Own a piece of cinematic history with this meticulously restored 1968 Ford Mustang Eleanor Tribute.

A breathtaking 1968 Ford Mustang Custom Fastback Eleanor Tribute is set to capture the hearts of car enthusiasts and movie fans alike. This official tribute to the "Gone in 60 Seconds" movie car comes with an Eleanor body VIN plate issued by Eleanor Licensing LLC, ensuring its authenticity and unique connection to the film.

This Mustang underwent a comprehensive rotisserie restoration, starting from a bare shell and reassembled with acute attention to detail. The restoration includes a wealth of photo documentation, showcasing the meticulous process of bringing this iconic car back to its former glory.


Under the hood lies a freshly built Ford FE 428 Big Block engine with Fast 2.0 fuel injection, paired with a 4-speed top-loader manual transmission featuring a Hurst shifter. While the Eleanor nitrous bottle is non-operational, it adds an authentic touch along with the "Go-Baby-Go" shifter and dash switch seen in the film. The car boasts electric exhaust dumps that allow for switching to open headers in seconds, perfect for enthusiasts who crave that raw, powerful sound.

The Mustang doesn't just perform well; it also looks the part, thanks to 4-wheel Wil-Wood power disc brakes with front brake line-locks for burn-outs, a completely new suspension system from front to back, and custom Eleanor-style wheels with Z-rated tires. The underside and chassis are flawlessly maintained, and the engine compartment is meticulously detailed and painted.

Additional luxury features include ice-cold air conditioning, sequential tail lights, power steering with a tilt column, LED lighting in the engine compartment, the interior, and ground effects, and a new stereo system equipped with Bluetooth.

As a special bonus, this vehicle comes with a 30-inch x 40-inch professionally assembled "Gone in 60 Seconds" framed presentation, featuring the official movie poster and officially signed photos of lead cast members Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie.

Showing only 828 miles on the odometer, this 1968 Ford Mustang Eleanor Tribute Edition not only offers an exceptional driving experience but also serves as a collectible piece of movie and automotive history. Don't miss the chance to own this spectacular vehicle and a piece of cinematic lore.
