We acquired this wonderful 1949 Jowett Javelin from a regular customer who has a small collection of classic cars all of a very high standard. We have had the pleasure of selling five of his cars in the past few years as he likes to use them for a season or two and then sell in order to to buy a model he has not owned before.
It was registered new on the registration number MAF152 in July 1949 to its first owner in Falmouth Cornwall who kept it until 1965. It remained in Cornwall with its second and third owners until 1973 when it was acquired by a gentleman in Norfolk.
This fourth owner in Norfolk kept it for 24 years until 1997 when it was bought by an enthusiast in Yorkshire who over his 19 years of ownership restored the car to the superb standard we see today.
The history file contains the current V5 log book, all three previous V5s and log books showing the total ownership history, the current MOT, numerous previous MOT certificates, an original Maintenance Manual and a copy of a workshop manual.
Although the car is now MOT exempt as it was manufactured prior to 1960, it has an MOT which runs until May 2018. The current recorded mileage is 55601.
A new set of professionally made carpets has just been fitted and the sale also includes a very difficult to find spare front windscreen.
Rules that commenced in October 2014 mean that the car will need to be licensed for twelve months from the date of sale for the new owner but this will be free as the car qualifies for the Historic Taxation class.
Very difficult to find in this condition.
Prospective buyers are welcome to come a view the car in our Leeds showroom.
