The main star of the movie Gone in 60 seconds, Eleanor was the big prize of a master car thief (Cage). Eleven units were built for use on the set, of which only 3 were actually functional, and it is estimated to bring in around 100.000 dollars at the Dana Mecum 26th Original Spring Classic Auction.

Built by Cinema Vehicle Services and Chip Foose, the Mustang sports a 5.7 liter V8 engine capable of 400 horsepower. Besides the authenticity certificate you will also receive a plaque which has Eleanor’s VIN. So even if it isn’t really a Shelby, this Ford Mustang GT500 is a movie icon and any owner should be proud of it.
