ren­don and Naomi Ar­net are cur­rently piec­ing to­gether this beau­ti­ful Jowett Jupiter, their se­cond such restora­tion. A grow­ing fam­ily ne­ces­si­tated the sale of their ear­lier re­stored Jowett, but they are now back at it and hard at work on Jupiter num­ber two. The car has been com­pletely stripped, and the chas­sis and run­ning gear are nearly com­plete, which means it will soon be back on its wheels and ready to en­ter the fi­nal stages of the restora­tion pro­ject. That said, the com­ple­tion time frame is to­tally de­pen­dent on bud­get, and a fi­nal ex­te­rior colour has yet to be de­cided — al­ways one of the hard­est choices to make!

Only 899 Jowett Jupiters were built be­tween 1950 and 1954, with around 25 known to ex­ist in New Zealand. We’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing one more on our roads, in lov­ingly re­stored con­di­tion.
