I can’t find the original layout but:
B stands for the engine size. A for the small engine in Sprites (less than 2000cc) and B for the engine in Healeys up to 3000 cc’s or so. Thus the AN, etc. for Sprites since they had a 900 or so cc engine.
N stands for two seater although it appeared on the BN4 which was a “occasional” four seater (if you had stubby legs you could fit)
T for four seater
J for true convertible with the top permanently fastened
L is for left hand drive
If there is an “O” it stands for equipped with overdrive but this was omitted on most cars as most had standard OD.
So, BN6 was a large engine two seater and the 6th model in the series. BJ8 was a large engine car with a permanent folding top and the 8th model in the series.
BJ9 is my Kia Sedona.

Hello Mike; I am not sure what type of codes you are after - model, engine, chassis, etc.
Attached is a file with chassis codes. This may help a bit.

Everything is on the web, right? Why can't I find it? Anyway, can
someone point me to a website that lists all the British auto codes,
e.g., BN, BN, BJ........, (but not just Austin Healey)? I know they
relate to engine size and body style, but can't find the details. Are
they an Austin system, BMC system, other? Thanks.
