Title: 2021 MCACN Shelly Hertz Display
Post by: Steve McDonald Formally known as Mcdonas on September 16, 2020, 11:06:22 AM
In the world of muscle cars the MCACN show is the pinnacle of shows. I have been in contact with Bob Ashton about a display of Hertz cars for 2021.
First do you think there is enough interest ?
Second can we can enough cars to fill the display area
I would like to get one of each of the 66 colors, (black, white, green, red, and blue) plus at least one each of the 68-69 cars.
I have already gotten a few volunteers, a rare white and blue 66Hertz and a MCA and SAAC gold winning 1969 GT350
If you ever wanted to display your car at a show, this is the one !
If you have been to the MCACN show. Youíve probably seen the Studebaker and Nash Nutz displays, really cool cars but the Hertz Shelbyís are truly unique
So do you want to be a part of history ?
Send me your information and Iíll put it together and send to Bob Aston to see if we can make it work
Also looking for Hertz memorabilia (suit bag, drink glasses, signs, tote bags, etc) to display in a locked display case.

If you have contacted me I have tried to reply to all.
The 2021 MCACN Hertz Collection Invitational is a go, but I need you to sign up at the MCACN web site ASAP, they are over 400 car already registered and the cut out is about 550
If we donít get enough Hertz car signed up we lose the spot, Iíve had interest from a lot of people but if you have legit verified Hertz car this is the show to have it at. We have space for about 10-12 cars so sign up today at the MCACN site
It should be awesome. I have started collecting Hertz Memorabilia for the display case and it should have some really unique items but could always use more so if you have something youíd like displayed let me know

OK, it's official if you have a Hertz car and want to part of the 2021 Hertz Collection Invitational sign up now. The cutoff for cars attending is 550 and they are over 400 registrations already. This show will be a complete sellout. If we don't get enough registrations the space will go to others, so sign up now

Post by: propayne on January 01, 2021, 12:46:13 PM
Hey there Royce -

Steve reached out to me several months ago about some of my father-in-law's Hertz items I had for sale. We of course got to talking about Hertz Gs so that is when I reached out to you and Gavin and Phil about a unique Hertz G that hadn't been on display at MCACN yet.

That is actually when you told me about Eric's G that was a show unit and the earliest one known to exist.

So I have gotten Eric and Steve together on that and hopefully they can work something out.

Also, I provided Steve with some nice, color copies made from my original Hertz counter brochure that you posted.

Does anyone have a definitive list as to what cars could be rented from Hertz during these 'golden years'?  Are there any forgotten sports cars that might be sitting under peoples noses without them even knowing?

Title: Re: 2021 MCACN Shelly Hertz Display
Post by: Steve McDonald Formally known as Mcdonas on January 01, 2021, 11:15:22 PM
This is what Iíve found so far for the 60ís
1963 Spilt Window Corvette all white with red interiors, powerglide with Sji racks and snow tires, one sold at B/J last year
1966 Shelby GT350H, sold in the following Combinations Black/Gold, Green/Gold, Blue/Gold, Red/Gold, White/Gold and apparently 18 White/Blue, most automatics, approx 85 were 4 Speeds
1968 GT350ís, various colors, no outside identifiers such as stripe
1969 GT350ís various colors, no outside identification such as stripes
1968 Cougar XR7/G, most if not all had 390ís with automatics, factory A/C and factory Sunroof
These make us the majority of the cars from the 60ís, they also had Hertz Indy Pace car Mustangs in the 1994
They reintroduced the black/gold Hertz cars in the 2006 and Iíve seen a Penske Hertz black and gold later model Mustang
They had late model shelbys and corvette models in their recent adrenaline collection
Maybe more that Iím not aware of

The Cougar Eliminators were also offered as a part of the Hertz Sports Car Club in 1969 (first year for the Eliminator) and 1970.

Interestingly, the Hertz Eliminators received factory sunroofs (like the Hertz XR7-Gs). That was the only way you could get a factory sunroof on an Eliminator and without a vinyl roof.

Regular production Eliminators could not be ordered with a sunroof and you couldn't order a sunroof on any Cougar from the dealer without the vinyl top.

Lots of great information in the book "Spoilers hold it down. Nothing holds it back. The 1969 & 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator" by Don Skinner.

FYI all the Hertz XR7-G's were 390 powered. The first batch of show cars were X code 390-2V automatic C6 equipped. All 188 of the production versions used to fill the Hertz order were identical in terms of options. All were 390GT engines with C6 transmission, power steering, tilt away, AC, AM Radio and power disc / drum brakes. All were non - metallic exterior colors at the request of Hertz. 

Highland Green with dark red (maroon???) interior is not one of the XR7-G color combinations produced either Hertz or non - Hertz. That would have been pretty ugly!

The closest I can find is a red XR7-G with dark blue interior and white vinyl top. Patriotic maybe?

Show is filling up quickly here's what Bob Ashton recently posted on MCACN Facebook
We have blown by the 450 cars registered mark at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show, way ahead of schedule, leaving us with fewer than 100 remaining car spots. There is plenty of excitement building up, and tomorrow the state of Illinois enters the 5th (final!) stage of the Ignite Illinois reopening plan. Whew!"

I canít thank everyone enough to those who displayed their cars and others who helped me locate stuff for the show. Hopefully the ďHertz Goodie BagĒ was at least a little payback for all of your efforts and hardwork
Met some many people over that few days that would be impossible to name all of the names who thanked us for the display

A wash and a wax then a 20 mile drive over with the redhead.  Easy as pie.  Leaving was easy too.  The weather was ideal.  No rain, no freezing rain and no snow.  Just moderate temperatures driving there and driving back tonight. And...the headlights did not flicker off.  Thanks Steve, good seeing you again.  And same for Jim.

Jim Wicks, thank you for answering a couple questions I had on your white H.

Lowell, nice to meet you and put a face to a name.

And Tony S. it was great to see an old CO region member.

The added bonus were the other Shelby products on display, S003, 6S933, a beautiful 67 350, the Allen Mann GT and the later 69-70 GT500's.

This was my third time attending and once again I left on Muscle Car overload...definitely a show that is worth attending.

Thanks for posting the pictures, the cars look fantastic and the display case has a ton of cool stuff.

Steve, I am sure this was a lot of time and organization on your part but congratulations, from the pictures your hard work really paid off with a fantastic display showing a legendary slice of Shelby American history. Well done!
Jeff

Yes - thanks to Steve, deathsled, Jim W and Terry (TOBKOB)`for a great display of Shelbys. Also 003 and the 509mi 69 GT500. Wow.

But ... my favorite was the Lawman B9. Marcus did such a fantastic job with this car. Only thing missing was Goldberg himself.

My first time. If you've never been - best muscle car show in the world. Put it on your bucket list.

Yes the 509 mile car was incredible. I met the owner Phil and we talked about the car. He then let me take up close pics which I did of the engine bay and a few other things ESPECIALLY the under hood blackout. WOW were they ever sloppy doing that when new. Pretty cool. My only regret is that I didn't stop by later in the day to take MORE pics. Phil was more than gracious letting up close to the car. Gary

Phils car was at our  1970 shelby 50th anniv fall classic show here in French Lick IN. last year.  We had the most 70 shelbys here in 1 place since 1970 about 25 total and many 1970 boss cars for 50 anniv of the boss mustangs also.  Phil called me years ago when he bought the car and i been helping him with the car and been to his place in NY twice in last few years so he could bring car out for its 50th anniv showing.  There is a great story about this cars past and shortly there will be a feature story with photos coming out in magazines. This rare  70 drag pack is optioned exactly the same as my vert except for it being a fastback and we should have taken photos last year at our show when they were both there but the cars were inside and outside and i wanted to get a group photo of all the 70 shelbys together but it didnt work out as some people left with there cars early so it didnt happen. Rumor has it that ford carlisle will have shelbys a feature car next year so phils car will be there .

One of the first things Phil said was that when he bought the car Ed Meyer flew out to see it. Then I said to myself ,OK, what is special about this car. Mind you I came up from the back of the car and didn't know it was a DP car nor the mileage until Phil told me the whole story. Just an incredible car. 3 orange 69-70s at MCACN. The only ones there. Phils. One in the CJ display and one in the Hertz display. Gary

  My take on it all:
  1) right off on the lobby escalator and there it is, the Alan Mann #16 GT 40.  I'm not even in the show yet.
  2) First steps into the show and the Lawman Mach I is there on display.
  3) Not much farther into the show and the 65 GT350 #0003 is on display.  Cool.
  4) Just down the aisle in a survivor GT500 with about 509 miles on it. (in really great shape!)
  5) not far from that is the Cobra Jet Display with the same colors as the survivor GT 500 (orange)
  6) There was a 67 GT 350 there, hubcap car, #2213.  Very nice.
  7) next to the 67 was a 66 GT 350, that too very nice, Has been hitting AACA shows.  The owner has had it 2 years now.
  8) Noticed Ed Meyer looking a 69/70 black Mustang fastback over with the owner.  It was a standard Mustang but had a 428 under the hood.  Rare.
  9) Ran into the American Speed Festival table- Featured make will be the cars of Shelby (check out "events" elsewhere.
  10) Saw the Hertz Display.  Had a nice long chat with Steve about his car, the forum, the AACA, stuff in general.  And when I walked up, Steve was entertaining a fellow from France (Christopher) who flew in from France to attend this show.  Looked over Steve's Hertz memorial stuff - all cool stuff.
  11) That Cougar also had come equipped with an ASC sunroof.  Really rare.
  12) The orange 69 GT 350 was also a Hertz rental.  The story: Bought by the caretaker's Dad in 1971 when Hertz sold the car off, BUT, his dad was not old enough to sign for the car so his grandfather was technically the first owner (besides Hertz).  So, the car has been through 3 generations in the same family.
  13) There was a white Boss 429 on the next aisle from the Hertz display.  It was "for sale".  Looked like a survivor car.  Sorry, no price listed.
  14) Had a long chit-chat with the owner of a yellow/black vinyl roofed 70 Superbee.  In 1970 my first job out of high school was doing dealer prep at Chrysler's Chicago dealer prep plant.  About 130 Chicago area Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth dealers had their cars prepper there (but NOT Mr.Norm's).  In the first week of August 1970, 10 exactly alike  70 Dodge Superbees, yellow, black vinyl roofed 440 six-pack/automatic cars showed up the same two days.  This car might have been one of them
