Genuine Eleanor Mustang! Built as a surplus car for the Movie - "Gone in 60 seconds". Genuine 4 speed GT 390 fastback recreated as a Shelby GT500E. 428 big block, Nitrous, new suspension, ground pounding, legend of a car! Las Vegas, USA car.
The car has under 500 miles on it since it was completed in 2005. It has never been raced or abused and is in mint condition. During the restoration and creation of this car, everything was disassembled and rebuilt. The engine and transmission are brand new, with $20k spent on the engine alone. Every piece of the braking, fuel, and suspension systems is also brand new. Thanks to the Tremec racing transmission, this car can easily cruise at 60mph at only 2000RPM. It is the perfect combination of classic look and feel with modern enhancements. No expense was spared to build it and it needs nothing but a driver.

The car has been finished in beautiful Pepper Grey Metallic with Black Metallic stripes (DuPont fleet 44490 and 44435) just like the Eleanor in the movie. The paint shines from all angles and the car is absolutely flawless. The car appears to have been well taken care of prior to restoration and shows no signs of rust or rust repair anywhere. Of course, no Eleanor would be complete without the Eleanor kit. This car has the correct headlight bezels, billet aluminum upper and lower grills, front lower valance, hood, front fender flares, rear fender flares, side exhaust skirts, exhaust scoops, lower side scoops, tail lamp panel and Shelby GT500E lights to make this car correct. The kit fits the car like a glove-all of the seams line up perfectly and it's as if the car came from the factory with them. To complete the look, the car sits on the correct 17" Eleanor wheels and new tyres.
This car is as perfect inside as it is outside and under the hood. It has been updated with brushed aluminum dash panels, leather racing seats, a Lacarra wooden Shelby steering wheel and a CD player. A rollbar with 4 point harnesses are also installed for safety. The interior looks brand new.
This car was built in Texas and as you can see not a single dime was spared. I know that to have a car of this caliber built you would be looking at nearly 150k USD. Don't take my word for it, just call around to all of the shops across the U.S. who are booked out for the next five plus years building these awesome pieces of machinery.
