Lot Number:
Estimate: £6,000 - 8,000
  • V5 Present
  • MoT Exempt
  • Chassis number: D7CA3708
This diminutive but very able Jowett Bradford started its working life with Derby Corporation's cleansing and transport department in 1947, when it was registered RC 9710 ‑ a number kept by the previous owner for sentimental reasons. Fast forward some years, and the 946cc twin‑cylinder sidevalve‑engined vehicle was rebuilt in 1992, receiving attention to the chassis, body and engine at the cost of a not unsubstantial (then) £880.24. In 2004, it went into storage in a shed, emerging only recently.

The Jowett is still well‑preserved, considering it was restored 30 years ago, although there's some lifting of paint noticeable on the cab body, along with other age marks. Its original brass identification plaque is still in place, showing engine and body numbers. A further brass plaque records an engine overhaul from a garage in Norwich. The odometer reads 61,892 miles, but this is unwarranted. Please note that the current registration number, NXS 266, was put on in 2020 and is non‑transferrable.

The vehicle will be sold with assorted spares and a history folder that includes the old RF60 logbook, new V5, data sheets, MoTs from 1992, 1995, 1999 and 2002, plus old books and magazines stretching to the 1940s, such as a Pitman's Motorists' Library handbook and three‑shilling list of spare parts, dating from 1949. There's also a packed file of Jowett Car Club literature, plus photos of the pick‑up both pre‑ and post‑restoration.
