FrontRunners: Back to the Future
Classic Recreations’ Shelby G.T.500CR (www.classicrecreations.com) is the first continuation car of that model to be licensed by Shelby Mustang. Classic Recreations is handcrafting a limited number of the autos, each in about five months, as 1967 or ’68 fastbacks. The Yukon, Okla.–based company built the G.T.500CR’s 7-liter V-8 engine in-house, and used various suspension, braking, and interior components from Shelby Performance Parts. Three performance packages are available, at prices ranging from $119,000 to $199,000.
