Information about JBA

JBA Motors, originally founded as JBA Engineering in 1982 by Ken Jones, John Barlow, and Dave Ashley, carved a niche in the automotive industry with their distinctive approach to car manufacturing. The name JBA stems from the initials of the founders, all of whom were previously engineers at British Leyland. Their first creation, the JBA Falcon Roadster, debuted the same year, capturing the essence of 1930s roadsters with its all-aluminium body and fibreglass wings.

The company underwent significant transformations over the years, including a change in ownership and a brief dissolution in 2007. However, it was revitalized in 2008 with plans to re-engineer the iconic JBA Falcon. The relaunch in 2011 introduced the modern JBA Falcon, which integrates BMW components, offering a blend of classic design and contemporary engineering.

Today, JBA Motors continues to produce the JBA Falcon as both a kit and a fully factory-finished car. This model stands as a testament to the brand’s resilience and innovation, combining the timeless appeal of its 1930s-inspired design with the reliability and performance of modern BMW parts. Despite the challenges and transformations, JBA Motors remains a cherished name among classic car enthusiasts and kit car builders alike.
