Eagle Eagle Cars Limited was an English company, based in Lancing, West Sussex, originally operated by Allen Breeze, although it has undergone a number of ownership changes since. Originally making a Jeep lookalike called the RV, between 1981 and 1998 they built several iterations of a gull-winged car called the Eagle SS. The SS was based on an American kit car called the Cimbria (itself based on the earlier Sterling, which in turn was a copy of the British Nova), and was brought to the UK by Tim Dutton (of Dutton Cars). In 1988 Eagle Cars moved inland, to nearby Storrington.
Eagle Cars' fibreglass-bodied Jeep-lookalike, the Jeep RV, was built around Ford Cortina parts. There was also an Eagle 4x4 (Range Rover, later also Daihatsu based), unusual for kit cars in that it had four-wheel drive. The RV used an X-braced ladder frame and the expected Ford engines, although the Ford Capri's 3-litre V6 and the usual Rover V8 were also possible fitments, while the Eagle 4x4 was available with a whole host of different engines from Rover, Mercedes, Peugeot, or Ford. Later a Ford Sierra-based two-seater, two-door convertible (also available with a hardtop) called the Milan 2 Plus. This was first seen in 1988 and was co-developed with "Milan-Automobile" of Remscheid, Germany. Since it accepted all Sierra underpinnings, the Milan was available with engines ranging from 1.6 to 2.8 litres and with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. During the eighties, an RV Jeep Series II was developed, using more modern Ford Sierra parts.
Eagle's last development was the Standetto, a Ferrari F40 lookalike based on the Pontiac Fiero.
