After 14 years sitting in a garage, this wonderful 1958 MG Magnette has been fully re-commissioned by Bridge Classic Cars and now it’s time for her to go home and enjoy the sunny Suffolk weather.
Our wonderful 1958 MG Magnette is finally back on the road.
Having been stored in a dry, air conditioned garage for over 14 years, it was initially brought in to Bridge Classic Cars with the main objective being to get her road worthy once again.
As with all recommissioning projects it is difficult to know exactly how easy a job can be until you start working on it. Although the car was fully restored 14 years ago it had not moved an inch since.
Luckily, nothing too serious to contend with but still more work than you think it is. Nevertheless, she’s up and running and looking lovely outside the Bridge Classic Cars workshops in Ipswich.
She’s now ready for a trip back to Woodbridge to enjoy the summer shows for years to come.
So we’ve been hard at work this week on the 1958 MG Magnette.
Mark, our newest technician, joined us at the beginning of the week and has got stuck with this recommissioning project being his main priority.
So far on the MG Magnette Mark has worked on the following:
So far so good on a car that has been sitting dormant for over 15 years.
On Monday Paul Johnson – Professional Mobile Valeting arrives to work his magic on the bodywork.
It’s been over 15 years since our incredible 1958 MG Magnette has seen the sunshine and been out on the road.
Here we are rolling it out for the very first time.
Amazingly she rolled effortlessly!
Now it’s time to head back to the Bridge Classic Cars workshop to start work on the recommissioning project.
Having been stored in a dry, air conditioned garage, completely untouched for over 15 years, Mr G of Capel St Mary has decided to get his father’s fully restored 1958 MG Magnette back on the road, hopefully in time for a few classic cars shows this year.
So he called upon the expertise of us here at Bridge Classic Cars.
