Eleanor Mustang


Recommended Posts

I see there are 73 Mustang kits available.  I don't really know what was so special about this car in the movie.  I have seen the first movie where the daughter is standing by a beat up Mustang that was in the movie and explains the movie.  A lot of cars were destroyed.

To build a 73 Eleanor you will need a stock hood and the turn signals under the front bumper.  The movie Mustang was a 71 or 72 which had the 73 grille added on.  The rear had a non factory blackout treatment similar to a Boss 351 and the hood also had a non factory black stripes.  This Greenlight diecast comes pretty close to being accurate although I think the movie car had a orange tint.  The 1/18 diecast is bad - too many inaccuracies to mention.
