in the rear), 3-link rear suspension with coil springs and Panhard

rod, power rack-and-pinion steering and all the other whiz-bang stuff they can stir in top the mix brings the total

to...ka-ching...$136,500 FOB Orlando, Florida. Order now for July 2016 delivery.


The clean contour of the roll bar

on the 427 competition Cobra didn’t

just pop out of some fabricator’s head

one day. Actually, the design was used

on the Carroll Shelby School of High

Performance Driving’s Austin Healey

Sprite school car in 1962, pictured

The same type of roll bar, simple

but functional single loop with rear

brace, was constructed for the proto-

type Tiger race car built in 1963 at

Shelby American. Pictured [
