General discription

COMPLETELY AS NEW BUILD ELEANOR GT500E COMING SOON !

 

This new custom build Eleanor GT500E ! This beauty is equipped with a strong and correct

( J code ) 302 cui V8 is a genuine V8 J code Mustang fastback hooked up to a manual 5-speed transmission ( overdrive 5th). Really a stunning Eleanor in the movie correct Pepper gray metallic paint. 


This is an all new build car. The base is an original 1968 J code Performance 302 cui 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 test driven for only around 50 miles, so its really a brand new build car. 


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 sence for quality and

it just looks stunning. This Eleanor is laser straight and 100% rustfree all the way. Just look at the pictures top and underside and you'l 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 high end

quality paint job in its correct Pepper Gray metallic paint color with black Eleanor stripes and a GT500E side decall. Just like the movie car(s). 


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 even higher specifications and performance as the actual movie cars ever were. The car was

also build as correct as possible to the actual movie cars and its painted in the correct Pepper

gray metallic paint with black stripes. All in all a very clean and straight car !. 

 

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 also build

with all new parts, new glass, chrome, trim, interior, wheels, brakes and complete rebuild drive line so its 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. Its also not just a body kit on a plain old base Mustang with a nice paint job. This car is a fully pro- hand build custom build car with only new and special custom parts and a great V8 and powerfull 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 ( not on pictures yet) and much more. It also comes with brand new custom wheels and new performance tires, all new and upgraded suspension and steering systems and fresh brake systems, fuel system and steering components. 


The car is also equipped with a new air conditioning kit for more comfort on those long

and hot summer days !. 


This Eleanor will be priced very attractively once its completed and although it was build with

many high end components, this car was also build for those who want an a real correct looking

Eleanor but cant afford the prices of the more high end build cars. 

The car will be in our showroom soon once its completed,upgraded and inspected, but if you want more information , details or pictures, or make a reservation, please contact our sales!

  • 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 !
