"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.
