Specification

In 1966 Shelby American produced 2,378 GT 350s. Of those, 100 were made exclusively for Hertz Rent-A-Car with Le Mans stripes. The only difference between the rental cars and production cars was the beefed-up three-speed transmissions in the former.

The cars were shipped to major cities and rented. There were many stories - some true - that these cars were rented for the weekend, raced on the track and returned on Monday morning - they were known as 'Rent-a-Racers.'

Among the special features built into the cars were high rise intake manifold, headers, functioning cooling ducts, solid high lifter revving engine, finned aluminum oil pan, oversize rear brakes, shocks and sway bars.

Model History

This vehicle started life as a 1965 Fastback V8.  Unfortunately we don't have a great deal of history with the car so we don't know when it was restored as a Hertz Shelby GT350 "Rent -a- Racer". The engine has a mild cam which helps give this car real presence when driving.  This is probably one of the nicest sounding and driving Mustangs we have had.

We do know that within the last 18 months to 2 years the car was given some upgrades to the breaking and steering in the form of Power Disk brakes at the front and Power Steering courtesy of a Borgeson power steering box and pump.  This helps to make this a great car to drive.

Vehicle History

The interior of this car is very good condition and has almost certainly been subject to a restoration with the rest of the car. It is in period correct black vinyl and has the fold down rear seats that were a unique feature of the fastback.

As with the rest of the car the interior has been given some mod cons to increase the overall experience of owning and driving this car, an upgraded stereo with USB port and all round speakers have been installed to let you hear your tunes as you drive down the highway... 

Interior

Exterior

The panels, floors, sills and rails are in great condition on this car, obviously being stored in a barn in the desert was good for them.  The paintwork on the car was definitely a 10 footer, so as part of the restoration the car has been returned to bare metal and is being resprayed in the original Candy Apple Red.  The fit and finish of this car will be better than the day it rolled off the production line.

 

The White powered roof and Magnum 500 wheels with white lettered tires help to finish off the look of this car. 

 

This 69 Mustang is not one for the shy and retiring, however if you want to be seen then this is the car for you.....
