No note on how many were built. 10B1R, or 10R: JT8D-1 or -7, 20 built. 10B3 (also known as Horizon B): JT8D-1, -7, or -9 engines, 22 built. 11R: A combi configuration with a forward cargo door. JT8D-7 engines. 6 built. 12 (also known as Super Caravelle): JT8D-9 engines. 12 built. All earlier versions used RR Avon engines. The Caravelle had a remarkable production history. The first version went into service in May 1959, and the last Caravelle rolled off the line in March 1973. A total of 282 were built. 33 different airlines ordered Caravelles, and my reference estimates that over 85 airlines operated at least one Caravelle at one time or another. --- David K.
