This table attempts to list the many prefix and suffix letters used on
Triumph cars and units. The information is based upon information from
many Triumph parts catalogues as well as contributions from individuals all
over the world to whom I am grateful.
There are still a few gaps and, probably, a few errors
in it so I would be grateful for any feedback from anyone with more accurate
information. I have not attempted to deal with the VIN numbers that took
over from this system in 1980.
Please send any additions or ammendments to
See also Francois Demonts tables for Herald, Vitesse, Spitfire and GT6
For related Standard models see the Standard Motor Club's tables for prewar and postwar models.
N.B. Except where shown otherwise, engine numbers normally have the suffix 'HE' for high compression or 'LE' for low compression.
