Classic Recreations is an Oklahoma company specializing in other mods, especially when it comes to Shelby Mustang. This year, however, they go further and propose a Ford Mustang Boss 302, a Mustang Boss 429 and a Mustang Mach 1, all from 1969-1970 and all brand new with the blessing of Ford.

Unlike other classic models that are once again available in the market as new cars, such as the Jaguar XKSS, Jaguar D-Type or Aston Martin DB4 GT, this trio of classic Mustangs will equip current mechanics.

The Mustang Boss 302 will be available with the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 of the current model or a 363 ci (5.9 liter) engine based on an original V8 302 ci (4.9 liter). As for the Mach 1, you can equip any available engine in the current Ford Mustang range, including the 4-cylinder EcoBoost if the customer wants to drive a heresy with wheels around.

The Ford Mustang Boss 429 is probably the most sporting and sought after Mustang. It equipped a V8 of 429 ci (7.0 liters) devised to face the V8 HEMI of Chrysler that dominated then the NASCAR. It developed 400 CV and had an oil radiator, among other sweets. It is considered the sportiest Mustang in history.

A little less than 1,400 units were manufactured and today, one copy can exceed half a million dollars, like this unit sold by Barrett-Jackson in 2015. The continuation model made by Classic Recreations will equip an original V8 429, but with Current interior moving parts (pistons, connecting rods, valves, crankshaft, etc). The chassis will also be new (yes, in the United States you can buy a new classic Ford Mustang chassis).

As for Boss 302 and Mach 1, they do not usually reach the Boss 429 prices, but they are two of the most iconic Mustangs. The Boss 302 was Ford's answer to the Chevrolet Camaro. And it is that the Chevy was approaching him dangerously in the competitions of the SCCA Trans-Am series.

The first of these three Mustangs, the Boss 429, will be presented at the next SEMA Show, in November 2018.
