Serial numbers appear to have been assigned sequentially to all vehicles (including vehicles other than Stealths and 3000GTs) built at the Nagoya plant, except for a few special numbers. Spyder serial numbers effectively had 800000 added to them (e.g. if the next assignable serial number was 012345 and it was a Spyder, then it was assigned 812345).
