Kevin, you did not say what make?

The first prefix number / letters - model is :-

10 AMW - Austin / Morris 1100
10 AH - Austin / Morris 1100 with positive crankcase ventilation
10 GR - 1100 Automatic models
10 GR MG 1100
10 GRB - Wolseley 1100 and MG 1100 with positive crankcase ventilation
10 R - Riley Kestrel 1100
10 V Vanden Plass 1100

Those are the GB numbers, then you have export / overseas builds :)

Hope this helps

Alan
