"Gone In 60 Seconds" (1974; subtitled)

YouTube caption: "Actor and director H.B. Halicki made this great action movie about an insurance investigator named Maindrian Pace who, with his team, leads a double-life as an unstoppable car thief. Then a South American drug lord pays Pace to steal 48 cars for him. All of the cars except a 1973 Ford Mustang are in the bag. As Pace prepares to rip off the fastback, code-named 'Eleanor,' in Long Beach, he is unaware that his boss has tipped off the police after a business dispute. Detectives are waiting and pursue Pace through five cities as he desperately tries to get away."

Below, the poster for the film.


You may be more familiar with the 2000 remake starring Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie.
