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.  Read More...

BACKGROUND

Armed with research on Hertz’s beginnings in the business, Cramer pitched a fleet of Hertz Shelbys 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 Shelbys reflected most of the changes made to 1966 Shelbys. 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 Shelbys of all. Documented in the Shelby Registry, serial number SFM6S1967 was originally sent to Larsen Ford in White Plains, New York, for dealer preparation prior to delivery to Hertz New York. The car boasts factory-correct Raven Black and Gold paint. While it was built after the switch from 4-speed manual transmissions, this car is equipped with the 289 CI small-block mated to a 4-speed, a common revision in cars originally equipped with the C6 automatic.
