Hi, Does anyone know what these 3 numbers are for (761), I found then behind the coil on the bulkhead.
Thanks, Chris

Yes the assembly line build number, you should come across it again on different components,  used to be referred as a matching numbers car, until the auction houses diluted this down just to mean original engine and gearbox.

I am not sure whether the Touring production records still exist but if they do, this number will have been used as a build number.
However I sat next to one of the then new owners of Touring at a dinner some years ago and I am fairly sure he told me that they had been destroyed.
It might be worth contacting them though?

Yes, I was communicating with Giovanni Anderloni (son of Carlo Felice "Cici" Bianchi Anderloni) recently when he mentioned that when Touring was bought (out of administration?) the new owner, who had promised pre-purchase to keep all records, started burning them in the factory yard, within days of taking ownership. Luckily an ex-employee was walking past, saw the smoke and intervened or told Giovanni's father who stopped the burning. So a lot of records where lost, but not all. Chris
