We've all heard of the Shelby GT350-H before. In short. it was the Cobra-289-powered Ford Mustang. thoroughly massaged by Shelby and loaned to the public by Hertz. These "rent-a-racecars" were popular with SCCA racers. with some coming back with leftovers from roll cages and other tell-tale signs of abuse. But the forgotten sibling of the Shelby GT350-H is the Shelby Cougar XR7-G; something of a big brother to the small-displacement 289ci Ford. "The Hertz XR7-G came with the 325hp S-code 390ci GT engine. C6 automatic transmission. power front disc brakes. power steering. tilt steering. air conditioning. and an accessory gauge pack installed by Shelby. Another unique feature was the retractable sunroof installed by American Sunroof Company. The XR7-Gs were originally shipped with Rader wheels. manufactured by the Trans American Products Company.
