This is an interesting rare car that I never heard of until I got a phone call one night just before I was heading out to look at a 1970 Panther Pink Dodge Challenger Convertible project. This car was designed at the request of Hertz with the intension of producing 200 of them for renting as part of their Rent-A-Racer program. In the end 188 models were produced for Hertz and an additional 431 Non-Hertz models were produced for sale to the general public.
