(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."

I waited most of the day to get these shots. It was cloudy most of the morning and then the hood was only partially opened. The gold stripes on this car were amazing. You could see them from a long ways off.
(3 photos of a 1968 Sunlit Gold Mustang Shelby GT-350 Hertz Convertible) This is the first Shelby GT-350 built in 1968. It's also a Sunlit Gold Hertz car. The owner is Randy Cantrell from North Carolina. Randy tells us more, "This car has been in my family since 1970. It was my brother's car. He was killed in 1972. His wife had a hard time driving a straight drive. I had just turned 16 and gotten my 1st car - a 1965 2+2 fastback 289 auto. My brother's wife asked me if I would trade my car for the Shelby. I didn't hesitate and I've had it ever since. I had no ideal it was the 1st 68 GT-350 convertible made until Peter Disher from www.thecoralsnake.com did the an article on the car. Needless to say it's a special car to me." Peter Disher discovered that Shelby's first four conversions on 1968 Mustangs where Hertz show cars - a GT350 convertible, GT350 fastback, GT500 convertible, and a GT500 fastback. Each was painted Sunlit Gold. And THIS is the GT350 Hertz convertible.
