David Heacock's 1985 Avanti EV Conversion (In Process)
Updated 4/15/10.

DISCLAIMER: The following information is provided for informational purposes only. This is the first EV conversion I have attempted and anyone considering the conversion process should first consult with professionals and others who have already completed a project. A good place to start would be to attend a local meeting of the Electric Automobile Association. Keep in mind that an EV conversion project involves a number of safety issues and can become expensive.
