The Jowett Javelin is an executive car which was produced from 1947 to 1953 by Jowett Cars Ltd of Idle, near Bradford in England. The model went through five variants coded PA to PE, each having a standard and de luxe option. The car was designed by Gerald Palmer during World War II and was intended to be a major leap forward from the relatively staid designs of pre-war Jowetts. Just over 23,000 units were produced.
Brian May from the band Queen purchased this car for his father in 1982. Unfortunately, after his Dad passed away, the car has sat in dry storage to date.
The engine has received some attention in preparation for sale and is now running, and the car is said to be in good working order. The car does not have an MOT but the MOT failure sheet will be supplied to determine the work still needed to pass.
Overall, the car is said to be in fair to good overall condition.
Brian May has asked for it to be auctioned for charity, so the proceeds of this sale will be going to charity.
