1966 Shelby GT350-H
There’s no point in explaining Shelby madness; you should get its charm by now, and anyone who loves big rumbling engines should experience one of the icon’s creations before leaving this planet. As such, you can understand my excitement about stumbling upon this gorgeous 1966 Shelby GT350-H, also known as the Rent-A-Racer. Built for Hertz, the GT350-H was a powerful muscle car meant to be enjoyed by anyone willing to pay for it – for a day, two, or the rest of y our life.
Powered by a 289 cubic-inch (4.7-liter) V8, the 1966 Shelby GT350-H came with a three-speed automatic transmission. Ford and Shelby built about 1,000 of these in 1966, and the vast majority came in black with gold stripes, although 59 were finished off in Ivy Green – like this one. Well cared and original, this iconic Ford is set to find a new owner at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, with purchase costs to be between $100,000 and $200,000. Worth every penny!
