In an effort to stimulate even more sales for 1966, Carroll Shelby asked Peyton Cramer, his marketing man and general manager, to try some fleet sales. To everybody's amazement, the Hertz Rental Car Company purchased 1000 cars. 1966 Shelby GT350 Hertz #1290 is a fairly early car built in March and delivered to Hertz Rent a Car in Boston.  She appears now as she did when she was new: Black with Gold stripes, Automatic transmission and radio. This car is the recipient of a recent rotisserie restoration and features a highly original interior, new carpets and headliner only. The undercarriage is finished in correct red epoxy primer. The 289 HiPo is fresh and lively. The Hertz Rent-a-racer has much historical significance, an icon in the muscle car realm and gives great driver satisfaction.




She is offered at $115,000 and is located in Ann Arbor, MI.  I have personally seen, inspected, photographed and video taped this vehicle.  For additional photos and information visit:  http://www.showyourauto.com/am/listings/l0298.html  Please PM me, Patrick Krook, email at pat@showyourauto.com or call 847-838-3749

     I have a few quick observations,
       Incorrect (inconsistant with close vin #'d cars) vin plate stamping.
       Black painted engine
       Cast Iron exhaust manifolds
       Holley carb and odd fuel filter angle.
     Beautiful car, great value, just a couple of items that to me stick out "like a sore thumb". This is meant to be constructive criticism, not degrading. I do not mean to offend .

Please limit ALL replies in this forum to specific questions, to the seller, about the car. Cross-talk, or conversations about the item among members, should be made on another thread in the Discussion area....not on the For Sale thread.

Thanks for your future cooperation.
