100/6 BN4 Soft Top Frame


Freshman Member

Hi All, I have no idea where the roof frame should fit in on my 58 BN4. Car was totally dismantled when I bought it. Looks like it should fit over the rear wheel arches, but there is nothing there to fit it in. Help wanted.

Also some mystery parts, no idea what they do and where they go.

Hi, That is the frame I have. Think it's from a later BN 4. Mine is SN# 54xxx.

That frame is from a later car, somewhere above 68960. I understand they are easier to put up as opposed to the earlier frame.

Sure the photo is the top of the BN 4 build at Abington, when the production shifted from Longbridge to MG plant
at arrival of all chain material the MG technician let immediately the Longbridge top frame in the rubish-
I also have one oldest 100 -6 Longbrige 1957 and the erection of the top ask 15 minutes and TWO person
I have a long practice and can do it alone - BUT children under 12 year that transit nearest, learn a lot of NEW words
at MG technician simplify all the work with TWO HOLES and elimination of all the hock rail etc etc
This is the photos of the correct frame for 100 6 Longbrige Infamous frame if you need more help contact me
