1966 Shelby GT350H

The 1966 Shelby GT350H was a high-performance version of the Ford Mustang, created by Carroll Shelby in partnership with Hertz Rent-a-Car. The H in the name stands for “Hertz” and the GT350 part of the name refers to the car’s performance capabilities.

The GT350H was powered by a 289-cubic inch V-8 engine that produced 306 horsepower and 329 lb-ft of torque. It had a four-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The suspension was upgraded with stronger springs, shocks, and anti-roll bars, and the brakes were upgraded as well.

The most notable feature of the GT350H was its black and gold paint scheme, which was designed specifically for Hertz. The cars were only available for rent from Hertz locations, and they became a popular choice with people who wanted to rent a sports car for a weekend or a special occasion.

Today, the GT350H is a highly sought-after collector car. Only 1,000 were produced, and their rarity and unique history make them a valuable addition to any collection.
