'66 Hertz Shelby Mustang GT350-H, factory 4spd

SFM6S588 was delivered to a Hertz rental agency in Phoenix, AZ in December of 1966. A full Concours restoration was completed in Fall of 2015, bringing the car back to its “as factory delivered” form. The car still retains the original T-10 4-speed it was born with along with a date code correct service replacement HiPo 289 installed by its first owner. After its "Rent-A-Racer" duties were complete, it was sold in May of 1967 to Gary Ray, who fitted it with a Shelby/Paxton Supercharger and Detroit Locker rear-end and then went racing! Personalization of these cars was the order of the day, as commanded by Carroll Shelby himself “We built these cars to drive the "HELL" out of them, not to be museum pieces!" In April of 1974 Mr. Ray put the car up for sale in AutoWeek advertising that the car featured a new, date-code correct K Code HiPo 289 installed and 47,000 miles on the odometer. The reason? He bought himself a ’66 289 Cobra! The Hertz car passed through the hands of Dean Watts of Pleasanton, CA. From there, it traveled to the Pacific Northwest to Roger Winslow of Tacoma, WA and out of the public consciousness. It was discovered “barn fresh” around 2012 in Yakima, Washington hibernating under a tarp with just under 47,800 miles on the odometer, not registered since 1983. So, since 1974 it has been sitting with a mere 800 miles traveled from the time Mr. Ray sold it. Of the 1,001 Hertz cars produced in 1966, only 85 were fitted with a manual transmission. It is rare to find a GT350H factory equipped a 4 speed, let alone the original aluminum case T-10. In addition to Shelby American Automobile Club documentation and registry history, we also have titles dating back to 1978.
