A little knowledge is dangerous.

The MGBs exported to Australia were CKD and unpainted.  When they got here
chassis numbers were added (starting with a Y) and a number of locally
produced components added (distributors, alternators, lights etc) which were
made here by Smiths and Lucas.  They were then painted in a range of
colours, similar but not the same as, UK colours.

Leyland Australia, who built/assembled them here detroyed all the records
when they closed down.

The car engine numbers, however, are as per the UK 'system'.  

Anders only has records of the NUMBER of units shipped - nothing more.
