In 2015 the Ford Mustang became a truly global machine available from dealers across the world. However, there has always been an international demand for the original pony car. To satiate that desire in countries that drive on the right, Revology Cars has create the world’s first licensed reproduction right-hand-drive Shelby.

“This car demonstrates the thoughtful, engineering-driven approach we take at Revology,” Tom Scarpello, founder and CEO of Revology Cars, said.”
The car in question is one of Revology’s 1966 Shelby GT350H models, but it wasn’t converted for driving abroad. Instead this replica was created from the ground up with the new driver position and the proper lighting to meet the laws of its new home.
“This is not a conversion. This car was developed and built as a RHD model, starting with the unibody.” Indeed, the firewall, upper and lower cowl, right hand inner fender apron, and dash are either new RHD stamped parts or expertly hand-fabricated parts created in-house,” Revology Cars’ chief engineer, Aaron Wright, explained.
The Revology machines are already complex vehicles melding classic bodies with modern accoutrements like Coyote 5.0-liter engines, but this project took things to another level. It required additional clearance for the steering linkage on the right, as well as new, stamped firewall; upper and lower cowls; inner fender apron; and dash. Moreover, the footwell required modification, and Revology created new brake and clutch pedal arms for the right side.
“This was an intricate process and required some building up of the material to create a refined, OEM appearance,” Aaron said. “None of these parts were available so we had to produce these in-house.”
This first example is destined to arrive with its new owner in the United Kingdom this summer, but it likely won’t be the last Revology ride with the steering wheel on that side.
