The Bradford based company of Jowett embarked upon car
manufacture in 1906 and rapidly built up a reputation for well-
engineered. robust cars which were particularly notable for their
hill climbing ability and rugged qualities. However. the best
remembered nowadays are almost certainly the stylish Javelin Saloon
and its sporting counterpart. the Jupiter. The Javelin Saloon
was introduced in 1946 and is regarded today as a true milestone in
original car design. Certainly. its performance stands
comparison with many 1½-litre cars thirty years its junior and
indeed the Javelin was the best performing 1½-litre saloon of its
day. The horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine gave a top
speed in excess of 80mph. allied to extremely good fuel
consumption. with around 30-32mpg being the norm. The Javelin also
achieved a number of competition successes. including a class win
in the 1949 Monte Carlo Rally whilst another example won the
two-litre Touring Car Class at the Spa 24-Hour race in the same
year. The 1953 International Tulip Rally saw an outright win
for a privately entered Javelin.

Originally registered on 25th November 1948. this
Jowett Javelin presents in good order throughout and is best
described as a sound. solid and honest example. There appears to be
no areas of corrosion to give cause for concern although she has
obviously had work done over the years. The previous vendor kept
JOH 184 in his private collection for sixteen years. These slightly
quirky cars have almost an 'art deco' styling to them and as well
as some mechanical designs that were not often seen in 1948.
Supplied with a V5C registration document together with the
original buff logbook. this Jowett is currently registered as SORN.
A rare sight on British roads. this Jowett Javelin is offered at a
very tempting estimate.
