This 1966 Shelby Mustang GT350H is a modified example that has had three owners since its Hertz rental service ended in 1967. The second owner’s 41-year ownership began with a $15 down payment to Harris Ford in Lynnwood, Washington in 1967, included longterm use as a daily driver, and ended with a 2008 sale to the Florida-based third owner. This GT350H has been repainted in Wimbledon White with Guardsmen Blue stripes and is powered by a 289ci HiPo V8 said to be original, and paired to a non-original Ford 4-speed Toploader manual. Acquired by the seller three years ago, the car has since benefited from about $3,500 of servicing performed by a mechanic with Shelby experience. The seller is a licensed California dealer who is now offering this Shelby Mustang with records dating to the original Hertz purchase, many photos, original Shelby trim tag and owner’s manual, two SAAC Shelby Serial Number Verifications, and a clean California title.

The seller believes this GT350 retails all original body panels and metal. Last painted 30 years ago, the finish is said to have a few chips and scratches. A summary of the second owner’s 41 years with the car in Washington state and British Columbia is shown in the gallery, and includes these details about the exterior:

1966 – delivered in Ivy Green with gold stripes below the doors but not on the roof, and riding on Hertz Magnum 500 wheels
1971 – repainted British Racing Green with white GT350 stripes below doors to address paint flaws and star-cracks to fiberglass hood
1979 – stripped and repainted in original Ivy Green with gold door stripes
1986 – Hertz rims swapped for Shelby cast aluminum 10-spoke wheels
1987 – at 194k miles, stripped/repainted Wimbledon White with Guardsmen Blue GT350 stripes to roof and below doors

Indicated mileage is just over 6,900, and details from the second owner suggest the 5-digit odometer has rolled twice. This GT350 is said to show a clean history in Shelby American World Registry, and is described as a nice driver with no current issues. A recent service included an oil/filer change, and new fluids throughout.

This 289ci Windsor V8 is reportedly the original HiPo unit, which was rated at 306 hp when new. Drivetrain history captured by the longterm second owner includes these details:

1966 – Delivered with 289 and C-4 automatic transmission
1974 – Original 289 engine rebuilt for the first time at 122k miles
1977 – Ford 4-speed Toploader manual swapped for original C-4 automatic
1987 – Highly modified 351 Cleveland V8 swapped for 289 unit at 194k miles
2005 – Original 289 rebuilt for 2nd time, reinstalled, and paired with T-5 manual, at 205k miles
2007 – Non-original 4-speed Toploader manual reinstalled

This Shelby American Inc. invoice covers the sale of SFM 6S859 to Hertz Corporation for $3,865.34, including Hertz Special Wheels, radio, and brake booster. Additional documentation shown in the gallery below includes:

Original 1966 Shelby GT350 Owner’s Manual

That can't be good.  Starting off on BaT was a smart move for this car, but I can't see how eBay is going to get the car sold for what the seller wants.

ebay is a safe haven for shill bidding, and in ebay's case, this type of bidding is essentially a place holder while sellers and buyers have a chance to get together privately.

I am surprised they couldn't come to terms with the high bidder,

Top bid wasn't too far off. Unless the seller is sitting on a gold mine.
