The lucky winner of our 1975 MGB GT V8, Anthony Bannon, took delivery of his classic car earlier today.
Anthony’s ticket number of 714 was randomly selected as the winner during our live draw held on 2nd February 2023.
Everyone at Bridge Classic Cars would like to congratulate Anthony on becoming the new owner of our 1975 MGB GT V8, we hope you enjoy it!
We love an MGB here at Bridge Classic Cars!
Another winner was found for our previous V8 MGB but, don’t worry if you didn’t win that one as you have another opportunity with the latest draw from Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.
Entry is open and tickets are now available for our latest 1975 MGB GT V8.
Classic car technician Steve has continued his work on our 1975 MGB GT V8. As this will soon be a competition car on Bridge Classic Cars Competitions, the workshop team are making sure it is working as it should and is ready to be won by its new owner in the near future.
Steve noticed a dent in the sump which he removed and repaired before reinstalling back onto this beautiful classic MG. As well as fixing the dent in the sump, Steve also fitted a new timing cover and water pump rear housing. This was to replace the corroded and leaking housing that Steve found on the car during his initial inspection and assessment.
The engine of this classic car has been put back together now too which has given the car a big leap forwards toward being ready to leave us and get back out on the road.
Steve wasn’t done yet though as he went on to fit a new exhaust mount and clamp as well as new rear shackle bushes too.
Work continues on our 1975 MGB GT V8 and it won’t be long before it goes live on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website ready for someone to win. This will no doubt be a very popular competition but, until then, our workshop team will continue getting it ready for its new owner.
Classic car technician Steve has been looking after our 1975 MGB GT V8 since it first arrived at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.
After completing his initial assessment of the car, and resolving some of the issues he found, Steve has been working to diagnose an electrical fault with the high beam.
Steve’s investigations ultimately led him to trace the fault back to dirty contacts on a light switch. These contacts have now been cleaned and checked and the fault looks to have been resolved.
Despite sounding like a relatively small job in comparison to a full restoration, it’s jobs like this that end up making a huge difference to the overall finish and drivability of the classic cars we work on here at Bridge Classic Cars.
Our 1975 MGB GT V8 will go on to be a competition car at Bridge Classic Cars Competitions and we are excited for a new owner to be found for this beautiful classic car, so keep an eye on the competition’s website if you want to win it for yourself.
Our 1975 MGB GT V8 has been undergoing its initial checks and assessment by classic car technician Steve.
When any classic vehicle arrives at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop, it is thoroughly inspected and assessed to identify any restoration work that may need to be carried out before the car is ready to move on through its restoration journey, back to its owner, or over to Bridge Classic Cars Competitions for someone to win.
Some of the tasks that were completed to make sure everything is as it should be on this beautiful classic car include Steve checking and cleaning the rear brakes as well as cleaning the sump and engine gasket surfaces before reassembling them.
While Steve was working on our 1975 MGB GT V8, he noticed that there appeared to be coolant leaking from the car. To find the cause of the leak, he removed the inlet manifold and water pump rear housing. Once these were removed, Steve was able to identify that there were actually two leaks – one coming from the inlet manifold gasket and the other from the steel heater pipe under the manifold.
Steve’s inspection and assessment of our MGB GT V8 will continue until he is completely satisfied that the car is ready to move on to the next chapter of its story.
If you can see yourself as the new owner of our 1975 MGB GT V8, then keep an eye on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website as, at some point in the near future, it will be one of the impressive classic vehicles you can win for yourself.
In the meantime though, it will continue its stay in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop while Steve and the rest of the workshop team continue making sure it drives as good as it looks!
Everyone here at Bridge Classic cars loves an MG. We have had lots come and go in the past so it’s always exciting to see a new one come into the workshop.
The latest addition is our 1975 MGB GT V8.
As you can see from the photos below, it is a beautiful car and will soon be back out on the road for everyone to enjoy.
