1930 Jarvis Minor Coupe
First seen in late 1929, the Jarvis Coupe was a luxurious version of the Minor. In order to justify its £187-10s-0d, it was equipped with Mosely ‘float-on-air’ seat cushions, a burr walnut dashboard and door cappings, a wind-up/down passenger door window and fitted carpets. Although Jarvis later sub-contracted the building of their special bodies to other coachbuilders these Minor coupe bodies were almost certainly built in-house. The images featured here originated from Temple Press, publishers of both the Light Car and The Motor magazines. The individual standing alongside the coupe is Harold Hastings, the Light Car journalist. (Images courtesy the LAT Archive.)
