The special edition limited to just 10 units, spending $625,000 on this vintage beauty has been created in support to save lives.

In an era dominated by modern, sleek designs, the enduring appeal of classic cars persists. The reimagined 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500 serves as a testament to the seamless blend of vintage charm and contemporary performance. It stands as a symbol of how classic cars continue to capture the imagination of enthusiasts in the 21st century.

Texas-based Classic Recreations has reimagined this iconic muscle car, creating a masterpiece that not only revs up any driver’s heart but also contributes to a noble cause.


In a move that transcends the automotive realm, Classic Recreations has partnered with the American Heart Association. For each of the 10 units sold, $100,000 will be donated to the “Life is Why” campaign, supporting critical research and initiatives aimed at improving heart health.

Breaking down the pricing reveals the impact of each purchase. While the $625,000 price tag may seem steep, knowing that $100,000 from each sale goes directly to the American Heart Association adds a layer of purpose to the acquisition. Buyers become not only owners of a rare classic but also contributors to a significant cause.

Spreading Awareness

For collectors, this limited edition Mustang GT500 holds a special allure. Beyond its rarity, there’s the potential for appreciation in value over time. As automotive history has shown, certain classics become not just timeless treasures but also wise investments.

While automotive enthusiasts are likely to be drawn to the limited edition, the collaboration with the American Heart Association brings a broader audience into the fold. This campaign not only raises awareness within the automotive community but also encourages those outside it to contribute to a crucial cause.
