LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1968 Ford Mustang Eleanor
One of the most famous of all Mustangs is known as 'Eleanor', the Shelby GT500 that starred in the 1974 B-film 'Gone in Sixty Seconds', which was remade in 2000 with Nicholas Cage. The movie also made the name Eleanor synonymous with every '67 Shelby GT500. You can't see one today without immediately identifying it with the movie. It also made these silver '67 beasts some of the most sought-after rides of all time. When you look at one up close like this Eleanor, it's very easy to see why so many car enthusiasts have this year and model down as their favorite of all time.
Most muscle car enthusiasts can agree that Carroll Shelby introduced some of the coolest and most aggressive Mustangs ever created. To create the new Eleanor, they drew inspiration from his designs in order to create the greatest modern interpretation. This Eleanor has been finished in Raven Black with a Red center and GT500E tape stripe. The Interior has been redone with factory style black carpet, door panels, headliner and the addition of some modern Scat Pro Rally seats with Carroll Shelby’s signature embroidered in the headrests. To finish off the interior is a Shelby steering wheel and unique Shelby Autometer gauges. Additional exterior details include chrome door handles, functional flip up fuel filler, and fender mounted “Shelby GT500” emblems.
Lift the unique fiberglass hood on this beautiful machine and you'll find the powerful small block Ford Engine backed by a 5-speed manual transmission. At the top of the engine you'll find period correct Cobra air filter resting on a 750cfm 4-barrel Holley carburetor. The spark reaches the cylinder thanks to the MSD ignition and MSD distributor. From there the spent gasses travel through Hooker ceramic coated headers then enter into a Magnaflow side exhaust. To stop the added power, the braking system has been upgraded with four-wheel disk brakes. The suspension boasts Total Control Products Front Suspension with TCP power rack and pinion steering. To finish out the performance package are a set of 17-inch Halibrand wheels and modern radial tires. The resulting handling experience ensures that this Mustang can corner effectively at speed.
The Ford Mustang Eleanor is by far one of the greatest looking Mustangs around. Combine that with an upgraded drivetrain and suspension to create an ultimate muscle car. If you're looking for an instantly recognizable classic that is an absolute blast to drive, we have the car for you.
