 Prefix-Suffix Table  


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 Keith Bennett
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.

completed Fisher & Ludlow bodies)

This model was badged as a Triumph 10 for the US market but was known as the
Standard 10 elsewhere. See  the Standard Motor Club's table for these models.
