General discription

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 PICTURES YOU SEE ARE SAMPLES AS THE CAR IS NOT YET COMPLETED !. 


The car is being built from a genuine Mustang S code (big-block from the factory ) Fastback !, so it's not a hacked up coupe with plastic 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 that's already done. But if you have no knowledge of these cars, buying one might be very tricky and difficult.

And seeing the car's huge popularity ( understandable because of 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 all custom build cars with.


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 turn key once you receive it. Its also important to have a car that looks as close to the actual cars that were used in the movie and this car were building will be just that. Another important isseu we feel is that sucha car must have some real performance and drive, brake and steer as good as possible. 


As there are MANY Eleanors on the market today that maybe have a nice paint job, but are otherwise just old mustangs with poor quality drivelines and body kits. 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 as long as its not completely done. You can't go wrong there as we have built and restored many, many cars over the last decades and have many happy and satisfied clients to back that up. This Eleanor is completely build up, restored and equipped with a fantastic drivetrain!


The car we offer you below here (Pictures are only samples) 


Will be built as a stage 2 car, which means its upgraded with many special performance parts and special handling and steering package and an upgraded interior. The base is a REAL fastback S coded Mustang, just like the Movie cars were ( so not just a old Mustang coupe or straight 6 car.) , and it has all the correct details and looks.


But this car comes with much more performance details and a performance drivetrain as were the movie cars all had more or less standard engines and equipment. It's going to be equipped with 4 wheel disc brakes, special suspension and steering package and a complete as new driveline with very powerful Edelbrock 475hp V8 fuel injected engine and a High-performance transmission with overdrive, a front to back new exhaust system with super sound and lots more. ALL this is included in the sales price, so unexpected additional costs!.


The paint of the car is fresh and in great condition and the car itself is completely rust free and solid. The interior will receive all new parts and the dash will see all new gauges and electrics installed. All in all this car will be a completely new (re)build. The estimated price when done ( all new engine and driveline and all costs as stated included ! )  will be around 119500,- Euro, but can change up or down depending on your additional personal requirements or additions. But for this price, you will get A TURN KEY QUALITY BUILT ELEANOR GT500E ! with loads of special options and special details.


You won't FIND A BETTER AL NEW CUSTOM BUILD TESTED & TUNED TURN KEY ELEANOR FOR LESS!. With prices for USED high-quality true Eleanor Fastbacks getting higher and higher, THIS car is an all-new build car for a very attractive price indeed. 


Please contact our sales if your interested one way or the other, as the car might already be far into the build process, which means making changes to the build might no longer be possible or very expensive to change afterward's. It's going to be for sale completely tested and inspected and turnkey.  We estimate the car will be ready and in our showroom around September 2018. However, it might easily be sold way before it ever hits the showroom floor, so don't wait to long to contact us as long as its still for sale.. We can only sell it once.

  • Guide: Matching numbers

    In the collector car hobby, most investment-minded buyers are acutely interested in a specific car’s history. One of the main aspects of that history is an original or, as most people state it, numbers-matching drivetrain. At pedaltothemetal muscecars we feature a plethora of original and numbers-matching classics including ‘Cudas, Road Runners, Chevelles, Camaros, Corvettes and Trans Ams. And, if a potential buyer knows how to properly identify and interpret certain manufacturing codes, they can further validate their car’s history, or on request we can provide it.

  • Vehicle claims and descriptions

    Vehicle/product descriptions, representations and claims on or offline are based on what can be seen by the human eye, documentation, previous professional experience, opinion, factory claims, and, or, information passed on to us by previous owners or restorers. It's to the best of our knowledge that everything we advertise has all indications of being that claim. Please inquire as to what documentation we have on the vehicle you are purchasing or feel free to ask any additional questions you might have, But by no means you can accept our answers as facts as the are our interpretation and might not match yours. It is with integrity and honesty that we describe our cars, but they are in fact, up to 50 years old, may have had many previous owners, modifications or alterations that are unknown to the us, so it's not possible to verify everything about every car in detail. Thereby the stated conditions or details of a car can never ever be taken as a fact. As always we welcome personal inspections and or independent appraisers prior to a sale. Incase we speak of "Original" or "Matching numbers" it means that we asume that to be the case, but with old classic cars thats by no means a guarantee. So please feel free to verify that in person or with a third party.

    Pttm goes a step further than almost every other seller(s), as we also do a full inspection of our vehicles prior to having them for sale in our showroom and make repairs improvements if needed so. And when a vehicle/product is sold we give it a full service check before you receive it !
