Ok­la­homa’s Clas­sic Recre­ations to take pay­ment in Bit­coin

Edmonton Sun - Autonet - - AUTO NEWS - Ni­cholas Maronese

Ok­la­homa’s Clas­sic Recre­ations will be­come one of the first cus­tom-car builders to ac­cept pay­ment in cryp­tocur­rency, let­ting cus­tomers fork over fees in Bit­coin, Ethereum, and other dig­i­tal mon­eys in ex­change for one of the com­pany’s mod­i­fied Mus­tangs.

“Cryp­tocur­ren­cies have come a long way and con­tinue to so­lid­ify them­selves as a le­git­i­mate cur­rency on the global mar­ket,” Ja­son En­gel, the owner of CR, told Dig­i­tal Trends.

“The true beauty of ac­cept­ing cryp­tocur­rency is the univer­sal as­pect of it, which al­lows Clas­sic Recre­ations to con­nect with con­sumers from any­where in the world.”

Most of Clas­sic Recre­ations’ tuned Mus­tangs start at around US$150,000; ve­hi­cles closer to the top of the line, such as its 800-horse­power Shelby-in­spired GT500CR 900S, ap­proach num­bers also twice that.

The com­pany also re­cently got ap­proval from Ford to build li­censed “con­tin­u­a­tion car” ver­sions of the 1969 and 1970 Mus­tang Mach 1, Boss 302 and Boss 429. Pric­ing for those cars has not been an­nounced, but should be re­vealed closer to the ve­hi­cles’ de­but in Novem­ber.
