On the track, the GT350 was utterly dominant, scoring three straight SCCA B-Production National Championships for 1965-67. Taking advantage of the greater production capacity offered by Shelby American,s move to the former North American Aviation plant at LAX, Shelby General Manager Peyton Cramer identified the Hertz rental-car company as a strong potential fleet buyer for the GT350, since Hertz had just switched from Chevrolet to Ford. Since Cramer also knew that Hertz built its own cars until 1927 in black and gold livery, he pitched a special GT350 for Hertz in similar colors. An initial order for 200 cars quickly grew to 1,000 units, nearly 40 per cent of total GT350 production for 1966. The Hertz program generated massive publicity for Shelby and drew thousands of potential Ford buyers to dealer showrooms. In 1967, Hertz advertised its 1966 Shelby fleet for sale, with some sold directly from Hertz and a number sold via select Ford dealers. Shelby continued to supply Hertz through 1969 and these cars remain infamous and highly collectible as Shelby Rent-A-Racers. Numbered SFM6S1776 and listed in the Shelby Registry, this GT350H began life as a factory Raven Black, automatic-transmission Hertz car. According to the cars Registry entry, a radio was installed on April 14, 1966 by Hi-Performance Motors, the main Shelby dealer showroom co-owned by Carroll Shelby and fellow racer Lew Spencer in El Segundo, California, followed by delivery to S&C Ford Inc. of San Francisco, California, where the GT350 received its pre-delivery inspection before the handover to Hertz. Early service history is also documented in the Shelby Registry entry for the car. According to an accompanying sales agreement dated 1973, the GT350 was sold by second owner Don Lococo of Studio City, California, who is reported to have been an actor at the time. More recently, the Shelby was part of the noted Brothers Museum collection in Salem, Oregon, widely regarded one of the worlds finest and most comprehensive collections of American high-performance cars. Currently finished in White with Blue stripes, the GT350 is powered by a date-code correct K-code 289 CI V-8 engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. Highly desirable additional features include a dash-mounted tachometer, wood-rim steering wheel, and pushbutton AM radio. Carrying fascinating history and offered in the most desirable 4-speed specification, this 1966 Shelby GT350H Fastback is ready to own, show, and above all, enjoy as originally intended.
