The past two years have been very exciting for Mustang fans. Thanks to a man by the name of Craig Jackson, two of the most exciting Shelby Mustangs ever made, the Green Hornet and Little Red, were discovered and brought back to their former glory.
Since 2018, the two machines, the “only Mustang notchback coupes ever produced to wear the Shelby nameplate,” have been on and off mainstream media, as the CEO of auction house Barrett-Jackson progressed with restoration work. For some time, the two cars have (sort of) once again sank into oblivion, as more important things came to pass and stole the headlines.

Until this week, as Jackson and his newfound partner, Danish REC Watches, announced a collaboration that would definitely put the Green and Red back on the map.

Using “excess sheet metal from both cars,” the watchmaker came up with two distinct mechanical timepieces whose details are still being kept under wraps. What we do know is the two will be limited editions: 318 Little Reds will be made, and 282 Green Hornets. The release of full info and the opening of pre-ordering books is scheduled for January 14.

“The Little Red and Green Hornet watch project has been more than a year in development, as we wanted to make sure that we did justice to the pedigree and story of these two incredible vehicles,” said in a statement REC Watches co-founder Jonathan Kamstrup.

“We knew these two cars were special but it was only through working with Barrett-Jackson on developing these timepieces that we truly understood exactly how special. I am very proud that we have been a part of making the story of Little Red and Green Hornet come back to life!”
