COMING SOON/EXPECTED :
1967 Custom build Eleanor GT500E Fastback 5-Speed with 600HP 427Cui V8 ! in an amazing looking high-quality Dark red metallic paint color with painted on Shelby strips. WOW! What an amazing looking car. Only around 3.000 miles driven after it was built. It is brand new
The car is built with everything you could ever wish for and is extremely fast and build to be driven as it was intended. The car we present to you here might well be one of the best driving Eleanor we ever had the pleasure of offering to our clients. The combination of an upgraded high-end steering and suspension system and the lightweight 427cui stroker engine and manual 5-speed trans is just a perfect combination. It is very usable on the highways because its overdrive 5-speed trans, but its also ready to hit the track and be driven hard and fast. To safely stop all that power, this beauty is also equipped with a 4 wheel power disc brake set from Wilwood.
Just look at the options list below and you'll see why this is a very special Eleanor and build with perfection. More than 200k was spent on the build alone and the paint job on this car is also stunning and more than 30k was invested in that alone and it shows. The complete build of this car was done with the utmost best in parts and eye for details. The car was build based on a true and correct 1967 V8 Mustang fastback so not, as many Eleanors are today, build on the base of a coupe with a plastic fastback roof or build on an ex-6 cylinder car platform. No, sir, this car is a real fastback!
And just look at the interior of the car! Wow, its all custom and handmade and a true one of a kind, but factory-style correct, interior. With special custom Autometer gauges in the dash, a roll bar, and race seat belts and a wooden Shelby Cobra steering wheel. This car really is something special as you can see with a great eye for detail and it gives you the feeling of owning something that's built with quality in mind.
With 11 Actual Eleanor's built for the famous Movie Gone in 60 seconds with actor Nicolas Cage behind the steering wheel. All the cars that were built were different from each other and used for special stages in the movie. Cars built for jumps and others for the driving action, a show car for the up close shots and a couple fore promotional goals and for pictures. All were built from base standard Mustang fastback's and NOT as many people think or want to believe from the car where it was based on, the 67 Shelby's GT500.
All cars that were built for the movie were more or less powerless small block cars. Some of the movie car's had a manual 4-speed trans and some even had automatic transmissions. The engines used in these cars were either the base 289 cui, the base 302 cui and some used the larger 351cui Ford engines. However the car we show you here has almost twice the power than the movie cars ever had !.
So an Eleanor is not a transformed real Shelby GT500 or any other type of special or unique car brand, but a car based/cloned on a fantasy from the movie car designers based and close to the shapes and forms of the actual Shelby GT500 The even copied the name from the Shelby, the GT500, but an E was added (E for Eleanor) so you could tell the difference. And although Caroll Shelby gave his approval on the design, they were never real Shelby cars to begin with.
As you can see, Caroll Shelby also signed the dash of the car we show you here, meaning he liked it and approved the design and had respect for the way it was built. How cool is that! All cars are base ford mustang Fastback's, with body kits added to make them look more aggressive and in style with the famous true 67/68 Shelby Mustang's and not the other way around. But besides that, an Eleanor looks fantastic, that's for sure and its a highly desirable car to own, drive and enjoy, there is nothing to argue about that.
The suspension systems were mostly stock style Mustang suspensions with rear leaf springs and manual or power steering boxes. Only a couple of car's that were built and actually driven had some better, more performance orientated type of suspension upgrades, but nothing really special as you see now on some of the Eleanor tributes that were built after the movie cars. However all of the cars in the movie were painted in the popular pepper gray metallic color and all had the black Shelby style stripes, and of course the Eleanor style body kit and front and rear end.
So all in all EVERY Eleanor that was build for use in or on the movie set was different, so building a tribute to these cars is more or less a freehand of taste, budget, and style as none of them were the same. This is the reason why you see so many different Eleanor's today as everybody gives there own swing or style and detail to these cars. With the actual real-deal movie car's being priced for well over a million dollars or more, and almost never seen for sale on the market. The car we present to you here is, therefore, a rare chance to own one and it's also way more advanced over the factory build cars.
