BN1 floor pan

I recently came across a partially restored 1953 BN1. The floorboards had <span style="font-weight: bold">100</span> embossed in them in rather large numbers. Does anyone know when this practice for the AH100 ceased?
Thanks

------------------------------------
The reason they lengthened six cylinder cars 4" between the pillars was to make room for the "dash" and the "6".

Technically speaking, the practice never ceased, all Healeys have "100" on their floor pans.

What did change, however, was mid production on the 100, when they installed seat slides (first on the driver's side, then on both) they had to change the stampings so that the seat slides would sit flat on the floor. To do this they put a line where the two zeros were, so you could say it is still a 100 with an underline for the two zeros.

So mid production on the BN1....

The early seat pan with the 100 shaped pressings was used until about Body 1000. Then the pressing was changed as noted above to allow the newly introduced seat slider tracks to have a level surface to bolt down securely.
For anybody needing the early pressings, Kilmartin now has them.
