T Type Factory Production Records
This is the new version of the T Register’s searchable online database of the MG Factory Records for all T Types, and is searchable both for chassis number and engine number. The search return will give you the production record data held for your car, with its original engine number and the date it rolled off the production line.
It now also has a T Register Notes field which gives you any additional information entered by the factory next to the chassis number such as engine changes, and any other alterations originally made to the record. The Notes field also includes information entered by the T Register of cars of historic interest, and to point to anomalies in the records.
The records are a digital copy of the original paper factory records, and have not been amended in the light of subsequent information, although some pointers are given in the T Register Notes field as outlined above.
Note that the records show the Production Car No as well as the Chassis No, and the T Register recommends that the former is used, rather than the Chassis No, for UK DVLA purposes to identify the car when updating Registration. If there is a discrepancy between the numbers in the Production Car No and the Chassis no, use the Chassis No instead.
If searching by chassis number, be sure to enter the letter prefix (such as TC, TD or TD/C) followed by the number. Do not put a space in between.
Example of correct format: TC0750
If searching by original engine number, for TA/TB/TC be sure to enter the MPJG or XPAG prefix followed by the number with a space in between.
Example of the correct format: XPAG 9211
For TD/TF there are no spaces but there are forward slashes between the engine number components.
Example of the correct format: XPAG/TD2/23015
For TDs only, if the TD is LHD, the engine number is prefixed by LHX.
Example of the correct format: XPAG/TD/LHX4950
