A 1967 Mustang model car “Eleanor” that became famous after appearing in the movie “60 Seconds”, sharing the scene with actor Nicolas Cage, is being offered for sale.

The Story Line : Gone in 60 Seconds

A car thief is forced to steal 50 luxury vehicles in one night in order to save the life of his brother, who has fallen foul of a dangerous crime lord. Once the most successful car thief in California, he must reassemble his old gang to fulfil the almost impossible mission. His task is further hampered by a rival band of thieves and, of course, the local police.

The Mustang ends up becoming one of the cars that need to be stolen in this mission that seems to be impossible, in a film that also features the presence of actress Angelina Jolie. This was one of the cars the actor actually drove during the shoot, with Nicolas driving only three of the 11 real cars that were shot.

According to the information that was released about the car by the seller, this Mustang model was exported from the United States to Europe and was based on the most common model of the 1967/1968 Ford Mustang. But the three cars that were used in the shoot received some extras, such as a reinforced suspension, improvements to the rear axle, new suspension arms and a 6.4 L V8 engine.

The vast majority of the cars that were used in the recording of this film ended up being destroyed, including the single vehicle that had the same engine and ended up being used in the scenes in which it was indispensable to drive the car.

So far, the final sale price of the car has not yet been released, but everything indicates that it is above R $ 4.5 million. The price is being stipulated based on the sale of another car that took part in the filming of the same film in January this year, which ended up being sold for the same price.
