MGBs usually had a spare key screwed to the firewall in the engine 
compartment, but whether that was a door key or an ignition key when 
steering locks were fitted I can't recall exactly, although I think it was 
door.  When steering locks were fitted the one other key operated both 
doors, the boot and the glove compartment.  Earlier cars without a steering 
lock used the same style of key for the ignition as for the doors, Clausager 
says FS or FP for some very early cars which also opened the doors, the 
glovebox originally shared its key with the boot and later had its own FT 
key.  Steering lock ignition keys only had a number, not a letter prefix. 
The BMIHT 'birth certificate' for any particular car should state both door 
and ignition (original) key numbers.

I got a inquiry from a MGB car owner where the locks have been replaced. His 
ignition key code number is FS 944. The door locks and boot locks have been 
replaced. Does anyone have a build record for a 64' MGB with the key code 
number listed.
