Tribute To The Iconic Mustang Eleanor
This unique scale model of the 1967 Mustang is a tribute to the legendary car with the nickname ‘Eleanor’ known from the movie ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’. The original movie was made in 1974, but most people probably think about the loose re-make from 2000 starring Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie in a group of car thieves who steals 50 cars within 72 hours.
First Officially Licensed 1:8 Scale Build of the World’s Most Famous Mustang
Eaglemoss who is behind the scale model has created the Eleanor in collaboration with Denice Shakarian Halicki; the wife of the legendary H.B. Halicki, who wrote, directed, and starred in the original 1974 ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ movie.
It is the first officially licensed 1:8 scale build-up of the world’s most famous Mustang which makes it truly unique, a pleasure to build, and a future collector’s item.
