Eleanor From "Gone In 60 Seconds" Set To Hit The Auction Block

Eleanor, the customized 1967 Ford Mustang GT500 that starred alongside Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie in the 2000 remake of "Gone in 60 Seconds," will be hitting the auction block, and there's buzz that it could sell for as much as 100,000 (that's about US$154,000). We guess that with all of Cage's recent and public financial issues, he won't be bidding on this famous movie car.

Out of the 12 Eleanors that were made for the film, five didn't make it through to see the final cut. The one that's being auctioned is car seven, which was used for driving shots, as well as for dialogue and interior action shots with the actors. Making it even more special, this Eleanor is one of only two original cars in private hands.

Modifications that were made to this movie star Mustang included a 351-cubic inch Ford Racing crate motor that was fitted with a "big" camshaft and 700cfm Holley 4-barrel carburetor. Other upgrades that make this movie car special are a coilover suspension system, Willwood disk brakes, Schmidt 178-inch wheels and side exhaust outlets.

And time has been good to Eleanor she still looks as good today as she did in the movie. Sporting a metallic grey exterior that's accented with black stripes, the 1967 Mustang interior carpets and seats are spotless and it still has the "go baby go" switch on the gear lever.

This famous movie car will be sold by COYS at the Autosport International show in Birmingham on Saturday, January 14th.
