@ Baube:
Said to be a 1967 Fastback in the episode, but you're right, it's a 1965-66 model, due both to the tail lamps and to the shape of the fastback. And the rear quarter windows make it more precisely a 1966 Shelby GT 350.
Additional picture "betray" one of the 1001 vehicles made for Hertz, the GT 350Hs (or a replica of one of them):

The story of these cars is just amazing:
shnack.com wrote Hertz corporation ordered 1,001 of the G.T. 350s to offer as rentals. The side stripes read "G.T. 350H", but the cars became know as "Rent-a-Racers." Some cunning Mustang owners would rent the Shelbys, swap the motor with the motor in their Mustangs, and return them to Hertz. At $17 per day and 17 cents per mile, it was a good bargain for a Shelby engine. It was "uncool" to own a former rental car, so many of the cars were debadged after they were decommissioned. Thanks to the Shelby American Automobile Association, however, many of these cars have been found. More than 800 were made in black, and the other 200 or so were divided between red, green, blue, and white. Only the black models and a few white ones had stripes on the hood, but many owners added them to the other cars during restoration.
