You’ve seen some of Classic Recreations work lately as they’ve been cranking out beautiful reproduction Mustangs using original parts, but according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation they may be guilty of VIN swapping. VIN swapping is when the VIN numbers have been taken off original vehicles and placed on new vehicles to make them appear to be of original vintage. Then there was a report that the owner of CR admitted he knew of the swapping activity.
To which Classic recreations made the following statement:
“The quote attributed to Jason Engel in a single local Oklahoma news report is second hand information that was misquoted by the local media outlet. Classic Recreations denies any and all wrongdoing. Like thousands of other restoration shops and hobbyists across the country, Classic Recreations builds vintage cars with original and aftermarket parts – the restoration marketplace should pay attention to what is happening here. The shop has built a reputation for building the highest quality vehicles and delivering unrivaled customer satisfaction and will continue to do so in the future.”
Guess we’ll have to see what the OSBI comes up with, we’ll keep you posted if and when we find anything else out!
