The Mustang Source
If you’re Mustang fan, you were probably bummed that you didn’t have a million dollars lying around when an original 1967 Ford Mustang “Eleanor” from “Gone in 60 Seconds” was sold for that amount at a Mecum Auction earlier this year.
No worries, if you can manage to get to the Chicago area this Saturday and now have a little more money to play with you might get a second shot at picking one up.
Another ’67 Mustang “Eleanor” that starred in the 2000 action film will be up for grabs at the Mecum Auction being held Oct. 10 – 12, at the Schaumburg Convention Center in Schaumburg, Illinois.
The Mustang “Eleanor” is powered by a 351 Ford V8 crate engine with 400 horsepower and one of eleven used in the film, according to a GTSpirit report.
However, of the eleven cars, the one scheduled for the blocks this weekend is one of just three that were actually used with actors, which makes it much more suitable as a collector.
