Body number

Post by 1966-MOKE » Tue Jul 04, 2017 22:31

Just like to say Hello , i have just joined the Forum

I have been into MK1/MK2 Minis for many years but never MOKEs , so it will be a big learning curve for me

Question i have ,( there will be lots more i suppose :oops:)

Do all English MK1 Mokes have a body number spot welded onto the O/S inner wing , as i can't seem to find one when i had a quick look today

Thanks in advance

Welcome to the forum

Yes, all English Mokes should have a body number welded to the inner wing. It should be found just under the lip of the o/s wing but is often well hidden under paint and the wiring loom.

There was no record kept by the factory of these body numbers so just bear in mind that if you apply to BMIHT using this number, they won't be able to help. It is further complicated because the number that they provide on the Heritage Certificate as "Body Number" is in fact the Commission Number.

Hope that helps. Roger

Hi Roger , Thanks for your reply .

After looking i managed to find it , I was looking a lot lower down on the inner wing ( i said i was learning :lol: )

I can't work out how to upload a photo of it . but it reads AMB 002024 N . (What does the N mean ?)

Thanks again

Ian

Ian, you have to make enough posts (three I believe) before you can add pics
