Jowett 10 Conservation Project

Bradford Industrial Museum

Tue 18 Jun 2019 - Sun 1 Mar 2020

Our Jowett 10 conservation project is under way! 

Bradford Museums and Galleries will be working with the Jowett Car Club to conserve and restore a Jowett 10 owned by Bradford Museums service. 

The car was donated to the Industrial Museum in a poor condition and our aim is to conserve this amazing vehicle, so that it can be put on permanent display in the transport gallery at the Industrial Museum for all of our visitors to enjoy. 

The car had one owner from new, who used it to travel around Europe. The car travelled over 151,000 miles between 1938 and 1964. 

The Jowett 10 was produced between 1936 and 1940 by Jowett Cars Ltd Bradford. The company was established by the Jowett brothers, in Bradford, in 1906. they manufactured family cars, sports cars and vans until the company ceased operating in 1955. 

You can find out more about the project, the car and Jowett Cars Ltd at the Industrial Museum. 

The Jowett 10 has been displayed at the Classic Car Restoration Show at the Birmingham NEC and will be on display at the Industrial Museum throughout the project. 

Please help us to conserve this vehicle by donating to the project. Your donation could help us restore a door panel, wheel arch or even something as small as door handle. A project donation box can be found near the car in the transport gallery.
