Default 411 series 4

Good day H, as far as I can tell from the chassis lists the first 411 series 4 was a demonstrator reg number then as always MPH 100.
The Reg number when sold was changed to WLX 343M. This car reputedly was converted to the series 5 spec demo car CA.73-77.
It may well have been built in 73 but the first 411 series4 were registered in 1974. There are no chassis numbers listed at all in the chassis number book produced by the club which have a double 0 after the 77. Chassis number increased by 6 or 4 numbers throughout production and not necessarily in numerical order. Many mysteries in numbering of Bristol's , the answers died with TC RIP.
