The 1967 Ford Mustang “Eleanor”, an iconic car from the movie Gone In 60 Seconds, inspired numerous replicas. One of the few authentic models — it was used for both exterior and interior sequences and is known as the “Dream Car” — is being auctioned off in January of 2020.
Cinema Vehicle Services built the car using a 1967 Ford Mustang which was given a complete makeover inspired by the Shelby GT500. It was also given its head-turning pepper gray metallic paint, along with auxiliary lights, a side-exiting exhaust, custom wheels, and Magnaflow mufflers. The 5.8-liter V8 engine has an Edelbrock Performer intake manifold, aluminum heads, MSD ignition system, and a roller camshaft. It’s paired with a five-speed manual transmission.
The interior is adorned with a steering wheel trimmed in wood along with low seatbacks for authenticity. It also features a Hurst shifter emblazoned with a “Go Baby Go” button, an Auto Meter tachometer, and a real nitrous switch that adds up to 125 horsepower.
