I have a 5 speed as well with no JH5.  Vin is 19714 purchased in Oakland, Calif by me.  I wonder if that was a regional thing, maybe east v west?  Now a true 2.2.  Also have original still running engine.
Anybody know the last vin number made?

19343 is not a JH5. It's my understanding that some of the last units produced included both models with some VIN numbers out of sequence. The nameplate says model 111F?

Hi all, New member as of today!

Western Australia
1974 JH Tangerine
VIN 1141 16515
ENG# B74 04 7145

Must have been restored at some stage as it's in excellent condition however i don't have much history on it.

Worked on this with my Father when i was a teenager, swapped out Strombergs with Dellorto 45's and did a lot of timing work on the cams. This is about all i can remember.

Once parts arrive the start up after sitting for 7-10 years will begin.

I now own #30464. Bought from Joe Mazurk, Chicago, in November 2013. Black paint with black vinyl roof. He had removed the A/C but eventually hope to get a VINTAGA AIR replacement.

Hello!

New owner here of 1973 JH, VIN# 11144.  It's black now, but I'd love to learn if it started that way.  8X,XXX miles...  mechanically original and quite sound.  I'm shocked at how well it drives as a former LOTUS, Alfa, BMW, Ginetta and current TR6 (heavily modified) and RHD MINI Cooper owner.

Will post more info as I find it.  new Timing Belt goes on tomorrow!

Cheers,

Aaron
St. Paul, MN U.S.A.

JH 20451, fair/running condition, engine #B7407-8098, San Diego, CA.

I have not been able to find much about its previous life. I bought the car with 62k miles and a Florida salvage title in San Diego. Curiously, the car has British plates - LDA 161P.

It is "pink" (Tangerine?) with light grey interior/top, and green carpeting. I am assuming the interior matching roll bar and chrome luggage rack were factory options?

The only immediate issues are a locked gas cap with no key, and inoperational emergency flasher/signals. Next will be rust repair and paint, and perhaps modifying the seat for more leg room. Not to mention California re-registration of a salvage titled car...

Aaron,

+1 on the new belt. Who is putting it in?

And I've been curious... who is the PO in Chicago?

Regards,
Tim Engel

Hey Tim -

A buddy of mine owns a shop and helped me do it.  Cam seals have been ordered so we'll be doing it again.  I bought the car from a Dealer down there who had acquired it from a retired engineer who had owned and worked on it for a long time.

The bonnet is off now - freshly stripped and getting re-painted next week.

Cheers!

Early JH VIN 10626 Date of Manufacture 10/11/72

All original 22k miles. Just pulled out of a barn in Maryland after sitting there since 1979.

Amazingly rust free with absolutely perfect floors, rockers, sills, etc. Not running but engine turns over smoothly. Full restoration to begin...
