The $2 Million Mustang Eleanor!

The $2 Million Mustang Eleanor!

whoa whoa stop God Supercup on the year and I am in a super special car
you may have already recognized it if you’ve seen the movie Gone in sixty
Seconds this is one of the cars that Nicolas Cage drove in the movie


[Applause] [Music]
so for the movie they built eleven of these cars for all of the shots but only
three were used for the driving scenes these are so-called hero cars so they’re
fully functioning cars and that’s one of those three all of the other ones were
not fully built cars some of them like were just built for interior shots for
example and I’m here in East Germany who would have thought chrome cars has this
car some of you are watching this and going no way I’m gonna pick it to pieces
this is a copy because this is one of the most copied movie cars in the world
but I’m going to get the expert in in just a second to point out some of the


features that shows that this is actually one of the three originals this
is kind of one of the only things that shows you that it was a car from the
movies look at these air vents here they’re

closed off a fake so they just tacked on body kits to make the car look really
cool the exhaust tips in the movie were for show only they did not work the


exhaust actually came from out the back after the movie finished they wanted to
sell these cars so they had to make them actually function properly it went back
to cinema vehicle services they’re the guys that actually make cars for movies
and they retrofitted a whole new exhaust system that functions so that they could
sell this these cars onto the public so on all three original movie cars you’ll
now see these new exhaust tips there’s also nitrous which we’re going


to have a look at now some of the movie Cars you could see the nitrous right
behind where they were sitting in this car it’s actually in a boot you just
pull on this little latch here – there it is the tank that’s cool let’s
get it in because I know you guys want to see the interior of the car slam that
this is actually functioning here that works to fill up you never know what’s
real what’s fake on blue because this wheel is special guys take a look at
this this is an original wheel built for Shelby I think it’s time to bring in the
expert who is standing by Chris this is crus everyone from chrome cars they’re
the guys that own this car and you’re pretty much an Illinois expert right


yeah that’s good yeah no it is quite appropriate he’s like yeah and then this
feature over here and then that feature I’m like okay calm down calm down we’ll
go through all the features okay where do you want to start because I know that
it’s super important to you to show certain features that make this like a
hundred percent fully undoubtable that these are young original from the movie
you pointed let’s start with the hood most of the replicas have like a copy of
the of that very custom front end yeah but the very main point to point that
it’s an original car is the hood actually they’re good the shape of the
hood and the shape of the scoop whenever you see a replica they’re like very edgy
very straight like that and it looks actually cheap and the reason for this


is that they used an original Shelby hood and they reshaped it a little bit
so that’s very unique and trademarked it actually cuz the original Shelby hood

was actually open here right right so in order to close it off to look like this
movie cart they actually just had to create this piece
and it ended up looking just really square so it just came down here and
then booms yeah looks more smooth than that yeah yeah so there are lots of
different bits and pieces on this car to tell
whether it’s an original but if you want to get super super nerdy let’s go have a
look at what’s under the hood got it
okay now in the movie guys you don’t actually get to see under the hood so
for those of you have seen the movie like well this isn’t tell me anything no
not only for the freaks and geeks over here they look under the hood and this
is like the stamp you need yeah you really need to know what kind of like
suspension parts they used for the for the hero cars what engines what
transmission and and stuff like that so you have to have the total control
products suspension parts the VIN number we need to just point out yeah that’s
that’s right here for the super nerds the super super nerds what’s not nerdy
though is driving this car yeah it’s just pure awesome
[Music] now you need to keep your foot on the
gas a little bit otherwise it will just come out there’s a bit of an issue with
the seat belt why I’m not wearing one
not as skinny as Nicholas Cage
so we’re just gonna try and reverse
what are into reverse
[Music] good ok off we go
never thought I think I would be driving nearly done

you can actually arm the nitrous in this car you can hook it up they just haven’t
hooked it up yet that’s the next time they come back the nitrous will be
hooked up right chrome cars you got me
this one actually I wanted to ask you because we know that one of these cars
was sold for a million dollars in 2013 we’re now 2019 how much do you think you
could get for this I mean it’s six years ago and the value
just keeps rising so we’re not afraid to say it’s double the price
it’s a two million probably yeah and that’s actually an unrestored car
yeah well the others are some touch-ups here some new paint job here and change
parts so that’s as it was in the movie so you’ve done nothing
no no just keeping a good life right yeah yeah yeah driving while here and
sparkplugs yeah what do you have to do to make it work she’s an old girl she’s
an old girl she’s temperamental she says yes when she wants to be driven you can
drive her when she wants her days off yep just leave leaving off don’t touch
