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
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?
