The 1967 Ford Mustang GT500 known as Eleanor that starred in the film Gone in 60 Seconds will be offered at Mecum Auctions' 26th Original Spring Classic Auction on May 14-19 in Indianapolis.
The car has achieved legendary status since it featured in the hit 2000 remake, in which Nicholas Cage's character is forced to steal 50 cars in one night to save his brother's life. Eleanor, the pinnacle of this crime spree, has since spawned a wave of recreations, but the example at auction is the real deal.
Eleven vintage Mustangs were customised for the 2000 film, though only three were actually drivable. This is the only one of the three remaining and is undoubtedly the most important, as it was driven by Cage himself and featured in all movie poster and promotional efforts for the film.
The auction will also offer a unique example of the 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake, which is expected to see the top bids of the sale.
