General discription

New ! in our showroom: 


1966 Shelby GT350 H ( Hertz ) tribute, completely restored and rebuild !


This absolutely gorgeous looking 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback, and its an original factory A code performance V8 car, build all new in the style like a Shelby Hertz GT350 car. A car that is famous all around the world for the fact that these Shelby GT cars were delivered To Hertz as a rent a race car project. Real Hertz cars cost a small fortune nowadays, but this car, being a true A code Fastback and an original factory Raven blacker with factory black interior! Is the next best thing if you just love the looks and style of these rare Shelby Hertz cars. It costs however way less ( real once can run into 200k+ easy) and its maybe even more fun to own and enjoy as it can really be used and driven.

The car you see here was built from scratch and has a fantastic piano style new Black paint with the Hertz style gold Shelby race stripes painted on as well. Its also equipped with the correct Shelby GT Hood, Side Scoops, grill, and all other details that a Hertz Shelby needs to have. The driveline of this car consists out of a fully rebuilt 351 Cleveland V8 with well over 375 HP, as were the original Hertz cars only came with a smaller 290hp 289cui V8. From the outside, however, the small blocks all look similar and it really needs a trained eye to tell the difference. 

The Cleveland 351 Cui V8 Is one of Fords best-kept secrets and might well be the strongest and best SB Ford ever developed. Its the same engine that was used in there Mach 1 models ( M code cars) and was also used in the Tomaso Pantera sports cars. The Cleveland was build much stronger than for instance the 351 Windsor and was build on a completely different platform. So the engine in this car is one of the best Ford ever produced. 

And if that wasn't enough, the car also comes with the FMX automatic trans instead of a much weaker C4 trans that the original Hertz cars had. But yet again, from the outside, they look almost identical. So the complete drivetrain of this car is not only as new and completely rebuild, but is also much stronger and faster than the original car. No costs were spared and more than 25k euro was invested in the driveline alone. 


This car has fantastic looks and drives amazing. Everything here is to rebuild and restored, with all new disc brakes, brake lines, all new interior and exterior components, new driveline front to back (only 200 miles driven since finished) new electrics, al new chrome, lights, glass, trim and a very clean and solid rust free body was the base before the build started. The underside of the car is super solid, clean and correct. 


The car comes with shelby/Eleanor style alu wheels with new tires, but we can also sell the car with its original style chrome magnum 500 wheels to make it look even more exact to the factory Hertz cars, but thats a personal choice. Besides that, this baby is ready to rock! It is very correct and you almost won't be able to tell the difference between this car and a 200.000+ costing original, and this car is way more fun and faster than the original cars ever were and you wont have to be so extreme careful with it posed to an original high-end original car. More than 50k euro was spent in its build alone ( thats without the value of the real A code fastback ) and all the parts used are quality products and correct.

Again its a real performance A code V8 fastback, Original factory Raven black car, with a factory black interior and that makes this tribute one of the best around. No cost was spared to get this car in fantastic condition.

For this money, you can't even begin to build one. And please don't confuse this car with just any nice looking black paint and gold striped tribute car out there on the market today asthis car is a completely restored and performance upgraded car . And although we wont state here that its a concours winning car, as that alone takes 100k investments or more, but its for sure a car that will Winn awards on any car show and the respect of your fellow car enthousiasts.


With prices of worn out rusty old 6 cylinder fastbacks starting at around 30/35k alone these day's, this car is just priced to sell! So don't wait too long as we estimate it will be sold soon. If you want a quality car, that's ready to be enjoyed for many more years to come that also has some additional power and an upgraded driveline for better comfort, this must be your new car !.

  • Guide: Matching numbers

    In the collector car hobby, most investment-minded buyers are acutely interested in a specific car’s history. One of the main aspects of that history is an original or, as most people state it, numbers-matching drivetrain. At pedaltothemetal muscecars we feature a plethora of original and numbers-matching classics including ‘Cudas, Road Runners, Chevelles, Camaros, Corvettes and Trans Ams. And, if a potential buyer knows how to properly identify and interpret certain manufacturing codes, they can further validate their car’s history, or on request we can provide it.

  • Vehicle claims and descriptions

    Vehicle/product descriptions, representations and claims on or offline are based on what can be seen by the human eye, documentation, previous professional experience, opinion, factory claims, and, or, information passed on to us by previous owners or restorers. It's to the best of our knowledge that everything we advertise has all indications of being that claim. Please inquire as to what documentation we have on the vehicle you are purchasing or feel free to ask any additional questions you might have, But by no means you can accept our answers as facts as the are our interpretation and might not match yours. It is with integrity and honesty that we describe our cars, but they are in fact, up to 50 years old, may have had many previous owners, modifications or alterations that are unknown to the us, so it's not possible to verify everything about every car in detail. Thereby the stated conditions or details of a car can never ever be taken as a fact. As always we welcome personal inspections and or independent appraisers prior to a sale. Incase we speak of "Original" or "Matching numbers" it means that we asume that to be the case, but with old classic cars thats by no means a guarantee. So please feel free to verify that in person or with a third party.

    Pttm goes a step further than almost every other seller(s), as we also do a full inspection of our vehicles prior to having them for sale in our showroom and make repairs improvements if needed so. And when a vehicle/product is sold we give it a full service check before you receive it !
