While the current generation Ford Mustang is quite attractive for muscle car fans, many can’t deny that the classic 1960s Mustangs were some of the most beautiful cars ever made, with the cherry on top being the special editions released by performance companies like Shelby.
Now, in order to bring back those classic times, coach builder Classic Recreations has announced that it has secured the licensing deal with Shelby to commence building the classic GT500CR based on the 1967 and 1968 Ford Mustang models.
“I am humbled and honored by the opportunity to work with a legend like Carroll Shelby,” said Classic Recreations owner Jason Engel. “We pride ourselves on building the finest coachbuilt muscle cars in the world, and I’m thrilled that this new opportunity will allow us to build some of the fastest and coolest supercars on the road today. Other shops build cars. We sit down with a client, listen to their fantasies, and then turn those into reality.”
What’s even more interesting, especially for purists, is that each model built by Classic Recreations will feature a unique serial number in the Shelby database. Each car will be made with performance parts, guaranteeing the best satisfaction.
This is certainly great news for Mustang fans, but no other details or prices were given yet, so you’ll have to wait a few more weeks.
