The prestigious Salon Privé Concours d’Elegance was held today at Blenheim Palace. The event showcases the rarest and most significant classic cars and bikes in the world.

What a pleasure it is to see our gorgeous 1949 MG YT make an appearance by personal invitation.

This stunning piece of history was a full restoration project of ours. From a complete engine rebuild, to an interior overhaul, we’ve transformed this 1940’s beauty into the elegant classic she is today.

This car was a childhood dream for a former customer of ours, Mr MacDonald. It was one of the 877 produced. Sadly, by the time this iconic car was shipped to the UK, Mr McDonald had passed.

Although he never got to drive his lifelong dream classic car, Mr McDonald’s son has upheld his fathers vision and seen the full restoration through to completion.

We’re sure Mr McDonald would be so proud to see his 1949 MG YT in the very colours he chose, glimmering in the Oxfordshire sunshine this morning.

The event itself is filled with classic cars, champagne and English tea and of course; the highly anticipated Salon Privé Concours d’Elegance awards themselves. Although our 1949 MG YT didn’t win, we’re all incredibly proud of the entire team at Bridge Classic Cars for completing such a fantastic restoration. She’s certainly a winner in our eyes!
