The modified 1967 Ford Mustang, known as ‘Eleanor’, which was the driven by Nicolas Cage in the ‘Gone in 60 seconds’ movie, will be offered for auction.
The owner of Cinema Vehicle Services Ray Claridge said he wants to sell the modified 1967 Ford Mustang at Mecum’s Spring Classic auction in Indianapolis. Cinema Vehicle Services and tuner specialist Chip Foose joined hands to create this vehicle, which will be auctioned on May 18th. Although other replicas of this car have been built, this is the real deal, the one used for all close-ups, promotional materials, and posters.
The Mustang is fitted with new fender flares, side skirts and scoops, new fiberglass front end with PIA driving lights and new hood and trunk lid. When it comes to the interior design, the only modifications are a nitrous injection system switch, Go-Baby-Go shift knob button for Line Lock, a fire extinguisher and an Autometer Sport Comp Monster tachometer.
“Eleanor has become one of the most widely recognized movie star muscle cars in the world, so when the decision was made to offer the ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ Hero car for sale, Mecum’s Spring Classic auction in Indianapolis seemed like the perfect venue,” commented Ray Claridge, owner of Cinema Vehicle Services.
