Gone In Sixty Seconds - Eleanor's Instrument Panel
Eleanor's speedometer is incorrect. A Shelby Cobra GT 500's speedometer goes up to 160, not 120. Not very critical, but annoying just the same...

Have you ever heard the word aftermarket, or custom. If you look at the car (GT500) which never was REAL GT500, you will notice that it already looks a hell of a lot better than any other GT500's you see. The stupid gauge cluster can be changed, as can the exhaust, lights, grill, etc. The only thing that I can really say was a slip up about the car was that if the owner was going to spend THAT much time and money to fix a Shellby Mustang like that, you would think he would park it in a little more secure place and/or spent some of that money on a decent security system or anti-theft device.

To tell you all the truth, there were 12 cars used as "Eleanor" and not one of them was and actual 1967 Shelby Cobra G.T. 500. They were all 1967 Fastback Mustangs and they defiantly were not original. And even the sound they used for the car was from a 428 Cobra-Jet Big Block from a different car. So the whole car was kinda fake. For more info. go to:

My dad owns a Shelby GT500 of the same year. I will tell you that the speedometer does say 160mph. Trust me there are a lot of other things about the one in the movie that make it completely different than a real Shelby. For some examples off the top of my head... the grill, front lights, ride height and molded scoops to name a few. I hope this helps.

The speedometer in the movie is the original mustang speedometer. I have the exact same gauge in my 67 coupe..

Never-the-less, the speedometer in a SHELBY goes up to 160. The standard mustang, coupe, fast-back, whatever only goes up to 120... Trust me on this. Lag'

Can we have some genuine facts please. Do we agree that the car used was a 1967 fastback mustang made to look like a modified gt500? Was the front of the car from 1965 or 1968 gt500? I have read conflicting reports. Any actual facts would be appreciated. Tar very much. I'm from the UK.
