Our 1988 Ford Escort RS Turbo has had quite the interesting back story.
Originally from the sunny south of France, it was picked up and restored by its second owner Sean Swift who also bought the white escort pictured below but found it was in such a poor condition that restoring it would leave him at a loss.
Sean then brought them back to the UK where he started his beautiful renovation of the grey RS Turbo which made its way to us, with very few miles on the clock.
Unsurprisingly we’ve had multiple offers from the team to run it in…
This is how the RS used to look before is renovation:
And this is how it looks now, after Sean’s clever handiwork and a photoshoot with our marketing team:
We’re always excited to see fresh classics arrive at our workshop here at Bridge Classic Cars. So, here’s a first look at the new arrivals joining us this week.
First up, it’s our 1996 Nissan Patrol. In for a paint job, re-chroming and body preparation.
Our 1958 Jensen 541R has arrived with us with gearbox issues. The specialist technical team are on hand to diagnose the faults and get her back up and running.
These Ford Escorts are both sitting comfortably at the Hanger in Bentwaters.
The light blue Ford Escort RS Turbo belongs to a customer, she’s being kept with us in our secure storage facility where we watch over many of our customers prized possessions.
The other is our very popular 1979 Ford Escort RS2000 that believe it or not, is a competition prize where one lucky winner will be handed the keys to this beauty! For more information on our competitions click here.
Lastly, this stunning 1971 Triumph Spitfire has come to us to sort a couple of problems out. Firstly, to investigate a strange noise coming from the engine along with fixing some oil leaks.
It’s great to follow a classic cars journey from their first day with us, to when we say goodbye.
