 Honest, you have a roadster.
 The clue is the 3rd character of the VIN - "N"
 This was the code for Roadsters (Tourers according to the factory)
  GT's on the other hand had the third character as a "D"
 The last six digets are the actuall serial number of the car, and really
haven't any connection to body type. I've heard roumors that the numbers
weren't neccessarily consecutive on two concurrent cars coming down the
 What the Moss charts give is the START  serial number of the GT and
START number of the Roadster.
  After that, all bets are off.
