For sale ! Custom build Eleanor by PTTM !
1968 ELEANOR GT500 E FASTBACK ! for sale soon, that we are currently building! and where you can see and track its completion or even ad or change details as long as were in progress with the build !. HOW GREAT IS THAT !. You can Own this amazing new build Eleanor and also have the ability to get it with your personal touch, for a very interesting price.
The car is being build from a A genuine Mustang S code (big-block from the factory ) Fastback !, so it's not a hacked up coupe wiplastictic roof or an old six cylinder low-performance base car. The car was an existing Eleanor that we are completely rebuilding and upgrading at this moment. Part of the plans are, to install a 475/500HP Custom build V8- 351engine with Edelbrock fuel injection ( very reliable ! ) and an overdrive automatic transmission in the car which we already have in stock, but on request, we can also upgrade it with any other engine and transmission combination you like as long as the car is in progress. Everything on the car will be as new and in great condition. It's practically a brand new build car, and BETTER than the movie cars for sure.
With 11 Actual Eleanor's built for the famous Movie GONE in 60 seconds with actor Nicolas Cage behind the steering wheel. All the cars that were built were different from each other and used for special stages in the movie.. Cars built for jumps and others for the driving action, a show car for the up close shots and a couple fore promotional goals and for pictures. All were built from base standard Mustang fastback's and NOT as many people think or want to believe from the car where it was based on, the 67 Shelby's GT500. All cars that were built for the movie were small block cars, opposed to the real Shelby's GT500 cars that all were 390/428 big block engined cars. Some of the movie car's had a manual 4-speed trans and some even had automatic transmissions. The engines used in these cars were either the base 289 cui, the base 302 cui and some used the larger 351cui Ford engines. But today many Eleanor tributes are or can also be built with the Shelby GT500 drivetrain or even Big block Ford performance engines. We can build these cars with up to 1000hp !
So an Eleanor is NOT a transformed real Shelby GT500 or any other type of special or unique car brand, but a car based/cloned on a fantasy close to the shapes and forms of the actual GT500 and it was designed by the folks writing and making the movie!. The even copied the name from the Shelby, the GT500, but an E was added (E for Eleanor) so you could tell the difference. All cars are base ford mustang Fastback's, with body kits added to make them look more aggressive and in style with the famous true 67/68 Shelby Mustang's.. and not the other way around. But besides that, an Eleanor looks fantastic, that's for sure and its a highly desirable car to own, drive and enjoy, there is nothing to argue about that. The guy's who designed the car for the movie were spot on!
NON of the movie cars were built with functional NOS nitro systems, but most car's had the bottle and the actuator switch in the car there for the looks but none of them had a fully functional system. The suspension systems were mostly stock style Mustang suspensions with rear leaf springs and manual or power steering boxes. Only a couple of car's that were built and actually driven had some better, more performance orientated type of suspension upgrades, but nothing really special as you see now on some of the Eleanor tributes that were built after the movie cars. However all of the cars in the movie were painted in the popular pepper gray metallic color and all had the black Shelby style stripes, and of course the Eleanor style body kit and front and rear end.
So all in all EVERY Eleanor that was build for use in or on the movie set was different, so building a tribute to these cars is more or less a freehand of taste, budget, and style as none of them were the same. This is the reason why you see so many different Eleanor's today as everybody gives there own swing or style and detail to these cars. With the actual real-deal movie car's being priced for well over a million dollars or more, and almost never seen for sale on the market, owning an Eleanor for most of us is a matter of building one or have one build for you, or to buy one one of the tribute cars that are ready to drive. And seeing the car's huge popularity ( understandable seeing its fantastic appearance ), many cars that were built as tribute cars have there own details and upgrades and that's all ok seeing none of them are used in the movie anyway so why not build it or find one you like ?, there is NOT 1 Eleanor the same in the whole world !, their custom build cars.
Whats important for you is that you want to be sure to buy an Eleanor that's built properly and with quality in mind and is tested and tuned professionally and is turn key once you receive it. And the best way to get that is to give us a call or come by the shop and we will inform you about the possibilities and options available.
