1982 Datsun Other 2+2This sale is for a 1982 Lectra car 2+2 with only 2200 original miles.. This sale is for the BODY/CHASSIS ONLY and DOES NOT include the original electric motor, drive, or batteries. The body is in moderate condition for its age. Although the car had little actual wear with only 2200 miles on it, the interior has heavy sun damage to the seats. Also since it was little used there is no rust to the floor panels but some rusting has started under the bumpers and a couple of other places as shown in the pictures.
This Lectra 2+2 was sold to an executive/engineer for testing and spent its life sitting in the Arizona sun accounting for the low low miles put on the car. The electric motor was eventually removed to other purposes since the car delivered a range of only 45 miles between charges. Lectra cars were early pioneers in electric car
The Lectra Car Company production was located in Las Vegas, Nevada and operated for about 2 years. Their operation converted various models of new Datsun cars into electric vehicles. The total number of Lectra cars produced was less than 1000 before the company became defunct. Some of the Lectra car history may be found on the internet. In particular see youtube videos 'A New Era: Al Sawyer and Lectra Motors' and other titles mentioning 'Al Sawyer' or 'Lectra Motors.'
Probably very few Lectra cars exist today which is why you have never heard of them before. This 2+2 would be an excellent candidate for the installation of a newer and more efficient aftermarket electric motor with high capacity battery package as are currently available. The result should be a very rare electric car with modern range and performance.
