As part of the wiring clean-up on the 1979 Porsche 911, the Bridge Classic Cars team have replaced a set of relays in the classic aircooled 911.
The team noticed the relays which control the horn on the 911 were intermittently working, so new ones were placed on order and fitted to the car as part of the wiring work the team have been doing to the car before it heads to its new home.
On test, all was working on the car after the replacements were fitted.
As part of the pre-delivery work on the 1979 Porsche 911 Targa, the workshop team have cleaned up some of the unneeded wiring under the bonnet of the classic aircooled 911.
Jon, one of Bridge Classic Cars restoration technicians, has carefully gone through each wire and system from the main fuse box to check the harness but also remove any redundant wiring to simplify the cars electrical system for its new owner.
After chasing the loom through the car, Jon reformed a couple of small wiring repairs to the main harness before testing each system individually and checking for continuity throughout the car front to back.
Last night, the Bridge Classic Cars team got together to find out who the lucky new owner of the 1979 Porsche 911 Targa was!
The live stream started off a touch different this time, with Craig and Freddie showing our followers something very exciting that’s coming up soon and letting them witness and experience this amazing red and white beast… but we can’t give too much of it away on here just yet.
The live stream then moved on to Freddie and Craig having a look around our competitions building and giving our views several sneak peeks of what’s coming up very soon. Also, our show coming next Sunday! Head over to our show page here for more information.
Then, at 10 past 7, the competition closed. Only 240 of the 4750 tickets remained at the end and the entry list was made ready for the team.
Then, it was time to run the draw.
As always, we use a Google Random Number Generator to determine the winner. Craig test the system to show the viewers and then it was time. Setting the criteria between 1 and 4750, with one simple click – the fate of the 911 was decided.
The whir of numbers stopped as quickly as it had started. the screen showed 1766. Checking the entry list, that number had been assigned to Richard Smyth.
The team gave Richard a call – as we do with all our live draws. He answered and chatted with Craig letting us into an amazing story. He had wanted a Porsche 911 since he was 9 years old and now, he has his very own 1979 Porsche 911 Targa.
There’s something about the sound and feel of an air-cooled 911. The throbbing, visceral soundtrack, the direct and poised steering and most of all, that iconic shape. This 1979 Porsche 911 is a Targa. It’s essentially a hardtop with a removable roof panel to let the outside in as you become one with the B-Road that lays before you.
That was what the team all took away from shooting this classic 911. Finished in iconic Guards Red with a unique tan and maroon interior, this sports car is certainly as striking as it is timeless. After being given a full check-over by the Bridge Classic Cars workshop, it was given the green light to head over to The Hangar, the base of operations for all of our filming.
The 3-litre Flat-Six pulled strongly across the ex-Airforce base. The car just wanted to run, its long gearing and sensational soundtrack make every occasion in the car special. The signature good looks of the 2nd generation 911 were perfect in the Suffolk summer sun as it made lap after lap of the base without any fuss, this is truly a car for all seasons.
And now, Bridge Classic Cars wants to give one lucky winner the chance of experiencing this magnificent piece of automotive design and engineering forever! That’s right. You could win this 1979 Porsche 911 Targa!
