vehicle description
1966 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350H Fastback

Ford enjoyed a series of marketing victories in the early '60s, one of which was replacing Chevrolet as the supplier to car rental giant Hertz. Carroll Shelby capitalized on the new relationship, sending Shelby American GM Peyton Cramer to pitch the new GT350 as a replacement for Corvette in Hertz’s Sports Car Club. Armed with research on Hertz’s beginnings in the business, Cramer pitched a fleet of Hertz Shelby’s finished in Raven Black with Gold striping, reflecting the company’s long-time corporate color scheme. Hertz management loved the idea, and just before Christmas 1965, Shelby American received a demand letter from Hertz for 1,000 GT350s. The new Hertz Shelby’s reflected most of the changes made to 1966 Shelby’s.

Functional body-side brake cooling scoops were added, quarter windows replaced the stock Mustang air extractor louvers; a Cobra tachometer replaced the 1965 dash gauge pod, and most cars were produced with a folding rear seat in place of the fiberglass rear shelf. Today the GT350H Rent-A-Racer is one of the most desirable Shelby’s of all. Documented in the Shelby Registry, this 1966 Shelby GT350H Fastback retains much of its original aspects, including its original Holley Lemans center-hung carburetor, correct open-letter intake manifold, open-letter valve cover, T oil pan, 9-inch rear end with locker, magnum 500 Hurst wheels and factory seats and interior.

Originally sent to Metke Ford Motors in Bellevue, WA for dealer preparation prior to delivery to Hertz Seattle, WA,  SFM61621, Hertz Rent-A-Racer has a matching numbers 289 CI Hi-Po V8 engine.
