Auction Block: 1969 Shelby GT350H

Back in 1966, the madmen at Hertz decided it would be a good idea to tap Shelby to build a series of high-performance Ford Mustang GT350 pony cars for their now-legendary (and perhaps ill-conceived) “Rent-A-Racer” program. As you might imagine, it didn’t last very long — with production numbers dropping swiftly until, after just 152 were built for 1969, the program was killed altogether. Today, the remaining GT350Hs are highly sought-after by collectors and speed freaks alike. And that makes this 1969 example, that’s headed to the RM Sotheby’s auction block, a hot ticket item if there ever was one.

Boasting a menacing V8 engine under the hood — originally capable of over 300 horsepower and a comparable torque figure — it’s easy to see why these mean muscle cars are fawned over so completely. And this particular example, with its iconic green and gold paint job, is in remarkably good condition. That extends to the engine bay and interior, as well, which both look practically brand-new. Unfortunately, RM Sotheby’s has yet to release more information on this specific car. But if the pictures are to be believed, whoever ends up behind the wheel of this magnificent monster can count themselves lucky, indeed. Headed to Monterey in August of this year, this ’69 Shelby will hit the block with no reserve.
