1969 Shelby Other Shelby Models
Car for sale by RM Auctions Inc in Auburn, Indiana 46706
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

This Shelby GT350 H fastback coupe is one of the special Shelby Mustangs produced for the Hertz Rental Car Company Rent-a-Racer program (as noted by the H in the model name). As Shelby wanted to increase the model s exposure through fleet sales, they approached Hertz, and Hertz bought in. For a few dollars a day, Hertz customers could rent a GT350 H, get a taste of Shelby-powered Mustang performance, and maybe even opt to purchase one. The program began in 1966 with the establishment of the Hertz Sports Car Club. That year 42% of Shelby production went to Hertz. By 1969 just 5% only 152 cars were Hertz-bound. Those cars were distinguished by their serial numbers and DSO. This car, DSO number 842650 verified by the Shelby American World Registry and a Deluxe Marti Report is part of that exceedingly rare group.
This GT350 H was built in April 1969 and delivered to Ron s Ford Sales in Bristol, Tennessee. The car is classic Black Jade with contrasting Hertz gold side stripes. It came with a 351 Cleveland V-8 and options including FMX Cruise-O-Matic transmission, Traction-Lok differential, power steering, power brakes with front discs, Selectaire air-conditioning, tinted glass, deluxe seat belts, a sport-deck rear seat, tilt-away steering wheel, AM radio, visibility group, and combination tachometer/trip meter. The trunk still carries a space-saver spare tire, jack, and jack handle.
The Shelby GT350 H has been well maintained in original condition with no modifications except for one repaint in its original color. Mileage is reportedly under 18,000. The car had been part of a Sam Pack collection since 2007 and was sold to its current owner in 2014. Today the GT350 shows beautifully, a reflection of the care it has received over the years. Its next owner will have the chance to appreciate the Shelby-Mustang performance that made it a joy to drive back in the 60s.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/mo19.
