That is fantastic. They are just a beautiful car. Well done Petrolicious.

Interesting video, beautifully shot, but I wish it would have gone into detail regarding how they alter the cars. Much like what Singer does with Porsche’s, I don’t so much consider Eagle’s work a restoration as much as it is a resto-mod. Beautiful cars, but I am interested in the thought process of the modifications that make it an Eagle E Type

I agree, Eagle’s a well known company with plenty written about it in the past so there wasn’t really anything new. If I ever win the lottery I quite fancy the idea of seeing if Eagle could do a Series III V12 based on the idea that Jaguar had decided to make the Series III as a hard core Daytona or Ghibli rival rather than the relatively soft cruiser that it was.

I am lucky enough to own a Series 2 roadster from Eagle.
When I first saw the car in 2013, it was in original condition, but as it hadn’t really been driven much over the prior 30 years, Henry and I had a good discussion about how I intended to use the car (I wanted a car I could reliably take in touring holidays), and therefore what in his and Paul Brace’s view might be ‘upgraded’.
Their deep knowledge of E types and their susceptibilities helped identify a modest list of reliability upgrades which were undertaken over 2013/14, and I have since completed about 14,000 miles, including a trans-European 2,700 miles tour over three weeks last summer. It didn’t miss a beat.
These guys really know their stuff.
