FULL RESTORATION, 460 V8, 5-SPEED, PWR WIN, A/C, 4 WHL DISCS, FORD 9", AMAZING!
There were only 11 Eleanor Mustangs built for the '00 hit film Gone in 60 Seconds, only 3 of those were drivable, and after the producers finished filming the high-octane picture only one remained. So of course we wish we had that rare gem today, but then again, this near perfect tribute is about as close as you can get to have some Nicholas Cage style fun.
This car has all the great lines of the original Mustang, but there is no mistaking it for any secretary's car. The customization is apparent from every angle with a body kit by Unique Performance. It starts up front with the dual billet grilles that that make way for a new front bumper and racing lights. And speaking of lights, this also gets a custom set of fog lights and cool-blue driving lamps mounted in specially built front panel. The hood pins look like they were necessary to tame this beastly bulging hood (and we'll tell you exactly why they're needed a little later). The laser straight bodylines even have room to integrate the side exhaust pipes. Out back the flat rear panel and bumper have been de-chromed in true racer fashion. But even without this brightwork, Eleanor shines in many other ways. The superb silver paint with dual black racing stripes has enough gloss to be a mirror. Plus, the shine from 20-inch Boss wheels is enough chrome to grab everyone's attention.
Take one look at the interior and you know Eleanor is a serious gal. Your seating is a set of Sparco racing buckets with a matching set of four-point harnesses. The three-spoke steering wheel has the old-school wood grain appearance, but with an upgrade for better grip. Behind it are new Pro-comp gauges that take the place of the original GT readouts. Eleanor might be a mean machine, but she also knows how to pamper (although you may not know it by the "GO BABY GO" text around the nitrous button on the shift knob). This is a power steering car with ice cold air conditioning, and power windows set in a custom center console. There's a Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo system that's iPod compatible. The amplifier in the trunk runs the massive speakers that you can hear at any speed. But really that's secondary, because your favorite soundtrack will always be exhaust booming from the beastly motor.
While the original 1967 Shelby GT500s had a 427 cubic-inch engine, this super-snake has been super-sized with a 460 V8. Of course the upgrades don't stop there. This one is running an Edelbrock 650cfm double-pump carburetor and Performer intake. The inner workings of the engine have been fully rebuilt, including competition-style aluminum heads, new pistons, rings, rods, roller rocker arms, valves, and timing chain. Keeping the vital fluids flowing is a Holley electric water pump, single stage dry-sump oil pump, and a Be Cool aluminum radiator with electric fan. But out of all these performance upgrades, there is one that's the most obvious. Of course, we're talking about that NOS bottle that is in plain view of the back window. It's clearly visible to intimidate everyone, but that's just where the fun begins. The car is already wired with a missile-style safety switch for arming the gas bottle, and blast-off is via the red button on the stick shift – just like in the movie! There's a five-speed manual transmission to make sure there are enough gears to keep up with a motor that can outrun everyone. Plus, this has a stout 9-inch Ford rear end that won't let you down. Traction is excellent with four-wheel disc brakes and the original 17-inch Cobra style wheels, but you can also elect to install the super sticky 20-inch Toyo Proxes 4 tires included in the later pictures instead. The seller will swap for your choice.
Oh yeah, did we mention that this car only has 50 miles on the odometer since built? We were too busy telling you about all the lust worthy features to mention that you will be the one to really break in Eleanor.
