Tom recently took the long drive from the workshop here in Suffolk, all the way up to Scotland to deliver our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite to lucky winner William Gordon. William was selected as the winner when his ticket number, 1486, was randomly selected during the live draw held on 13th April 2023.
As the drive took Tom hundreds of miles up North, we used his trip to Scotland to acquire some new additions to the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions collection. The first new addition actually came from William himself in the form of the ‘Frogeye’ Sprite that he already owned.
We are now organising the transport of William’s blue ‘Frogeye’ back to the workshop ready for us to get it ready to become a future competition car.
After staying in the Radstone Hotel Larkhill, Tom visited Paul Williamson Cars to pick up the second future competition car of his trip. Before that though, he enjoyed his hotel stay and made sure he was fuelled up and ready for another day of car collecting!
The second competition car that Tom went on to collect was our 1973 Triumph Spitfire. This made the journey back with Tom and is now in the workshop waiting for the team to assess it ready for it to be won in the very near future.
There are always classic vehicles coming into the Bridge Classic Cars workshop. However, every now and again, multiple vehicles all show up at the same time.
After a successful day at auction recently, we received a delivery of several vehicles that we were very excited to welcome into the workshop. In the back of the car transporter was our 1958 Austin Healey Sprite, our 1969 Morgan 4/4 1600, and our 1998 Lotus Elise S1.
We are looking forward to sharing more information on these beautiful classic cars very soon!
Another stunning car has arrived at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop in the form of our 1958 Austin Healey Sprite, commonly known as the Frogeye thanks to its prominent bonnet-mounted headlights.
After initially being supplied to America, it came back to the UK in 1963. The previous owner has owned the car since 2008 and has completed various modifications to the engine and gearbox to help make it more usable on modern roads.
Our 1958 Austin Healey Sprite is a beautiful classic car and we are very excited to have it with us in the workshop.
