Managing Director – Bridge Classic Cars

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This morning we welcomed the newest addition to the Bridge Classic Cars family.

Our 1949 MG YT (T is for Tourer) has been owned by the same family from new and has spent it’s entire life over in Cyprus.

The only information we were originally given was “The vehicle has been in the family since new. The vehicle which is cream in colour has been used as a family car. The engine requires a rebore and is out of the car at the present moment. The upholstery and soft top was renovated in Lincoln Green leather just over 7 years ago”

Now in the hands of its proud new owner, Mr MacDonald has been on the look out for some time for an MG Y so when this came available on eBay he was determined to get his hands on it.

She docked in Felixstowe last week from Cyprus and has just arrived with us here in our Ipswich workshop for a full appraisal ready for the full restoration to commence.

Even Mike, owner of NTG (one of the UK’s largest suppliers of MG parts) was excited to see this car, as soon as we told him of the history. He paid us a special visit this morning to have a good look over her, even before we had chance to get her inside!

She’ll soon be brought through our workshops for a full appraisal but even though she may look a little sorry for herself right now I think it is safe to say this is a fantastic little find for Mr MacDonald.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”7700,7701,7702,7703,7704,7705,7706,7707,7708,7709,7710,7711,7712,7713,7714,7715,7716,7717″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
