After classic car technician Tom catalogued the components of our Cobra Project, he got to work removing the engine from this classic car.
Now that the engine is out, it will be refurbished before being returned to the car further along the restoration process.
As you can see from the photos below, it was quite a bit of work but, now that it’s done, things can progress for our Cobra project.
Classic car technician Tom has been going through the long process of cataloguing the components of our AC Cobra project.
His main focus has been on the engine, as this will soon be removed from the vehicle so it can be refurbished before going back into the car at a later date.
This is a very exciting restoration project so we are very much looking forward to seeing it progress through its time here in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.
We have recently started up our AC Cobra for its first test run.
Anytime a project like this gets started, it’s always an exciting time and our Cobra is no exception. Progress will be continued to be made until our AC Cobra is ready to leave the workshop and get back out onto the road.
Work has begun on our very special Cobra projects!
Classic car technician Jonn (with help from Nigel) has been taking a closer look at the car and has begun making a list of things that will need to be addressed during its time in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.
We are in the fortunate position to have an AC Ace, the predecessor to the Cobra also in the workshop. This has allowed us to compare the two models and, as you can see from the photos below, there are some clear similarities between the two.
The list of things to be done may be quite long but, like all of the restoration projects we are currently working on, once complete, the car will look very different to how it does now.
Over the weekend, a very special project arrived at the Bridge Classic Cars Suffolk HQ.
This Cobra project has been in the works for the past 30 years with its previous owner, but now the current owner has bought it to our Pettistree workshop to get the car working and fitted out before then moving onto the next phase of work.
We’re excited to get started on this Cobra and make sure you check out the Bridge Classic Cars news page for more on the Cobra project very soon.
