Looks like photo on page 136 of Carroll Shelby: the Authorized Biography by Rinsey Mills.

Great picture. What are the cars behind Shelby? The car in the very right of the picture above Shelby's front tire looks like an MG grille? What is the convertible that is behind Shelby's wind shield (wind screen)?

Yes, on the far right is a MGA
I think the row of three cars in back of Shelby in the Maserati are Morris Minors, one convertible and two sedans (or I guess the English would call "saloons").  My dad's first new car was a Morris Minor convertible, see attached.
