Eleanor - one of the original movie cars on eBay
« on: November 08, 2019, 06:12:52 PM »
Yes, the moment that most (especially Brian Glover 😜) have been waiting for: one of the “original movie cars” from Gone in 60 Seconds (Eleanor) is on eBay. No affiliation. The link is below:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1967-Ford-Mustang-Shelby-GT-500/193196669232

Is it possible to have a barn find Eleanor? 😏

Here’s the verbiage:

Opening bid of $45K (currently no bids):

1967 Shelby GT-500 Eleanor movie cars from the 2000 movie Gone in 60 seconds remake staring Nicolas Cage. The car was designed by Steve Stanford (Hot Rod illustrator) and Chip Foose. It was built by Cinema Vehicle Services (CVS). CVS built a total of 13 Eleanors .The 12 used in the movie shoots were built from regular (non Shelby) 1967 Mustang fastbacks. The 13th Eleanor was built for the movie producer from a real GT500.
Whether the two wrecked cars were rebuilt - or whether surviving shells were built up into functional cars

Seller will pay shipping If you require more details .

please give me a call at  706-905-3792. 
Nothing beats a classic!

01 body code?

If they were built out of 67 fastbacks, what is this?

For purposes of the movie, why would they ad AC to the car? A lot about this car looks fishy to me.

The seller is telling the story of the movie cars, I do not see where he is specifically stating this is one of them.  ::)
Instead of being part of the problem, be part of a successful solution.
Current: 69 GT500 #1584
Previous: 68-2623, 69-2177, the partial remains of 68-03278

And, how often does the car seller offer to pay for shipping.  Seems a little fishy to me.

excellent example of the breed and payment is in scheckles or baseball cards...

Must include original movie lot dust.  Otherwise, why not clean up car?
