(5 photos of a 1966 Raven Black Mustang Sprint Hardtop) This Black 1966 Sprint 200 hardtop is owned by Aldo Rivas of Clovis, New Mexico and is our Attitude Of The Week for September 6th, 2009. Aldo writes, I own an all original 1966 Mustang Sprint 200 which I located on Craigslist in September 2006. The Mustang was originally purchased from Muriel Carlson of Seattle WA on March 3, 1966 from Westside Ford, Inc. Seattle WA. The Mustang was posted as a 1966 Mustang Coupe, I started to get more interested when I found out it had 87,000 documented miles, and being an all original Sprint 200. After talking with the owner I found out the Mustang was his fathers who he purchased from the original owner in 1972. I drove to Lake Stevens to have a look at the Mustang and was surprised to see it in such good condition for being original. Today I have 92,000 miles on it, I only take it out on nice days. Some cool things are I have the original owners manual, all receipts from 1972 to present and top ot off the radio works. The only work I have done is a major brake job and minor carburetor rebuild. The Mustang still has the original spare tire that I took to Les Schwab to get inspected and re-inflated. The tires and wheels were purchased from Les Schwab in 1993 when the Mustang had 80,695 miles, so that calculates to the car being driven about 706 miles a year since 1993. I plan on keeping the Mustang original, sure she has some bumps and scratches but that adds to its character. Now if I only bought the 1967 Shelby GT-350 I test drove in El Paso TX in 1986 for the asking price of $7000 OBO, my life would be complete.

Dale tells us more, "After having an awesome Emberglo coupe, I fell in love with the GT350H and just had to have one. A real one is out of my budget so the next best thing was a tribute. So this is the fruits of my labour - a fully restored 1966 GT350H replica with all the good bits. Looks and drives great. I am really thrilled with the end result. It truly is a wonderful car, which looked after should live on forever."

This beauty is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting November 18, 2012. Daniel tells us more, "This 1966 factory GT coupe just spent the last 36 years with it's previous owner in Greensboro, North Carolina. Frank (now 82 years old) was the second owner as he'd bought it from the original owner who ordered it as a customer order back in late November 1965. It was optioned out nicely with an A code engine, power steering, a banded windscreen, green glass, pony interior, Rally Pac, long console, rear speaker, and AM radio to complement all the GT extras. It arrived in Australia in January of this year with 68,336 original miles. It still has many original features including the trunk liner, spare white wall tire, jack and ratchet, all panels and interior are also original (except for the carpet and mats), All bolt on parts such as power steering pump, 4bbl carburetor, intake manifold and so on are original numbers matching as well. This beautiful example of American automotive design still has the buck tag attached and is accompanied by the original factory build sheet of which I found the last piece (Bottom left hand corner) stuck under the passengers seat just a few weeks ago."

(1 photo of a 1966 Raven Black Mustang Shelby GT-350 Hertz Fastback Advertisement) Here is one of the Hertz Shelby GT500H advertisements from 1966. Yes, that is a blurry image. The GT350 is cook'n. It says, "There are only 1000 of these for rend in the entire world. Hertz has them all. It's the Shelby G.T.350-H. Only Hertz rents it. Cobra engine. Disc brakes. High speed wheels and tires. Stick shift or automatic. Rally stripes. High performance shocks. Torque controlled rear axle. The whole load. Why a rent-a-car with all this performance? We could have gotten a fleet of high-powered pseudo-sports-cars. But we figured you'd want to try a champion. Not just another imitation. So we got the one car that holds the Sports Car Club of America National Championship. And you can rent this 4-seater G.T.350-H from Hertz in most cities for a day. Or longer. But only from Hertz. Two stipulations. You have to be at least 25 years old. And you have to hurry. (It's all on a first-come-first-serve basis.) So make your reservation today. One local phone call reserves your car here. Or just about anywhere in the country. Call the only rent-a-car company that offers you a championship G.T.350-H."
