I'll consolidate a couple of threads here with a history of the 737 involved in the incident at BUR last night:

Airrcraft type: Boeing 737-3T5
First flight: December 21, 1984
Serial number: 23060
Line number: 1069
History:

Sold to Orion AL on January 29, 1985, registered as G-BLKB
Orion merged with Britannia on January 26, 1989
Morris Air of SLC leased aircraft on April 11, 1993, and registered as N753MA
Morris merged with Southwest on or about June 10, 1994, and Southwest then reregistered aircraft as N668SW.

To answer the question about the number of 737-300 series aircraft built, the answer is 1,113.

Thanks to Bill Harms web-site, and SC airliner lists for the above info.

Will the aircraft be returned to service after repairs?

Nope, Southwest is saying that it is damaged beyond economical repair.

Apparently the Qantas 744 damaged in Bangkok late last year was realistically written off as the repair costs were greater than the replacement cost but Qantas were keen to keep there reputation of never having written off an airframe in service so they decided to spend the extra and fix up the plane.

I don't know what their insurers made of this.
