Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Eleanor. Grey version

1970 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Eleanor. Grey version

“Eleanor” is a customized 1971 Ford Mustang Sportsroof  that is featured in independent filmmaker H. B. “Toby” Halicki’s 1974 film Gone in 60 Seconds. The Eleanor name is also used in the 2000 remake for a customized Shelby Mustang GT500.

Though four Mustangs are portrayed in the film as “Eleanor” targets, only two cars were used for filming the movie, with license plates and tires alternated as necessary. Of these two, one car was modified for the stunt driving necessitated by the final chase and wrecked in said process, while the other was kept intact for all external “beauty shots”. The latter car was also used for all but two interior shots.
