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.

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.

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!

Quick quiz: Apart from the battery (I left the lights on!), what did the garage forget to put back?

By the look of it, the correct stripes!
