    I have just bought a 2016 Hertz GTH and would like to get this packet with the mouse pad and wheel caps etc, I am having a problem signing in maybe as I had a 2007 Shelby GT. I would also like to know where to find a poster that's frameable quality. Oh I also had a problem with stripes being all screwed up as someone at Hertz pressure washed them, If you can believe anyone would do that. Hertz has been great and are buying  me a new set for me to install ($861.00). But I paid what they wanted, 1st car I have bought without seeing it. I live in Florida and the car was in California. These cars are getting almost impossible to find. Saw a guy in Orlando wants $82.5000. 57 miles never rented? Vantage motors. Well any help getting any of this will be great as I love this car. I sold my 2017 Dodge Challenger T/A plus to get it. What a difference.

    Welcome to the group Process45, I assume SAI-Steven has provided the info you need from Hertz by now. There is only one set for each car, so anyone buying second-hand after Hertz needs to be sure original documentation is included.

    The stripes are available from Shelby parts in individual sections, I was required to supply proof of ownership, and photos of damaged stripes. Good for you to get replacements included. Depending on your situation as far as finances and originality, a guy might consider investing in a painted stripe.

    Be very protective of any GTH emblems, last I talked to parts, spares and replacements are not available.

    Good luck on the poster. Chris Ruby in Vegas could set you up with a supercharger and widebody mod. A photo of the finished job in the winners circle would make a fantastic poster!

    Why not use what the owner's manual recommends?  With all the stories about oil consumption on the 350s I'd stay with Ford products. 

    Rings need to seat, other parts need to work harden. I'm an old mechanic that only knows what you can read in a web search on these engines. I say use oil that is no slicker than Ford installed, get the rings seated or you will use oil. I use full synthetic after 20k miles.

    Leave the Fram and other low quality filers for use on push mowers.

  3. Call Chris Ruby at Shelby in Vegas.

    We went through Gaudin Ford in Vegas, Steve was good to work with. Check their website, if they don't have a good candidate they should be able to dealer trade one you've located. We live in Washington which is a libtard green emissions state and buying from Vegas saved shipping the car to them. (If you buy a built SS here it needs to have the engine mods done after purchase.)

    BTW, good choice, we really like the front end, and overall of the 17'. Get on it, maybe we could see it on a lift during the March Bash.

  4. To chime in, 0021 looked like a solid car. I did not identify any major repairs, however all of the stripes looked to be re-applied post Shelby. I saw edges that were rolling up. The interior seemed in very good shape, showing a reasonable 20600 miles. I think a good detail, and reasonable investment will bring this one into it's correct value range.

    If you are a Shelby guy that purchased this one, have Chris Ruby at Shelby American pick the car up and make a WIDE BODY package out of it!?





  5. Pacific Cascade Mustang Club hosted a great, ever-growing show last weekend! What's even better are the people you meet when you make yourself available. A man and his son walked up to admire our GT-H, Judd and Joshua. They had rented CSM 16H0149 out of LAX and had photos there and on Mulholland drive. If 0149 is your car, contact me and I will forward those pics. I would like to post them here but I cannot figure how to size them to 9.77MB.

    it is a car that started as a special place in Shelby history 50 years ago! Very nice! Brent

    I was wearing a black t-shirt with gold "GT 350 H" on it. I was asked if I owned one. I smiled and replied, no, it's a tribute just like my car. Guess where I pointed.?

    Should have come in first place! How did you get the radiator cover autographed? Nice touch.


    Like the autograph, huh? It's a sweet touch. The Shelby foundation has an autopen set up to sign most anything flat. They ask for a $50. donation and shipping, a young lady named Rafella handles it and was super! That cover is so slick the ink is scuffing so I'm planning to clear coat it.

    Thanks for the first place sentiment, but I am amazed that a three year old, non supercharged, car runs right there with some really nice pampered Shelby examples. If you have one, you are running with the big dogs! 

  8. We have been to multiple shows with our new 14k mile GT-H this summer. Our pet has won two 2nd, and one 3rd place spot so far, with all Shelbys in one class. We are parked next to gorgeous original and tastefully dressed up Shelby Mustangs in large numbers. People's choice is our salvation, and I have decided in our case, 2nd is not first looser, but something of a first for the rode hard and put away wet category. Yes the original interior is about perfect, and we have repaired some paint issues from rental duty and also from purchase transport, but it is nowhere near showroom paint.

    I guess my point is we have standout cars that everyone loves!

    I'm looking at coverking car covers for a 2016 GT-H. The selections for mustangs are GT, GT Premium, GT-350, etc. Would the GT Premium be the closest in body style for the GT-H?



    Congrats on your purchase of the best looking Shelby to date!

    I'm sure there will be plenty of room in a cover for a Mustang GT. And no antenna to deal with!

    I bought a black Xtrashield, with mirror pockets, $69.95 Amazon Prime. Good for in the garage.

    First things first.  The carbon looks outstanding on the GT-H and after dealing with those 2 ton hoods, the struts were a great move!

    Second, you're right, while you were dancing, I was in the parking lot getting up the nerve.  If I don't find it, so be it.



    Good eye my friend, the struts were a must as there is no place for the prop rod now. I know there is another asking for info, and I will post when the install is complete.

    Good hunting.

    In the spirit of sharing information, I looked at 57 this weekend and it let me down.  

    Broken side scoop, a significant dent above the right rear quarter, no floor mats, missing the piece over the radiator, and a salesman that claimed 140 made.

    I have an original radiator cover, I will part with for an excellent Shelby price.;-) We invested in carbon fiber pieces that really finished out the under hood!

    Again, early buyers paid a premium price for nicer cars. What's left are for the boys that had to have one last smoke before going into the dance. Ours had issues, the dealer replaced the blades, swapped on a better air splitter, and located new floor mats.

    They've all been driven like they were rented, and the last of them kicked out the back door in the morning.

    I just procured #125 from Don Miller at Vantage Sportscars in Orlando.  I can't speak highly enough about this guy and the entire experience with him.  He really knows the Hertz cars.  He has sold more than 30 of them.  He told me there has been a flurry of activity in the last two weeks.  Hertz has only about 15 left and they are ALL on the West Coast.   He still has two expensive cars that have not been rented and one extremely expensive executive car.  

    I am pretty darned excited.  Have not seen one in person....

    Good job! You will love it! We hadn't sat in anything newer than the wifes 2013 v6 premium when we bought ours from Costa Mesa Cal.

    And no one just walks past this Shelby, Mustang show, hot rod show, or the gas station!

    Looking for a drivers side headlight in very good condition or new as well as a GTH front splitter for my 16 GTH. Let me know what you have. Thanks

    Try car-part.com this is a wrecking yard search site.

    My body shop was able to fill some some deep scuffs with resin, then cleared the whole splitter. The thing looks perfect. Any damage to the fiber will not be fixable. Shelby parts still sells them new at a bargain price.
