For Sale: 1953 Jowett Jupiter in La Jolla, California

Vehicle Description


This beautiful 1954 Jowett Jupiter Mark I A here at Sports Car Company, is an ultra-rare find with a superb frame-off restoration completed by the previous owner. This car was part of a private collection that was owned for over 35 years. It was lovingly cared for and had a full restoration.

This gorgeous Jupiter Mark I A is one of the few remaining cars of the ultra-rare models. There were a grand total of 897 models made from 1950 to 1954 and only 94 were Mark I A's, and our Jupiter Mark I A is one of the only 54 left-hand drive models ever produced!

As a Mark I A, our 1953 Jupiter boasts an engine with more horsepower than the previous years and a larger trunk that can be accessed from the exterior of the car.

This car just received a full major service including replacing all fluids, servicing the brakes, cleaning the fuel lines, and replacing any belts and hoses, and drives very well.

The cabin features a single bench seat that will accommodate two, which is upholstered in leather while the remaining cabin is upholstered in rexine (a faux leather material coated in fabric). It comes with a folding soft top that is stored behind the seat.

The Jupiter has some racing history as it achieved competition success with a record-breaking class win at the 1950 Le Mans 24 Hour race, a class one-two in the 1951 Monte Carlo International Rally, an outright win in the 1951 Lisbon International Rally, and a class one-two in a grueling four-hour sports car race on the public road at Dundrod Circuit in Northern Ireland in September 1951.

This Jupiter Mark I A is an excellent choice for a collector wanting something very rare and very exceptional.

The five-digit odometer shows approximately 264 miles; only a handful have been driven in while in the private collection.

Vehicle features include a beige soft top, driver's side-view mirror, split windshield, and beautiful chrome bumpers and trim.

Here, find one of the cleanest examples of a very rare and fully restored Jowett Jupiter Mark I A to be seen today.
This is a superb example of a timeless classic!
