Yesterday I posted an early version Eagle SS built on a VW Beetle chassis. Turns out Paul and Derek are selling their newer model Eagle SS Mk3 — perhaps the nicest example of an Eagle SS currently on the road, and a TEAC Sportscars demonstrator (the new manufacturer) — I thought it should be added as well. He’s asking only £4,500 — if I was in the UK (he’s in Newtown, Powys) I’d snatch this up in an instant.
His Mk3 was originally built as a turnkey in 1986 by Eagle Cars, around a front-engine Ford Cortina setup with a 2.1L Pinto engine (built by Kabota using machined V6 pistons, steel con rods, lightened and balanced crank, lightened and balanced fly wheel, twin choke Webber, and more)… As I mentioned before, I’m really impressed they managed to create such a sleek car around a front engine setup (the hood is custom to fit the bigger engine). After ten years of use it sat in a garage until 2006, when Paul and his father got it cleaned up, improved, and running again. In addition to the engine work, the car is has redesigned shaped side skirts and a rear tail spoiler, and the vestigial rear engine vents have been removed.
