Eleanor

Lego Ford Mustang GT500 Eleanor

Ah Nicolas Cage, the man who literally can’t turn down any film role, no matter how terrible it may be. Ghost Rider, Left Behind, Drive Angry, The Wicker Man, Ghost Rider 2…

But there was a time when Nic made decent movies. This movie car is not from that time, but we suppose it sits somewhere in the middle. Cage’s remake of the car theft action film ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ was enjoyable enough, and it gave a starring role to a modified 1967 Mustang GT500 named Eleanor, which can only be a good thing.

This is Ralph Savelsberg‘s remake of his own original version of Eleanor from a few years ago, and there’s more to see of his brilliant GT500 build (plus a brick-built Nic Cage) at his photostream via the link above.

Pony Express

Lego Ford mustang and Horse Box

Peteris Sprogis shows us that a tow car doesn’t have to be a boring saloon or SUV with a caravan behind it. His horses get pulled by one of their own, a superbly striped 1967 Ford Mustang GT500. Easy on the gas pedal Peteris…

A Super Car

Ford Mustang Shelby GT500It’s a supercar double today here at The Lego Car Blog. And this one is really super. Built by Technic legend Sheepo, this Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 is the pinnacle of what can be achieved from LEGO bricks technically. The well-known Lego blogs are often not interested in the technical realism of Lego models. Here though, whilst we may not feature an expertly landscaped castle, we do love to see what Lego can be used to do technically. With Sheepo’s talent and engineering prowess it can be used to do a lot.

This astonishing Shelby Mustang GT500 features the usual Technic supercar requirements (steering, suspension, engine and gearbox) and adds remote control drive via LEGO’s versatile Power Functions system. But Sheepo doesn’t stop there. Not only does his Mustang drive and steer remotely, it features a remotely operated sequential 5+R gearbox with an automatically triggered clutch, and remotely operated disc brakes that can also be engaged from a working pedal in the cabin. If it was any more realistic this car would be for sale in a Ford dealership.

See all of the photos and join in the discussion on Eurobricks, and you can check out the full technical specifications and builder commentary of the GT500 on Sheepo’s website here.

Gone in 60 Seconds

Ford Mustang GT500 'Eleanor' LegoA retired car thief and his crew are required to steal 50 cars in one night to pay a debt. A thin plot for sure, but within it are some very good car chases, lots of mad Nic Cage acting, Angelina Jolie, and this; the Mustang GT500 ‘Eleanor’. Ralph Savelsberg rebuilds the movie legend, complete with Memphis Raines figure, on Flickr, which the Elves successfully ‘boosted’ and brought to TLCB office for us to share. Check it out at Ralph’s photostream while they lay low.

The real thing

The real thing: raphy’s Mustang

According to his Flickr comments raphy said that this looked better in his mind than it turned out in bricks.  We don’t know what Raphy, clearly one of the best TFOL Lego car builders around, had in his mind when building this Mustang, but we think the result is superb.  It even convinced The Lego Car Blog Towers that he should earn our ‘Featured TFOL’ accolade.

Check out the awesome work of Raphy on Flickr.

Mustang GT500 Super Snake

Shelby Super Snake

If there’s a more American car in existence we’re yet to find it. Named after a wild horse, a poisonous snake, the number of horsepower it originally had, and a man, the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake is a bit of a mouthful. But a damn tasty mouthful. Senator Chincilla is the chef behind it.
