1969 GT 350 Hertz (1 of 150)




Hertz once again tried renting sports cars to the public with their 'Rent-A-Racer' program. They order 150 1969 Shelby GT 350s with auto trans. Cost was $12 a day or $60 a week plus 11 cents a mile. Unlike the 1966 GT 350H, the 1969s had no special markings or emblems.

BTW, those are not the correct tires for a 1969 GT 350. 1969/1970 GT 350/500 used Goodyear Polyglas GT RWL tires, the same as came on the 1969 Boss 302 and Boss 429 for later production cars. Early to mid production cars used the 1968 large letter Goodyear E70x15 tires.

Did you know . . .

The 1969 Mustang had 11 wheel combinations available for all models:


1. The base stamped-steel wheel with the dog-dish hubcap.

2. Same wheel with the optional five-spoke wheel cover.

3. Mach 1 12-slot wheel, argent finish.

4. Same wheel with a GT hub cap when the GT Equipment was ordered.

5 & 6. Same as 3 and 4, only with optional chrome finish instead of argent.

7. Same 12-slot wheel with or without the GT hubcap, only painted body color, and we're not multiplying that by the Mustang's 16 standard exterior colors.

8. Basic stamped-steel wheel with optional wire wheel covers.

9. Boss 429 15x7 Magnum 500.

10. Boss 302 15x7 Magnum in argent.

11. Boss 302 15x7 Magnum 500 in optional chrome.

1965 L78 396 Promotional Photo




Full size L78 - you can tell by the dual snorkel air cleaner. The Corvette got an unsilenced air cleaner
