$225,000 For A Rental Car? Supercharged Shelby GT350H Mustang

In 1966, a wild idea was born: let’s turn rental cars into raucous rockets. Hertz and Shelby unleashed 1,000 GT350 Hs onto unsuspecting streets, a move that would shape a legend. These weren’t just Mustangs; they were a middle finger to blandness, a statement that even those stuck with daily commutes could experience a slice of track-bred insanity.

Don’t let the rental car origins fool you. This 1966 Shelby GT350 H hides a racer’s heart. Its 289 cubic inch V8 isn’t tuned for comfort – it’s tuned for power, growling a rebellious tune through a Holley 4-barrel carburetor. This engine wants to be revved, its peak horsepower waiting to be unleashed.

Forget wallowing around corners; the upgraded suspension, stiffer springs, and improved brakes beg to be pushed hard. You won’t find a lot of creature comforts in here, but that’s not the point. The stripped-down interior makes every mechanical nuance, every touch of the wheel a visceral connection to the machine.

And then there’s the look. Bold Le Mans stripes in gold slashing across a black body, side scoops that hint at the beast within, and those 10-spoke wheels…this is a Mustang on a warpath. This isn’t subtle or refined; it’s a beautiful act of automotive defiance.

The Shelby GT350 H wasn’t meant to be babied. It’s a slice of history, a reminder of a time when performance rattled suburbia. Whether you crave a piece of ’60s racing mystique or a rebellious reminder that driving should be an experience, this Shelby promises an unforgettable ride.
