one of the most recognizable movie cars of all time. With the body lines of
a shark, the stage presence of a movie star and the perceived performance
of an olympic athlete, it's no wonder die-hard enthusiasts fell in love

From its professionally built 428 Cobra Jet V8 to its pristine Shelby
interior and actual Cinema Vehicle Services body kit, this 1967 Eleanor GT
is the ultimate dream car for any Ford fanatic, major movie buff or
hardcore gear head!
The build of this highly accurate Eleanor began with a trip to Cinema
Vehicle Services, the same company that produced all the exterior pieces
for the actual movie cars, where the owner purchased one of their complete,
limited edition body kits. Once that kit was secured, Johnnie Cate Hotrod
and Custom in Alcoa, Tennessee began a frame-off rotisserie reconstruction
which stripped the car down to bare metal, completely restored its panels
and covered its body in a smooth coat of Dupont 44490 Pepper Gray Metallic
and Dupont 44435 Black Metallic.
Pull the hood pins on this sinister Mustang and you'll find a lethal 428
cubic inch Cobra Jet V8 which has been bored .030 over and professionally
rebuilt by Dwight Powell of High Performance Ford Engines in Dahlonega,
Georgia. At the top of the jet black block, a coated Holley 4-barrel
carburetor mixes fuel from fresh stainless fuel lines with air from a
finned "Cobra" branded air cleaner and sends it into a correct 428 Cobra
Jet intake manifold. At the sides of that black intake manifold, correct
Cobra Jet heads, which were subjected to a performance valve job and
equipped with hardened valve seats, are wedged between correct "Cobra"
branded valve covers and tough TRW pistons that are wrapped in high quality
Moly rings. At the front of that black intake manifold, a billet
distributor sends spark from a Painless Wiring harness to fresh black plug
wires which fire in sequence with a balanced rotating assembly that
includes Clevite bearings, a Cloyes double roller timing set, a Crane
hydraulic camshaft and hardened push rods. Cooling is provided by a Griffin
aluminum radiator which is equipped with a front mount transmission cooler,
two electric fans, correct FoMoCo hoses and a billet overflow tank; and
lubrication is provided by a Melling high volume oil pump.
Behind the rowdy Ford motor you'll find a fresh C6 3-speed automatic
transmission, which was bolted in by Jonnie Cate Hotrod and Custom, in
front of a professionally built driveline that was tweaked and finished by
Street Rods by Michael in Shelbyville, Tennessee. Most of the actual movie
cars were equipped with automatic transmissions, despite the chase sequence
displaying a 4-speed car, and this Eleanor's stout C6 does a fine job of
turning the engine to break neck speeds. However, RK Motors Charlotte will
be happy to install a hydraulic clutch and a 5 or 6-speed manual of your
choice for only $6,500. Whatever the drivetrain, an adjustable Air Ride
Technologies Shockwave Level II suspension which utilizes blue Chassis
Works tubular control arms and Wilwood four wheel disc brakes with drilled
and slotted rotors is in place provide the kind of driving athleticism that
can out maneuver anyone who might provide chase. At the corners of the car,
correctly finished 17 inch PS Engineering wheels are wrapped in sticky
245/45 front and 245/40 rear Goodyear Eagle F1 radials.
Open the car's Pepper Gray Metallic doors and you'll find a high quality
vinyl interior which would look right at home in an authentic Shelby Mustang. At the center of the
car, tightly pleated bucket seats sit at three sides of a traditional Cobra
branded console which holds a small adjustment panel for the cars air ride
suspension in front of chrome B&M Quick Silver shifter. At the front of the
car, a spectacular looking black and silver dash holds Classic Instruments
gauges above controls for the cars Vintage Air system and an MP3 compatible
Custom Autosound stereo that rumbles through Boss Audio speakers. And in
front of the driver, a polished aluminum and wood rimmed Lecarra steering
wheel is bolted to a Flaming River tilt steering column. And behind the
cockpit, a fully finished trunk houses a Fuel Safe fuel cell below hardware
for the cars suspension system and a Taylor aluminum battery box.
If you're looking for an instantly recognizable classic that's an absolute
blast to own, this is your kind of car! Call, click or visit
