Original Shelby GT350 Hertz Race Car in Action

The combination of fascinating design, great performance, and of course the opportunity for regular people to rent one of these on Friday and take it to the race track during the weekend made the 1966 Shelby GT350-H legendary from day one. Executives of Shelby American and Hertz Corporation made a deal back in 1965 and 1,000 Shelby Mustangs became part of the “Rent a Racer” program.

I’m not sure how many of the original 1966 Shelby GT350-H cars are still in existence, but the American race car driver Tommy Drissi has owned one for almost 20 years now and he drives it like it was meant to be driven. The sound of this tire-shredding classic Mustang race car is just awesome, so get yourself comfortable, play the AutotopiaLA video and enjoy the ride.
