Even though most sane people would admit Nicholas Cage is a terrible actor, “Gone in 60 Seconds” remains one of the most entertaining car movies in history. And who can forget the beautiful gray 1967 Ford Mustang GT500 called “Eleanor”? To be honest, even if it wasn’t a “movie star”, I still think this car is absolutely amazing.

So I wasn’t really surprised when I found out that it was recently sold at an auction for quite a few bucks. As you can imagine, there was a lot of buzz around the sale and a bidding war was started, with the winner paying no less than 1 million dollars. A fair price for such a beauty, which was created by Cinema Vehicle Services and Chip Foose.

Under the bonnet, the car is powered by the 5.7-liter V8 that delivers around 400-hp and the lucky new owner will get a four-speed manual transmission, 17-inch wheels with high-performance Goodyear tires, lowered suspension and additional lights mounted in the front. So far, there were no details released about Eleanor’s new owner. The sale was part of the Dana Mecum 26th Original Spring Classic Auction that took place in Indianapolis and the car came with a certificate of authenticity and a special plaque with the car’s unique VIN.
