It’s been a good four years since we were taken inside Classic Recreations home of operations to see how they put together their world famous continuation Shelby Mustangs. This past week however, the guys over at MustangsDaily got the grand tour.
It’s funny to think when we last took a look inside the CR workshop the GT500CR wsa not even being built. But now four years on we’re privilidged to have a range of continuation Shelby’s rolling off their production line. Even right hand drive versions for the UK and Australian customers.
We’re not going to steal MustangDaily’s thunder so head on over there to check out their write up and fantastic pictures.
It’s not too often we get to see great videos covering vintage Mustangs and we rarely get to see inside the modern day restorers work shop. Last year we shared some brief videos inside Yukon Mustang builders Classic Recreations headquarters. Though now SPEED Channel’s Hot Rod TV have gotten access inside the workshop. The episode mainly features Classic Recreations’ foray into modern day Mustang coach-building and the company’s work on their all new 2012 ‘Villain’ Mustang they were preparing for SEMA. We also get to see owner Jason Engel check out the 2012 Hot Rod Power Tour.

It seems the team over at Classic Recreations have been busy lately. This coming week we have it on good authority they will be revealing their latest model to be added to the CR stable. The GT500CR Convertible.
MSN Autos recently named the 1967 Shelby G.T.500 the “ultimate muscle car.” The Shelby G.T.500CR-900S model starts with a legend, and injects it with modern supercar technology: a 770 horsepower supercharged engine, advanced multi-link race car inspired suspension, an opulent interior and modern turn-key reliability. It’s the newest car to come from Classic Recreations and it’s a monster.
It’s been roughly three months since Classic Recreations unveiled their much anticipated Shelby GT500CR in what was a move to provide an ‘Eleanor’ inspired car that took various stylings from the movie car but built on them in their own unique way and now in what is a sign the company’s has grown two-fold they are introducing three new models.
Only a small update this week and it’s a follow on from last weeks post where I shared two videos with you all from Classic Recreations. The behind-the-scenes videos gave us our first look inside the building of the GT500CR. If you haven’t already seen them click here. This week it’s the third part of the series, focusing on the engine, engine bay and boot compartments. Check it out after the jump.
Well it’s been a bit of a wait since we saw the intitial concept drawings of Classic Recreations new offering in partnership with Carroll Shelby, but now they have finally unveiled a prototype model that looks badass! checkout the pics after the jump.
