It seems like only yesterday that we were able to see the 2015 Ford Shelby GT350R on Jay Leno’s Garage, but in the time since then he has actually had two other Ford Mustang models on! Come take a look at the 1966 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 on Jay Leno’s Garage, as well as another classic Mustang that they recently had on the show.
1966 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 on Jay Leno’s Garage
The 1966 Shelby GT350-H was a big deal back in the day since it was part of a team up between Ford, Shelby American, and Hertz to create the “Rent-A-Racer” program that was incredibly unique at the time. The idea of being able to rent a race car like the Shelby was unheard of. But back then you could rent the 1966 Ford Shelby Mustang GT-350 for $17 a day, with an additional 17 cents per mile. Today you can rent the current Shelby from Hertz for $399 per day.
1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 on Jay Leno’s Garage
The 1966 Shelby Rent-A-Racer isn’t the only Mustang that has been on Jay Leno’s Garage recently, as we were also treated with an episode of the 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 — a very rare model. Jay has a ton of cars in his garage, but this isn’t one of them. They actually are taking a look at one that was restored by Anghel Restorations. Under its hood is a monstrous 7.0L V8 engine that was detuned to 375 horsepower, but it can easily be adapted to get somewhere between 500 and 600 horsepower.
