G-214 was Grumman's design for what became the Mercury spacecraft.

No. G-327 is (was) a missile study.

The Advanced Design Composite Aircraft (ADCA) study from 1975-1976 includes a reference to a ASL-D 952-105B supersonic penetration interdiction fighter. Several references to a Grumman ADCA configuration 105B are included in same attached doc link. Im not familiar with Grumman designation system and perhaps more scholarly forum folk might be able to confirm or deny. I'm ASSUMING, and I make this clear - "ASSUMING" a Grumman designation of 925-105B but this doesn't seem right to me. I apologize if this Grumman design has already been mentioned and is not missing from the forum produced list.

see page 72 of this PDF. Other references are made to this ADCA design in the doc below.

I suppose I should have asked if any member know what the ASD-L naming system is because it frequently was used by Grumman. My understanding is that it covered purely conceptual designs that went no further.
Thanks

My impression (by no means certain) is that these refer to wind tunnels, test "campaigns" and datasets.

As far as is known, Grumman project numbers had not reached 800, even by 1988.
