Mustang GT500 Sold For $1 Million $$$

“Eleanor” From Gone In 60 Seconds Sold For $1 Million

This amazing Ford Mustang known as “Eleanor” in the Gone in 60 Seconds remake (the one with Nicolas Cage) sold for $1,000,000 at the Mecum Indianapolis auction.

It is a Mustang GT500 and is actually one of 12 that were built for the movie.

Unfortunately, two of these were destroyed in the climactic bridge jump and junkyard crusher scenes.

The builders were able to mock up Eleanor’s body pieces on a Mustang using clay and wood. Molds were then made to produce a new fiberglass front end filled with high-powered PIAA driving lights, new fender flares, side skirts and scoops, hood and trunk lid. The front suspension was replaced with a lowered and reinforced coilover spring arrangement with power rack and pinion steering; 4-wheel disc brakes were installed and Goodyear Eagle F1 tires mounted on Schmidt 8×17-inch Cobra-style wheels. To give the car big-screen performance, it was treated to a 351/400 HP Ford crate engine, which shares room under the modified hood with a front subframe body brace by Total Control Products, LLC.
