Classic Recreations, builder of high-performance custom vehicles, including Shelby continuation cars, has been selected by Carroll Shelby Licensing to introduce a new concept, Shelby Garage, the company announced. Shelby Garage will service, repair and modify late-model American muscle cars and trucks. Distinguished from Shelby American in Las Vegas, which converts vehicles into officially licensed Shelbys that are included in the Shelby Worldwide Registry, Shelby Garage will meet the needs of a variety of late muscle car and truck enthusiasts who are looking for performance and appearance upgrades to their current vehicle.
“Carroll Shelby was the father of American muscle, so it only makes sense for the Shelby brand to evolve into providing service, performance and aesthetic upgrades for all American muscle vehicles,” said Jason Engel, founder and VP of design and engineering at Classic Recreations. “When asked to develop this brand, the focus was filling a need for people who’ve had a hard time finding a shop that understands the unique needs of a high-performance vehicle in contrast to the average driver. Just like Carroll did with the early Ford Mustangs, our goal is to help enthusiasts make their vehicles truly one of a kind.”
The garage will be staffed with trained technicians who have years of experience working on officially licensed Shelby and other high-performance vehicles, the company said. The first Shelby Garage is located in Dallas, Texas, where Shelby got his start. The facility is over 95,000 sq. ft. with plans to expand with locations nationwide.
Depending on the budget, customers can order officially licensed Shelby, Ford Performance and other aftermarket parts directly from Shelby Garage as well as schedule installation and service appointments out of the Dallas, Texas location. Additionally, Shelby Garage features a full online merchandise store with officially licensed Shelby apparel and accessories as well as exclusive gear from Classic Recreations.
