Eleanor Mustang pulls strong bidding at Lloyds
Eleanor Mustangs always get plenty of interest.

For something that appeared as a supporting role in a 2000 car movie, the Eleanour Mustang out of Gone in Sixty Seconds has had an enormous impact. This example of a tribute car pulled enthusiastic bidding at today's online American Muscle Car auction at Lloyds, finishing at $107,000 (lot 22).

The flick, starring Nicholas Cage and Angelina Jolie, was in fact a remake of a seventies film with a similar theme. However it was the silver/grey Steve Stanford-styled Mustang which became the real star.

Several businesses here and in the USA have made a living out of building replicas, and it doesn't look like stopping any time soon.

Two street machines pulled big numbers. One, a well-known Camaro with suicide doors popped an impressive $111,000 (lot 17), while a very tough-looking Camaro pulled $96,000 (lot 18).

For those who prefer stock machinery, a very nice 1969 Mustang Fastback with a 428 amd C6 auto (lot 21) went for $79,000.
