Suddenly dawned on me that the 2nd number is most probably a date stamp so when re-ordered by date  2 cars stand out as curiosities ie. the red duplicate No. 0001 and No. 0004 which has an "out of order" build date (which TBH I have doubts about anyway).  I'm also a bit dubious about No. 039 not just because the number is only 3 digits but it is missing the factory designation letter and generally the VIN plate just seems a bit too DIY compared with others.  

The letter before the date eg. "S" before 9810 in "SW200-0008 S9810" indicates which factory of the 5 factories made the car ie. (F)ukagawa, (O)gikubo, (S)hibaura, (T)ama or , (M)orooka factory.  All the factories are in Tokyo, capital city of Japan except Morooka which is in in Kanagawa.

According to TRD for first 2 years, they made 36 cars which were given a VIN plate then some customers asked them to convert their car and VIN plate was given to them too. However, there is no record after the production of 36 cars so they are not sure how many cars are existing.

Hopefully as more are tracked down any mysteries will be solved! :-)
