And, they’ll be built from original Mustang bodies or fully licensed new bodies

If you missed out on owning a 1969-1970 BOSS 302, a 1969-1970 BOSS 429, and a 1969-1970 Mach 1 Mustang, you’re about to be blessed with manna from heaven. Ford has announced a licensing program with noted coachbuilder Classic Restorations to build turn-key versions of the three aforementioned classic muscle cars. Each of the models will be built to the specifications of each customer using Ford’s newest chassis and drivetrain technology, as well as the automaker’s licensed reproduction parts.

We’re tempted to jump on our tables and dance the day away. That’s how big this partnership is, not just for us, but for everyone who never had the opportunity to own any one of these classic muscle cars. Now, all of us, even those who have kept their OGs tucked in their garages, have a chance to at least own spiritual versions of each, complete with authentic Ford bits and pieces.

“We chose to offer these new models because we wanted to expand our Ford offerings beyond just Shelbys,” said Classic Recreations owner Jason Engel. “The BOSS 429 is one of the coolest and rarest Mustangs ever produced, but they have gotten so valuable that most owners won’t drive them. This offers people the chance to own an incredibly rare car that they can actually drive, and with modern chassis and engine tech these cars will actually be faster and easier to drive than the original.”

Owners can even get the original FE big block if that’s what they want.

The first vehicle to come out under the license is a BOSS 429 Mustang, which Classic Recreations plans to unveil at the 2018 SEMA Auto Show in Las Vegas this November. From there, the coachbuilder will start taking orders for the BOSS 302 and the Mach 1. The 302, in particular, will be offered with engine options: a current generation Coyote V-8 from Ford Performance or a 363-cubic inch stroke engine that will use a 302 block. Even better, the Mach 1 Mustang will come with more engine options, including any engine option offered by Classic Recreations, as well as the latest EcoBoost units that Ford has at its disposal. Heck, owners can even get the original FE big block if that’s what they want. As for the 429, Classic Recreations will offer a brand-new body that’s’ licensed by Ford. A custom built BOSS 429 engine with an updated valve train and engine management systems are also on the table.

The obvious question here is how much each of these models will cost. Well, we don’t know yet. Classic Recreations is keeping that under wraps, though if anyone’s interested in buying one, they can reach out to the coachbuilder to discuss the finer details. Just so everyone’s on the same page, each model is completely built-to-order. You have to tell Classic Recreations what you want, and only then will it proceed with actually building whatever model you choose. The whole build process takes around four months or nearly 2,500 working hours. It’s a painstaking process, sure, but the results are going to be worth all the trouble and cost of buying one.

CLASSIC RECREATIONS ANNOUNCES FORD-LICENSED PROGRAM TO BUILD FIRST EVER CONTINUATION BOSS AND MACH 1 MUSTANGS
Oklahoma-based coachbuilder unveils plans to build turn-key Boss 302, Boss 429 and Mach 1 Mustangs as the first models in its newly announced continuation car program licensed by Ford Motor Company.

Yukon, Okla. (April, 2018) – Classic Recreations has been officially licensed by Ford Motor Company to build the first ever turn-key versions of some of the blue oval brand’s most legendary vehicles, beginning with the 1969-1970 BOSS 302, 1969-1970 BOSS 429 and 1969-1970 Mach 1 Mustangs. Each vehicle will be built to customer specifications using the latest chassis and drivetrain technology paired with new Ford-licensed reproduction parts – giving owners the opportunity to own and drive the most iconic muscle cars ever built, updated to run and drive like modern supercars.
Classic Recreations will debut the first vehicle built under the new license, a BOSS 429 Mustang, at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas this November. Classic Recreations is the only licensed continuation car builder to offer the highly sought after BOSS 429 Mustang. The “BOSS 9,” as it is sometimes called in collector car circles, will be built from an original 1969 or 1970 Mustang body, though customers can opt for a brand-new body licensed by Ford, and will come equipped with a custom-built BOSS 429 engine featuring updated valvetrain and cutting-edge EFI and engine management systems.
“We chose to offer these new models because we wanted to expand our Ford offerings beyond just Shelbys,” said Classic Recreations owner Jason Engel. “The BOSS 429 is one of the coolest and rarest Mustangs ever produced, but they have gotten so valuable that most owners won’t drive them. This offers people the chance to own an incredibly rare car that they can actually drive, and with modern chassis and engine tech these cars will actually be faster and easier to drive than the original.”
In addition to the BOSS 429, Classic Recreations will also offer the BOSS 302 and Mach 1. Like the BOSS 429, the BOSS 302 and Mach 1 Mustangs will both begin with original 1969-1970 Mustang bodies or can be built with new Ford-licensed bodies. The 302 will be offered with two engine options – a current generation Coyote 32 valve Ford Performance V8 crate engine or a 363-cubic inch stroker engine that utilizes a 302 block. The Mach 1 Mustangs can be equipped with any engine option offered by Classic Recreations, including the latest EcoBoost models from Ford or an original FE big block.
Anyone interested in purchasing one of these new models can reach out to the shop to discuss purchasing and timing. For more information about Classic Recreations, please visit www.Classic-Recreations.com.
