Our 1958 Austin-Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite is now ready to be won on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website! Head over and get yours today to
Stephanie Penn was the lucky winner of our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite. This wasn’t her first experience with a Frogeye though as her husband had one when they first met.
They ended up running away together with the car and even lived in it for a couple of weeks!
Stephanie recently reached out and said that she thought we might like to see the Frogeye her husband had when they first met. No wonder it was love at first sight!
“He got 100mph out of it down Telegraph Hil near Exeter with three of us on board!”
The story of Stephanie and her Sprite is a beautiful one and one that should be heard in her own words.
If you have memories of a special vehicle, we’d love to share them. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with some photos and why your vehicle means so much to you.
This morning, the lucky winner of our 1958 Austin-Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite was found in our live draw from The Atelier at Bridge Classic Cars.
Live draws are always exciting and this one was no different. The photos below will give you a small glimpse into what goes on behind the scenes when we find the winner of another classic car.
Our 1958 Austin-Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite is now ready to be won on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website!
The bonnet of our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite has been assembled and put back onto the car by classic car technician Jonn.
A new exhaust has also been fitted.
As this beautiful classic will go on to be a competition car through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions, it’s very exciting to see it go through the final list of jobs to be completed before it is won and taken home by its new owner.
Our new interior trimmer, Lydia, has got straight to it by working on our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite. As this will soon be going live on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions Website.
Lydia has been fitting the carpets and door panels to our classic Frogeye and, as you can see from the photos below, they certainly look great and has gone a long way in bringing our Frogeye another step closer to being won very soon.
After the wheels of our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite were refurbished, classic car technician Mauro put them back onto the car.
Refurbished wheels make a big difference to the final look of a classic car and, as you can see from the photos below, our Frogeye wheels are no exception to this.
Our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite will soon be available to win through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.
Classic car technician Alan has been putting the last bit of paint onto our 1958 Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite.
He has been prepping, priming, and painting the bonnet of this future competition car. One of the great things about a Frogeye Sprite is that the bonnet looks very happy to have a new coat of paint, as you can see in the pictures below.
It shouldn’t be long until you see our 1958 Austin Healey Sprite’s smiley face on Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.
Classic car technician Al has continued his work on our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite. He has been painting the various parts of the classic car.
Although being repainted in its original colour, once it leaves the Bridge Classic Cars Paintshop, it will be in a condition that we are much happier with.
Once it moves on to the next stage of its preparation, it will be one step closer to eventually being won through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.
Classic car technician Alan has recently stripped our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite in preparation for it to be painted.
He has continued this process by applying primer to the future Bridge Classic Cars Competitions prize. Once it leaves the paint shop, it will be ready to be won very soon.
It wasn’t too long ago that our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite entered the Bridge Classic Cars workshop after we picked it up from Scotland. This classic Sprite actually belonged to William Gordon, who won the 1958 ‘Frogeye’ we had as a competition car through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.
When he received his prize, he decided that his old car (the one we now have) could move on to new owners. Now that it has been assessed and inspected, work has begun to prepare it to be a competition car in the near future.
It has recently been in the paint shop with classic car technician Alan who has been stripping the car ready for painting, so it looks great for whoever is lucky enough to win it when it goes live.
When we delivered our 1958 Austin-Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite to William Gordon, who had won it through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions, we couldn’t help but notice the Frogeye he already owned parked up in his garage.
The story ended with the Frogeye he won staying with him in Scotland and his former Frogeye coming back to Suffolk with us ready to eventually be offered as a future competition car.
Our (new) 1958 Austin-Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite has arrived at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop and will now be inspected by our team of technicians before being prepped ready for its lucky new owner (who will hopefully be found soon).
When William Gordon won our 1958 Austin-Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions, we took a long drive up to Scotland to deliver his new classic car to him.
When we arrived, it wasn’t long until we noticed another Frogeye quietly poking its head out from inside William’s garage.
What eventually happened was that William’s new Frogeye (that he had recently won) left our trailer, and the Frogeye he already owned was put on the now empty trailer and made the journey back down to Suffolk with us.
Now that it is here in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop, it will undergo a thorough assessment and inspection before hopefully becoming another competition car in the very near future.
