1967 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Sofa

Jaguar E-Type Sofa: available for sale

The ultimate statement piece for your home, office or workplace.

How would you like to help design and own one of the most luxurious automotive pieces ever to be produced?

Renowned for our world class classic car restorations, Bridge Classic Cars are producing the very first Chesterfield sofa and drinks display combined, using an original 1967 Jaguar E-Type bodyshell.

We are now in the design stages of the rebuild but have plenty of opportunity for the new owner to put their mark/stamp on the design process. Interior colour choices, drinks cabinet design, materials, colours can all be decided.

This would make the perfect luxury furniture piece for anyone with the space to display and the desire to own this one off-piece.

If you are interested in purchasing our Jaguar E-Type sofa and work alongside us in building the very first and possibly only Jaguar E-Type sofa in existed then please feel free to get in touch.

Jaguar E-Type: Project Sofa – blasted and ready for repair

Unfortunately, due to our current workload, our 1967 Jaguar E-Type has taken a bit of a back seat (pardon the pun) so we can concentrate on various projects we are currently working on.

At some stage in the not to distant future the repair works will begin on our E-Type body shell as we start to bring the idea of a 1-off sofa to life.

Jaguar E-Type Sofa off to the blasters

We’ve not spent much time on our Jaguar E-Type sofa of late but today we’ve pulled it out in preparation for the blasters to work their magic.

Next time we see her she’ll be primed and most probably (based on the pictures) a bit more of a challenge for us to deal with!!

Introducing our 1966 Jaguar E-type Sofa concept…

An idea thought up by Craig; what to do with a 1967 Jaguar E-Type body shell that is a little different to the norm.

Tucked up in our yard we had a very sorry looking 1967 Jaguar E-Type body shell. The shell comes with no V5 or registration documentation so the costly exercise of a full restoration will automatically be devalued because of this fact.

In the past we have seen tables made from engine blocks, we’ve seen desks made from bonnets but to date I have not come across a beautifully produced sofa, complete with an opening drinks cabinet made from an original Jaguar E-Type.

We are only in the design stages of the currently we have some fantastic ideas of what we could envisage the end result being and who would like such a wonderful creation…certainly a one off!

Firstly, and reluctantly Tommy has chopped our E-Type in half, keeping the rear half along with the boot lid and removing the front section. “At this stage I feel the guys are not fully on board with my idea but I’m sure I can convince them”

 

Concept: Jaguar E-Type Sofa and Drinks Display

Whilst having a coffee in the office, looking out of the window at our 1967 Jaguar E-Type body shell, an idea popped into my head.

Could we make a sofa out of a Jaguar E-Type?

I’m no Picasso but here is the first draft of what I had in mind when I come up with my idea.

A Chesterfield style sofa built out of the rear of the car with the boot area being a drinks display that opens like a normal car would. We would have all of the exterior furniture you would normally find on the E-Type including the wheels and tyres!
