Description

The Jowett Javelin was the first all-new post-war British car. Designed to launch the small Bradford firm of Jowett into successful mass production, the good-looking four door family saloon was amongst the most innovative cars then available. Discerning motoring enthusiasts soon began a love affair with the Javelin and its sporting sister, the Jupiter, that lasts to this day, even though their achievements were not enough to save the company from its ultimate closure.
