Whats the difference between Gone in 60 Seconds GT500 Shebly, and Normal GT500 Shelby Mustang?

I know the one in the movie Gone In 60 Seconds "Eleanor" is NOT a normal 1967 Shebly GT500 Mustang Fastback. Is there an aftermarket body kit on it?

imdb

# Cinema Vehicle Services actually produced 12 different "Eleanors" for use in the production of this film. None of the 12 were actual Shelby Mustangs but converted standard 1967 Mustang fastbacks. Of those cars, seven survived the filming in various states of repair. A 13th Eleanor, based on a real 1967 Shelby GT500 was prepared by Cinema Vehicle Services for producer Jerry Bruckheimer, but that car did not appear in the film.

# Seven Eleanor replicas were made for use in this movie. Five of them were totaled during stunt sequences. Nicolas Cage and Jerry Bruckheimer kept the remaining two. Cage regularly takes Eleanor out for joy rides while Bruckheimer is afraid of driving her.

# Nicolas Cage did most of his own stunt driving for the film. He attended the Bondurant Driving School in Phoenix, Arizona, Willow Springs (another car driving school), and the Bobby Ore Stunt Driving School in preparation for the film. He liked the race car driving school so much that he continued to pursue it as a hobby after shooting was completed.

# The only true Shelby GT500 in the movie was given to Nicolas Cage's character by Giovanni Ribisi's character at the end of the movie. The owner consented to the vehicle being used as long as it was returned in the original condition. Every part that could be unbolted, was and replaced by a junked replacement part.

As far as I know, as far as looks goes, other then the side skirt exhaust the movie version had, the GT 500 from the movie and a real GT 500 look exactly the same. They did not add any cosmetic add ons to the movie GT 500. If you could afford to buy one, it should look exactly like the one from the movie.
