I bought my 1975 JH-5 from my dad, Scott Jarvis (garaged in Auburn, California) in August of 2011.  My dad owned it for at least 15 years.  He bought it from someone in the Bay Area. Chassis/VIN#  is 1110/20465 and Engine # is T75.02.11356. The car is now garaged and registered in in Portland Oregon.

I contacted Richard Calver and he gave me the following information:

20465...  was Saba Blue originally with Tan trim, no options listed at the factory. It was passed off the line on 1 August 1975 - this fits with the date you see on the tag which reads in the English manner as 8 July 1975"


"The car was indeed sold by Qvale's BMCD. It was actually put out initially as a lease car through his lease arm, BMC Leasing, 440 East Shields Ave, Fresno, CA 93704."

Working on a daily driver restoration.  Plan to have lots fun in the limited NW sun!
