The newest division of Classic Recreations, CR Supercars, is now producing the first two hand-built 1968 Villain Mustangs, following the car’s unveiling at last year’s SEMA Show. The company is also taking pre-orders for the 1969 CR1 Camaro, which will make its official debut at this year’s SEMA Show.
“We are excited to offer customers the opportunity to order customizable 1968 Mustang fastbacks and 1969 Camaros,” said Jason Engel, owner of Classic Recreations. “For years, I had people ask me to hand-build them tailor-made cars and now I’m able to offer my customers Mustangs and Camaros that can be built to their exact specifications. We also hope that with the addition of the CR-1 to the CR Supercars lineup we will be able to introduce the Classic Recreations name to a whole new audience.”
The Villain starts with a 1968 Mustang fastback and adds modern power in the form of a potent Ford Racing Coyote 5.0L engine, a six-speed Tremec manual transmission, Centerforce DYAD clutch, and Strange rear end. Modern conveniences also include excellent air conditioning, supportive seats, modern suspension and brakes, and custom interior touches, according to Classic Recreations.
The Villain is a pro-touring style supercar that can serve as a daily driver without any of the concerns that come with a typical European sports car, according to Classic Recreations. The Villain can also be serviced by any Ford dealer with off-the-shelf parts.-¨
The planned CR1 Camaro by CR Supercars is based on a 1969 Camaro. CR Supercars gives the iconic F-Body a high-revving, angry sounding LS7 engine, a six-speed Tremec transmission, Detroit Speed Engineering suspension, Forgeline Wheels, and Wilwood disc brakes.
The first production CR1 will be delivered to its new owner in Ohio in classic Hugger Orange paint.
Each Classic Recreations CR Supercar build is highly customizable to accommodate customer requests with multiple options for color, trim, and power. For more information, visit www.CRSupercars.com
