Manufactures plates are different than what were assigned to regular vehicles owned by individuals. Pattern and plate lay out is different. On the Manufactures plates there were dozens or hundreds in some cases assigned to the company for their use. Difference in those on Calif plates is the smaller letters and numbers to the left of the MFG

Looks like was typing this just as Jeff was typing his, but he beat me to the posting.

I agree:

MFG plates were (legally) moved from car to car, like a Dealer plate.   The plate is "registered" to the manufacturer, not to any particular car. 

Which is why you will see magazine tests (even today)  with the same plate sequence on different cars. 

The 013 is the manufacturer number.  The little numbers on the left side of the plate are that particular plate's number.
Current:
Kirkham Cobra with 482-inch aluminum side-oiler
Formerly:
1968 GT500KR #2575 (1982-2022)
1970 Ranchero GT 429
1969 LTD Country Squire 429
1962 T-bird with 13k original miles
1957 T-bird E-model, dual fours, 3-speed stick

Yes, the 'WFJ 013' licence plate on #1338 is a standard California plate, not a Shelby American MFG plate.
It's lucky to have the 013 numbers and still neat to have the black plate with the car!

Difference in those on Calif plates is the smaller letters and numbers to the left of the MFG
Michigan manufacturer's plates are six digits with a small M in the center and Manufacturer at the bottom. Unfortunately, Historic plates are also six digits, so every so often I get a bill from the North Texas Tollway Authority for tolls. They send a picture of the manufacturers plate whose numbers match my '68, except no M. I send them a nice message that they have the wrong vehicle and after another message and a phone call they stop sending me bills. Until the next time this plate ignores the toll booth.

#0059 just appeared in a recent search. It has the same license plate from an old ad in 2008.

I'm not sure this green one hasn't been here before, maybe forum 1 ? '67 GT350/500 ? , Quebec, Canada.

Another one from Quebec, some assembly required !

"Thunder on the Mountain" car show in Tehachapi, CA

The caption noted the owner from Bishop, CA
(They also misnamed the car as a 1967 Shelby Cobra GT350. Besides the added 'Cobra' name we can see it's a GT500)
