Over the past couple years, Oklahoma-based Classic Recreations has made a name for itself with various iterations of the Shelby GT500, starting with licensed Eleanor replicas and moving on to the Shelby GT500CR continuation cars including the most recent Venom version.

It looks like Classic Recreations will be branching out, if you can call it that, with a new model. The company has posted a new rendering of a GT350CR based on the 1965-1966 Mustang Fastback on its web site. Following the same theme as the other Classic Recreation cars, the GT350CR combines classic styling with modern amenities such as rack and pinion steering, coilover suspension and disc brakes. Each car also features a 545-horsepower, 427-cubic-inch V8 and plenty of authentic Shelby Performance Parts. No word on when the cars will be first delivered to customers, but Classic Recreations is currently taking order with a starting asking price of $119,000.

You can see a full list of Shelby GT350CR features and specs after the jump.

      The bumper/bumper cap that everyone keeps commenting on is a dupliate of the R-model apron used on GT350's racing in the era.

      That front bumper has to go. It looks nothing like the original, and doesn't seem to fit their business model of building "new" old Shelbys.

        Please refrain from ever commenting again... The bumper is from the R-model that raced in the 60s. This car is going to be a streetable version of the original race car. Lol@Aventador vs. Veyron

      swhite is right, that's an R model front apron seen on the '65 and '66 race cars. I believe the engine is also a windsor based small block stroked to 7.0L

      I miss the days when every muscle wasn't on low profile tires.

      looks nicer than the GT500 they did. that had too many ugly scoops. i'm still not a fan of that front bumper though.

      I would think a recreation would have an updated but not outragous motor. I do not think a 65-66 Shelby came with a 427, more like a hopped up 289

      This is incredible stupid. Why would anyone want a 427 engine w/545 Hp GT 350?! The whole point of this car is that it was a road racer. Which predates the Ford 427 BTW!!!! All these cars are ever going to see is the occasional "stop light gran prix" with some Douche millionaire at the wheel. I'd be more impressed if the thing has a new Ford 3.7, which would have plenty of get up for this thing.... hell toss in a turbo if you want!

      Another re-creation? Enough already. With the price they are asking for this car, it would be much better to build something original instead. Yes, I'm only one voice, but still, doesn't anybody have any real creative talent anymore? Or is the auto industry going the way of Hollywood-no more original ideas, just recycle something from the past? At least Factory Five's next new car will be based on an original idea-and from an amateur at that. Show me something new and I'll be impressed.
