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. This book presents the complete story of these two very special Jowett models, analyzing their design and production in considerable detail. Including a fascinating account of their competition history and a close analysis of the company’s abrupt and still-controversial cessation of car manufacture.
