British Car Production Figures
Compiled by Michael Engard, Ragtops & Roadsters, 7/8/97
The info in the list was collected mostly from one source. I have a lot of confidence in some of it, namely the MG and Triumph production figures, but other numbers are suspect in their accuracy.
We are seeking input from other enthusiasts to reveiew the production figures of the models they are most familiar and confirm or provide us the correct information.
The goal of the list is to determine how many English cars there are in the United States. The first task to accomplish is to determine how many sports cars were made in England. We are only interested in the cars that were made for selling overseas. Next is to determine how many of these cars were imported to the United States. We realize that many cars were imported/exported privately, in fact almost all pre World War Two cars were done privately (we'd like to know how many of these there are!). We think that the private numbers are a small percentage of the factory trade.
The next step will be to determine how many of these cars still exsist in one form or another, but that's a job for another day!
Please send information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your input!
