More Fabrication

Chris has been working on our 1951 Austin Devon in the fabrication bay.

He has test fitted the door, test fitted the upper A-pillar outer panel, welded up the rear bottom of the cab, and fabricated new body to chassis mount gussets.

He then melted out the lead, removed the roof, repaired the c channel frame, and mounted the frame up to the chassis.

Second-Hand Car Parts

Restoring classic vehicles, like our 1951 Austin Devon Pickup, can be extremely challenging when a hard-to-find piece, like the Austin badge, seems to be impossible to find. Second-hand car parts can be a great solution, and with a range of online marketplaces like eBay, that missing piece might just be found!

Gordon was looking for a replacement Austin badge for our classic Devon. The original was broken and in poor condition. However, finding a replacement proved much more difficult than expected. After eventually finding one on eBay, we were shocked at how good the new one looked. If it wasn’t for someone keeping this badge (potentially for decades), we wouldn’t have been able to replace the old one.


This is a fantastic example of how passionate people can be about their cars. Not only that, but the story behind each classic car adds to its character, making it much more likely for parts to be kept and sold as second-hand car parts.

What makes these discoveries even more exciting is their affordability. Rare parts often cost a fortune when new or might not even be available at all. In the second-hand market, these otherwise unobtainable parts are much more accessible without compromising quality or authenticity.

While it can take longer to find the part you need, websites like eBay and MyClassics can be where you find exactly what you are looking for to get your classic car back on the road.


Other Progress

As well as the new badge, our Austin Devon Pickup has also had new interior door panels made by the Bridge Classic Cars interior trim team. After removing the old covers and metal trims from the door panels, Brian used the old panels to mark out the new ones on hardboard. He then cut out the new panels, cutting all the necessary holes out too.

Devon Progress

Several technicians have been working on our 1951 Austin Devon Pickup recently.

The wing has been repaired along with the headlight bowl. Multiple components have also been sent off to be re-chromed, while others have been sent to the sandblasters.

The doors have also been repaired in the fabrication bay.

Off To The Sandblasters

Our 1951 Austin Devon PickUp has left the Bridge Classic Cars workshop to head to the sandblasters.

Once sandblasting has been completed, the workshop team will be able to assess the vehicle and decide the next course of action to bring it back to its former glory.

An Austin Pickup Arrives

There have been several new arrivals in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop over the last few days. The latest addition is our 1951 Austin Pickup.

It’s obvious that it needs to go through a restoration and the workshop team will be having a closer look at the vehicle to determine the level of work required to bring it back to its former glory.
