    It wasn't a class-it was a registration number.

    1796 is the driver #....or like this...E/G 1796.........
     
  4. All gas class designations had a G in them IE: A/G, A/GAS, AA/G, AA/GS, AA/GAS etc. depending on year etc.

    El could also be the track that the car ran at. At most tracks all the cars that have a 4 digit perm. # like your 1796 they usually had a 2 or 3 letter or number for their local track. For example here locally we have 411 Dragway and Knoxville Dragway. The 411 points cars had numbers such as 411/ 1796 and Knoxville had kx 1796.
    I hope this helps.

    The 1769 is the NHRA registration number. The 1 meant the car was in NHRA division 1 and the car number was 769. At least that's how my number read. 6744 Division 6 car #744. I have no idea what the el meant unless the e was for E and the l was actually a "/" and the G was missing so it should have looked like "E/G". Being an Anglia and if it had a small block (300 ci approximately) it would have fit into the E/G class.

    If the car was bracket raced, it might be ET with part of the letter missing.....
     
  11. I think the EL probably was for the track abbreviation where the car ran
