I saw a '69 advertised a little while back that said it was a Hertz car, so it would make sense that they did it for a number of years in a row. I don't remember if it had the "H" designation after the number, which may explain why they aren't as well known.

Arlie;
Talked to the folks at KAR and had Kevin go through his Shelby Registry and he found the following info on the 1968 GT350 Coupe/Notchback (Trans Am) 1.
Car was driven by Jerry Titus and competed in 6 races. They built a total of 8 Notchback cars, all used for Trans Am. This may be a question to pose to the Shelby Registry folks as far as any "H" designated cars. He couldn't find any listed but, it was kinda a down and dirty look through his book. He did say he knew they were produced for 66 and 67. I wasn't even aware that Shelby had ever built any Notchback/Coupe cars. Guess I learned something new. I'll have to file that one away for future reference.

He wasted no time listing the car and talking about the BJ auction last night to highlight the car. By the way it's the same color as the BJ car "Seafoam Green".

There were 1968 Shelby's for rent from Hertz. Most were 350 fastbacks, automatics and A/C. There was a 500KR convertible and 500 vert also sold to Hertz, but it is suspected that those were "executive" cars for a higher up Hertz executives.

also, the Hertz cars DID NOT have a designator of "H" on the side in 68 or 69. One has to go back to the orignal sales invoice, as to where the car went. Just lurking through, thought I could help out briefly. Saw the BJ auction with the CS and was wondering the reaction over here.
