Pick of the Day: 1967 Ford Mustang “Eleanor”

An officially licensed "Eleanor" re-creation from Gone In 60 Seconds

-

It’s not a great movie, or even particularly good, but I’ve seen Gone In 60 Seconds (Nicolas Cage version) too many times. It has fallen under rewatchable status for me and despite it’s over the top plot and unique cinematic execution it’s entertaining. And ultimately movies are for entertainment and this one has a few fun parts.

Of course Gone In 60 Seconds will always be linked to Eleanor. Rightly so, as a solid custom Mustang with some Shelby taillights and the ability to out run a helicopter is an unforgettable pony.

The Pick of the Day is a 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback “Eleanor” listed for sale on ClassicCars.com by a dealer in Carrollton, Texas. (Click the link to view the listing)

“This vehicle was granted an Official License Certificate of Authenticity issued by Eleanor Licensing LLC,” the listing states. “This GT500 was built by Weaver Customs in Salt Lake City, UT, and has over 4,000 documented man-hours invested in its construction. The build was done to show-car specifications, including gaps, panel fitment, paint and body with great attention to detail.”

The custom exterior is the same as Nicolas Cage’s Eleanor. It’s finished in Axalta Pepper Gray with black stripes, G.T. 500E body decals, and Eleanor Tribute Edition badging. The exacting movie details continue with a custom hood featuring Eddie Motorsport billet hood hinges, tucked and narrowed steel bumper, and side pipes.

This Eleanor Tribute Edition has a black interior with front bucket seats, and features an Ididit tilt steering column, Dakota Digital gauges and Nu-Relics power windows.

It’s powered by a Ford Performance Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine. A TKO 600 6-speed manual transmission with a hydraulic Centerforce clutch sends power to the rear wheels via a 9″ Ford rear end with 3.70 gears. The attention to detail extends to the gear shift with the “Go-Baby-Go” nitrous button, but please check your local laws to see if NOS is legal to use in your area.

A licensed “Eleanor” Mustang is not cheap, as the dealer has an asking price of $389,995 for this highly custom Mustang with a movie connection.

  1. Awful lot of money for a car that really has nothing to do with the movie except it is an attempt to copy the car in the movie. Had to laugh at “Official License Certificate of Authenticity issued by Eleanor Licensing LLC,” meaning an authentic attempt to copy? Anyway, really nice build, thanks for picking it to show us. Nowhere near worth the price.

  2. This is one of those eye of the beer holder cars and they have had too much beer!! It’s almost criminal what they are asking for this car and it’s not even a real Shelby. I can buy the motor and transmission for less than 20k..75-80k would be a stretch for this price at sell.
