[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Every classic car that comes through the doors of Bridge Classic Cars has a story, in fact every classic car you see on the road today has a story. Each and every story is unique and this one is certainly that…

The Jaguar E-Type is one of the most iconic British cars ever to have graced the roads and our 1971 V12 comes with an exceptional story.

Before arriving in the UK, the previous owner had made some very unusual changes to the vehicle. We believe the intention of the changes was to convert the vehicle into a drag or racing car. Although some may consider converting a beautiful classic E-Type into a racing car is madness, the changes had been carried out to an exceptionally high standard; brackets had been fitted in places that t0 the inexperienced eye would easily be mistaken for a factory fitted bracket.

In order to restore this beautiful machine back to its former glory, first we are having remove all of the work that has been carried out so far. This is a huge job but our Tommy has been given the project and he will oversee all of the works required to bring it back to its original form.

Her are some images of the welding work that has been carried out so far. New panels have been ordered and are awaiting delivery so the work you can see so far has all been carried out on the original bodywork.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”8846,8847,8848,8849,8850,8851,8852,8853,8854,8855,8856,8857″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
