While Ford's PR guys and gals maintain strict radio silence on the issue, AutoWeek claims that the highly-anticipated throwback Mustang that Ford is preparing for the next month's New York Auto Show will be none other than a reincarnation of the Shelby GT350H-- complete with a gold-on-black paint job. The original vehicle, the 1966 Shelby GT350H, was a higher-performance Mustang developed especially for rental company Hertz (thus the "H" designation), and was allegedly used by its renters for racing. According to AutoWeek, the company only built 999 of the vehicle and fit it with a 289-cid, 306-hp V8 engine. Even with Hertz more-or-less out of the picture, might Ford decide to offer this up for sale as well?
