There aren’t very many cars with an identity as distinct and as iconic as Eleanor’s. Made famous from the “Gone in 60 Seconds” movie franchise, Eleanor is the only Ford Mustang in history to receive star title credit in a movie. This 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback is a complete embodiment of the car used in the year 2000 version of the film by Jerry Bruckheimer starring Nicholas Cage, with extensive work done both inside and out to produce one of the most faithful examples of Eleanor you’ll find in the country.
The original paint has been replaced with DuPont Pepper Gray Metallic with DuPont Black Metallic stripes, which is the original paint used by the car in the film. A custom body kit has been installed which includes a modified front end, side air scoops, and wider body panels. New custom headlights have been installed, complemented by a 1967 Mercury Cougar tail light panel at the rear. Completing the look are its American Racing Shelby Cobra wheels. No expense was spared to make the cabin as authentic as possible. The old interior has been completely restored and reupholstered with new leather. Powering the car is the same engine found in the original Mach1 Eleanor from the original 1974 film, with added modifications to increase performance. A Ford 351 cubic-inch Windsor engine has been stroked to increase its displacement to 377 cubic-inches, supplemented by a driver-side mounted Novi 1200 Paxton Supercharger.
More than a car, Eleanor has been the embodiment of the muscle car ideology for generations of motoring enthusiasts, and it’s rare to find a car that perfectly reflects the same excitement and thrill that the original brougth to the silver screen.
