1966 Ford Mustang Shelby Description:

Ford enjoyed a series of marketing victories in the early '60s, one of which was replacing Chevrolet as the supplier to car rental giant Hertz. Carroll Shelby capitalized on the new relationship, sending Shelby American GM Peyton Cramer to pitch the new GT350 as a replacement for Corvette in Hertz’s Sports Car Club. Armed with research on Hertz’s beginnings in the business, Cramer pitched a fleet of Hertz Shelby’s finished in Raven Black with Gold striping, reflecting the company’s long-time corporate color scheme. Hertz management loved the idea, and just before Christmas 1965, Shelby American received a demand letter from Hertz for 1,000 GT350s. The new Hertz Shelby’s reflected most of the changes made to 1966 Shelby’s.

Functional body-side brake cooling scoops were added, quarter windows replaced the stock Mustang air extractor louvers; a Cobra tachometer replaced the 1965 dash gauge pod, and most cars were produced with a folding rear seat in place of the fiberglass rear shelf. Today the GT350H Rent-A-Racer is one of the most desirable Shelby’s of all. Documented in the Shelby Registry, this 1966 Shelby GT350H Fastback retains much of its original aspects, including its original Holley Lemans center-hung carburetor, correct open-letter intake manifold, open-letter valve cover, T oil pan, 9-inch rear end with locker, magnum 500 Hurst wheels and factory seats and interior.

Originally sent to Metke Ford Motors in Bellevue, WA for dealer preparation prior to delivery to Hertz Seattle, WA, SFM61621, Hertz Rent-A-Racer has a matching numbers 289 CI Hi-Po V-8 engine.

Stephen Becker personally works side by side with the Shelby American Automobile Club registrars and have supported their efforts to keep Carroll Shelby’s automobiles and contribution to the automotive industry alive.


Stephen Becker is one of the most renowned Shelby authorities in the world, announced the introduction of a new certified appraisal program for 1960s Shelby Cobras, GT350s and GT500s. Previously available only to a select group of companies and celebrities, SGB’s invaluable expertise is now available to individuals contemplating the sale or purchase of a vintage Shelby car.


“For years, MOPAR, Corvette and Ford collectors have had access to detailed appraisals from experts in those cars, but enthusiasts have not been able to tap a form program when considering the purchase or sale of a Shelby,” said Becker. “With the expertise, records and access to details of Cobras, GT500s and GT350s available through me, collectors can now have the knowledge they need when making a decision on a Shelby they want to purchase or sell.”

Becker personally has performed evaluations for years and attended key collector car auctions for a small group of corporate clients like insurance companies and manufacturers. In late 2009, Stephen Becker provided an appraisal of 75 cars in the corporate and museum collection of Shelby American. The appraisals were done for Shelby’s insurance company, which requested current values of the extensive collection of significant cars. Other high profile corporate and celebrity clients have included the famous Shelby Parts & Restorations company, as well as leaders in the music and entertainment industry.


“Shelby cars are usually considered blue chip collectibles, but each must be carefully inspected and appraised to understand the true value,” noted Becker. “Not only is it important to ensure a car is a genuine Shelby, it’s critical to understand its history. The value difference between a survivor car with great provenance and a Shelby ‘rebuilt’ from a few major components left over from a wreck can be hundreds of thousands of dollars.”


Stephen’s knowledge and extensive library led to the creation of the Becker Certified Shelby Certification program. A proprietary 25 point inspection and exhaustive research provides the most thorough report on the market for genuine Shelby vehicles.


Over the past decade, Stephen Becker has been retained by key automotive groups, collectors and industry leaders to authenticate and value Shelby vehicles. This led to the creation of a program for individual collectors and enthusiasts. When completed, a client received a detailed report with a history of the vehicle, if available, and documentation to validate the value.


Since 1977, Stephen Becker has been regarded as a leading authority on 1960s era Shelby Cobras, GT350s and GT500s. The company’s expertise and in-depth knowledge have been tapped by clients to purchase, consign and restore original Shelby’s. SGB has represented clients around the world on stage when their Shelby’s crossed the block.


Founder Stephen Becker was one of the youngest people to ever be selected as a finalist for the Ernst & Young/Inc. Magazine “Entrepreneur of the Year” in the early 1990s.
