*** Information in English: A unique chance to acquire this immaculate ‘ 68 Ford Shelby Mustang GT 350 Hertz Fastback! This car is an authentic Hertz ‘Rent-a-Racer’ and one that was stabled for over 24 years, a real barn find with a completely unique history! The car came off the Metuchen, New Jersey production line on the 11th January 1968 and was delivered new to the Hertz Rental Company on the 16th March 1968. In May of ’69 Mr. Olthof Sr. and Mr. Clute (of Clute Ford, Elmira, New York) bought the car as a wedding present for daughter Linda and her husband Bob. At this time the Shelby had only clocked up 12,000 miles. When Mr. Olthof passed away in 1991, the Shelby was stabled in a barn near Pine City, New York. In 2015 the car saw the light of day and was sold to an acquaintance, who promptly fully restored and mechanically overhauled the car to its original condition. The car had driven 45,000 miles by now. Cost was certainly not a consideration in meticulously restoring this car to its former glory. This stunning Shelby is so well restored that one would be forgiven in thinking it had just left the factory! The bodywork is wonderful as are the finish and chrome details. The straight bodywork has perfectly fitting body panels. The unblemished underbody is as good as new. Finished in the original colour scheme of Highland Green with Black Decor Knitted Vinyl Bucket Seats. To complete the picture, this Shelby has retained its original matching numbers 302-4V 5.0 V8 engine with C-4 Select Shift automatic transmission. 1968 was the only year that a 5.0 engine was fitted and only 244 were originally supplied to Hertz! This Shelby comes with a fully documented history, including; the original booklets, many invoices, pictures of how the car was found in 2015 and, of course, a Deluxe Marti rapport, confirming every number and detail. This car has been featured in a number of magazines. This is a Hertz Rent-a Racer with a special history and provenance! There is only one like this around! Over 350 Classic and sportscars in stock.
