This 1966 Fastback has undergone our full nut and bolt rotisserie restoration and is now a replica of the famous Shelby GT350H. This was the first and only year that Shelby produced 1000 cars for the Hertz “Rent a Racer” initiative. The first 100 cars were supplied with a manual transmission however so many cars were returned with burnt out and broken clutches that subsequent cars were supplied with a C4 auto. This stunning car has been finished in correct Raven Black (Dupont) paint with Gold LeMans Stripes. The new black interior is complemented with a tribute Shelby dash mounted tachometer and Mota-Lita steering wheel. With a fully rebuilt and balanced high performance engine, you will understand why America couldn’t get enough of these weekend racers.
