We’ve recently welcomed this 1959 Jensen 541R into the workshop as a restoration project for someone to take on to turn into their dream Jensen. The beauty of retoration projects like this is that this Jensen is a blank canvas which can be made back to originaly and become a custom classic.

Putting The British Back Into The Jaguar

Having spent a lot of its life across the pond in sunny California, it’s only natural to find American modifications on our 1973 Jaguar E-Type Roadster Series 3, however, now back on home soil, parts such as rubber bumpers can be converted back to British/European standard. James has welded up all the holes and repaired the dents which had previously been filled, resulting in poor symmetry on the front.

Scott has started to to disassemble the front suspension components ready to be refurbished as well.

Pricey has scraped the body shell, removed the under sealer and sound deadening for media blasting. Pricey told us that the condition of the E-Type body is immaculate and holds very little rust for the age of the car.

EADT – April 2021

A great article in the East Anglian Daily Times about one of our recent local winners, Matthew Sudgen and his 1949 Morris Minor Lowlight.

“I didn’t realise at first that I had won, so when they called me I thought it was a wind-up. I only bought one ticket – it was incredible. It’s brilliant to drive. It’s very rustic and very different to drive than modern cars.”

Matthew tells us he’s taken it out a few times already and is loving it.

In a wonderful cyclical move, the Morris Minor that started its life in Ipswich and then moved around the UK has found its way back to Ipswich with its new owner.

We wish you many more happy miles, Matthew!

Land Rover Gets A New Gear Box

We’ve just had the gearbox reconditioned and refitted into our 1964 Land Rover Series IIa. We recently had some trouble with the gearbox seizing due to the teeth from the third gear falling off. We sent the gearbox off to Last Transmission to have it rebuilt.

After receiving the gearbox back, Scott and Ady were tasked with lowering the gearbox back in place through the centre column of the Land Rover. Using their initiative, they set up our small engine crane to help lift it in place.

Now the gearbox has been refitted with no extra complications, Scott has been re-fitting the panels and seats ready for the team to take it out for its pre-launch photoshoot.
