About Shelby Mustang
In the Nicolas Cage film, "Gone in 60 Seconds," Eleanor is the elusive Shelby Mustang that seems to have a mind of its own as it evades police cars, outruns helicopters, and finally makes a heart-pounding leap off a bridge. In real life, the 1967 Shelby Mustang in the fastback style is one of the most popular of the classic muscle cars. Designed by Carol Shelby and fitted with a superior GT engine inside a lightweight Mustang body, this car quickly became the stuff of legend. In fact, it remained so popular that the Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500 eventually reappeared in a new design by Ford over 30 years after it first roared to life. Shelby himself lived long enough to see the iconic Mustang reborn in its new design, and buyers are able to find both the classic and new Shelby Mustang versions listed by reliable sellers on eBay. Whether you need parts for a rebuild project, or the car itself, the Mustang is truly a legend in its own right.
