A  Press release by Bridge Garage regarding their Helmingham Hall Jaguar MK1 Giveaway


Local Classic Car Restoration Company Scheduled To Give Away Classic Jaguar At Helmingham Hall Car Show


Bridge Classic Cars, a local family-run classic car restoration company are scheduled to give away a classic Jaguar at Helmingham Festival of Classic & Sports Cars this August for under £10.

 The 1959 Jaguar MK1 will be up as a raffle style prize with tickets priced at £9 and limited to 5555 entries. Bridge Classic Cars will hold their live draw on the afternoon of Helmingham Hall’s Classic and Sports Car Show on 1st August and will have a stand set up on Oak Avenue at the event all day to showcase their classic car restoration work.

The 3.4 litre Jaguar which comes with overdrive, is finished in a deep Claret Red with a beautiful biscuit interior. The Jaguar MK1 saloon was produced between 1955 and 1959, making today's MK1 one of the latest in the series. In October 1959 the MK1 was replaced by the MK2. Although the MK1 was originally produced with a 2.4 litre engine, in 1957 they transitioned to a more powerful 3.4 that, when fitted with overdrive, would allow the car to reach 60pmh in just 9.1 seconds. Unfortunately a major factory fire destroyed the 3.4 litre production facility, making this car even rarer.

Bridge Classic Cars have been running their competitions for just over a year and in the last 12 months, they have produced over 40 winners and given away approximately £1million worth of classic motors including MGB’s, Mini’s, Rolls Royce’s, Triumphs and many more.

 Bridge Classic Cars is owned and run by father and son duo, Gordon and Craig Ranson who set up the business in 2004 as a modern car sales service but later decided to transition Bridge to classics cars and follow their combined passion for classic and vintage motors.

 The company works on all classic and vintage cars but has recently become known as the UK Jensen 541 specialists, welcoming in large amounts of Jensen restoration projects from all over the UK and internationally.

 Nestled in the small town of Pettistree in Suffolk, the family-run company makes it their business to not only get the cars up and running but to restore classic motors back to their golden glory. Their workshop includes a trim shop, paint shop, fabrication bay, engine shop and main workspace, meaning everything is done under one roof to ensure the highest quality restorations. From nut and bolt custom restorations to recommissions and services, Bridge Classic Cars provides a multitude of services carried out by their team of skilled classic car technicians.

 The Jaguar MKI is live on the Bridge Classic Car Competitions website from the 18th June until the 1st August. You can check it out here: www.bridgeclassiccarscompetitions.co.uk/product/mk1-jag
