Classic Recreations Showcase right-hand-drive 1967 Shelby GT500CR Convertible

This past week at SEMA Classic Recreations showcased a very special GT500CR convertible. What was so special with it? Well it was a right hand drive model.

You may be thinking, “so what, Classic Recreations have built RHD models before” though this time the RHD parts for the interior and engine bay had to be custom fabricated to get the steering system moved over instead of using LHD parts just swapped over. This way the car looks like it came from the factory in its right hand drive configuration.

The car was built for a customer in Australia and you can see from the pictures below the quality is second to none. The exciting question now for Australian and United Kingdom Mustang enthusiasts is will Classic Recreations be producing and selling these custom fabricated RHD parts? We’ve put the question to owner Jason Engel and we’ll let you know as soon as we do.

It’s a great step forward for both the company and the Mustang restoration industry potentially opening up a whole new range of options for the budding restorer.
