For the movie Gone in 60 seconds, 12 cars were originally produced on the basis of Ford Mustang Fastback 1968. The demanding shooting “survived” 7 pieces, which today belong to the jewels of the most prestigious automobile collections. One of them was auctioned for $ 1,000,000 in a US auction in 2010.
The basis is the steel, self-supporting body Mustang Fastback 1967/68. Eleanor Elements, laminated body exhaust tailpipes, bonnet buckles, Shelby’s fully functional fuel neck and Eleanor special mirrors were added. There are also additional PIAA remote lights and a front grill made of polished aluminum.
We’ve changed the wreckage to fantastic experience
Our Eleanor works as a time machine. Upon arrival, the passengers will enjoy the original seats and the driver’s wooden three-wheeled steering wheel Shelby Cobra. There is also a special rev counter Eleanor or manual air conditioning. The Mustang retro car radio takes a lot of fun with the Magnat speaker. The icing on the cake is the Shelby aluminum racing pedals and the 1967 deluxe aluminum trim.
The Shelby GT 500 Eleanor with more than 600 horses under the hood is more addictive than Angelina Jolie in Gone in 60 Seconds. There’s no need for those 60 seconds to fall in love with the Car.
Eleanor goes like a watch. The Big-Block Ford type 390 FE with a 6384 cm3 engine capacity with 500 horsepower (373 kW), with the Edelbrock add-on system even 170 hp more (altogether 670 hp). The chassis boasts SSBC disc brakes with all-wheel-cooled wheels and special Shelby American Racing Equipment wheels. There is also a sports stabilizer, sporty Ford Racing springs and a 9-inch rear axle. The rack is equipped with a Flamingriver booster. All rubber mounts were replaced with polyurethane for chassis stiffness.
