Motoring News: 1967 Shelby GT500CR by Classic Recreations

An American Tuner has gone about recreating a 1967 Shelby Mustang GT which was seen at SEMA this month.

The GT500R is a recreation rather than being a restoration of sorts, and is fitted with modern technology which include an overdrive  tranmissions and coil-over suspension.

The specification:

  • Hand-built 427 cubic inch (7litre) with 545 bhp
  • Tremec manual gearbox
  • Carroll Shelby signature seats
  • Shelby 427 17-inch wheels

There are 1967 door panels, dash and trim to keep the recreation fairly authentic.

Prices start at a whooping: $119,000

The Oklahoma-based Classic Recreations is promising a more powerful Venom variant for next year, with 780 bhp and a starting price of $199,000. 


If we’re honest, we aren’t a huge fan of recreations here at R&CC.
