I'm sure that your car is one of the 22 Shriner's of 1961: it has the same "SO" than RL Brezout and , as all Shriner's, it's one of the first
model year. The other "number" (8519) is surely the dealer order number, very very closed to than of M. Brezout (8517). So it's 99,9 % sure that it's the same dealer (Briley Motor of Omaha).
Note also that SO means "Special order" and not "shipping order". I've a copy of the documents that send the CHF to M.
Brezout and they write: SO (Special order). Sure that Shriner's were "special order" ! The "sequence date" of Brezout's car is 10/03 (3 october)
The Brezout Shriner car has these numbers below the ABCDE ... line of the data plate: 1685735 3 61 1 8 . I think
you'll find the same as all Shriner's were identical.
