The Jowett brothers started the Jowett Motor Manufacturing Company in 1901.

The company continued making a range of saloon, sports and utility vehicles until 1954.

This web will record the History; but for now I recommend you read one of the following publications. A marvelous booklet is available to read here.

jh-ns1.jpg (87390 bytes)jh-ns2.jpg (131189 bytes) Images of Motoring, Jowett, 1901-1954, (ISBN 0 7524 1723 1) is the history of the company  told through over 200 excellent photographs with some text. At the UK price of 9.99 (USA price $18.99) it is excellent value for money. Compiled by Noel Stokoe, Press secretary of the Jowett Car Club and the Jupiter Owners Auto Club.
