This is a phase 2 Eagle ss that I brought in 1995 without an engine. I brought a gearbox conversion plate from volksworld magazine. I had to also fit a slightly newer type beetle gearbox which had a slightly different clutch release bearing that included a thrust bearing guild tube.
I used a modified Austin mini wiring loom along with all the mini switches and wiper motor. I also fitted a mini heater but it was coupled up to vw passat heater controls.
I fitted new black carpets and the dashboard which had been previously modified I had covered in black vinyl. The seats were brown and beige cobra or corbeau buckets. The headlamps were rectangular and recessed into the wings, I spoke to eagle cars about these and they told me that this wouldn't have been a factory fit but a modification carried out by someone at a later date.
The car went well with it's 90 HP engine as it was very light. I sold the car to someone in Lowestoft in 1997.
