Eleanor.....just say the name and any car guy worth his salt knows what car you are referring to. The unicorn of the 2000 movie "Gone in 60 Seconds", Eleanor may have eluded capture on the big screen, but this 67' GT500 "Eleanor" is waiting here at Burnyzz for you! This GT500 started out as a vision for a track car "Eleanor" with all the right equipment to make it successful in SCCA road course races. With that in mind, a rust-free shell was obtained from Arizona and taken down to the bare metal as a blank canvas for a muscle car masterpiece. Under the hood went a full-fledged slightly detuned for pump gas NASCAR Cup Series 358CI small block Ford engine from NASCAR legend Roush Yates Racing. This monster motor puts out around 750hp and revs to 8,000rpm with ease.
Thanks to the open side pipes this mad Mustang even sounds just like a Cup Car, the noise is simply intoxicating, and you will do anything to get another hit of that exhaust note. All the thoroughbred horses are routed through a Richmond six speed manual transmission with hydraulic clutch and run back to a NASCAR spec Ford 9" rear axle. Now you can't have all this power without control, so the body has received extensive stiffening through boxed frame members, subframe connectors welded through the floorboards, and driveline braces to eliminate twisting and bending forces.
A fully fabricated front suspension with Penske race shocks combine with a four-link rear suspension with Panhard bar and adjustable coil over shocks to make this a compliant street car that is just as much at home on the racetrack. Brakes are race spec also with slotted, ventilated two-piece rotors all around with four piston front calipers and dual piston rear. In a concession to street-ability, this GT500 was fitted with power steering and even air conditioning! Inside this muscle car was lavished with leather covered high bolster bucket seats, Dakota digital instruments, center console with cup holders (better have a lid!), a real wood steering wheel, and premium Pioneer sound system. As a nod to safety, this Eleanor received a half cage and a racing spec fuel cell. In dedication to making this Eleanor as true as possible to the movie car, it was finished in a dark slate grey metallic with two black stripes and all the correct fiberglass bumpers, sides skirts, scoops, and lighting.
It a fair bet to say that this Eleanor would easily show its taillights to any of the movie cars in a straight line and would put laps on any muscle car around a road course. This GT500E has is all and then some more piled on top of that. Don't sit by and let this unicorn get away, contact Brian at 352-307-1968 and make some movie magic happen today!!
