1973 Jaguar E-Type V12 Series 3

Suns Out – Some of Our Projects Waiting to Go Home

With the weather being perfect last week, we thought we would snap some photos of a handful of classic cars lounging in the sun. Some waiting for collection, some just arrived.

Our restoration workshops at the Bridge Classic Cars HQ are always busy. A constant stream of cars coming in for our team to work on or going back to their owners to be enjoyed so as Nick walked past the eclectic row of cars lining the side of our workshop, he thought he’d grab a few photos to show them off.

Our 1973 Jaguar V12 on its way to East Lothian

Ronnie from Karr Solutions arrived this evening already pre-loaded with a Porsche that he was due to deliver on his return to Scotland. He had space for one more as he took away our 1973 Jaguar V12 to join her new owners Lorna and Roddy in East Lothian, Scotland.

Perfect timing to enjoy the E-Type…ready for the summer!

Delivering and Collecting in Brighton

It was a long day for Craig and Dave as they set off for what should’ve been a relatively easy trip to Brighton. We had our 1973 Jaguar E-Type to deliver and returning with our 1949 Bentley Mark VI Special and 1965 Amphicar. The journey there seemed relatively trouble free but the same couldn’t be said for the return leg.

What should’ve been a 3 hour trip turned into a 7 hour trip with the M25 around Dartford being at a stand still for hours.

It wasn’t all bad as we had this beauty sitting beside us for the entire journey, a stunning Jaguar E-Type roadster. We were very impressed with the fact that she kept up with the modern day traffic congestion brilliantly, covering approximately 2 miles in 3 hours, that’s good going!

First off the trailer was our 1973 Jaguar E-Type (WWB 493L) looking glorious in the Brighton sunshine.

Then on to loading up the 1949 Bentley Mark VI Special onto Dave’s open trailer.

Before finally loading up the 1965 Amphicar into Craig’s covered trailer.

1973 Jaguar E-Type Service and Detailed

Our 1973 Jaguar E-Type 2+2 Series 3 arrived with us needing very little. She was very much a usable car so a quick re-tune to the engine before a thorough clean and detail and she was good to go.

Her final destination was Brighton so we were all in bright and early this morning (5am to be precise) to get her loaded up before Craig and Dave set off on the journey.

More images of our Jaguar E-Type have been found online

The internet is such a wonderful tool.

We’ve just received an email from Mr Alan Sinclair, he happened to be looking for wheel adapters online and came across another few images of our 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series 3, registration WWB493L.

Back in the day it was very difficult to add to the previous history of a car but now thanks to the internet, images often pop up when you least expect them and it is always wonderful to see where you car has been in a previous life.

Thanks Alan.

Coming soon – 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series 3

Currently en-route down from Scotland, later this week Bridge Classic Cars will be welcoming our 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series 3.

Already set for its new home, we’ll be guiding her through our workshops for a few minor alterations and for a general check over before she heads off Brighton to start a new life on he beautiful south coast.
