Off to a new home – Delivering our 1972 MGB Roadster to our lucky winner

Recently, Peter won our 1972 MGB Roadster through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions. But before the team took the trip down to deliver the car to him personally, the workshop checked it all over and then it was handed over to our transport team to get loaded up safe and sound in our enclosed trailer for the journey to its new home.

Once we arrived, Peter met us excited to meet his new pride and joy – and raring to go on the cars maiden voyage under his ownership. You’ll be able to see the video on this very soon over on our YouTube channel.

Road Test and Checks on our 1972 MGB Roadster

Jon has been continuing to work on our 1972 MGB Roadster ahead of its launch as one of the classics you could win through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.

The next phase of Jon’s work was to get the glovebox on the classic sports car open, which involved stripping down and rebuilding the lock after one of the internal pins had dropped. After that, he could take the car out on its road test.

After pulling the car out of our Pettistree workshop, Jon got the car fired up in order to carry out mixture and idle speed adjustments before heading out on the open road to test the car. However, during the test, the car cut out multiple times and would not restart until the ignition switch was grabbed and shaken. After that, the car would fire back up. So, Jon got the car back to the workshop and tightened down the connections in the switch as well as the main power feed and then retested the car. All was ok after test.

Collecting Our MGB

Our 1972 MGB Roadster was recently collected and transported by Tony to the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.

Now that it is here, the team will thoroughly inspect and assess this beautiful classic.

Coming soon to Bridge Classic Cars

Over the next couple of weeks we’ll see lots of new classics arriving at our workshops, all believed to be in fantastic condition so we are not expecting to have to carry out much work on these…but I’m sure they’ll be something!

First up, we have a super impressive Fiat X1/9 Bertone. First registered in 1986 the car was once part of a very well known collection of classic cars. The Robert Furniss Riding collection was featured quite heavily in the national press after Robert sadly passed away leaving his collection to H&H classic auction for it to be sold off, with all proceeds going to the RNLI.

The entire collection made over £1.4 million.

Part of the collection was his 1986 Fiat X1/9 Bertone but instead of this being sold off in auction, it was gifted to his friend who has been looking after it ever since.

Believed to be the only Vanden Plas in this colour combination. We believe the car requires very little work but we will put it through the workshops to get her tip top and ready for competition.

Finally, our beautifully restored 1972 MG B Roadster. This will most certainly be a popular one in our competitions. We all love an MG B Roadster and being so wonderfully presented, coming in to the summer, this will be a perfect competition prize.
