Title: Electric Lancias?
Post by: brian on 03 July, 2021, 04:29:07 PM
A couple of days ago there was an article in the i with a headlne "The benefits of converting your classic car to electric". There is a company in Bridgnorth doing just that and the writer saw an E-type with an electric motor but keeping clutch and gearbox. All conversions apparently reversible.
No mention of cost!!
I suspect we might have to go. along this route eventually.

Not me at about 30k, and my Fulvia wouldn't be the same without its narrow angle V4, so even if I could afford to do this I wouldn't under any circumstances, I'd sooner give her to a museum as a static exhibit.

I think the Fulvia Coupe done by the company on TV (Quest?) has been mentioned on here. Plenty of go and handled OK but sounded like a milk float of course.

Brian - you'd brew your own fuel in preference!!!

Never, never, never on my Flavia !
Id rather stick pins in my eyes rather than converting it to electric power.
