Eagle from license, no type.
But I don't know if the plate is real.
It's for sure a classic-licensplate.

I think this is a Jeep CJ-7.

wonder what is the stupid idea behind it, CJ Jeep are cheap enough , why would you want a kitcar that looks like it when the original is perfectly available :/

Thought a kitcar looking like some Lamborghini/ Ferrari or soem other unreacheable supercar etc makes much more sense

^My thought exactly. Are Jeep CJs really that rare and/or expensive in the UK?

On the 4th thumbnail you can see the rear wheels block when it is making an emerency stop.

I think it's just the fun of putting it together by yourself.

They make a certain amount of sense for people whose favourite Cortina/Taunus/Sierra/whatever has just died/failed its MOT or equivalent annual test on structural/rust faults - rebody it cheaply. Insurance also likely to stay cheap, which is a big problem for young drivers in UK - a proper Jeep could be out of reach. Strange coincidence - I saw a similar Jago Jeep conversion today in supermarket car park - obvious fake, but looked reasonable for what it was.

In the 80s? Yes. The first popular Jeep in the UK was the Cherokee in the mid-nineties. Official imports of the CJ-7 to the UK were limited and the cars that were imported would have been very expensive (whereas these were cheap to build). There's also the fact that they were very expensive to run compared to these (which were Ford Cortina-based mostly). It was also fairly successful in terms of numbers of kits made (around 1,100 according to Steve Hole's A-Z of Kit Cars which is very, very big for the UK kit car industry). The Jago Geep was even more popular than that.
