Good to see they will put the steering wheel on the correct side for $12500 ;)

Old Mustangs that look like brand new cars cost a fortune. The Shelby GT500CR Convertible seen here is something different. It looks like a new car because it is essentially new. The company starts with a 1967 or 1968 Ford Mustang convertible and builds up authentic Shelby GT500CR convertible cars that are listed in the Shelby Worldwide Registry.

While they have vintage bodies, most other parts are all-new with a fuel-injected supercharged V8, rack and pinion steering, race-inspired suspension, disc brakes, and lots more. The classic Mustang shells are completely restored with media blasting, sheet metal replacement, and show winning quality paint and bodywork.

With such attention to detail and high-end hardware, the cars are very expensive, with prices start at $269,000. The money gets the following:
Drivetrain:
  • 427 cubic-inch Crate Engine (790 horsepower)
  • F1-R Procharger w/ 3 Core Intercooler (21PSI)
  • Fast XFI Fuel Injection
  • Tremec Manual Transmission (automatic available)
  • 9″ Fab 9 Rear w/ 3:50 Gear Ratio and Posi Traction Installed
  • Concept One Pulley System
Interior:
  • Carroll Shelby Signature Seats
  • Simpson 5 Point Camlock Seatbelts
  • Carroll Shelby Signature Gauges
  • 200mph Speedometer
  • Woodgrain Aluminum Steering Wheel
  • Old Air Products A/C System
  • Deluxe 1967 Door Panels
  • Deluxe 1967 Dash and Trim
  • Carroll Shelby GT500CR Console
  • Carroll Shelby GT500CR Floormats
  • Carroll Shelby Padded Rollar

The cars get all sorts of other goodies with Wilwood disc brakes all around, longtube headers, custom body components, and a high-end custom stereo. Special Shelby 427 wheels in 17×8 front and 17×11 rear are fitted with BFGoodrich tires all around. Classic Recreations will build one in right-hand drive for an extra $12,500.

Watched a few shows where the cars are that bad there is virtually nothing original after the rebuild but they still class them as that year / model .

Perhaps I have misread the text. Are these Shelby's to begin with? Year and model I'm OK with, but if it isn't a Shelby to start with, then it doesn't belong in the registry.

If Shelby American had built it, I'd agree with the registry as long as there was an astrix denoting it was built in a later year, this is a replica.

And just because the steering wheel is on the right side, doesn't make it the correct side...😀😀
