The commission number, and the last number (which is the body number), 
indicate a fairly early production Spitfire 4. The engine number (BTW, 
that is probably "HE" for the last two letters, not "ME"), indicates a 
somewhat later, but still correct engine, perhaps mid- to late 1964 
Spitfire 4.

Please tell us (me, anyway!) more about the car. How original is it? 
What sort of condition? What do you plan/need to do to it?
