Thanks to help from many SAAC forum members we have more to update on the MFG plates in Europe.
I have also tweaked the list to help sort by year and Shelby model.
A few unknowns have been filled in for the FIA Cobras in 1964.

Excellent that we all found together more plates and plates for the List,
that is what a Forum should be,

It is my belief that the Daytona Coupe pictured at Reims in '65 using the IM 013 plate was CSX 2300 rather than 2299.

I never could understand why they always did the Car Comparison Tests like this one.  The Cobra is a Convertible and the Vette is a Coupe.  They should have used a Vette Convertible.

^^^ They might not have been able to get a convertible Vette at the same time.   It's not as simple as it seems. 

I've been through the same thing a hundred times in all the years I worked in the car magazine biz.  Until you get to the MT, CD R&T level (in the old days, anyway) it can be difficult to schedule a comparison test. The more cars in the test, the tougher it is.

You're not just working to hit your deadline date, but also to fit in the car company's schedule for its test cars.

And, occasionally, you'll get the call (sometimes the day before the car was supposed to be ready) that the last magazine guy damaged it and it won't be ready.

So, as an editor, you then have to make the hard decision:

1. Go ahead with the coupe that they do have to loan you. So now it's a convertible vs coupe article.

2. Wait for an indeterminate time period to do the article the way you originally envisioned it (never a good idea, for a lot of publishing reasons.)

3. Just do a single car test.

For those of you following along...
Here is a 1969 Shelby GT500 with a California MFG plate '6J MFG 014'
The photos were taken for 'Sports Car Graphic' by the photographer Gerry Stiles.

These might have been taken at the Shelby American office building at 8405 Pershing Drive, Playa Del Rey, CA.
They moved some offices there after LAX closed in August 1967

You can search the Petersen Archives for more 1969 Shelby photos.
