Gone In Sixty Seconds - Eleanore
In the beginning of the "Big Chase Scene" when Memphis starts up Eleanor for the first time the camera cuts to a shot of the whole car from the passenger side, as we hear the car roar to life for the first time blue exhaust smoke bellows out from under the back of the car. This is very interesting as the car has side exhaust pipes, and this is where we should see the exhaust come from. The side exhaust pipes are obviously just there for appearances.

The car (67 Mustang Fastback) was prepared by Cinema vehicles, and designed by Chip Foose. It is not a "real" Shelby, hence the differences. It was meant to be more flashy than a "real" Shelby. The side pipes are not, on any of the seven "elenores" funtional. Nor are the pillar mounted gas caps. for more on Elenore, who built it and how to build your own, check out, http://www.totalcontrolproducts.com/vehicles/60sec/index.html

unique performance out of texas builds replica eleanors. and they do have side exhaust pipes. however the builders of the movie eleanor were not able to figure this out because the frame was in the way.

ACTUALLY, it is a 67'. Although the almighty GT500 in the movie was really customized, if you look at the hood scoop on it, it's located in the middle. The hood scoop on a 68' is located in the front, right above the word SHELBY. Hope this helps

Guys & gals, come on! If anyone knows even slightly about cars, the 66-68 shelbys were ALL fastbacks (minus the convertibles) and yes, the middle lights were in the middle, but for 67 & 68, some of the lights had to be relocated to the outside by the regular lights due to certain state laws & their vehicle safety laws. Also, shelbs did not have side exhaust, although I know a few friends who have side exhaust pipes just to look mean, but actual exhaust flows to the back. I know I know, I've been rambling, but I just HAD to say something b/c i'm a huge mustang/shelby fan. I own a 67 coupe & shelby...

um ive went to the 40th annual mustang show in nashville and saw more than 3 shelbys not just gt 500s but also 350. and i know there plenty of cobras with 289 and 427s. it is true eleanor started life as a regular fast back and is not a true shelby. but theres lots of shelbys all over the country. go look at ebay if u dont beleive me. shelby has his own page.

The 67' Shelby GT 500 used in the movie was far from the original production model. The original Shelby didn't have exhaust side-pipes, or the sidevents shown in the movie. They did a few after-market adjustments to the car(s) for filming.

Actually, that car is not even a '67, it's a '68. The front end of a '67 has two fog lights just off center, and the Shelby Cobra logo just to the side of that... the '68 is almost identical, except it has the foglights at the bottom of the car (as did Elanor) and no Shelby Cobra on the front of the grille.

Eleanor is not even a 1967 GT Shelby. It is actually a Fast-back. There are only 3 Shelby's left in the United States. Sorry guys!!
