Gateway Classic Cars Louisville showroom is proud to present this 1968 Ford Mustang "Eleanor" Tribute. So, we all know the real star of the last Gone in Seconds movie was the car. This Mustang pays tribute to the movie, the car and is an excellent performer. Starting out as a father and son project, the original plan was to build nice solid 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback. The original painter was taking longer than expected, the car was retrieved and new plan was implemented. This Mustang has more than just an Eleanor body kit. Under the gray metallic skin is a full 2x3 inch tube frame giving this Mustang a more rigid platform which allows it, whether it be on a road course or a dragstrip, at a higher level of performance. This Eleanor rides on a full coil over suspension and has disc brakes at all four corners. Under the hood, things get real serious with a professionally built 351W engine. Utilizing a Comp Cams Thumper cam and a set of AFR aluminum heads, the 351W is up to task of making this car go. The 351W is mated to a World Class T-5 manual transmission that sends the power to a rock-solid Ford 9-inch rear end. Inside the interior is all business with a set of Recaro racing seats to keep you firmly planted when making performance moves. Keeping the car enjoyable while driving is an AM/FM radio with a CD player. Not will you look cool driving this beauty but you will stay cool with the "Old Rellick" AC/Heating system that was installed. I bet Nic Cage wished his movie car would had that! Options for this 1968 Ford Mustang Eleanor tribute include; Air Conditioning, AM/FM radio with CD player, Power steering, Seat Belts, Disc Brakes, Aluminum Alloy Wheels wrapped in Radial Tires.
