1972 Jaguar E-Type V12 Series 3

Slick New Oil Filter For Our E-Type

This stunning V12 Jaguar E-Type is being worked on today in the Bridge Classic Cars Workshop. The old, original oil filter wasn’t quite up to the job of keeping this beautiful V12 singing.

To fit an upgraded, modern oil filter we have had to adapt the oil filter housing to accommodate the larger cartridge-style filter.

Whilst in our workshop we have fitted a customer supplied bumper and addressed a few other running issues.

Reaching 46,000 thanks to the Instagram love at Olympia

We’ve had an amazing weekend at Olympia Historic Automobile Fair and Auction.

With our 1956 Jensen 541 taking pride of place beside the auction area, our 1972 Jaguar E-Type V12 attracting the largest crowd, our 1972 Fiat 500L seemed to get the most photographic attention and our 1959 Austin Healey Sprite getting the best feedback from auctioneer Guy, the weekend couldn’t have been better for Bridge Classic Cars.

Not only did we receive fantastic feedback over the weekend but a quick search on Instagram showed that our cars were potentially seen by over 46000 Instagram followers. We can not thank the visitors of Olympia and the Instagram members enough for their amazing photos.

It’s lovely to see our cars being photographed and enjoyed by many others…

Off to Olympia Historic Automobile Fair and Auction

Apologies to anyone on Norwich Road in Ipswich this morning as we unexpectedly slowed down the traffic whilst loading our fantastic classics ready for the trip to Olympia, Kensington for this weekend’s Olympia Historic Automobile Fair and Auction.

It was lovely to see so many people come out of their homes to take a look at the cars being loaded…hopefully it wasn’t to shout at us for causing disruption.

Here we have our Jaguar E-Type V12 and Jensen 541 waiting patiently for the sign from Robin at Russell’s Transport to load on. As you can see the Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite and the Fiat 500L got the top bunk.

Hopefully we’ll see some of you this weekend at Olympia, we’ll probably be somewhere around the The Whisky Exchange Masterclasses.

Thanks again if you were along Norwich Road today. If you were late for work, just blame Bridge Classic Cars.

New pictures of our 1972 Jaguar E-Type V12

When the rush hour traffic died down on Norwich Road this morning, we decided to give our 1972 Jaguar E-Type V12 a good run. This was a great opportunity to get some new pictures of her out on the Suffolk roads.

Photos found from 1998

When clearing out the glove box of our 1972 Jaguar E-Type we came across some old photographs taken of the car in 1998.

It’s great to keep old documentation of the vehicle, however minor you feel it is at the time it all helps to build the history of the car.

We love taking lots of photographs here at Bridge Classic Cars.

These were taken over 18 years ago, here is our 1972 Jaguar E-Type sitting proudly on someone’s driveway, looking lovely!

Our 1972 Jaguar E-Type has arrived

Our 1972 Jaguar E-Type V12 Series 3 arrived at the Bridge Classic Cars workshops bright and early this morning, having travelled down through the night from the highlands.

Now awaiting preparation she will soon be available for sale. For more information and to view our full range of cars visit our for sale section.

Here we are having taken her out on a little spin to make sure she feels and runs as she should.

On it’s way to Bridge Classic Cars from Scotland

Jaguar Etype V12 Series 3. This lovely car is soon to be on it’s way to us from Scotland and although we will be going through the car prior to sale it has been sympathetically restored and to a very high standard.

We will be fitting a new headlining and adding a few touches to the trim.

Finished in a deep claret with magnolia leather she has only covered 74000 miles from new and comes with her history file.

She will be fully serviced prior to sale and come with a full mot.
