This 1966 Shelby GT350-H was owned by the same individual after being decommissioned by Herzt, until 2006. Everything on this car has been reproduced or restored to new condition. The 289ci engine under the hood was rebuilt to 306hp specifications and all of the correct Shelby components were reinstalled. The engine wears Ford Blue paint along with a proper Shelby-spec high-rise intake and Autolite 4-barrel carburetor. Reproduction hoses, clamps and a new wiring harness were installed. Underneath is the standard Hertz-issued C4 3-speed automatic transmission, as well as a 9” rear.
Restoration photos show the body shell painted in correct red oxide primer, and the floors show correct black overspray. A set of Magnum 500 wheels wear Goodyear Blue Streak tires. The interior of this GT350-H has been fully restored to stock specifications with all of the standard Shelby goodies, including a wood-rimmed steering wheel and a comprehensive set of rebuilt gauges with a dash-mounted tachometer. The entire interior is new. This restoration produced a laser-straight body with all lines and gaps well-aligned. It comes with the original invoice from Shelby American Inc. to Hertz Corporation, via Larsen Ford, dated May 10, 1966.
The invoice also shows that Hertz paid Shelby a total of $3,820.75 for the car on August 19, 1966. Shipping records from Shelby to Larsen Ford and Hertz are included, as well as a warranty repair invoice, all three owner’s manuals, photo of the OEM Ford VIN stamping on each side of the body, photo of the original Shelby stamping, photo of the engine block casting numbers and date code, as well as the photos documenting the extensive restoration.
