Halicki Films Company, producer of the motion picture "Gone in 60 Seconds," is pleased to announce that Classic Recreations has been selected as the exclusive, first ever, officially-licensed custom fabricator to build the iconic "Eleanor" Mustang from "Gone in 60 Seconds." "Eleanor" captured everyone’s hearts in her reprisal role in the 2000 feature film "Gone in 60 Seconds," starring with her leading man, Nicolas Cage. Now, for the very first time, movie fans and Mustang enthusiasts alike can own their own authentic, officially-licensed "Gone in 60 Seconds Eleanor" collectible vehicle.
The recent production of the 1967 Mustang Fastback bodies licensed and authorized by Ford has streamlined the customizing process so that those who desire their own movie star car can purchase a brand-new "Eleanor" Mustang fabricated from the ground up with all new body and parts. Customers may also choose to modify one of Classic Recreations’ 1967 original Mustang bodies with all new parts. In either case, the Classic Recreations team will work tirelessly at each step of the process to provide absolute customer satisfaction and complete reliability.
Customers wishing to purchase an "Eleanor" will have their choice between the 535-horsepower FI Model, promising estimated top speeds of 172 mph and 4.90-second 0-60-mph quarter-mile times priced at $139,900, or the 770-horsepower FIS Model ($189,900) with a modified rear suspension.
Halicki Films Company granted Classic Recreations the license to build the only genuine "Eleanors" after numerous visits to the company’s Oklahoma factory and a full battery of rigorous background and criteria checks. The agreement grants Classic Recreations the right to license the intellectual properties held exclusively by Halicki Films Company, including the copyrights, trademarks, trade dress and logos in and to "Eleanor" and "Gone in 60 Seconds," and "Eleanor’s" one-of-a-kind, amazing movie looks, in connection with the manufacturing, marketing, sale and distribution of the officially licensed collectible "Gone in 60 Seconds Eleanor."
To ensure the safety of each transaction, Classic Recreation will maintain each customer’s initial deposit and purchase fee in an escrow account at a federally-insured financial institution until such time as the customer’s car is completed and ready for delivery.
