Chassis number B2080
Registration number: U3566

Vintage and Prestige Fine Motor Cars are proud to be offering this 1920 Jowett 8hp H.O.2 Light Car for sale. Rare and innovative, Jowetts use of a horizontally opposed pair of cylinders set them apart from the competition. In order to prove this, Jowett sent two cars named "wait" & "see" to west Africa in the 1920's and proceeded to drive them ever eastwards until they met the red sea, a journey taking some 60 days.

This particular example is in fine order having had new pistons fitted not many miles back and the cylinders re-bored. The engine starts readily, usually on the first turn of the handle and is a surprisingly sprightly performer given the light body work. Smartly finished in two shades of grey, the Jowett 8hp H.O.2 Light Car sits on artillery style wheels.

To the interior is black leather, the hood of cream canvas. There are plenty of brass bits to keep one busy on insomniac evenings. To the rear is a useful boot for picnic requisites etc. On the road the Jowett 8hp H.O.2 Light Car is a pleasure to drive. Steering is light and direct with the suspension being soft due to the light weight of the car. The Jowett 8hp H.O.2 Light Car more than holds its own amongst ‘B’ road traffic. It affordable simple and reliable vintage motoring.
