1966 Shelby Mustang GT350CR

 Motor1:Classic Recreations breaks away from the herd with GT350CR Pro-Touring Shelby Mustang.

The GT350CR Pro-Touring Mustang starts life as an original 1965 or 1966 Ford Mustang and through the strategic use of new sheet metal and exacting technique, it is made as solid and straight as a brand-new car. Once the CR crew has a strong starting foundation, the real fun can begin. Starting with the body, Jason and his team begin massaging the Mustang’s classic lines into something more purposeful and aggressive.

As handsome as the exterior of the GT350CR is, the truly exciting parts lay under the car’s body panels. Gone is the Mustang’s pedestrian 289 cubic inch V8, and in its place now lives a 5.0L Coyote crate engine from Ford Racing that produces in excess of 550 horsepower with help from an induction system from the brand-new Ford Voodoo 5.2 liter flat-plane engine found in the 2016 GT350 and GT350R. Even at that power level, the engine is far from finicky thanks to the addition of a FAST electronic fuel injection system that helps keep everything running like a brand new car should.
