1913 JOWETT TILLER
BEST RESTORED CAR
This breathtaking restoration of the world’s oldest surviviving Jowett – and the subsequent efforts by its owner to keep it in tip-top condition – wowed the show judges, who were looking for authenticity, workmanship and an inspiring story behind the repairs. It was first restored 25 years ago after it was discovered on a rubbish tip and has been continually worked on since then by owner Michael Kavanagh. Despite being one of only two surviving cars of its type, it still has its original coachwork, and was the star of the Jowett Car Club’s stand.
