Indianapolis Motor Speedway
According to the son of a former field sales manager for Shelby (Northeast Region of the U.S.), the Carrera 45 Dato (shown immediately below) was is of two dozen that were commissioned for the 1968 New York Auto Show. The 68 Shelby Mustangs were introduced at that show. The Sales Manager picked up the watches from a Manhattan jeweler the day the show opened and the watches were given to Ford dealers and other VIPs at the show.
To Be Added
MG -- the British carmaker -- was a regular customer of Heuer in the late 1960s, and MG ordered Carreras for its dealers on several occasions. The "MG" logo and, in some instances, the name of a dealer's salesman or other employee, was added to a normal Carrera dial by a company in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The dial was removed from a stock Carrera, send to the company in Lancaster, and then returned to Heuer, for delivery upon the instruction of MG.
Chuck Maddox has done some research and determined that the "helmet" logo on this Carrera is for the Magazine "AutoWeek/Competition Press" from the 1960's and 1970's.
