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!

You can add UFS133H in blue, taxed and MOT OK, according to the website of the «vehicle enquiry service» from the Government. This car is (or was until a few years) around the Moffat region in Scotland.

Best greetings from the Isle of Arran in Scotland.

Typo there Jason, the 3rd from bottom on the list is my Lauren's red one, number plate is JNO710H, thought to be the oldest surviving Linwood built H120 - number 68 off the line.

Glad to see mine is on there too, EWK163L
and 14 on the road - great news!, 50% came to the national.

Thanks Dave, I knew it was H but my finger obviously had different ideas! List updated above and the new one added as suggested by Bruno.

A few new additions to the list, most notably the car that Gordon Jarvis rallied back in the day!

Although it has been untaxed since 1982 so I'm sure it met it's maker a long time ago :(

Well, here's the story up until I sent it to the garage...

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!

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!

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).

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.

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.
