As rare as Shelby GT350s are, it’s even harder to find them in pristine, working condition — especially when they’ve undergone extensive travel at the mercy of countless drivers. RM Sotheby’s recently revealed an immaculate inclusion to their upcoming Fort Lauderdale auction — a 1966 Shelby GT350 H that challenges the norm when it comes to excessively used vehicles.

It might come as a surprise to hear that the stunning GT350 in question was once utilized as a rentable vehicle. From 1966 to 1967, the classic pony car was housed within a Hertz just outside of Dayton, Ohio, and spent time at the Gallagher Ford Center in West Virginia before being sold to a private owner in 1969. This pristine Candy Apple Red variant is one of only 50 platforms believed to have been finished in the color, as well as one of 999 other GT350 vehicles within the Hertz inventory. In 1974, the car was fully restored — and luckily, it remained entirely original — utilizing a standard 306 horsepower Shelby-enhanced Hi-Po V8 engine and a C4 automatic transmission that remains in top condition. The vehicle is slated for auction at the end of March with an estimated starting price of $180,000.

Purchase: $180,000+
