  • 1969 Classic Recreations Ford Mustang Boss 429

    Classic Recreations recently secured a license from Ford to bring back some of the automaker's most cherished Mustangs. We're talking the 1960s-era Boss 302 and 429, as well as the Mach 1. The Yukon, Oklahoma-based company has since unveiled the first of the modern recreations, stunning audiences at last week's 2018 SEMA show in Las Vegas where the car debuted. The presented car was a turnkey 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429, a model CR says it has exclusive rights to build. For the debut, CR went with a beastly black design complemented with a modern wheel pattern and even LED accent lighting. CR...

  • Classic Recreations' Shelby GT 500CR Convertible

    When it comes to exclusivity, plenty of cars can claim to be 1 of 500, or even 1 of 100. Drop below triple digits, and a car’s value can climb exponentially, which explains the popularity of continuation cars like Classic Recreations’ version of the 1967 Shelby G.T. 500 Fastback. Significantly rarer than that car, however, is the 1967 Shelby G.T. 500 convertible, which was, technically speaking, one of none built. Sure, there was a prototype constructed, but the car was never officially put into production, making it arguably the most valuable muscle car in history. Now, thanks to...

  • Classic Recreations <em>Gone in Sixty Seconds</em> 'Eleanor'

    Although the days of Toby Halicki's 40-minute chase scenes seem to be long and lamentably gone, his production company has licensed the latest incarnation of Eleanor for reproduction. That means that Joe Public can get his very own Eleanor for the meager sum of $139,900. And this isn't (necessarily) some restored rust-bucket; these are brand new cars. Using reproduction 1967 Mustang Fastback bodies licensed from Ford enables the Classic Recreations crew to build new Eleanors without sacrificing original Mustangs. That saves a good bit of cost and labor, and the modernization that's possible...
