Here is the original description:
1966 Ford Mustang Fastback Shelby GT350 Hertz Recreation. 289 V8 with C4 automatic transmission. Much money and hardwork has been invested in creating this car ensuring it is as authentic to an original Hertz Shelby as possible.
The Hertz association with Shelby started in 1966 when Carroll Shelby struck a deal with The Hertz Corporation to supply approximately 1000 cars from Shelby America to the Hertz Sports Car Club. The cars could then be rented for $17 per day from numerous airports across America. These cars have since become known as the famed Rent-a-Racers. Of the cars supplied, 800 were painted in black with gold Le Mans stripes with an automatic transmission. Today, these cars are some of the most prized and valued Shelby Mustangs out there!
