Old Mustangs that look like brand new cars cost a fortune. The Shelby GT500CR Convertible seen here is something different. It looks like a new car because it is essentially new. The company starts with a 1967 or 1968 Ford Mustang convertible and builds up authentic Shelby GT500CR convertible cars that are listed in the Shelby Worldwide Registry.

While they have vintage bodies, most other parts are all-new with a fuel-injected supercharged V8, rack and pinion steering, race-inspired suspension, disc brakes, and lots more. The classic Mustang shells are completely restored with media blasting, sheet metal replacement, and show winning quality paint and bodywork.

  1. How do these cars go in the Shelby Registry when Shelby American has nothing to do with them? Are all the kit car Cobras going to be in the registry next?
