I don't know if this will help you, but the VTR WWW pages
on the Italia (by VTR Italia Vehicle Consultant, Jamie Palmer)
list that only 297 TR-3A/B chassis were delivered to Italy
to be made into Italias.
Quoting from http://www.vtr.org/Italia/Italia-production.html:
At best, determining commission numbers and production
figures of Italias is a guessing game. Here are the facts
we do know:
There were 297 TR-3A/B chassis delivered to Italy to be
made into Italias.
One of the first chassis numbers is TS51639LCO - this is
the vehicle Standard-Triumph tested in early 1960.
The last 30 cars were made on TSF501 through TSF530,
the last 30 TR-3B first series chassis.
All cars had both the TR-3A/B commission plate and a
"Vignale number"; they were NOT kept in chassis order
Numerous changes were made car-to-car!

service over the weekend -- apparently maintenance personnel
bumped the power strip in my office, and the machine never
