Out & About – 1973 Triumph TR6 in France

The 1973 Triumph TR6, which was restored in-house at the Bridge Classic Cars Suffolk HQ, has been out on its travels recently!

The car has been used on holiday in France by its owner and looks like the perfect companion for a countryside jaunt.

We love seeing our cars out there in the world being used and enjoyed!

Heating Up – Fixing the Heater on the 1968 Triumph TR5

The technicians in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop have been working on getting the heater system working properly on the 1968 Triumph TR5.

Jon found the cable which controls the heater wasn’t working but also that the heater flaps had almost seized in the dashboard. Jon freed up the flaps and found the heater box had distorted slightly not allowing the direction flap to move freely but after some adjustments all was ok and then could work on replacing the heater cable into the dash.

Wiring Repairs – Fixing Some Wiring Issues with the 1968 Triumph TR5

The next step on the 1968 Triumph TR5 in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop was to resolve a few wiring issues.

Our technician Dave went through several of the systems and found a continuity issue with some of the wiring around the gearbox. The team traced it to a broken connector which was replaced and tested.

Straight & Narrow – Suspension Bushes and Alignment on the 1955 Triumph TR2

The 1955 Triumph TR2 has had a few bits of suspension work carried out by the Bridge Classic Cars team.

The team have replaced the offside-front upper arm bushes due to a bit of play in the bush itself and also replaced the outer track rod end on the same side of the car. Jon, one of our technicians, carefully removed the old bushes from the car to make way for the new replacements.

Because the team had unbolted and moved components from the front suspension, it is crucial to have the car realigned. So, Jon millimetre by millimetre adjusted the toe of the classic Triumph until it was perfectly within spec and even on both sides of the car. After road test, all was ok.

Coming Soon – 1981 Triumph TR7 V8

Along with that, the trim team will be taking a look at the passenger seat to see if anything can be done to it.

The Winners Circle – Winner of the 1973 Triumph TR6 Comes to Collect Her Car

Yesterday, the Bridge Classic Cars team welcomed Valerie to our restoration workshop to collect her 1973 Triumph TR6 she won through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.

Valerie came down to take delivery of her beautiful Saffron Yellow TR6 and to have a look around our workshops at some of our restoration projects. Whilst she was collecting the car, we found out it was Valerie’s birthday! What a day it would be. Valerie, her son and her partner made the trip from Norfolk to collect the car and drive it home.

It’s always an incredible part of the story when you get to see someone’s reaction for the first time seeing their new classic in the metal for the first time. As Valerie said, the morning after she had won the car she still couldn’t believe it and had to ask if she had actually won it. This isn’t the first car Valerie won however, in 1991 she won a brand new Rover Metro through a competition by Heinz.

Still, this TR6 is a beautiful addition to the family so this morning Valerie sent us over a photo of ”Caramac” alongside the family Delorean in its new home.

We all want to wish Valerie many happy miles and hope she enjoys her new classic.

And here’s the video of Valerie collecting her 1973 Triumph TR6 from the Bridge Classic Cars workshop:

Behind the Scenes – Shooting our 1973 Triumph TR6

The Bridge Classic Cars Competitions teams have been out at our filming location to shoot our latest competition car, a 1973 Triumph TR6.

The team picked a perfect day for it. A series of delicate clouds against the pale blue sky above the Suffolk countryside was the perfect backdrop for the Saffron Yellow classic Triumph. Before this, the Bridge Classic Cars restoration workshop went over the car from head to toe in order to give it the green light to be driven around our filming location.

As the Suffolk air filled with the raspy sounds of the straight-4, the bright yellow drop-top whipped around with an air of excitement and freedom. A tool purely for the joy of driving. And now, we want you to experience this wonderful feeling.

Just head over to the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions now and enter for your chance to win this absolutely stunning 1973 Triumph TR6.
