Collecting an old friend

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]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.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”4996,4997,4998,4999,5000,5001,5002,5003,5004,5005,5006,5007,5008,5009,5010,5011,5012,5013,5014,5015,5016,5017,5018,5019,5020,5021,5022,5023,5024,5025,5026,5027,5028,4995″][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Our 1957 MGA Pre Bridge Classic Cars

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]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!!

Mr and Mrs Fry’s first weekend out in their 1957 MGA

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.

Welcome…the brand new MGA roof

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 final preparation for paint

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]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.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”2493,2494,2495,2496,2497,2498,2499,2500,2501,2502″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
