When talking about great movie cars, Eleanor will for many people go straight to the Top 10 list. The 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500 was driven by Nicolas Cage in the movie ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ from 2000. If you have sufficient funds, you can now buy your very own Eleanor.
Fusion Motor Company in California has the right to sell officially licensed Eleanors. With a price tag between $189,000 and $270,000 depending on specs, Fusion Motor Company will rebuild a ’67 or ’68 Mustang Fastback to resemble the vehicle from the ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’. Almost every part of the Mustang is upgraded in the process, and you will end up with 750 horsepower, bigger brakes, track-prepped suspension package, lot’s of carbon fiber and the well known ‘Go baby Go’ button on the gear knob and the classic wooden steering wheel.
Gone in 60 Seconds
In 1974 H.B. Toby Halicki directed the first movie ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’. He played the role of a master car thief with a mission to steal 48 vehicles in a few days. Toby created for this specific role a custom Ford Mustang called ‘Eleanor‘. Eleanor raced into everyone’s heart, with a 40 min epic car chase scene – and achieved celebrity status as the first Mustang to receive star title credits in a film.
