Triumph 2000 Commission Number

Peter Truman

Recommended Posts

A deceased friend has a 2000Mk2 Estate here in Australia, the body has been bare metal resprayed and it's resplendent BUT needs re-assembling.

I'm trying to sell it for the widow and want to understand what the Commission Number ME39860SCO means;

  • Prefix ME is a 2000Mk2, correct
  • Suffix SCO??, I assume the O means overdrive, but SC?

All the parts are there and many refurbished, its a manual overdrive model.

Anyone want to ship it back to the UK???

Can anyone advise what SCO indicates?

The "SC" indicates that the car is a station wagon / estate car. I always fancied it as "saloon conversion"! I'm not sure that's accurate, but part-completed saloon bodies were, in fact, converted by an outside concern (Carbodies? can't remember offhand and don't have my books handy) into estates.

Sending saloons to outside convertors to produce Estates, was not unknown, Ford sent all the early (50`s on) to Farnham, for example. Although I THINK Morris produced theirs "In House"?. As probably the later Farina Estates too.
