1967 Mustang Eleanor Slideshow

January, 2020

This is one of the original 11 cars built for use in Touchstone Pictures’ 2000 film “Gone in 60 Seconds.  Eleanor’s design was refined and crafted by Chip Foose, who implemented what he thought Carroll Shelby would want to see as a modern day GT500.  It’s rumored that Bruckheimer, producer of the movie, wanted Eleanor to be black with gray stripes and that a painter mixed up the order, creating the gray with black stripe motif that became so famous.
