Man, wish this parked in my garage. Sweet car. '67 Just thought I would share. I am doing his job today. He had his car out in the driveway yesterday and he said I could snap some photos.

Can you believe that Hertz (car rentals) had Shelby GT 350's available. There was a waiting period exclusively for them. Some were found to have roll-cages welded and then removed (cut). It was not noticeable until you pulled back the carpeting. It appears that it was rented for the weekends to race on the tracks.

Anyone care to guess what that might cost?

I know some guys who used to rent 4x4 F150's and go get some "practice" in before the baja 500 in Mexico! LOL So the fact people were renting and racing Shelby's sounds about right...I mean why else would you rent one unless you wanted to cook the tires off of it!? LOL

As for cost, I will say if thats an Origional car / Resto and has proper documentation that car should go for between $100K and $120K

Most evaluation sites put a 67 shelby gt-350, in excellent condition, at around 80k. 66's go for 120k, 65's go for 200k plus. good luck finding one for sale.

very sweet car.

I heard guys used to rent the super-muscle cars and swap engines too. You'd rent one, get some beer, pizza, several friends, and an engine hoist. Swap out a Selby 350 or something for a stock 302 in a weekend. Like the previous post said, Hertz put the squash on that once they figured out what was going on.

I heard a story about a kid in high school who wore out the tires on his Camaro and thought Corvette rims would look good so he did a similar trick late night at a dealer. Dunno if the story is true but that was the story going around the school that week. I did see new rims on his car- looked like Corvette rims to me... This was back in '96 or so. Years later I asked the resource officer and he remembered the kid & car but said nothing came of it to his knowledge.

If memory serves me correct, the GT 350-H, signified Hertz.

A barnyard find.

You are correct. H was for Hertz.
The first video is a 66'. My first car was a 66 Mustang Fastback.
It was a great car.....bought it for $750 when I was 13. Wish I still had it.

They called them "Renta racers". My Dad's buddy has one that he serviced and bought from Hertz when it shot craps on the side of the Highway.

The '67 above has the wrong wheels on it so that can hurt the value unless he has them stored for safe keeping. I was definately born in the wrong era.

very nice ride. I knew of a gt 500 that was sold by a classic car dealer to a friends dad then they found out the rear end had the wrong number about a year later. The value dropped alot because it was no longer a numbers matching car.

On the rental cars I might know someone who rented a car to swap out his blown transmission that was 1000 miles out of warranty. Amazing what a few friends and some adult beverages can accomplish on a friday night.

When I was in Vegas for lightfair 08 Hertz had shelbys and corvetts. We contimplated renting one for an overnight run to the grand canyon but they were all booked.There is also a company there who rents classic cars by the hour or day. http://voyagerclassics.com/

I almost rented a 59' Cadillac Coupe De Ville Convertible one night from Voyager after a lucky win at the roulette table. Unfortunatly they were not answering the phone at 3am and probably better they didnt........LOL
