The name Eagle is synonymous the world over with Jaguar E-Types A remarkable achievement for such a small company situated in rural Sussex and established in 1984. Like many similar classic car companies Eagle has achieved its pre-eminence through the single minded, or what some would call ‘total’, dedication of one man for a make or model of car. In this case Eagle’s owner and managing director, Henry Pearman, and his life-long love affair with the Jaguar marque and the E-Type model in particular. But what separates Henry and his long established team at Eagle from other specialists with a similar passion, is the Eagle E-Type. While, like some others, they successfully race, rally, develop upgrades and of course deal in their chosen car, they have gone a step further. Since 1991 Eagle has been re-manufacturing the E-Type to a modern day standard of quality that has resulted in a leading automotive authority referring to it as "probably the best built handmade car in the world." High praise indeed, especially since the authority in this instance was the BBC’s Quentin Willson, after featuring Eagle on BBC TV’s Top Gear programme in the late 1990's.
