Car 19 – 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500 ‘Eleanor’

**This Shelby is now the only genuine 1967 GT500 available for chauffeur wedding hire in the UK*

This stunning authentic 1967 Mustang Fastback was imported to the UK in July 2010 from the sunny state of Florida. It was purchased from a police officer who had invested tens of thousands of dollars to transition the car to the iconic Eleanor body shape, complete with the proper 429 cubic engine. The rebuilt engine, a 429 bored with a 30-over mild cam, arrived with less than 1100 miles on the clock. Additionally, the late Carroll Shelby signed the glove box a few years before he passed. When the car arrived at Southampton port it had a powerful nitrous package in the rear as there were no back seats. Since the car was purchased for wedding hire, the nitrous package was removed and rear seats were installed.

Since its debut in 2010, Eleanor has been listed in the Eleanor World Registry (No. 136) and featured in music and corporate videos. Eleanor has been a favourite choice for grooms and brides alike.

The lowdown

The 1967 Shelby GT500 was the first model built in the Shelby GT500 range. It’s based on the 1967 Mustang Fastback and is equipped with a 428cu (7.0L) V8. Only 300 were ever made.

Several body parts of the GT500 were made of fibreglass including the side intakes and bonnet. The 1967 GT500 is famous worldwide for its appearance in the 2000 action movie remake of “Gone in 60 Seconds.”

What Our Customers Think

  • We hired the Shelby GT500, Eleanor, as a surprise to take our Son to his Wedding. The car was absolutely lovely, a total hit with everyone and the driver Eddie was fantastic, a really happy guy who genuinely seemed to enjoy the day too! Our son was overwhelmed with the car and it just helped to make the day a really unforgettable, very memorable experience. Thanks so much! We would thoroughly recommend the cars and look forward to hiring them again.

  • I hired 'Eleanor' for my wedding last year and the service was very professional. The communication was great and the driver arrived before the time arranged. He had patience throughout the day and was a very nice man, compared to a lot of these drivers out there. Very good service and I wish the company the best for the future!

    Philip Maqbool

  • I booked the Shelby GT500 for my son's 21st birthday in February last year. My son was speechless when he saw the car and I cannot even describe the joy after the ride! It has taken him a few months to come down from the high :-) The driver was absolutely lovely and he took the time to explain things. My son said that heads turned hearing this "beast" come down the motorway and even I had goose bumps hearing it. I cannot recommend you highly enough and I know my son would certainly like the opportunity to use you again.

    I would also mention that I contacted several companies before you and you were the only one who had the decency and the common courtesy to respond. Good luck with your future ventures.

  • This is just a quick note to say thankyou for arranging the hire of the mustang, the wedding day was so amazing, made all the more special by the car, everyone is still talking about it and we have got some wonderful memories to keep. I have already emailed Eddie the owner to say thank you, but just wanted to thank you both for making the booking go so smoothly,
    With kindest regards, Aileen

    Aileen Chapman

  • Hired the 67 Eleanor for our wedding day for my Husband & Son as a surprise on Saturday (13th May) and it was a huge hit with our guests. To say they were surprised would be an understatement! Great communication from the moment I booked with the Ford Mustang Wedding company and the owner Eddie himself. The driver on the day was absolutely top and I can't thank him enough for hanging around after the ceremony so we could have some photos with her and hear her roar!

    Leigh Weston

  • I know I have said this a few times, but I would like to thank you again from the bottom of my heart. Despite the challenges, I am immensely happy that I chose to book you for my sisters wedding. Your help on the day and arranging the drive today was above and beyond what I expected and anyone who makes the choice to book your services in the future is making an excellent choice. Whilst Eleanor is a beautiful car, I am certain that no other driver would have given us the experience that you have.

    You have succeeded in making my sisters year. She kept talking about it for ages and even went so far as to see how much it would cost her to buy a customised Mustang, the short answer, she will be saving for some time!
