Engine numbers in prototypes

Post by timetack » Tue Nov 24, 2015 14:58

Hi there,
I am compiling a register of 'special' engines produced by BMC for prototypes & Works race/rally cars + Formula Junior/F3. The vast majority have XSP prefixes (built by Morris Engines in Coventry), but some are prefixed EX (MG), CEXP (Landcrab) or SPL (Special Products Longbridge).
I see that the early prototype Mokes have SPL chassis numbers; does anybody have info on their engine #s?
How many of these had 948cc engines & when was the switch to 848?
Any info on specifications also gratefully received!
Rob
