It was the first Shelby I had ever driven ..... I remember.

 

That's what started all this madness.

This may not be 100% spot on but I think fairly close: Agree with Steve that it is cool that you remember. The GT-H started it for many would be owners and also helped kick started SAI again. IMO I have to say Amy Boylan & team did good with the program and then the SGTs. In 2006 Shelby stated "we did it in 1966 and we are doing it again". I think that's a fairly significant piece of Shelby history for the 2nd generation cars.

dh777 that's awesome. and an awesome pic as well. harald my first Shelby was an 07 gt 500. it didn't take me to long to then figure out that it wasn't about the big horse power for me but history.

 

so here I am with 3 gt-h cars. LOL some where along the way it could be called obsession as well. the stuff that I have tried to collect with these cars..... I still need a few things. jacket, book and signed hood along with much more I

You got the connection :) Thats what happened with me. Still would not mind getting a 1966 though.

I need to see video of that bidding on the '66. I can't believe it.

Doesn't seem to crazy to me? There are quite a few for sale out there right now for $130K plus for not very nice ones. It's not the record. There are some probably equally as nice for sale for $170K or less, so it is high, but not crazy for a Saturday night Barrett Jackson sale when people get stupid sometimes.

06H186 went for $33k; 06H201 for $37,400 and 3rd coupe (06H044?) for $39,050. The GT350H went for $220k! All including fees.

I am going to say not bad. Of course these are all low millage cars. How about the 07 manual trans car? The 220K for a GT-350 H, wow.

Had it not been for the GTH there would have been no SGT or anything else! SAI would have continued to build Cobras etc. When the GTH came out Ford dealers were all up about the fact they had nothing to sell to a renter after. There was a BIG hole between the GT and the GT500 and Ford and Shelby saw an opportunity to do something together modeled after the 60's arrangement rather than the Ford factory arrangement of the GT500. The success of the SGT lead to other opportunities and the rest is history.

Great video. I have not seen that one before. It just reaffirms my post. Thanks for sharing. Maybe 30 years from now this will have a significant impact on the value of these cars for those who continue to own them. As some collector magazines state, one of many factors for car value is the impact it had on the automotive world.

Yep....The Hertz car is so much more significant than most realize. I would dare say that they are the most historically significant Shelby automobile built since the mid 60s. The initial investors/collectors who paid through the nose for these when they came to public auction knew..... I've been PLEASANTLY surprised that the prices for these have come down to an affordable level as of late, otherwise I would never have been able to get one. These are now collectible cars that you can enjoy and DRIVE. Keep driving them or they will not be seen/admired, and nobody will continue to care as the next generation comes into cars.
