Who knew Ford built these cars......................

Recommended Posts

"Ford only made 48 Eleanors available for public to buy and this car is the 41st out of the 48 cars ever made. "

 

Gee and here I thought these cars were built by Unique Performance.

I got a laugh out of this! I had a gentleman trying to convince me that his 1968 GT500E was all original from the year it came out in 1968.... I was surprised he hadn't seen the ORIGINAL Gone in 60 Seconds when Eleanor was a 1971 fastback built to replicate a 1973 Mach 1! It was a "bite my tongue" moment for sure.

A few years ago I had a conversation with a writer from a popular Mustang magazine and he was telling me every time they had a picture of a "Eleanor" on the cover of their magazines, the retail off the shelf sales were 50% higher. I went back and looked and was amazed at how many times they had managed to stick a picture on their cover wither big or small. (LOL)
