We recently stumbled upon over this 1967 Ford Mustang Eleanor GT500 and we really love the way it looks! So, showing this “Go, Baby, Go” ground-pounding machine on Muscle Cars World is just because we want to share the work of Normcar with you.
The copy, which came to the guys over Normcar was in a moribund stage, became the basis for the creation of a copy of the notorious Eleanor from the movie Gone in 60 seconds. The entire body has been sandblasted and restored by removing any corrosion and rust outbreak, there were also additional reinforcement and processing for the modification. The engine compartment has been prepared for the new motor. The entire body along with a flap and a mask body-kit components accurately mapping the car from the movie. Along with other mods, Normcar also installed ABS in order to improve the safety brake. Read more!
The engine is a 351W Windsor 5.8 L Small Block Ford, rated at about 400 hp, generating 600 Nm of torque, mated to a manual gearbox 5-speed T-5. Some of the mods are Keith Black pistons with higher compression, Eagle forged rods, Patriot Performance aluminum heads, CompCams camshaft and Lower intake manifold Edelbrock Performer RPM. The upper intake manifold is Normcar, the carburetor is a DoublePumper 650CFM QuickFuel.
Under the hood you can also find K&N Air filters, Mallory ignition device, MSD ignition wires, coupling clamp RAM, Normcar cooler, Holley electric fuel pump and Hedman Hedders exhaust manifolds. Look behind and you can see Normcar exhaust with Magnaflow mufflers.
The suspension features …. the suspension of the Nissan 350Z – QA1 shocks and springs, front strut Normcar. Indeed, the biggest changes were made with the suspension because instead of the original, it has been replaced with the Nissan 350Z system to improve handling and braking. The rims are Hildebrand alloy wheels 8×17 with 235/45/17 front tires R1r and 275/40/17 rear tires R1r. This amazing ride also comes with hydraulic handbrake K-sport and lower strut Normcar.
What about the exterior and interior? Well, the GT500 Eleanor bodykit corresponding to that of the movie is the first thing you notice. But there’s more to come – Flaming River steering column, Grant steering wheel Nostalgia, lanes 4 pts OMP 4M, emblems and stickers in accordance with the film “Gone in 60 Seconds”, jack shift knob “GO BABY GO” with a button for the nitro (not yet installed), power windows and amazing Alpine audio system.
