‘Gone in 60 Second’ GT500 Eleanor replica sells at Barrett-Jackson for $110,000
Autographed by Carroll Shelby, this Eleanor replica is true to the movie ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’, down to the nuts and bolts. It was built by the much troubled Unique Performance which packed 585hp in the 427 Ford V8 engine. The rest of the car follows up with a lot of performance parts and a beautiful finish. It took $110,000 for a lucky bidder to get his hands on it a few days ago at the Barrett-Jackson auctions in Scottsdale, AZ.
And here’s a little sum up found on the auction page:
Summary: 1967 Carroll Shelby GT500E built by Unique Performance. Fully loaded with many options including upgrade to Keith Craft 585hp/427cid aluminum Fuel Injected V8, Tremec 5-speed and 3.89:1 9″ gears. Grey with black stripes.
