General discription

NEW IN OUR SHOWROOM!

 

This brand-spanking-new build, high-end Eleanor GT500E Supersnake! This beauty is equipped with a 500+ HP strong genuine 428 Big block hooked up to a manual 5-speed transmission ( overdrive 5th). It is an official and licensed Eleanor that was built with no cost spared. The base is an original V8 fastback Mustang, just like some of the actual movie cars were. So this is not just a transformed coupe or a new dynacorn bodied car. It has a genuine classic 68' Fastback Vin and title.


The car was build completely correct in style as the actual movie cars, however the movie cars all were equipped with small block 302 cui or 351 cui engine and this car was build with a Shelby style performance 428 Big block, hence the Super snake name that was added to this great car. As you all probably know the Eleanor car was purpose build for the movie gone in 60 seconds with actor Nicolas Cage as the main actor. However the car was designed after the famous 67/68 Shelby GT500 cars. A car that in its original form was the Gift that Nicolas Cage got from his Brother at the end of the movie. Caroll Shelby only build one Super snake GT500 in his live, and this car was named after that one special build car because it is much more than just a Eleanor alone. 


So the Eleanor name is not a car brand as some people think, but a car designed for the movie only around that Shelby GT500 cars. The build around 11 cars for the movie alone. Some cars were destroyed by the stunt drivers during the making of the movie and others were only mock-up cars for special show shots and photo purposes. Most of the cars that did the actual driving were plain Mustang Fastbacks (Not Shelby GT500's) that had a plain Jane Ford engine inside, and some were automatics and some were manual transmission cars. So besides some special suspensions and steering packages for the cars that were needed in the actual driving scenes, not 1 of the 11 build cars was in fact the same,some were 67' bodies, others 68'  and the all were in different condition before the were build. The only thing the had in common was that the were all painted the Famous Pepper grey metallic paint with the black Shelby stripes, and of course the all had the Eleanor style body kit.


After the movie was done, there were only a few cars left, that were all sold to the movie makers, actors and museums. These cars, which are in fact just plain changed Mustang fastbacks, with no actual performance in them whatsoever, are now very expensive and we have seen them being sold for more than a million... 


So the car we present to you here is of course not one of these movie cars, but it was build just as the were build, as a tribute car to the famous Shelby GT500 cars. However it was build to much higher specifications and performance as the actual movie cars ever were. And we also decided that this car would also look much more special in its red paint with black stripes, as there are already more than enough Pepper gray replica cars build all over the world. This car stands out even more in this color combination and it also makes the shapes and lines of the car more, and better visible.


So the car we present here is, again not one of the real movie cars as the are not on the markets today and would cost well over a million we estimate, but this car is a tribute to the Eleanor movie car and of course build to tribute the real Shelby's GT500 cars. Its quality in build is also much higher and the complete engine, drive line, interior, body and paint quality are on a much higher level as well. But the car is a correct and also official registered Eleanor tribute car and has all the correct details that the movie cars had. But with its 428 performance engine and 5 speed trans its much faster than the movie cars ever were. The price to completely custom build it are also much higher than the cars you see in the actual movie. Its also not just a body kit on a plain mustang with a nice paint job. This car is a fully pro-custom build car. 


The interior of the car is equipped with everything toy could want, things like comfortable Shelby signature race bucket race seats, Autometer gauge dash, a roll-cage, and tilt steering are all there and everything else inside and out is as new. The body lines are perfect and it is painted in a high quality 2 stage dark red paint with a great shine and the race stripes are also painted on. The underside of this car was also completely restored and detailed and also shines as new as the topside of the car. The high-quality Eleanor body kit aligns perfect and looks stunning on this car. Of course its also equipped with things like 4 wheel power disc brakes, modern style rack & pinion power steering, has all new wheels and performance tires and all new performance suspension and steering components and a super sleek dual exhaust system with electronic cut-outs so you can tune the sound however you like (this car sounds amazing) . All in all this is one of the hottest and best build Eleanor's around on the market today and its all new and fresh.


This car cant be compared or confused with just any hobby or home-build Mustang with just a nice Eleanor body kit. This car was professionally build with the best of components and all new rebuild drive line and all new steering and suspension components, all new wiring harnesses and much more. The body is laser straight and its truely one of the best Eleanors we have seen. If you want the best of the best.. and a car with a fantastic and all correct Super snake Big block V8. This might well be the car for you.

  • Guide: Matching numbers

    In the collector car hobby, most investment-minded buyers are acutely interested in a specific car’s history. One of the main aspects of that history is an original or, as most people state it, numbers-matching drivetrain. At pedaltothemetal muscecars we feature a plethora of original and numbers-matching classics including ‘Cudas, Road Runners, Chevelles, Camaros, Corvettes and Trans Ams. And, if a potential buyer knows how to properly identify and interpret certain manufacturing codes, they can further validate their car’s history, or on request we can provide it.

  • Vehicle claims and descriptions

    Vehicle/product descriptions, representations and claims on or offline are based on what can be seen by the human eye, documentation, previous professional experience, opinion, factory claims, and, or, information passed on to us by previous owners or restorers. It's to the best of our knowledge that everything we advertise has all indications of being that claim. Please inquire as to what documentation we have on the vehicle you are purchasing or feel free to ask any additional questions you might have, But by no means you can accept our answers as facts as the are our interpretation and might not match yours. It is with integrity and honesty that we describe our cars, but they are in fact, up to 50 years old, may have had many previous owners, modifications or alterations that are unknown to the us, so it's not possible to verify everything about every car in detail. Thereby the stated conditions or details of a car can never ever be taken as a fact. As always we welcome personal inspections and or independent appraisers prior to a sale. Incase we speak of "Original" or "Matching numbers" it means that we asume that to be the case, but with old classic cars thats by no means a guarantee. So please feel free to verify that in person or with a third party.

    Pttm goes a step further than almost every other seller(s), as we also do a full inspection of our vehicles prior to having them for sale in our showroom and make repairs improvements if needed so. And when a vehicle/product is sold we give it a full service check before you receive it !
