Swage line on bulkhead, exposed joints rear panel RN, RP smooth. Dashboard. Doors slightly different (moulding around glass parallel on RN, slightly bowed on RP).

Then I have a RN with a 4 speed gear box and plated window surround. And rear fuel tank.

I forgot to mention that the rear body seams on my car are flush as on the RP.

About the last months production of RNs had 4 speed box, rear tank, D type axle and instruments like RP in separate panel and no visible rear body vertical seams. The RP had an overlapping sun roof (not inset) the mould lines under the side windows have a slight dip, the scuttle waist mould line goes up the A post.

Ah......I thought it was a lowered lightened saloon for racing  Rolleyes

Yes Ruairidh, that's the best way of identifying whether it's an RP or RN, particularly with the 4 speed RNs.

I see I am going to through a spanner in all of this. Mine doesn't have a step down in the body line thickness like in the first picture and also doesn't look like the second. 

I am 99% sure mine has a uniform thick waist line from the front all the way to the nose.

OK so my mat'e December 33 RP has the wood roof supports, so presumably Austin's had realised using up the wood off cuts was cheaper than the steel pressings.
