The notorious car-junkie movie of this generation, “Gone in Sixty-Seconds,” features Nicholas Cage's character, Memphis Raines, chasing after a long list of exotic and rare cars. The most memorable and lovable car on that list (in my opinion) is the 1967 Mustang Fastback known as “Eleanor.” The featured Mustang exemplifies how a classic 1967 Fastback should look and feel once restored. “Eleanor” should be the goal that every classic Mustang owner aims for in reproducing a car with soul.

According to Autoblog, Classic Recreations in Yukon, Oklahoma will transform your 1967 Mustang Fastback into “Eleanor” from “Gone in Sixty-Seconds.”

The base model reproduction starts at $109,000 (you produce the Mustang). Once the check clears, Classic Recreations places a 401 cubic inch racing engine with aluminum heads in your engine bay. An aluminum cross flow radiator, two 12" cooling fans, a Mass Flo fuel injector system, Concept One serpentine belt drive system, and ceramic coated headers are also used in the transformation. This helps produce the base version's 535 horsepower. You can have it updgraded to their 770 horsepower version for an additional $80,000.

The complete transformation of the Mustang includes a full suspension system, brakes, wheels, several exterior body pieces and panels, a new front end, exhaust system, and several other variables that turn the '67 Mustang into the car featured in “Gone in Sixty-Seconds.”

Finally, the feature that really embodies the movie-inspired Mustang is the red “Go Baby Go” button placed on the shift-knob. The button is set up to trigger the nitrous-oxide system and the “Armed” toggle in the dash. Classic Recreations' detailed transformation will put the buyer in the same seat that Memphis Raines made famous.
