You’d expect BMC/BL’s record keeping to be top notch when it comes to production figures, wouldn’t you? Whilst compiling this page, and subsequentally updating and ratifying figures, it’s clear that things don’t always quite add up and sometimes figures contradict themselves.

These figures were pulled together using Graham Robson’s book “The cars of BMC”, and Andres Clausager’s book “Complete Catalogue of Austin Cars from 1945”.
