Does anyone remember that Texas shop that was building recreation Eleanors after Gone in 60 Seconds back in 2000? You know the one – they produced Chip Foose’s signature Mustangs, the Foose Stallions? Don’t remember? It’s probably a good thing. They were doing it wrong.

But Classic Recreations has been doing it right for quite some time now. Owner Jason Engle has a love for classic Mustangs and respects the heritage. The cars they produce in Oklahoma are top notch and beautiful. And blessed by Carroll Shelby himself.

At SEMA this year, Classic Recreations has re-introduced the 1967 GT500 CR Mustang now powered by a 490 hp 5.0 liter Coyote crate motor from Ford Racing. Combine that with the sexy lines of the muscle car classic, a modern suspension and world class interior and you have a very sweet ride. Check out the press release below for the details and a link to their website.

Yukon, Okla. (Nov. 2013) –Custom coachbuilder, Classic Recreations, debuted its Coyote powered 1967 Shelby G.T.500CR in the Dynacorn booth at the 2013 SEMA Show. The Classic Recreations G.T.500CR is the only officially licensed 1967 Shelby Mustang in production, and this Coyote engine model features modern performance suspension, model specific bodywork, custom paint and hand-stitched upholstery to create a Shelby with classic Mustang styling and modern driving performance—a formula for which Classic Recreations is known.

Powered by a Ford Racing Coyote 5.0 crate engine, this G.T500CR has 490 horsepower and 429 ft-lb of torque at 4,250 RPMs. Like the 545 model, Classic Recreations begins with an original Mustang body by Dynacorn, completely stripping it down and adding modernized suspension, power rack and pinion steering and a Tremec five speed manual transmission to insert modern driving experience. Other features include Carroll Shelby signature rally series 1000 seats, larger 17×9.5 rear wheels and front and rear coilover suspension for modern sports car handling.

“If you like the graceful drivability of a modern G.T.500, but prefer the classic Mustang styling, this is the car for you,” said Classic Recreations owner, Jason Engel. “Classic Recreations combines modern technology with classic styling to create a best-of-both worlds experience. Now, customers can get a CR car with the same engine offered by Ford for the current Mustang.”

Classic Recreations also offers a G.T.500CR 900s model, which has all the features of the 545 model plus boosted power to 780hp with an F1-R Intercooled ProCharger supercharged engine. Other upgrades include a 200mph speedometer and racing-style bucket seats. The 900s also boasts suspension and chassis upgrades as well as 17×11″ rear wheels and wider ultra high performance Goodyear tires.

All G.T.500CRs are available in five different color schemes and features authentic Shelby Performance parts and a real Shelby Le Mans racing gas cap. The Classic Recreations cars also come with an official Shelby serial number, badges and are included in the official Shelby Worldwide Registry.
