A Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 “Eleanor” used on the shooting of the movie “60 Seconds Chrono” is for sale.
Released in 2000, the film “60 Seconds Chrono” propelled the 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, nicknamed Eleanor by Randall, the main character of the feature film camped by Nicolas Cage, into the Hall of Fame of movie cars. Quality replicas are sometimes traded for hundreds of thousands of dollars. One of the original cars used on the set has just been put on sale in Germany.
The company Cinema Vehicle Services builds and supplies vehicles for the cinema. It had made eleven Eleanor cars for Dominic Sena’s film, three of which were carefully finished to appear in close-ups which are the only ones still in existence. It is one of them, the number 7 of the fleet, which is offered by ChromeCars.
A recognizable Mustang
This 1967 Mustang Fastback is therefore adorned with the dark grey livery with black stripes, additional lights, body kit, wheels and all of Eleanor’s signature cosmetic treatment, as well as its 400hp 4.8L V8 combined with a four-speed manual transmission. The coupe has just over 117,000 kilometers on the odometer.
The asking price has not been released. It could be seven figures, with another original Eleanor having been auctioned off for $1 million (approximately €850,000) in 2013.
