There seems to be renewed interest in a chart that I devised
25+ years ago based on specific information that I had privy to.
It is certainly not 100% accurate, but I've seldom been off by more than 3 days.
I check my information by asking fellow TR3 owners to advise me of the results of their
British Heritage Build Certificate. (for which they pay big $$) I am right on 48.5% of the time.
SO
Answer this post with your Commission number and name & I'll run it for you & post an answer.

If you purchase a Build Certificate in the future, please let me know how far off I was.

I don't have any dates newer than TS83572 , nor do I have anything older than TS8637.
I don't have any TR3B information
Sometimes I go as much as 10 days between visits to this Forum, so be patient
if you don't get an immediate answer.
Frank

John, I think yours would have been built around September 27, 1960 but wait for the expert to confirm.

October 1st, 1962.

I don't think you will be able to find original color without the certificate from the British Heritage Certificate.

Chuck,
My home-made chart shows TS37200 was built on 09 Oct 1958.
To be sure, get a copy of the build record.

I appreciate your time. THANKS! I am now in the process of restarting a stalled restoration. 22 years in between disassembly and rw assembly makes thing tough! But I'm making great progress!
I will guess it's "re-birthday" will be sometime next spring!
