Managing Director – Bridge Classic Cars

Our stunning 1972 Jaguar E-Type Series 3 is with us again for a range of repairs, fixes and upgrades.

To start with, the car’s not running. Therefore, our engine experts have her up on the ramp ready for closer inspection.

Dave, one of most experienced classic car technicians is changing the ignition. Once this is completed the engine should be able to be fired up. This will enable the team to start with various other fixes.

Tom, one of our specialist classic car technicians has repaired a couple of the cars more minor niggles. “There was a problem with the handbrake light” Tom explains. “We managed to tweak the switch and have sorted that out.”

Tom’s also investigated an issue with the accelerator panel and the windscreen washers. Both of which should now be rectified.

A new chrome rear bumper has also been fitted by Tom and Paul this week. The bumper was supplied by the customer and expertly fitted by our specialist technicians.

The car also has an oil leak. Tom has cleaned under the car, to give our engine expert Ady a better look at where the oils coming from. ” I suspect it’s coming from a washer between the engine and the oil relief valve” Ady’s told us.

We won’t know whether the fixes are successful until we get her engine back up and running. We have every confidence in our classic car experts. Let’s get this beautiful little sports car back on the road soon!
