It was only a few weeks ago we waved goodbye to our beautiful 1957 MGA but it seems it’s already settled in with new owners,
Today, we were being reunited with a old friend of Bridge Classic Cars, our 1957 MGA that we restored last year.
Mr and Mrs Fry have reluctantly decided to sell her and thankfully for us we were notified prior to it being advertised to see whether we would be interested in taking back the keys…we were delighted.
So off up the A14 I went at 4am in the morning. Seems very early to be collecting a car from a customer’s house I know but they had some event they were keen to be at and wanted to be on the road for 8am. Apparently there’s something happening this weekend at Silverstone, some Formula 1 event!
So we welcome back the beautiful 1957 MGA that we lovingly restored back in 2015.
Prior to Bridge Classic Cars collecting the keys to our lovely 1957 MGA, the previous owner had lovingly documented the work that had be carried out.
It is so good to see the history of these vehicles and even better to see the hair styles and clothing!!
It was only a few weeks ago we waved goodbye to our beautiful 1957 MGA but it seems it’s already settled in with new owners, Mr and Mrs Fry.
As we were gifted with a wonderful weekend of sunshine it seems everyone was out enjoying themselves, we saw plenty of classics on the road ourselves and it was lovely to receive a text from the Fry’s with some images of their day out in the MGA.
Here they are outside the Chateau Impney Hotel in Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire.
Carl and Lesley Fry have travelled down from Droitwich to see the final few preparations being completed on their 1957 MGA.
It’s been a very busy day today at Bridge Classic Cars, busy but very fulfilling. It was the day Asa and Tommy fitted set to task fitting the brand new roof to the MGA.
I, on the other hand, had a busy day in front of the computer. Amazingly I heard no swearing coming from the workshop and by the end of the day she had her roof fitted so all in all…a success!
MGA now nearing completion, all bright work that has either been re-chromed or renewed. The instrument dials are now away for refurbishment.
Interior fitting next week for the end of January full completion and ready for a new owner.
The final few tweaks to the paintwork the MGA is now back from the paint shop and ready for a complete re-fit.
The MGA was bought as a part restored. The paintwork we say at Bridge is “nice from afar but far from nice” and certainly not to our standard at Bridge Classic Cars.
Our paint shop removed all the paint to bare metal and is in the final stages of preparation for re- painting.
