SEMA Show 2014: 1968 Mustang becomes the Villain
Arguably one of the hottest classic Mustangs at the SEMA Show this year was this, the 1968 Villain resto-mod by Classic Recreations of Oklahoma.
Built by the well known coach builder, the Villain debuts under a new company division called CR Supercars. This arm is dedicated to building exactly what you see here, turn-key supercars that “fuse classic styling from the golden age of American muscle cars”.
The Villain is the first available model from the CR Supercars line, starting life as an original 1968 Mustang Fastback. Like the continuation Shelby’s the company made in the past, they strip the body bare and begin anew.
In the case of the Villain, new composite body panels are added along with carbon fiber trims to create a fresh look to the original design while reducing weight. An all-new bespoke interior goes along with the custom body transformation.
The best part about this SEMA Show car is that you can order one up for yourself. CR Supercars will offer copies of the Mustang Villain in four versions starting with a Ford Racing 420 horsepower BOSS 302 crate engine and six-speed manual transmission.
Suspension comes from Detroit Speed Engineering suspension built around a hydro-formed Aluma-Frame with Corvette-based A-arms up front. In the rear is a QUADRAlink 4-link rear suspension and adjustable coil-overs.
Brakes come from Wilwood using 14” rotors all around, fitting snug under 18” Forgeline wheels. That they kept the wheels at 18” is nice for styling as it looks near original in silhouette. Get the skinny on the Mustang Villain at www.crsupercars.com.
