Eleanor Mustang Build-Up
A CLASSIC MUSTANG…
WITH A TWIST
There really is no Mustang like Eleanor. While there are many versions of this definitive muscle car, none are as unique as Eleanor’s one-of-a-kind look as she appears in Gone in 60 Seconds. Based on a 1967 Mustang Fastback, the jaw-dropping Eleanor that burst onto the screen in the 2000 remake was the result of extensive modifications to the body, engine, and interior. We have captured every detail of the full-size car to ensure that this superlative build-up will satisfy fans of the movie and of classic Mustangs alike.

The superb attention to detail even goes as far as a “Go Baby Go” gearshift, an NOS switch, and a nitrous oxide tank in the trunk.
Subscribers will have access to exclusive Eleanor material, including video interviews with Ms Halicki herself and specially commissioned footage of technicians discussing their work in Eleanor's workshop where the magic happens! You will hear all about the technical challenges of building the Eleanor, what went on during the movie’s production, and many other unique insights that you simply won’t find anywhere else.
In 2013, an Eleanor from the 2000 Gone in 60 Seconds movie was sold at auction for $1 million.
In the original 1974 movie, Eleanor was portrayed as a 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 (the last of the fastbacks in the 70s), but was played by 1971 Mustang fastbacks which had been customized for the film. Eleanor is the only car to get star title credit in a movie… a credit that passed on to the 2000 Eleanor.
While just two Eleanors were built and used in the original movie, 11 replicas of the Eleanor were built for the Gone in 60 Seconds remake. Only three survived.
