The First Ever Jensen Automobile: “The White Lady”

Customer, and friend of Bridge Classic Cars, Joerg has sent us these wonderful photos of his beautiful Jensen.

Built in 1935, this was the first vehicle ever produced by the Jensen brothers. They named her the White Lady and that name has stuck with the vehicle to this day.

A truly special automobile, This prototype (Chassis number S1/3799) is powered by a 3.6L Ford V8 which is mated to a three speed manual gearbox. Due to the dual-ratio rear end the white lady effectively had six gears.

What a stunning piece of history! We’re pleased to see this vehicle in the hands of such a huge Jensen enthusiast.

1998 BMW M3 Evolution Ready For Paint

Darren, one of our Classic Car Technicians specialising in paintwork has been hard at work preparing this beautiful M3 for a full respray. It’s staying the original Techno Violet Metallic. The preparation phase of a full respray is arguably the most crucial. To achieve the highest quality, mirror-shine finished product, the vehicle surface has to be perfect at this crucial stage.

This M3 will have three coats of the deep violet metallic paint before then having 2 or 3 coats of clear coat to lock in and protect the colour layer.

Once the final clear coat has been applied, Darren will set our paint chamber to heat the paintwork. This allows the clear coat to cure at a set temperature and humidity in an environment free from dust and contaminants.

Even without any paint, this M3 still looks stunning. We can’t wait to reveal the finished product to you all very soon!

1967 Austin Mini 850 Arriving

We’ve got another Austin Mini in the Bridge Classic Cars Paint Shop. This Mini belongs to Team C Racing. The body will need to be welded with new metal, shaped, prepared and then painted either Ocean Blue or Island Blue. We will then be sending it back to team C to continue the restoration.

New Arrival 1980 MG Midget

After inspecting the car in preparation for sale, our Classic Car Technicians have spotted a few fixes that need to be made to get this MG into great working order. Other than a thorough clean, this vehicle will also have the brake system refurbished as well as some small correction to the paintwork.

Once these restorative works have been carried out, this 1980 MG Midget will be available for sale in the Bridge Classic Cars Showroom.
