MG MG Y Type - Identification tag
|I found this tag amongst the boxes of bits with my YA|
My question is what is it
It's not the same No' as the chassis so what is it and where does it go thanks willy
|It fits against the bulkhead and has the bodynumber. On the picture you can (just) see it above the battery box.
|Willem van der Veer|
|Yes it is the 125 MG tag and goes above the Nuffield Metal Products Plate on the left of the firewall as shown in Willem's picture William.|
Photo of tag attached, this was the position on a UK car...both of these plates were fitted prior to paint so were body colour.
|OK Thanks |
Now my problem is this no' is different to the chassis no So I take it that the number on this plate is purely a body no. and I take more notice of the chassis no. which I used for the MGY Register
Would that be how it is gents--------
|Yes . This number is usually the same as the first digits on the Nuffield Metal Products plate and is a NUFFIELD tag as opposed to an MG Assembly Plant one.|
Have you put your car in Y's on Parade, I would love to see a photo ?.
