1968 Ford Eleanor GT500E Fastback 5-Speed Reserved
- General Information
New in our showroom!
This new custom build Eleanor GT500E is a genuine v8 J code performance Mustang fastback, that is hooked up to a manual 5-speed transmission (overdrive on the 5th gear) It is a stunning Eleanor that is painted in the movie correct Pepper gray metallic paint with black stripes.
This is a fresh built car. The base is an original 1968 J code Performance 302 cui V8 fastback Mustang, just like some actual movie cars were made of. This ain't a transformed coupé or a new dynacorn bodied car. It has a genuine classic 68’ Fastback vin and title. The car is brand new and has only around 50 miles (ca. 80 km) of test drives on the clock.
The complete car was build from scratch with a correct '68 J code Mustang fastback as base. All the metalwork was done and the body kit was applied with great sense for quality and It just looks stunning. This Eleanor is laser straight and 100% rust free all the way. Just look at the pictures top and underside and you'll see this is a great looking and good build car.
The car was build completely correct in style as the actual movie cars and it received a Quality paint job in its correct Pepper Gray metallic paint color with black Eleanor stripes and a GT500E side decals. Just like the movie car.
As you all probably know the Eleanor car was purpose build for the movie gone in 60 seconds with actor Nicolas Cage as the main actor. However, the car was designed after the famous 67/68 Shelby GT500 cars. A car that in its original form was the gift that Nicolas Cage got from his Brother at the end of the movie. Caroll Shelby only build one Super snake GT500 in his life, and this car was named after that one special build car because it is much more than just an Eleanor alone.
So the Eleanor name is not a car brand as some people think, but a car designed for the movie only around that Shelby GT500 cars. The build around 11 cars for the movie alone. Some cars were destroyed by the stunt drivers during the making of the movie and others were only mock-up cars for special show shots and photo purposes. SO after the movie was completed there were only a few actual movie cars left and maybe 1-2 that were still drivable.
Most of the cars that did the actual driving were plain Mustang Fastbacks (Not Shelby GT500's) that had a plain Jane Ford engine inside, and some were automatics and some were manual transmission cars. So besides some special suspensions and steering packages for the cars that were needed in the actual driving scenes, not 1 of the 11 build cars was in fact the same, some were 67' bodies, others 68' and the all were in different condition before the where build. The only thing he had in common was that the were all painted the Famous Pepper gray metallic paint with the black Shelby stripes, and of course the all had the Eleanor style body kit.
After the movie was done, there were only a few cars left, that were all sold to the moviemakers, actors and museums. These cars, which are in fact just plain changed Mustang fastbacks, with no actual performance in them whatsoever, are now very expensive, and we have seen them being sold for more than a million...
So the car we present to you here is of course not one of these movie cars, but it was build just the same, as a tribute car to the famous Shelby GT500 cars. However, it was build to even higher specifications and performance as the actual movie cars ever were. The car was also built as correct as possible to the actual movie cars, and it's painted in the correct Pepper gray metallic paint with black stripes. All in all a very clean and straight car!
If this was one of the actual movie cars left, today it would cost well over a million or more we estimate. But this car is a tribute to the Eleanor movie cars and of course build to tribute the real Shelby's GT500 cars. It is also built with all new parts, new glass, chrome, trim, interior, wheels, brakes and complete rebuild engine and drive line, so it is just an all new build car.
The price to completely custom build it are also much higher than the cars you see in the actual movie. This car also is not just a nice body kit on a plain old base Mustang with a nice paint job. No sir this car is a fully pro-hand build custom build car with only new and special custom parts and a great V8 and powerful drive train with a manual 5 speed instead of the factory 4 speeds.
The car is also equipped with many special details and a complete new interior, new carpets, new dash bezels, new pro touring style gauges and build in tacho from autometer, new custom bucket seats and much more. It also comes with brand new custom wheels and new performance tires, all new and upgraded suspension with front coil over suspension and all new power steering systems and a fresh brake system with front power disc brakes, new fuel system and all new brake lines and hoses.

The car is also equipped with a brand-new set of headers and all new dual side exhausts with a stunning V8 sound.
This Eleanor is priced very attractively for a completely new rebuild car and although it was build with many high-end components, this car was also built for those who want a real correct looking Eleanor with great performance and all the correct looks, but can't afford the prices of the even more high-end build cars.
