R3 Performance Products Named Manufacturer of Body Shell, Chassis and Suspension of ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ Eleanor Replicas
R3 Performance Products has been named the manufacturer of the official reproduction body shells, chassis and suspension for Gone in 60 Seconds Eleanor Mustang replicas being hand built by Brand New Muscle Car.
“This is an exciting time,” says Michael Leone from Gone in 60 Seconds, Eleanor Licensing LLC and car designer of the Lee Iacocca (Father of the Mustang) IACOCCA 45th Silver Anniversary Fastback Edition. “After driving Eleanor with the new R3’s reproduction body shell and suspension, you know in seconds why Ford Motor Company licensed R3 to build reproduction body shells, chassis and suspension. It’s amazing you get both worlds, comfort and when you push the pedal down… it has that tight racing-track feel as in all super cars.”
These all-new, all-metal, Ford-Licensed reproduction body shells are available now. They are real Ford Mustangs with Ford Vehicle Serial Numbers for title and registration. They are hand-crafted and built from scratch by R3PP in Tulsa, Oklahoma. R3’s proprietary suspension system utilizes characteristics of modern handling and performance while updating the geometry and construction of the classic muscle car. The bolt-on system features adjustable coil-over shocks and billet aluminum arms.
