I am new to this forum having recently purchased a 1971 TR6 (built November 1970, USA delivery). I've owned and restored many Jaguars therefore I am familiar with British cars, but I am not familiar with a TR6.

On my car the commission number (VIN) is on a plate located on the driver's door post and also on the left side of the dash. What I find strange is that there is not a commission plate inside the engine compartment. There is an emissions plate located on the left inner fender (see photo) but this plate does not have a place to stamp any numbers. Should there be another plate with the commission number and where should it be located?

Nope- The plate on the door post is about it- along with the one on the windshield frame(left side, just above the dash) I think the 69 TR6 had the commission plate on the inner fender, where the emissions sticker is affixed- and if you reach up from below, you may just feel the two holes for it! (My 74 still had the holes, even though the comm plate location had been changed years before)

Like Scott said, early TR6s had vin plate on inner fender. All the rest were on drivers B post and w/s frame.

Thanks, that clears things up.

I got confused since on this online catalog a commission plate is being advertised as fitting a 1970 - 72 and located on the left front wheel arch. It is item FU2, part number CNP61.

I believe that while relocated, they still used the same plate design for those years.

By the way- That "online catalog" vendor is one of the BEST resources you can find! I LOVE The Roadster Factory (TRF)! My personal opinion, of course, but I know plenty of others here appreciate them as well... Just my $.02 on that

Welcome to the forum, BTW...

Ivan, I to have a 1971 TR6 built in November of 1970.
Like the previous comments, the comm.tag is on the drivers side door post.
I see your engine has the latter model intake manifold.
You might want to check the comm.number on your engine to see if its an original 71 or if just the head was changed out in order to fit that intake manifold.
