By January 9, 2012

Follow me on:

Remember the 2000 remake of the classic movie "Gone in 60 Seconds"? Nick Cage's character, Memphis Raines, steals a sharp looking classic Mustang named "Eleanor." Well, the car will be crossing the block at the upcoming Autosport International show in Birmingham on Saturday January 14th. International auctioneer, Coys of Kensington, will auction the car (Lot#241) featured in the movie.

The 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang was designed by Hot Rod Illustrator Steve Stanford, and built by car customizers Chip Foose and the late Boyd Coddington. According to reports, a total of 12 "Eleanors" were built for the film. Five were designated as stunt cars. This car, a "hero" version, is one of the few remaining "Eleanors" left from the movie.

You can learn more about the car, and the auction, here.
