Your Mustang Shelby Cont Order

The Oklahoma-based Classic Recreations, an officially licensed and factory authorized builder of continuation Shelby Mustangs, has added a dose of modern tech to the ancient platform. The company will now stuff Ford EcoBoost V6s and fours, alongside the traditional iron-block V8s, into the iconic pony car.

The 3.5-liter V6 is equipped with Garrett GT15 turbochargers and produces 365 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque -- a mild step up from the original “HiPo” 289 cid engine’s 271 hp. That number leaps to 600 hp with bigger turbos and a custom tune, if you’re feeling adventurous. While not boasting insane numbers, you could also dive into the 2.0-liter I4 EcoBoost out of the Focus ST. The four-banger equipped recreation Shelby still has more power than the original at 300 hp.

The new dual-overhead cam 5.2-liter flat-plane crank V8 in the Ford Mustang GT350 and GT350 R offers a higher rev range, more power and a better throttle response. But really, it’s all about ...

The line between a continuation and a clone is apparently drawn at an official vehicle identification number from the manufacturer -- in this case Shelby America. While these started out as normal Fords, they receive official Shelby vin-plates for what its worth. 

These hand built recreations are available with manual or automatic transmissions, and can also can really have any engine stuffed in the bay – if you want to pay for it. Check out for more information.
