First, Matt Jefferies gave a real life explanation for the choice of numbering (probably also inspired by the registry number of his Waco airplane).
Not likely, especially since he didn't get the plane until a year after TOS ended.
Really? The Virginia Aviation Museum says otherwise

And could private pilots back in the Sixties just pick their favorite airplane registry number? "NC 17740" can't be coincidental.
