Attached is a list of all the known Shelby American cars spotted with the MFG plates.

1R MFG 013 GT40P109?



98SVT - was 06GT:
Anyone know if Hi Performance Motors had dealer plates - or did they use SA MFG plates?
Shelby's Ford dealership in Lake Tahoe would have had dealer plates for their demo cars.

deathsled:
Looks like they did.

Excellent find on the '1R' plate. GT109 is correct...Le Mans 65 was it's only race according to my notes.
(update list with blue italic text)

I'l have to keep looking for the car that goes with '1L'
