1966 Shelby GT350H

The GT350H was a purpose-built special edition GT350 designed to be offered by the Hertz rental company as one of its fleet cars. The goal was to get potential buyers for the GT350 behind the wheel. Just over 1000 examples were built, with an unknown number of surviors. The Shelby-built Cobra 289 cubic-inch V8 car made 306 hp and 329 lb.-ft. In 1966 these were serious numbers, especially from a rental car.
These cars are highly desirable. How so? Hagerty suggests a concours example trends around $ 140k.
