INDIANAPOLIS — The modified 1967 Ford Mustang GT500 — better known as "Eleanor" — from Gone in 60 Seconds will cross the auction block in May.

This is one of several cars made for the movie, but auction house Mecum describes this as the "hero" car driven by actor Nicolas Cage during filming and "used in movie close-ups, posters and promotional materials."

The auction house did not provide an estimate on what Eleanor is expected to fetch.

The car was built by Cinema Vehicle Services in collaboration with Chip Foose, who mocked up Eleanor's body pieces on a Mustang using clay and wood, Mecum notes.

"Molds were then made to produce a new fiberglass front end filled with high-powered PIAA driving lights, new fender flares, side skirts and scoops, hood and trunk lid," it said in the lot description on its Web site.

It is "presented in movie-used condition with minor touch ups," the auction house said. The Mustang is equipped with a 400-horsepower Ford crate engine and a four-speed manual transmission.

The car comes with a certificate of authenticity and a special plaque. It is offered from a private collection.

Edmunds says: The best guess is that Eleanor will fetch around $100,000.
