Classic Recreations Shelby GT500CR

If you like the idea of the classic Shelby Mustang shape with a modern twist, then you have to check out this car built by Oklahoma-based Classic Recreations. The company has taken its Shelby GT500CR model, which normally features a vintage 427ci V8, and stuffed with a modern Coyote 5.0L V8  crate engine from Ford Racing Performance Parts. We originally showed you the car when it debuted at the SEMA Show back in November, but now we have plenty of new beauty shots for you showing every detail of the bright red fastback.

Of course, the Coyote V8 isn’t the only modern component of the GT500CR. The car also features a full coilover suspension system, rack & pinion steering and Baer slotted and cross-drilled disc brakes. The look of the car is all vintage, though, from the woodgrain and aluminum steering wheel to the high-back Rally Series seats.

You can check out all the details of the Coyote-powered Classic Recreations Shelby GT500CR in the photo gallery below.

    Always a great looking Mustang and no doubt bad ass powered by a Coyote motor but these prices are absurd!! Just think how many more could be sold priced less than 100 grand

    Carl do you have a clue what goes in to a car of this caliber? obviously not… if they sold for less than 100k there would be no prophet. 150k is probably just making their shop hourly rate plus materials. Your clueless.

    Umm Raymond, been doing this for 25 years so I know exactly what goes into and exactly what it costs smartass!! When the people in Texas brought out the Eleanor I knew the person funding it so I had their buildsheet and know exactly what their build cost was do you? Obviously not so who’s clueless! Don’t run off at the mouth because you have no idea who’s on the other end and you are clueless to their knowledge!
