Frogeye Carpets

Our new interior trimmer, Lydia, has got straight to it by working on our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite. As this will soon be going live on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions Website.

Lydia has been fitting the carpets and door panels to our classic Frogeye and, as you can see from the photos below, they certainly look great and has gone a long way in bringing our Frogeye another step closer to being won very soon.

Refurbished Wheels

After the wheels of our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite were refurbished, classic car technician Mauro put them back onto the car.

Refurbished wheels make a big difference to the final look of a classic car and, as you can see from the photos below, our Frogeye wheels are no exception to this.

Our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite will soon be available to win through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.

Painting Our Frogeye Bonnet

Classic car technician Alan has been putting the last bit of paint onto our 1958 Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite.

He has been prepping, priming, and painting the bonnet of this future competition car. One of the great things about a Frogeye Sprite is that the bonnet looks very happy to have a new coat of paint, as you can see in the pictures below.

It shouldn’t be long until you see our 1958 Austin Healey Sprite’s smiley face on Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.

A Frogeye In The Paint Shop

Classic car technician Al has continued his work on our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite. He has been painting the various parts of the classic car.

Although being repainted in its original colour, once it leaves the Bridge Classic Cars Paintshop, it will be in a condition that we are much happier with.

Once it moves on to the next stage of its preparation, it will be one step closer to eventually being won through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.

Paint Prep

Classic car technician Alan has recently stripped our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite in preparation for it to be painted.

He has continued this process by applying primer to the future Bridge Classic Cars Competitions prize. Once it leaves the paint shop, it will be ready to be won very soon.

Painting Our Frogeye

It wasn’t too long ago that our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite entered the Bridge Classic Cars workshop after we picked it up from Scotland. This classic Sprite actually belonged to William Gordon, who won the 1958 ‘Frogeye’ we had as a competition car through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.

When he received his prize, he decided that his old car (the one we now have) could move on to new owners. Now that it has been assessed and inspected, work has begun to prepare it to be a competition car in the near future.

It has recently been in the paint shop with classic car technician Alan who has been stripping the car ready for painting, so it looks great for whoever is lucky enough to win it when it goes live.

Another Frogeye Enters The Workshop

When we delivered our 1958 Austin-Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite to William Gordon, who had won it through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions, we couldn’t help but notice the Frogeye he already owned parked up in his garage.

The story ended with the Frogeye he won staying with him in Scotland and his former Frogeye coming back to Suffolk with us ready to eventually be offered as a future competition car.

Our (new) 1958 Austin-Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite has arrived at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop and will now be inspected by our team of technicians before being prepped ready for its lucky new owner (who will hopefully be found soon).

1 Frogeye Out & 1 Frogeye In

When William Gordon won our 1958 Austin-Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions, we took a long drive up to Scotland to deliver his new classic car to him.

When we arrived, it wasn’t long until we noticed another Frogeye quietly poking its head out from inside William’s garage.

What eventually happened was that William’s new Frogeye (that he had recently won) left our trailer, and the Frogeye he already owned was put on the now empty trailer and made the journey back down to Suffolk with us.

Now that it is here in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop, it will undergo a thorough assessment and inspection before hopefully becoming another competition car in the very near future.

A Busy Trip To Scotland

Tom recently took the long drive from the workshop here in Suffolk, all the way up to Scotland to deliver our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite to lucky winner William Gordon. William was selected as the winner when his ticket number, 1486, was randomly selected during the live draw held on 13th April 2023.

As the drive took Tom hundreds of miles up North, we used his trip to Scotland to acquire some new additions to the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions collection. The first new addition actually came from William himself in the form of the ‘Frogeye’ Sprite that he already owned.

We are now organising the transport of William’s blue ‘Frogeye’ back to the workshop ready for us to get it ready to become a future competition car.

After staying in the Radstone Hotel Larkhill, Tom visited Paul Williamson Cars to pick up the second future competition car of his trip. Before that though, he enjoyed his hotel stay and made sure he was fuelled up and ready for another day of car collecting!

The second competition car that Tom went on to collect was our 1973 Triumph Spitfire. This made the journey back with Tom and is now in the workshop waiting for the team to assess it ready for it to be won in the very near future.

A Big Delivery

There are always classic vehicles coming into the Bridge Classic Cars workshop. However, every now and again, multiple vehicles all show up at the same time.

After a successful day at auction recently, we received a delivery of several vehicles that we were very excited to welcome into the workshop. In the back of the car transporter was our 1958 Austin Healey Sprite, our 1969 Morgan 4/4 1600, and our 1998 Lotus Elise S1.

We are looking forward to sharing more information on these beautiful classic cars very soon!

A Classic Frogeye

Another stunning car has arrived at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop in the form of our 1958 Austin Healey Sprite, commonly known as the Frogeye thanks to its prominent bonnet-mounted headlights.

After initially being supplied to America, it came back to the UK in 1963. The previous owner has owned the car since 2008 and has completed various modifications to the engine and gearbox to help make it more usable on modern roads.

Our 1958 Austin Healey Sprite is a beautiful classic car and we are very excited to have it with us in the workshop.
