One of the most famous of all old-school Mustangs is up for sale - "Eleanor," the star of the 2000 movie remake "Gone in Sixty Seconds." (Sure, there were people in the movie, but Eleanor was the real star.)

Actually a replica of its '67 Shelby GT500 namesake, the movie car is up for sale at The Auto Collections at the Imperial Palace Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The car is one of 12 built for the movie, two of which were destroyed during filming.

Eleanor is powered by a Ford Racing 351 crate engine, and looks to be very well equipped. More details and pics at the Auto Collections site here.

      Its so funny to read all the comments about how people dont like this car when in all actuallity Im willing to bet you would be the first bandwagons faggots to run up to it an drool over one if you had the chance. Oh and as for the idiot that loved the origional gone in 60 seconds the first one was especially dumb the second I will agree was poorly done but it atleast had nice cars and if you seriously think a 73 looks better than the 67-68 you are on serious crack.....That is all

      Since no one else has done it so far, I find it worthwhile to point out that Unique Performance (www.uniqueperformance.com) produces these for anyone who can afford them. In fact, in addition to two performance levels of the basic Eleanor design, they also offer a 725-HP "Super Snake" with slight cosmetic differences, and a convertible Eleanor version. (Click on "Shelby Cars" on the top bar, move to "G.T.500E" and pick the version you'd like to see.)

      Of course, these aren't exactly cheap either. But, unless you are really after the direct movie association of the auctioned car, these still place a virtual upper limit on its rational value. And these certainly detract from the ultimate uniqueness of the car in general.

      And, no, I'm not affiliated with Unique Performance.

        It's a good thing that you're not affiliated with Unique Performance, because it's having problems with the law. The police department in Farmers Branch, Texas, where the company was located, raided its facility because they suspected the company was involved in illicit activity, including title-washing.

        Also, customers have complained that Unique Performance took their money but provided no product to them.

        I'd post a link to a story about this, but I didn't want to violate any rules.

      Very nice car that'll go for a very nice price. Oh, and a car outrunning a helicopter shouldn't be that suprising. Helicopters aren't that fast and any late 90's Z28 would make short work of your average traffic or news chopper.

      I'll give 5 cents for it.
      The Eleanor has to be THE ugliest p.o.s on the planet, and total CHEEZE.
      I can't believe people pay 100's of thousands for a 20 thousand dollar mustang just because it has cheap fiberglass and junky trinkets added to an otherwise plain mustang.
      Just goes to show that rich nerds control the automotive buyers market right now, not REAL car guys. REAL car guys would build their own mustang with less trash and better performance for 1/4 the price.
      The Eleanor phenomenon opitimizes the late nineties early 2000's foolish priced specialty car market.
      The only saving grace is that some of these fools will lose alot of cash when the market stabilizes once the muscle cars for geeks phase passes.
      The ONLY extra value in any eleanor for the ones used in the movie is for MOVIE prop collectors, not car collectors,
      and the destroyed ones are actually better looking.

      Eleanor is one of, if not the, most recognized name in the classic muscle car restoration / tuning world, thanks in large part to the movie in question.

      It will fetch a hefty price (ie. more than 50 large).

      One of twelve the original twelve made and one of ten that still exists? That's great if your a Ferrari Daytona or Dino, but a reworked '67 Mustang whose biggest claim to fame is having Angelina Jolie's butt rubbed all over your seats? No pedigree here. I say $50K tops!

        Denice Halicki has killed the Eleanor Mustang. Denice Halickiclaimed a copy of a Shelbys design from Chip Foose and then sued Shelby and claimed it as her own and now she is actually signing Eleanor Mustang cars.
        Denice hides behind God to sue innocent people and claim she is a victim. SCAM SCAM SCAM. She is one of the biggest cons and crooks in the market today. A signed Eleanor from her is worthless today and the laughing stock of the Mustang industry.
        Thanks a lot! Denice, for taking something so precious away from true Mustang lovers. You single handedly killed the Eleanor. Denice Halicki, you are an embarrassment for women who truly want to start a honest business

      You guys who like the original Haliki Gone in 60 Secs...what exactly were you on when you saw that movie? I dont think anyones claiming that the remake is Citizen Kane, but come on. That movies only saving grace is having one of the best car chases in cinema. But given that the movie was almost 1/2 car chase, even thats not saying much.

      I like B movies and praise it on that level. But lets be realistic...thats all it is.

      Never until I saw this car in "Gone" had I actually been sexually excited by a vehicle? I'm in lust!

      There are a lot of original Mustangs around so I guess it doesn`t matter. But I hate seeing old classic cars get chopped up and hot rodded.

      They don`t build them anymore so don`t rip the soul out of the car.

      The Mustang you see here is a 2000 not a 1967.
      Might as well be a kit car.
      Old cars worthy of this should be restored to original specs then you really have something.

      i would pay about 250000 for the elanor in the 2000 movie and about 2.50 for the one in the orignal

      I know someone who has the real 67 GT 500. This car is a joke. The person I know was happy they called the car a 67. Usually the 68 Shelby 500 gets more attention. The 67 looks better in my opinion
