1952 Jowett Jupiter. 

Len Peach

Chassis no.  739.  Engine is a flat 4 cylinder horizontally opposed 1500cc petrol with twin Weber carburettors.

About 940 were made between 1950 - 54 when Jowett finally went into liquidation.

We bought this in 2018 and have done extensive work over the last two years including a total engine rebuild, complete body repaint and an overdrive installed.

I’ve owned “Ruby” for almost 15 years and still love driving her. I have attended lots of events in her, both in France (where we lived for 16 years) and in the UK, including Le Mans Classic, Coupe Florio, Tour du Méné, Silverstone Classic, Yorkshire Festival of Porsche and many local shows. In 2018, she was featured on the French equivalent of Top Gear.
