Hertz Rent-A-Car advertised Shelby Designed Cobra Bred Ford Powered and Rented Exclusively by Hertz. Only 999 Shelby GT350s were built in 1966 as documented by the SAAC. This is one of only 59 built in Ivy Green making it very rare. This car is fully documented in the SAAC Shelby Registry and was recently verified by the 1965-66 Shelby registrar Howard C. Pardee. As the SAAC paperwork documents Serial #SFM6S1025 was ordered with the Hertz special wheels radio and brake booster. The total MSRP was $3762.84. This car was shipped on February 21 1966 to Jack Loftus Ford and then shipped to the Hertz Corporation located at OHare International Airport in Chicago IL. Three different service invoice copies from the SAAC are included. As the SAAC and letters from previous owners document this car has great ownership history in Illinois Pennsylvania Canada and Wisconsin. The car has 72401 original miles (the title reads mileage exempt). The last owner in Wisconsin purchased the car in 2004 as a survivor. He had the car completely restored in 2010 by well-known Shelby restorer and owner of Shelby Parts and Restoration Jim Cowles. Most of the parts that were replaced during the restoration were Ford NOS or OEM. The car retains almost all of its original sheet metal and has a framed fiberglass hood. The body is very straight and the Ivy Green paint with gold stripes is show-quality. All of the glass is original Ford Carlite. The Hertz wheels including the spare are original and were restored. The wheels are wrapped with correct Goodyear Polygas tires. The black interior is all-original with the exception of the carpet and a few other miscellaneous items. The original Cobra tach was restored. The engine compartment is very correct and highly detailed throughout. During the restoration both of the Ford VIN and Shelby serial number were verified with photos which are included. The original matching-numbers Hi-Po 289ci engine was completely rebuilt. It has the correct Hi-Riser Cobra intake Buddy Bar valve covers Holley carburetor oil pan oil filter and Auto Lite parts. The engine breathes through the correct headers and concours dual-exhaust system. The C4 automatic transmission and rear end were both completely rebuilt. The undercarriage is also very correct and highly detailed throughout. Its finished in the red oxide paint with proper overspray. Even the gas tank has the dates and stamps. Many extras are included such as the SAAC registry book binder with records owners manuals Hertz brochure key chain and model cars. This car has recently been completely serviced and detailed which is fully documented with an invoice. From the MS Classic Cars Collection.
