Production and chassis numbers

- The standard Continental R got the letter "B" on the 5th position of the chassis number. The exclusively for Brunei manufactured model can be recognised by the letter "H" on the 5th position. This letter indicates a non standard model for selected customers, especially Brunei. The serial numbers at the end of the chassis numbers don't belong to the regular numbers in that model year.
