Production Figures for the TR8
Production figures for TR8's have been debated for years and years - even factory figures vary - the figures I have given below are those that I believe to be the most accurate. As I complete my work on documenting the build records for these cars I will amend the figures below to reflect the real quantities built. Where the figures are marked (Fact) I have personally hand counted the records and documented them.
|1977 - 1978||Pre-Production TR8's||Speke||150|
|1978 -1979||TR8 FHC's||Canley||24|
|1978 -1979||TR8 DHC's||Canley||8|
|1979 - 1980||TR8's||Canley||2088|
|1980||TR8 DHC (UK Spec)||Canley||2|
|1981||TR8 DHC (UK Spec)||Solihull||18|
Production of TR8's started at Speke (Liverpool) in 1977 - production was switched to Canley (Midlands) in 1978 due to labour problems. Canley production started in 1978 and was moved to Solihull in 1980 until production finished in October 1981.
Total Production approximately 2746 TR8's
The last TR8 by chassis number was 408533 this was built on the 12th of October - the last TR8 built by date however is 408405 which was built on the 20th of October 1981.
