  1. Eleanor – The 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang

    Leave a Comment


    Say what you will about Nicolas Cage, but the remake of Gone In 60 Seconds is definitely worth a watch. Especially considering the fact that it gave us one of the greatest and most recognizable movie cars in the history of cinema. Personified as “Eleanor”, the 1967 Shelby GT500 is forever cemented in our minds as one of the ultimate car chase vehicles. This beautiful Mustang is a custom-built, modified version of the GT500 that was specially created for the film. Eleanor’s aggressive look and roaring engine noise remind us that this is not a car to be messed with. We’ve got a couple videos here for Eleanor. Watch as DRIVE takes us on a ride with Eleanor and as Randall ‘Memphis’ Raines uses a flatbed as a ramp and does his best Evel Knievel impression on a bridge to evade the police. Cheers!

    In this wonderfully produced video segment by Petrolicious, we meet a true craftsman, fabricator, and artist named Steve Strope who has created what can only be described as one of the most unique Mustangs we’ve ever seen. The unyielding passion and attention to detail that has gone into every single component of this classic vehicle is what makes it truly special. Powered by a 1966 Ford/Lotus Indy Car motor, this one of a kind Mustang tips it’s hat to the early Mustangs that won their first races in European road rally stages.
