This Jowett Javelin saloon car from 1950 was on display at the Peterborough Classic and Vintage Vehicle Show on The Embankment in September 2018. A total of 23,307 Javelin cars were manufactured by Jowett Cars Ltd. between 1947 and 1953. The company was based at Idle near Bradford.
The Jowett Javelin was equipped with a 1,486cc, four-cylinder engine capable of a top speed of 77 miles per hour. The car's aerodynamic styling was considered a revolutionary departure from the rather staid design of pre-Second World War vehicles. The model retailed in 1948 for 818 (GBP 818) including purchase tax; adjusted for inflation, this was equivalent to approximately 30,430 (GBP 30,430) at 2018 prices.
