A CLASSIC MUSTANG… WITH A TWIST
This unique scale model has been created in collaboration with Denice Shakarian Halicki, the wife of the legendary H.B. Halicki, who wrote, directed, and starred in the original 1974 Gone in 60 Seconds movie in which Eleanor first starred. What makes the model so exciting is that it is the first officially licensed 1:8 scale build-up of the world’s most famous Mustang. It means that as well as a joy to build, this model is also destined to become a genuine collector’s item.
Authentic in every detail, your magnificent 1:8 scale model is an exact replica of the beautiful Eleanor – star of the 2000 movie Gone in 60 Seconds. Made from die-cast metal and other high-quality materials, this is the first-ever 1:8 scale build-up model of this screen icon. Features include working lights, open-and-close hood, trunk and doors, turning wheels, and much more. The superb attention to detail even goes as far as a “Go Baby Go” gearshift, a NOS switch, and a nitrous oxide tank in the trunk.

There really is no Mustang like Eleanor, with her 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 detail after detail of the full-size car to ensure that this superlative build-up will satisfy fans of the movie and of classic Mustangs alike.
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.
