    Isn't it true that only the 100s had numbered cockpit trims? I'm pretty close to the first one, but mine is a 6-cyl (#942).

    Randy,

    The stamping was done through the first series BN4 and then apparently discontinued with the BN6s according to the Anderson and Moment Restoration Guide.

    Hey Duane,
    How ya doing out there in CA with your Healey ? Still using that jack handle in shows and actually had to use the jack recently to check on my kill switch. Thank goodness had that handle ! Did you get these from the folks in Colorado selling off a bunch of left over 100 parts ? I spoke to her after she had sold them, nice lady. Let me know if you ever run across cockpit trim for a 100 with Jensen number 13011 on it. Been trying to track those parts down for 3 years !
    Regards,
    Mike

    Mike,

    Doing well with the Healey, rear and front suspension complete, I need to install the steering column and tie rods to make it a rolling chassis, hopefully this weekend. I'm glad you're putting the handles to use!!

    I'm still sorting the some of the parts I got here locally, that's where the trim came from. I've had your trim number in my wallet for a while just in case!!

    As I was sorting through a bunch of nuts and bolts, I also came across the batch / body original firewall plate for body number 4455. I emailed the 100 registrar, but have not heard back yet, so if you or anyone else knows who has the 100 with body number 4455, I'd like to reunite them with their plate!


    Thanks,
    Duane

    Yes our BN4 had matching numbered cockpit trim.

    Maybe the Longbridge workers were more prone to misplacing parts than the Abingdon crew, so once production was moved, they abandoned the practice?

    Re: Door Cockpit Trim

    G'day Duane,
    I'd be interested to know the batch number preceding 4455 on that firewall plate. My July '54 100 is close to that number. I found my Jensen number on the cockpit surround and the trunk-lid but the firewall plate was missing from my car when it came into my possession.

    Cheers,
    Alwyn
    Forty nine years in one 100, still going strong!

    Hi Duane, sorry I don't recall getting an email about this but I do not have body #4455 listed in the AHCA 100 Registry.

    Closest body numbers are #4448 (in UK) & #4457 (parted out).

    Alwyn,

    The batch number is 4864. I'm sending the plate and trim pieces to Randy Hicks (100 registrar) so they can end up with their "rightful" owners!

    Thanks,
    Duane
