Gone in 60 Seconds Ford Mustang "Eleanor" On Auction Block
The Dana Mecum 26th Original Spring Classic Auction will feature a ton of exciting and exotic cars. Included in this year's auction will be the rarest 1967 Ford Mustang "Eleanor" from the Gone in 60 Seconds movie. How many thousands do you think it will see for?
The movie certainly captured the attention of U.S. muscle car fans and vaulted the Shelby Mustang fastback into the main stream. Cinema Vehicle Services worked with famed automotive designer Chip Foose to build 11 of the classic cars. Of those only three were working cars and the car being auctioned off is the last remaining vehicle.
According to Torquenews.com, this Mustang was really a one-of-a-kind model driven by Nicolas Cage. It features "centrally-mounted driving lights, pumped fender flares and a 5.7-liter V8 engine, which produced 400 horsepower. The Mustang’s interior includes a fire extinguisher, a Go-Baby-Go shift knob button for Line Lock and a nitrous injection system switch." This car was used for a variety of things including close-ups, posters, promotional materials. The winner of the auction will get a special plaque, certificate of authentic as well as the vehicle.
While it is anyone's guess what this car will see for, a good estimate can be guaged by looking at other "Eleanor" auctions. Another 1967 Ford Mustang fastback featured in the movie sold for over $216,000 at auction.
The Dana Mecum 26th Original Spring Classic Auction is scheduled for May 14-19 in Indianapolis, IN.
