1967 Ford Mustang Fastback “Eleanor”
Original purpose built 67 Ford Mustang for the movie “Gone in 60 Seconds” 11 “On Camera” vehicles were built by Cinema Vehicle Services for the movie, 4 of those vehicles were completely destroyed during filming. 3 of the remaining 7 were sold to private parties. 2 are owned by the builder in their personal collection, one restored and one as it was at filming end. The remaining 2 are still owned by Cinema Vehicle Services with the intent to restore and keep for their archives. This vehicle is #9 (Designated by the order Cinema Vehicles acquired them) This unit was in the industry what’s known as a “Hero” car in this case meaning “it was used primarily as a vehicle the actor drove and performed in” as a side note Nicholas Cage did almost all of his driving in the film. He did not use stunt drivers for 95% of the shots. This vehicle was sold to a close friend of the owner of Cinema Vehicle Services 6 months after the movie was completed and that owner kept it in his personal collection until last year when he sold it back to Cinema Vehicle Services for personal reasons.
