1974 “Gone in 60 Seconds”/ 1973 Ford Mustang Mach I

A 1973 Ford Mustang Mach I (indeed 1971 Mustang restyled as 1973) as known as Eleanor was a star of the 1974 original “Gone in 60 Seconds” movie by H.B. “Toby” Halicki.

“Eleanor” is the only Ford Mustang in history to receive star title credit in a movie. The Eleanor name is reused for a Shelby Mustang GT500 in the 2000 “Gone in 60 Seconds” remake.

Despite rumors that car was painted in Ford’s Medium Yellow Gold, Halicki – in a 1974 interview – stated that the cars were painted “generic school bus yellow” to save money.
