Auction Block: 1966 Shelby GT350-H Fastback

May 10, 2017

Category: Rides

Back in 1966, Ford and Hertz Rent-A-Car had a brilliant idea to help ease the mundane variety of rental cars available for those on vacation. Offer them something a little more special than the typical production sedan. In this case, a Shelby GT350-H Fastback. However, only 999 of these beauties were built that year and only 59 came of them equipped with an Ivy Green paint job seen here. Needless to say, rarity is an understatement with this ride.

Under the hood of the Fastback is a completely rebuilt Hi-Po 289ci engine courtesy of Don Mattie along with the correct Hi-Riser Cobra intake, Holley carburetor, and Buddy Bar valve covers. A dual exhaust system helps the ’66 Shelby breathe easy and the ride has only logged an impressive 72,401 miles since it rolled off the lot more than half a century ago. The car also hosts the original automatic transmission, SAAC registry book, owner’s manuals, and Hertz brochure. All proof of its authenticity for whoever’s lucky enough to scoop this car up when it hits the auction block next month.
