Engine Rebuild

This immaculate looking engine belongs to a former visitor of Bridge Classic Cars. Since buying our 1980 Porsche 911 SC, the engine is undergoing a full restoration. These pictures don’t even do it justice, how pristine does it look?!

Assessing work required on our 1980 Porsche 911

Our 1980 Porsche 911 has been dry stored and off the road for 4 years now and unfortunately it is evident that it has suffered in areas and most certainly requires attention.

Our original plan was to run her through an MOT to pick up any areas that would deem her to be un-roadworthy but raising her on the ramp we can see immediately the areas that will require welding.

Some decisions will need to be made as to the future of the car and when work is likely to start but this may end up being a full restoration.

Although it may not seem good news right now, once restored, this stunner will be back on the road and admired by everyone!

Collecting our 1980 Porsche 911

Having been dry stored but untouched for 3 to 4 years we are hopefully that our 1980 Porsche 911 recommission will be a relatively straight forward project.

There are remedial bodywork, paint and wiring issues that we may look to address but step one would be to carry out a pre-MOT check to decipher what immediate work would need to be actioned in order to get the car road legal.
