Plenty of cool cars
have rolled across the auction block recently, but the opportunity to own Carroll Shelby’s 1966 Shelby GT350H Fastback kinda tops them all. That’s right, this ride—Shelby number 1822, 1 of 999 produced, 289/306 HP V-8 engine—was previously owned by the one and only Carroll Shelby with title to prove ownership. Originally delivered to Hertz in Chicago as part of the “Rent a Racer” program, the vehicle with the C6 3-speed automatic transmission, 4-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust is in exceptionally good condition. We won’t know how much it sells for until it rolls across the block this week at the Mecum auction in Dallas, but we’re willing to bet it’s going to be a lot more than the $17 a day and $0.17 a mile it used to be rented for.
