Our 1988 Ford Escort RS Turbo has had quite the interesting back story.
Originally from the sunny south of France, it was picked up and restored by its second owner Sean Swift who also bought the white escort pictured below but found it was in such a poor condition that restoring it would leave him at a loss.
Sean then brought them back to the UK where he started his beautiful renovation of the grey RS Turbo which made its way to us, with very few miles on the clock.
Unsurprisingly we’ve had multiple offers from the team to run it in…
This is how the RS used to look before is renovation:
And this is how it looks now, after Sean’s clever handiwork and a photoshoot with our marketing team:
On Monday shot the 1988 Ford Escort RS Turbo with our friend and talented model, Carnell Cook at Bentwaters. We were incredibly lucky with the weather as it managed to stay dry and clear throughout the afternoon and with the addition of some artistic smoke grenades, our marketing team shot some stunning visuals. You’ll begin to see the photos and videos appear throughout our social media pages.
This beautiful 5 litre 2015 Mustang GT is the newest addition to our Hanger storage collection. We’re looking after this customers car for the winter so it’ll be tucked away as part of our storage services. It really is a stunning modern car.
This week we’ve welcomed a selection of new vehicles into the Bridge Classic Car family including the 1974 Lime Green VW Beetle, the 1994 Land Rover Range Rover TDI, our new Mercedes transportation lorry and an original Chevron B-20. The Range Rover and Beetle are set to be competition cars however we are yet to decide the fate of our exciting and rare Chevron.
This week we also delivered the Triumph TR4 to the lucky winner Adrian Harcus and wife, Aileen, in Aberdeen. We’re excited to see what plans they have for their new TR4!
Our friend and trust chrome specialist visited Bridge Classics HQ today to drop off some beautifully crafted chrome pieces for our recent blue Jaguar E-Type series 3. Tony Wyatt from his self titled polishing company works on providing us with the best and shiniest chrome parts for our restorations. Today when we arrived, we came in his stunning 3 litre Rover which itself has his handiwork on the front.
This fully restored RS Turbo was being stored within our Vehicle Storage Hangar, however when the owner decided to offer the vehicle up for sale, we had to buy it.
Expect to see this car live on www.bridgeclassiccarscompetitions.co.uk within the coming weeks.
