General discription

New in our showroom!


This new custom build Eleanor GT500E is a genuine v8 J code performance Mustang fastback, that is hooked up to a manual 5-speed transmission (overdrive on the 5th gear)  Its a stunning Eleanor that is painted in the movie correct Pepper gray metallic paint with black stripes.


This is an fresh built car. The base is an original 1968 J code Performance 302 cui V8 fastback Mustang, just like some actual movie cars were made of. This aint a transformed coupé or a new dynacorn bodied car. It has a genuine classic 68’ Fastback vin and title. The car is brand new and has only around 50 miles of test drives on the clock.  


The complete car was build from scratch with a correct '68 J code Mustang fastback as base.  All the metalwork was done and the body kit was applied with great sense for quality and It just looks stunning. This Eleanor is laser straight and 100% rust free all the way. Just look at the pictures top and underside and you'll see this is a great looking and good build car. 


The car was build completely correct in style as the actual movie cars and it received a Quality paint job in its correct Pepper Gray metallic paint color with black Eleanor stripes and a GT500E side decals. Just like the movie 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 life, and this car was named after that one special build car because it is much more than just an 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. SO after the movie was completed there were only a few actual movie cars left and maybe 1-2 that were still drivable.


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 where build. The only thing he had in common was that the were all painted the Famous Pepper gray 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 moviemakers, 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 the same, as a tribute car to the famous Shelby GT500 cars. However, it was build to even higher specifications and performance as the actual movie cars ever were. The car was also built as correct as possible to the actual movie cars and it's painted in the correct Pepper gray metallic paint with black stripes. All in all a very clean and straight car! 

 

If this was one of the actual movie cars left, today it would cost well over a million or more we estimate. But this car is a tribute to the Eleanor movie cars and of course build to tribute the real Shelby's GT500 cars. It is also built with all new parts, new glass, chrome, trim, interior, wheels, brakes and complete rebuild engine and drive line, so it is just an all new build car. 


The price to completely custom build it are also much higher than the cars you see in the actual movie. This car also is not just a nice body kit on a plain old base Mustang with a nice paint job. No sir this car is a fully pro-hand build custom build car with only new and special custom parts and a great V8 and powerful drive train with a manual 5 speed instead of the factory 4 speeds.


The car is also equipped with many special details and a complete new interior, new carpets, new dash bezels, new pro touring style gauges and build in tacho from autometer, new custom bucket seats and much more. It also comes with brand new custom wheels and new performance tires, all new and upgraded suspension with front coil over suspension and all new power steering systems and a fresh brake system with front power disc brakes, new fuel system and all new brake lines and hoses. The car is also equipped with a new air conditioning kit for more comfort on those long And hot summer days! 


The paint on the car is smooth and has a great shine and all the emblems, trim and features are new. The engine packs enough power to push you back in your seat when you put the PedalToTheMetal, and combined with its 5 speed manual trans just makes it a great but also very comfortable ride. The car is also equipped with a brand-new set of headers and all new dual side exhausts with a stunning V8 sound. 


This Eleanor is priced very attractively  for a completely new rebuild car and although it was build with many high-end components, this car was also built for those who want a real correct looking Eleanor with great performance and all the correct looks, but can't afford the prices of the even more high-end build cars. 


This Eleanor is priced right and comes loaded with many additional options, is a completely new pro-custom build car and was tested and completely inspected before it entered our showroom floor. Its not just a nice body kit with a fresh paint job on any old and worn Mustang, like many for sale are these days, no Sir, this car is way more than that and will give great joy and its also a great investment for your money as its an all new pro build car. 


Just another stunning high-quality Eleanor for sale by PTTM! Please keep in mind that the car is not yet completed and some details can be changed or added against the last pictures taken and shown here online!

  • 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 !
