1950 PB Jowett Javelin Deluxe For Sale
1950 PB Jowett Javelin Deluxe
Partly restored PB Javelin Deluxe (EOPB10902D) seeking a good home. This is a matching numbers car with much of the hard work done already. It has been off the road since 1958 and has only 73,000 miles on the ODO. Kept under cover since 1986. The body shell is fully restored; any rust was cut out and new metal welded in, any dents were all panel beaten out, and the refinishing work was done to a very high standard without using body-filler; they lead-filled the few areas which needed attention! The burgundy 2-pac paint is superb, and the interior, engine compartment, and the boot compartment have also all been repainted, as have all 5 wheels.
Most mechanicals have undergone an older reconditioning including the original engine, which runs well on the existing flat sided crankshaft, and modified pistons to suit “Cord” brand segmented compression rings. The distributor and the twin carbies (fitted with pancake air filters) have been rebuilt. Although the engine rebuild was done pre-unleaded fuel, it has only had a few test stand hours, so it has not yet been fully run in! The gearbox & differential have not been rebuilt, but have been internally inspected and appear OK. The car has had the front & rear suspension, steering, radiator and brakes restored (new brake lines and silicone brake fluid) and repainted, and new club- supplied Layrub couplings fitted. It comes with new marine ply timber floors, a new laminated windscreen and new toughened side glass, new sealed beam headlight conversions, many re-chromed parts, reconditioned timber dash, and a spare Laystall crankshaft is available by negotiation. Engineered structures have been added for fitment of 6 new, period-style seatbelts (front and rear). Because the trim was stripped out to repaint the inside of the body shell, it has no interior fitted (but all the original red coloured seating & trim is available), and no glass is fitted at the moment. No registration or RWC.
Car is located in Aberfeldie (suburb of Melbourne) for inspection. To be sold on the basis of “as-is, where-is”. Price negotiable.

been converted as part of the restoration into a stunning drop-sided lorry
using Bradford body panels behind the doors. It now features a KD hardwood tray
& sides, with all new period correct ironwork
on a Victorian Club Permit (not transferrable).
An independent Victorian Roadworthiness inspection can be arranged.
