Based in Idle, near Bradford, the Jowett car was the result of two brothers' engineering skills. Put into production before the start of the First World War, the Jowett car, by the 1920s, was well-known as a rugged, dependable, reliable form of transport, much beloved of its owners, who had soon formed an Owner's Club, which at 90 years of age is the oldest one make car club in the world. The new Jowett factory opened in Idle in 1919 and the first car produced was the Jowett Seven, with commercial models following in 1922 and the Jowett Long Four tourer during 1923, with a closed model in 1925. The first decade after the war was perhaps one of Jowett's finest, with the company manufacturing thousands of their economical cars and light vans to an appreciative and enthusiastic audience. Noel Stokoe is acknowledged as an expert on the Jowett, owning two himself, but also is the club's historian.
