I am happy to be corrected about the MGB and frankly my knowledge of the Austin nomenclature system derives from my being a Healey owner and know very little about MG's.
What I have never heard or seen a good explanation for is why Austin chose to deviate from its own system in the case of the 100-6, and as I am sure you know the first models released were four-seaters but were nevertheless given an "N" when it should have been a "T", and it seems to me that the two versions should have been "BT4 for the four-seater and BN5 for the later-released two seaters.
Do you have any thoughts on this inconsistency?
