Spotted on the Streets: A Rental Car?

Spotted on the Streets: A Rental Car?

Once upon a time you could rent a Shelby GT350 from Hertz Rental Car for $17 dollars a day and 17 cents a mile.  In 1966 Shelby American Co. struck a deal with Hertz to offer the ’66 GT350H Mustang as a rental car.  The 1966 Shelby GT350H, based on the 1966 GT350, featured a Cobra 289 High Performance V8 engine outputting 306 hp and 329 lb-ft of torque.  We’ve become so accustomed to modern high HP cars that its easy to forget that 306HP is no joke.  Only 1,001 of these models were produced.

Fast forward to 2018 and I came across this original beast in Mission Beach, California. A brief conversation revealed that this is indeed one of the original '66 Shelby Mustangs.
