Nobody Wants the Eleanor Mustang from Gone in 60 Seconds, Fails to Auction

Oh well, it looks like no one had any love for the beautiful Eleanor Mustang that starred in the “Gone in 60 Seconds” flick as it failed to get auctioned in Austin, Texas, a few days ago. Last time it managed to change owners was in May 2013, when it got sold for $1 million (€811,185).

There were 11 units built by Cinema Vehicle Services of North Hollywood for the movie, with only a few of them actually being functional. Two of them got destroyed during the famous bridge jump and crusher scenes.

However, the one here is the only one that was used by Nicholas Cage as the primary car for closeups in the movie as well as posters and other promotional issues. And along with the main actor, Angelina Jolie and Giovanni Ribisi put their hands on it.

Built with some help from Chip Foose, the car comes with a redesigned fiberglass front end, PIA driving lights, new fender flares, side skirts and scoops, trunk and hood lids. Inside it comes with an Autometer Sport Comp tachometer, a fire extinguisher and a Go-Baby-Go shift knob button that works the Line Lock system for crazy burnouts. Oh, there’s also a nitrous injection system switch there.

Under the hood, there’s a Ford Racing 351 cui crate engine with Holley 700 CFM 4-barrel carburetors mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. As classic as it can get. Who the hell wouldn’t want this Hollywood legend in their private collection?
