AutoWeek: 1967 Eleanor Mustang movie car sells for $1 million
-Gone in 60 Seconds' prop hits seven figures
Look out Steve McQueen, Nick Cage's vehicles are set to be the new hot “thing” in automotive auctions. Well, maybe not, but the 1967 Eleanor Mustang (“Don't start with me … no, wait, start, start!”) from “Gone in 60 Seconds” sold at last weekend's Original Spring Classic Mecum Auction in Indianapolis for $1 million.
Only three of the movie's film's 11 Mustangs were working versions, and two were destroyed during shooting. This one was Randal "Memphis" Raines' hero car, used for close-ups near the end of the flick.
