Folios were used to define the ``Units'' used to build all the above separate models. Most unit numbers were the same as the folio number but with another appended number. These are similar to the numbers used for the MALs, but there does not appear to be a direct mapping. For instance the Bond 875 required unit 2A/111 (Engine Stoke) from folio 01, 37/322 (Chassis items CKD) from folio 37 and 38/322 (Body trim and hardware CKD) from folio 38. In this case all other components were supplied by Bond Cars Ltd. The Bond MAL is number 399999.

We list below the different units from Folio 53 ``Body as Delivered''. These are the different body types referenced in the MALs and required to build each model of Imp. They approximately correspond to Home, Export LHD and Export RHD for each body shape, but there are a few additions such as the 900 and Sunbeam export models which probably had different drilled holes for trim. The North American Specification (Spring Special) is also listed as a Sunbeam de-Luxe NAS.
