MG MGB Technical - Body Commission Number
|I have just purchased a 68 Roadster and there is a plate which states Body Commission Number starting with G23 is this the factory build number. John|
|Sort of. The code breaks down as: "G"= MG; "23"= MGB; either an "N" or "D"= roadster or GT; then a series of stamped numbers and finally an "F", "P" or "Z" depending on where the car was finished.|
Coventry (cars built 62-69 and early mgc roadsters), Swindon (B roadsters 69-70, later C roadsters, GT's 65-70) or Cowley (all cars 70-76) respectively.
These plates were attached at the respective finishing plant, not at Abingdon.
|Thanks Simon all is clear now|
