Replacement Frame/Chassis
« on: February 14, 2020, 03:09:13 PM »
I found out the frame / chassis on my 1980 MGB (LE) rebuild is gone. Anyone know where I can find I replacement?

There is NO frame on a MGB... it's a monocoque vehicle. If the "frame-like" members (such as the king rails) are rusted out, they have to be rebuilt by carefully welding on new metal in a way that attains original strength.

Hi Michael,

If you mean the chassis ID plates, they're available from Moss (p/n 408-340 for the 2-plate ID set and 408-334 for the commission plate). 

They are, of course, not stamped and you may have to enlist British Motor Heritage to find out the numbers using the VIN.

Hope that helps you.

Safety Fast!
