Hertz Rent-A-Racer: 1985 Ford Mustang SVO

Many years ago Carroll Shelby partnered with Hertz Rent-A-Car to provide Shelby Mustangs for the rental market.  The cars were returned to Shelby and he sold them to the public for cheap because nobody wanted an ex-rental car.  Today, the Hertz GT350H is a high dollar collectible sought after by Shelby fans and command six figure prices from sites like luckily for cheapskates like you and me, there is a cheaper way to get into a Herztang.  Find this 1985 Ford Mustang SVO here on eBay offered for $24,990 or best offer, located in Rockville, MD. Tip from Zach Z.

  1. I've always loved the SVO. I almost bought one but sadly couldn't come up with the cash back then(about 8k if I recall correctly). It had the back wing sag pretty bad too.
