Main British Car:

Healey 100 Body # Locations

Just took delivery of my new Nasty Boy and trying to learn its history. Seems, as many V8 conversions, this one lost its firewall Body/Batch plate and Chassis ID plate with the swap to a Chevy SB.

I've pulled the aluminum cockpit surrounds and have a matching Body # across all 4 pieces, but the boot support tab has been removed and i cannot find any numbering on the hood edge. My last search is for the elusive shock tower number and I have not been able to find any photos or more detailed description of where to look. Hoping that someone here may be able to help me find the right place to look.

Car is a 1954/1955 100 and appears to be from Batch # 4864.

Any guidance is appreciated.

Only the BJ8s had the numbers stamped on the shock tower. No numbers stamped on the early cars.
