1932 Lagonda

Tailored to Suit – The Tonneau and Hood Cover on the 1932 Lagonda Tourer

The trim team at Bridge Classic Cars have carefully tailored the new tonneau and hood cover specifically for the 1932 Lagonda Tourer in with us.

Lydia, one of our trimmers, has worked on refining the patterns for both pieces and in terms of the hood cover revised the entire piece to envelope the entire hood frame within the piece. These have been checked and double-checked before being transferred onto mohair.

Once on the final material, Lydia could make tight-fitting pieces perfectly tailored to suit the pre-war convertible with a single zip running up the centre to close the interior once the clips are pressed onto the body.

Behind the Scenes – Live Draw of the 1985 Jaguar Sovereign V12

First of all, congratulations to David! He won the 1985 Jaguar Sovereign V12 during last night’s draw with ticket number 2631 but, along with the live draw the team gave all of our audience a look around some of the other cars stored in our new building.

The Jaguar Sovereign V12 was the main event of the evening but it was surrounded by either current or possible future competition cars and some amazing restoration/customer cars we keep on site. Hayley and Freddie went all through the classic Jaguar showing everyone watching along on the live stream the fine details and modern luxuries which came as standard when the Sovereign V12 was new.

Then, Hayley handed it over to Nick who went through a little bit about our new online classic sales platform MyClassics. An overview of how, why, what and where it exactly is and that it sits with the enthusiasts at heart, whether that be buying or selling a classic it was designed just for them.

A quick look around the fantastic and eclectic mix of classics stored in our new building from a customers 1932 Lagonda Tourer in for our incredible trim team to work on all the way to a modern Triumph Street Twin motorcycle.

But, everyone watching along wanted to know the answer to the ultimate question which hung in the air. Who did the 1985 Sovereign V12 belong to? We also wanted to find out. Heading over to the screen, the team began that process.

Using our pre-published entry lists (these are generated after ticket sales close or the competition sells out) the team verified that the tickets were within the range of between 1 and 3333. Then, it was over to the Google Random Number Generator to let lady luck take control. Hayley set the criteria and as the screen became awash with whirring numbers, the anticipation rose.

Finally, it landed on a number. 2631.

Consulting the entry list, that particular ticket number had been purchased by David Graham. The new owner of the 1985 Jaguar Sovereign V12. So, as we do with all our live draws we gave him a ring to give him the good news.

When David answered, he was thrilled. He had entered for the Sovereign after always wanting a classic to join in with his friends who restore and enjoy classics up in Scotland and now he has his Jaguar V12 to get involved in the fun!

Refinements – Refining the Tonneau Cover on the 1932 Lagonda 3 Litre Tourer

Ahead of its final version, the trim team at Bridge Classic Cars have worked on refining the shape and form of the tonneau cover on the 1932 Lagonda Tourer.

The team made a draft of the cover out of paper, which was then transferred onto vinyl which was used to check for stretch and overall fitment. Once the team and the client was happy with the overall shape and quality, it could then be refined further to perfectly tailor the cover to the car.

Lydia, one of our trimmers, has worked on making sure the stitches and seems all fall and meet in the right place for the best result. Also, checking to make sure that the opening to the clips that hold the cover down are in the right place and not overly sized in order for the cover to remain tight once on the car.

After this, it was transferred onto the black mohair which will make up the final version of this bespoke piece for the car.

Tailored – New Tonneau and Hood Cover for the 1932 Lagonda Tourer Mocked Up

The trim team at Bridge Classic Cars have worked on perfectly tailoring the new tonneau and hood cover for the 1932 Lagonda Tourer.

To begin with, our trimmer Lydia made paper templates to create a rough pattern to work from before was transferred onto black vinyl as part of the drafting process. This allowed the trim team to refine the pieces more and more until it was a perfect fit across the interior and the hood frame of the classic Lagonda.

With these templates now where the team needed to be, they can work on creating the final pieces for the beautiful pre-war tourer.

This Just In – 1932 Lagonda 3 Litre

The breath-taking 1932 Lagonda Tourer has arrived at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop for our restoration teams to begin work on the car.

The first team will be our in-house trim shop, which has been tasked with hand-making a tonneau cover for the classic pre-war Lagonda. The team have also been asked to create a bespoke hood envelope for the foldable roof of the car.

Then, it will be handed over to the paint and body team to address some scratches in the bodywork of the classic Lagonda.
