 Ok, I’ve got a couple of interior questions. I’m new to the JH and I’m stumped.

1) Has anyone seen a center console like this? Every one I’ve seen in photos, and including the original plastic one from this car, has an ash tray & cig lighter.
This one which is from a later car has this plastic piece with 2 narrow slots where the ash tray would be.

What are these slots for? What went there? I’ve been using it to hold the garage door opener.


2) I got this JH badge on ebay. They seller said it came off his JH from yrs ago and he doesn’t remember where it went. I thought I'd seen a steering wheel badge like this in a photo. It’s more rounded than the hood badge and it doesn’t have the 2 posts. But it’s too big for the steering wheel.

Where does this go? Did I just buy an $18 belt buckle?

Mason,

Your center console has been modified. That is not an original piece.

The badge is a steering wheel badge. My memory is a little on the foggy side here, but I believe it was fitted to steering wheels from the later JH5 and or the GT.

Mason, you might be able to swap out the badge in the steering wheel with your new one I'm pretty sure the rubber one is removable that way you can unbolt the steering wheel, just not sure if they are of the same size.

I have the early 1974 MkII with the rubber emblem. I think the 1974½ and up had the metal insert.

I do have the removable rubber insert and the metal one is too big so it must be from the later model.

Well, anyone need a steering wheel badge from a later JH? I would gladly pass this thing on to someone from the club who can use it.

Anyone ever thought about doing a "Wanted/swap" post on the board? I'm not talking about anything that would compete with JHPS or Delta but I've got a ton of spare parts that came with my car that I wouldn't bother putting up for sale. If someone posts they need part xyz that is NLA I or someone might have something.

Feel free to shoot the idea down, I figure there must be a reason it hasn't been done yet!

Mason
