The Ford Mustang is a legend of its time. First manufactured in 1964, it was named after the P-51 Mustang fighter plane, and its first generation remains the most beloved.
The Mustang was manufactured in three versions: coupe, convertible, and fastback. Carol Shelby was a personal fan of this car, and the Mustang was used in many Hollywood productions – most notably, the green ”Built” Mustang of the eponymous film, and the “Eleanor” Mustang of Gone in 60 Seconds.
The legendary Chip Foose himself worked on implementing the design.
A piece of trivia: the 2000 Gone in 60 Seconds is actually a remake of a 1974 original, and in the original movie, a Ford Mustang SportsRoof was used as Eleanor. There’s a strong design legacy in the car — the Eleanor of the 2000 movie was created based on the design of Steve Stanford, and the basis of that design comes from the 1967 Dupont Pepper Grey Fastback model. The legendary Chip Foose himself worked on implementing the design.
