Been some discussion lately on how many H120's are left so I did some digging using info available on t'internet!

I'm sure this info is held by the club but I was bored last night so put a list together, if anyone else has additions please let me know!

I am not aware of any H120's being factory prepared as LHD cars.
I didn't think about the 'bunch of bananas'interfering with the steering box, but I imagine there may have been issues with emissions too. They did not make that many and probably did not think they would sell sufficient to warrant exporting them - that's only my guess. G.

Was there any H120 sold as LHD? I have made my Replica H120 and the exhaust had not enough place against the steeringbox. So I have to rebuild the exhaustmanifoild to fit.

I'll update the list again when I'm back in blighty.

I've owned 3 H120's with steel sumps, it seems only the early ones had ally ones.

You may have missed the H120 that was for sale in Nottingham in 2014.
I looked at it and it was tatty with a very bad respray in Triumph Mimosa yellow.

It was originally Sundance yellow.

The Reg was BVC 472K .Of course it may not have been an original?
It did have a pressed steel sump? may have been replaced.

Checked the DVLA and its been sorned since May 2014.

Add another h120 to the list.


bigt80 Posted - 25 Jul 2016 : 18:28:07
A few more then J. I've just heard of another I didn't have a record of before:-
LMO 283L
Cheers. G

Updated list with a few additions, most notably the oldest one on the list


bigt80 Posted - 26 Jun 2016 : 17:14:03
Chatting to electricnick; it seems his Firecracker Orange one is not on the list - OMU 70K.

Not at all, I could be wrong, but I'd seen the car in the 80's when Geoff Woolfe owned it and it was striped as now :-). So, maybe on reasonable authority G.

Well done Mike: it's there at last Remember this was the prototype H120 & at that stage it is likely that the familiar twin (think/thin) stripe had not been agreed upon for final production; so I would say you have the 'correct' stripe for this unique car. Great it has been saved. Cheers. G.
JPSH120 Posted - 24 Jun 2016 : 17:35:32
Well should you decide to get correct H120 stripes then let me know, I have the dimensions.

Just realised that your car is the oldest H120 out of those I have listed (although I need to add yours to the list).

The garage found three different styles of stripes as they peeled off various layers of paint. The stripes they put back on were the ones 'nearest the car' so I presumed they were the originals.

I was more upset they missed the air filter!

By the look of it, the correct stripes!
