Now that Hertz is selling off some of their 2016 GTH rental cars, along with some Hertz executives selling their personal non-rental GTH cars, there's probably no better time than now for some official 2016 Shelby GTH build numbers. So here we go:
172 Total number of cars badged as Shelby GTH cars. 171 production cars, 1 concept car.
156 Total number of naturally aspirated, automatic transmission cars. Majority of them were rental cars, some were not. The non-rented cars were sold to Hertz franchise owners as a personal car. One car, the concept car 16H0001C, was sold at Barrett-Jackson to benefit the Shelby Foundation.
16 Total number of supercharged, manual transmission cars. These are referred to as executive cars and were never placed into the Hertz rental fleet.
Because some of the ex-rental cars are already being owner modified with superchargers and manual transmissions the Shelby American Registry is going to break tradition and publicly post significant 2016 GTH CSM numbers below in the hope of deterring anyone from trying to misrepresent an owner modified ex-rental GTH as something it isn't.
CSM numbers 16H0001 to 16H0016 are the S/C, M/T, exec cars.
CSM number 16H0001C was the NYIAS "wall hanging" display car. Sold at Barrett-Jackson to benefit the Shelby Foundation.
CSM number 16H0171 was the Manhattan "unveil" car.
Hope these numbers help future 2016 GTH owners.
