This 1968 Ford Mustang Eleanor Tribute Edition Is Headed To The Barrett-Jackson

1968 Ford Mustang Eleanor Tribute Edition is an officially licensed and certified Eleanor build with genuine Eleanor certification paperwork, Eleanor body VIN plate and emblems issued by Gone in 60 Seconds LLC. This 1968 Resto-Mod Mustang fastback coupe conversion received a complete rotisserie restoration and has only 350 test miles since completion. The body began with a clean and rust-free bare metal and was carefully reassembled. It has all the movie-correct Eleanor body modifications and accessories. This example was designed and created to be a perfect blend between the iconic Eleanor styling and an updated and modern driveline for improved performance built under the highest scrutiny. Underneath the distinctive Eleanor hood sits a second-generation 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine coupled to a TREMEC TKO 5-speed manual transmission and cooled by a Be Cool high-performance aluminum radiator.

The engine is fitted with an aggressive-sounding custom exhaust system that exits through the side rockers. It has an entire custom modern suspension and chassis, including independent coilover front suspension, tubular front subframe, front sway bar, tubular front and lower control arms, tubular upper tower reinforcement, subframe connectors, aluminum driveshaft, Wilwood disc brakes on all corners, drilled and slotted rotors, professionally fabricated Ford 9-inch rear end with 4-link rear suspension (all powder-coated), QA1 aluminum double adjustable coilovers front and rear, and rolls on beefy Eleanor-style American Racing wheels with high-performance tires. Professionally finished in Pepper Gray Metallic two-stage PPG exterior paint along with rich black rally body stripes and multiple layers of clear coat over the top. Show-ready LED lighting is featured in the interior cabin, engine compartment and chassis area. It comes with complete Eleanor certification and a 30×40-inch professionally assembled “Gone in 60 Seconds” framed official movie poster.
