1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Fastback – Eleanor

Posted by admin On October - 25 - 2011

Eleanor is the trademarked name given to a 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 for its role in the 1974 film Gone in 60 Seconds. “Eleanor” is the only Ford Mustang in history to receive Star title credit in a movie. However in the 2000 Gone in 60 Seconds movie, the new Eleanor is a 1967 Shelby GT500.

 



Eleanor was powered by a 351 Cleveland engine, which was secretly modified by Halicki. Features included:

Four-barrel carburetor;

Cruisomatic transmission;

H-D-7 in wheels;

Goodyear rally GT tires;

Double white wall tires;

24-volt electrical system;

Fire extinguisher;

First-aid kit;

Electrical kill switches;

Individual locking rear brakes;

Fish plating of the undercarriage 3” x 3/8” steel;

Removable bullet plating.

 

Eleanor – the woman wanted by most of men. Unreachable, but desired.

 

It was born as a famuous Hollywood movie star, in a movie “Gone in 60 Seconds.“  However, don‘t be fooled – Eleanor is still being produced today. A company in the United States is still producing the copies of the original car. The company‘s car specialists take old Mustangs from the dumpster, take it apart and then put it together, giving it the new sharp look. The outstanding outcome of these cars, which you see in the pictures, is worth the effort. Right?
