1951 Jowett Jupiter

1951 Jowett Jupiter

Note: The following story was excerpted from the October 2015 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine

Jowett was an unorthodox make even by British standards. From 1910 through 1936, Jowetts were powered by horizontally opposed two-cylinder engines. A four introduced in ’36 continued the “boxer” layout in which the two banks of cylinders faced each other with the crankshaft in the middle. Then, too, Jowett was located off the beaten path in the Yorkshire village of Idle. (Management must have gotten tired of “Idle factory” jokes.)
