.... but am currently unable to find the number on the block to determine if the original engine was removed.

Thank you for some of the photos.  I am excited to see more.

About the VIN on the block.  The Hipo motors have the Ford VIN hand stamped in the side of the block just above where the oil pan mounts.  You might need a wire brush and some degreaser to find it.  If it doesn't have the Ford VIN, then most likely it is a replaced block.

This and the VIN will be just below the #1 spark plug (front passenger side to the block)
Nothing beats a classic!

Is that a 66 real-wood steering wheel?  Needs some help.

Yes, interior is not in great shape.  The outside has some rust, too.  It needs a full restoration.

Is this an original 4-speed car?

Wow! Sounds like you unfortunately, inherited a great find. I would be interested in this if and when you decide to sell. I am looking to restore and keep an early GT350 as a father son project. Please keep me in mind when you're ready. I have no problem in you getting an appraisal and determining an asking price from that.

Is it a Hertz car? It appears black in the picture, is that correct?

Few odd stickers and markings and no sign of Shelby VIN plate, interesting car and a lot of work but worth doing, nice black on black, is it a 4 speed car?
Merry Xmas

From the pictures it appears to be a 4 speed car (pedals and shifter) currently
