Ive finally sold the Eagle RV, it was a shame to see it drive away but I just
didnt use it enough to justify keeping it. Between the last 2 MOT's I did
500 miles so whats the point, it wasnt being kept in a garage so it would have
only fallen apart.|
Enough of me justfying selling it Ill continue with the description. The running gear comes from a Ford Cortina and has its own chassis with a fibre glass body. It was a completely rebuilt sumer 2000, I stripped it down to the Chasssis and worked up, we fitted a 5 speed gearbox replaced the intire exhaust pipe, new clutch, new brake linings. We fitted a fuel tank with new fuel/return lines. The tub was resprayed diamond white and looks great in the sunshine, we also rewired it and fitted a cortina dash.(If youve ever had to take out a steel cortina dash you can imagine the job we had)
I think I got a littl carried away as I never intended to go as far as I did, but then now its a fine example of jeep it makes it worth while. I started in the begining of Febuary 2000 and final got it MOT'd on the 14th of July 2000, the there was a few more weeks spent finishing it off. It went through the next years MOT with no problems at all.
All I have left now are spare parts littering the place (forgot to give them to the new owner... hmm maybe I can sell them to them later?) and a few pictures, click on the picture for a bigger picture
The only good thing about selling it is that the girl I sold it to, loves it to bits and lives not far from me so I get to see it from time to time. She uses it every day and has fitted a new hardtop the last time I saw it. She also managed to shake the radiator off the mounts and take all the fins off the fixed fan too!
I think this will be the last update to this page, as I cant see the point of it really! If you have any questions about the RV send me a email, my address is below, and I'll see what I can remember.
