Orlando, FL – Fans of rare and desirable Mustangs will be thrilled by Revology Cars’ reproduction 1966 Shelby GT350 convertible, the latest addition to the company’s growing lineup.

This very limited production model follows in the footsteps of the ultra-rare original Shelby GT350 convertibles built in 1966, only four of which were made as part of a feasibility study.

As Tom Scarpello, Revology Cars CEO explains, this convertible model was never approved for production. However, in the 1980s Carroll Shelby decided to build 12 “continuation” cars to commemorate this very special model. “He rounded up 12 original Mustang convertibles, and rebuilt them to 1966 GT350 specification, complete with the high performance 289 cubic inch V8,” says Scarpello. “Today, these cars are highly sought after; one recently sold at Bonhams for over $200,000.”

In keeping with Shelby’s limited production run, Revology is producing just a dozen GT350 convertibles, four of which have already been promised to current Revology clients. As with the standard Revology GT350, the convertible is powered by a 460hp Ford 5.0-liter V-8 ?Coyote’ engine coupled to a six-speed manual Tremec transmission or optional Ford 10R80 10-speed automatic.

“Over the years, Ford has launched many significant Mustang model variants, which generated consumer interest and created a halo for the Mustang brand,” notes Scarpello. “At Revology Cars, we are continuing this tradition with our own versions of these memorable Mustangs of the past.

“This year, as well as the GT350 convertible, we are planning several model variants based on our current 1965-1968 Mustang and Shelby GT line-up. Stay tuned for more details.”

Revology is the first company ever licensed by Ford to build a new reproduction Ford. It is also one of a handful of companies worldwide licensed by Shelby.
