Students enrolled in a unique degree program at a southeastern Michigan community college are building an “Eleanor” tribute car to benefit charity. With the help of Chip Foose, Dynacorn and Roush Performance, students taking automotive restoration and customization coursework at Washtenaw Community College will finish the car in advance of an October drawing to benefit the Salvation Army of Washtenaw County and the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan.

If work done by previous students is any indication, the 1967 Shelby tribute vehicle should be well worth the $15 tickets being sold for a chance to own this new car. The top students from WCC’s Automotive Services department participate in the Custom Cars and Concepts program, which has created a series of award-winning customized vehicles in the past few years, including a 1964 Chevrolet Impala 409 convertible that was chosen for the prestigious Riddler Row at Autorama. Their newest project is a 1967 Ford Mustang GT500 fastback, based on the famed “Eleanor” car seen in both the original and the remake of the classic car movie “Gone in 60 Seconds.”

The then-completed car will be on display at WCC’s annual campus car show in early October, where a drawing will be held to determine its new owner. In addition to the car, the winner will receive a trip in early November to the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, where the car will be showcased.  Click here, for more information.

    I love mustangs, grew up with my Dad racing his 65 Fastback, which is restored and is shown at local shows. I would love to give him this gift of a car, as he always has had and will have a fascination and love of the Mustang, which since my Mom passed would make this an extra love in his life.

    PLEASE HELP US WIN.., A CAR or HOME,
    With Social Security fixing to cut our income again we can’t afford it but they don’t care. But I guess we will be out on the streets with our little six year old daughter, we are both totally disable and our home we have had and worked hard for over thirteen plus years ( we owe about two years on it) and it would have been ours. But I guess that’s just meant to be. We are worried more about our little one than any-thing else, she deserves to have her own room and things just like any other kid, and I’m sorry to bother you good folks with this, maybe you all may know some one that can help. Well, thanks for your time and may God Bless each of you and good luck with all you do in life.
    Love In Christ,

  32. Donald Peterson says:

    I have owned the 1964 1/2 and the 1967 fastback when I was a young man in the 60′s what a dream it would be to own the best car ever made. It would not only make me the happiest man alive but it would make my wife happy because she would not have to listen to my dream every day.

  33. Julie says:

    This has been my dream car since…. Ever! A few years ago I thought you never know… Work hard and some dreams come true. I bought a car 3 years ago. Not a dream car, and the electric company’s transformer blew up and the live wire and fire made it worthless in value. Paid for a crap lawyer on a disability budget and they still have not resolved it. No lawyer now. Single mom with a dream to pass that car down to my son one day. He is 7. But life is short! He would love it as much as I do if that’s possible. If I won lotto. It’s on the list. Great job! Gonna watch gone in 60 seconds right now just to dream a bit more.
