    • Want a brand new 1969 Boss 302, 1969 Boss 429, or 1969-1970 Mach 1 Mustang? Classic Recreations and Ford partner to make it happen

      Why don't more manufacturers do this? Imagine the money that could be made by releasing classics with updated motors, electronics, and suspension systems? Classic Recreations sees the potential and partnered with Ford to re-release classic '69/'70 Mustangs.


      The cars will feature brand new parts from the official Ford catalog. You can get a classic body or a completely new body built to Ford specifications. Oh, and you can stick a Coyote under the hood as well. If that does not work for you, how about a 363 cubic inch Ford Racing stroker V8?

      The Mach 1 model in particular will be allowed to sample any engine Classic Recreations offers. That means if you want a 1969 Mustang Mach 1 with an Ecoboost motor, no problem.

      Like everyone else we only have one question, how much and when?




      CLASSIC RECREATIONS ANNOUNCES FORD-LICENSED PROGRAM TO BUILD FIRST EVER CONTINUATION BOSS AND MACH 1 MUSTANGS

      Oklahoma-based coachbuilder unveils plans to build turn-key Boss 302, Boss 429 and Mach 1 Mustangs as the first models in its newly announced continuation car program licensed by Ford Motor Company.

      Yukon, Okla. (April, 2018) – Classic Recreations has been officially licensed by Ford Motor Company to build the first ever turn-key versions of some of the blue oval brand’s most legendary vehicles, beginning with the 1969-1970 BOSS 302, 1969-1970 BOSS 429 and 1969-1970 Mach 1 Mustangs. Each vehicle will be built to customer specifications using the latest chassis and drivetrain technology paired with new Ford-licensed reproduction parts – giving owners the opportunity to own and drive the most iconic muscle cars ever built, updated to run and drive like modern supercars.

      Classic Recreations will debut the first vehicle built under the new license, a BOSS 429 Mustang, at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas this November. Classic Recreations is the only licensed continuation car builder to offer the highly sought after BOSS 429 Mustang. The “BOSS 9,” as it is sometimes called in collector car circles, will be built from an original 1969 or 1970 Mustang body, though customers can opt for a brand-new body licensed by Ford, and will come equipped with a custom-built BOSS 429 engine featuring updated valvetrain and cutting-edge EFI and engine management systems.

      “We chose to offer these new models because we wanted to expand our Ford offerings beyond just Shelbys,” said Classic Recreations owner Jason Engel. “The BOSS 429 is one of the coolest and rarest Mustangs ever produced, but they have gotten so valuable that most owners won’t drive them. This offers people the chance to own an incredibly rare car that they can actually drive, and with modern chassis and engine tech these cars will actually be faster and easier to drive than the original.”

      In addition to the BOSS 429, Classic Recreations will also offer the BOSS 302 and Mach 1. Like the BOSS 429, the BOSS 302 and Mach 1 Mustangs will both begin with original 1969-1970 Mustang bodies or can be built with new Ford-licensed bodies. The 302 will be offered with two engine options – a current generation Coyote 32 valve Ford Performance V8 crate engine or a 363-cubic inch stroker engine that utilizes a 302 block. The Mach 1 Mustangs can be equipped with any engine option offered by Classic Recreations, including the latest EcoBoost models from Ford or an original FE big block.

      Anyone interested in purchasing one of these new models can reach out to the shop to discuss purchasing and timing.

        Meh, I love the concept, but the actual photos look a bit more kit-carish than those drawings.

        LOL - I didn't even look up the pricing. They would be a pass for me even at $40k.

        Still cool though.

        I wish BMW would re-release the E30 M3 with updated pieces.
