A screen-used 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500 from the film Gone in 60 Seconds 2000 has come up for sale in, of all places Germany, via a classic car dealership called Chrome Cars .

This one is number three of 11 such Mustangs built for the 2000 movie, which starred Nic Cage as a car thief who must collect 50 exotic rides for a buyer.

The “Eleanor” for sale is also one of the three ‘hero’ cars, used for closeups with the actors and not smashed up during the car chase.

This carbon-fibre-bodied 1967 Mustang ‘Eleanor’ is just US0,000

It wasn’t just made to look pretty on camera, though; the vehicle is fully functioning, with a 400-horsepower 351 small-block V8, a four-speed transmission, and a finish in the classic Pepper Grey with black stripes.

Of the eleven built for the movie, only three cars survived — all others were presumably ruined for the stunt driving scenes.

For what the movie portrays as a “one-off” special that can only be tamed by one person, it seems a whole tonne of these Eleanor Mustangs have come up for sale recently, not to mention . Another of the surviving hero cars sold January 2020 via auction house Mecum for US$852,500, down from US$1 million the last time it’d traded hands.

That might just be the biggest drawback to owning such a thing — having it look just like a replica, and being tasked with the added chore of having to tell people it was actually in the movie. Curiously, the website doesn’t list an asking price. Maybe you’ll just have to steal it and jump it over a bridge to get it.
