1951 Jowett Javelin



1951 Jowett Javelin

Collected by ourselves from the most fastidious collector who has approached the mechanical overhaul with a true 'No expense spared' attitude.

The Jowett having been in his ownership since 1994.

Supplied with a lovely history, two folders worth in fact, with the following worthy of note:-

  • Original Buff registration book.
  • Old road tax discs (The eldest being 1958)
  • Instruction book. Original item
  • Maintenance Manual. Original item
  • Spare parts booklet. Original item
  • A further spare parts book. Original item
  • Wiring diagram. Original item

The only reason the car is on sale is due to a downsize in property by the owner. Now fully embracing the retirement life and purchasing a sea view apartment on the coast.

Before this property downsize decision was made the Jowett had undergone a major engine overhaul. To include:-

  • Rebuilt cylinder heads
  • New Valves
  • Unleaded conversion
  • Crankshaft
  • Big end bearings
  • Little end bearings
  • Pistons & Rings
  • Oil pump
  • Gaskets

All the required engine machining was carried out be 'Drakes of Bradford' 

Things like plugs, points, core plugs etc etc were all replaced at the same time.

The car drives extremely well, the engine compartment is stunning & vehicle interior is lovely.
