Classic Recreations is undergoing an expansion including new car models, the hiring of additional personnel and an additional 24,000 sq. ft. manufacturing and showroom facility in North Texas, the company announced. This expansion will increase production of its classic muscle cars, as well as accepting high-performance restoration projects.
“In spite of the challenging economic climate, the hunger for our handcrafted vehicles continues to be off the charts,” said Jason Engel, founder, co-owner and lead designer at Classic Recreations. “To meet that global demand, we expanded our team in Oklahoma and established an amazing new facility in North Texas. Best of all, we grew the company all without a cent of debt. In addition to building cars, the Texas facility will offer world-class modifications, repair and restoration of all hot rods, muscle cars and classics.”
Classic Recreations’ team of technicians and craftsmen modify and build high-performance 1960s and early 70s era Resto-Mods. The built-to-order vehicles incorporate the latest technology including contemporary motors, materials, suspension, comfort features, brakes and more, the company says.
In addition to the new infrastructure, Classic Recreations recently expanded its product line to include more models, such as Shelby continuation Cobras, and an all-carbon-fiber bodied Shelby GT500CR.
To expand the North Texas and Oklahoma facilities, Classic Recreations will have hired nearly 30 additional employees by the end of 2020. The North Texas facility is located in Garland, Texas, 30 minutes northeast of downtown Dallas and within Dallas County.
