The whole scene of “Eleanor” Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 replicas is pretty exaggerated. However, the Eleanor you’re looking at is not a replica but one of the real cars from the 2000 blockbuster movie Gone in 60 Seconds.
Eleven identical Eleanor Mustangs were built for film production by Cinema Vehicle Services, Steve Stanford, and Chip Foose. It is claimed that only three of these cars were in service and this appears to be one of them.
The car is for sale from Al Ain Class Motors, one of the premium car dealerships. Very few details about the car are given on the list, such as the role that Eleanor played in the Nicolas Cage movie starring. We have reached out to the agent to try to find out more.
Listed at an asking price of $498,551, the car isn’t cheap. However, one of the other Eleanor models from the movie sold at a Mecum auction earlier this year for $852,500, making this example a bargain. A look through the photos shows that it has Carroll Shelby’s signature on the dashboard, something the car sold in January lacked.
If this example has the same powertrain as the other movie cars, it has a 351 cubic inch V8 with Edelbrock intake and nitrous. The listing claims the car is good for 641 hp and has just 1,000 miles (1,609 km) on the clock.
