1913 JOWETT TILLER

BEST RE­STORED CAR

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Britain’s Car Club Heroes -

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.
