And this car has most if not all matching numbers. This car had approximately 40,000 miles on it before the restoration and less than 1300 have been put on it since the restoration. This car has IRS=Independent Rear Suspension as well as Overdrive which was very innovative for the time and this model automobile This was a no-expense restoration project for the owner's 70th birthday. The car was to be a replacement for his Jaguar XK120, so every nut and bolt was removed, bead blasted, painted or replaced down to the smallest one. $30,000 was invested and documented so this car is ready to drive. TR4 PRODUCTION DATES & NUMBERS While the Title lists this car to be a 1968, it has been verified to be a 1967. We know this because Commission numbers for 1967 were CTC 64148 through CTC 75172. It was probably not titled until 1968 due to shipping time from England and the time in the showroom here in the US, which was a common occurrence. TR4's were numbered sequentially as they were built. The first TR4 (built July 18, 1961) had the commission number CT1 and the last TR4 (built Jan 6, 1965) had the commission number CT 40304. Present-day Triumph enthusiasts agree that the "model year" is the year in which the car was built - no matter what the license or title says. The reason that some cars show a later year on the title is because the car was not sold until a later time and was not titled by the dealer until it was sold. (Some importers also added another small plate (STC nn) for the year in which the car was sold/titled). COMMISSION, BODY AND ENGINE NUMBERS Each car had at least three important numbers The Commission Number (CT nnnnnn) - found on the left side of the engine compartment on a plate in front of the firewall. This plate also gives other information such as whether the car was left-hand drive (L after the number), whether Overdrive was fitted (O after the number), and states the gross laden weight in pounds. Beginning sometime in 1963, the commission plate also carried codes for paint and interior colors. The Body Number (nnnnnCT) - found in the engine compartment on the right side in front of the firewall. This plate is smaller than the commission number plate and contains only the body number. Since the bodies and chassis were built separately, the body and commission numbers will probably not match but are usually within a hundred or so of each other. The Engine Number (CTnnnnnE) - found on the left side of the cylinder block (near the coil). The engine number usually does not match the other numbers because some Triumph engines were built and then sold to Morgan and other car makers. Therefore, the sequence of engine numbers was interrupted and does not match the commission / body numbers.
