1981 Ford Escort

Fully electric 1981 Ford Escort. I think this car may have been a Ford electric prototype. The gasoline engine was replaced with a 50 HP electric motor and mated to the manual transmission. It is a very clean car with only 20,608 miles on it. I bought it from a gentleman who drove it for some time and was going to upgrade the lead acid batteries and had something come up so he had to sell it. I bought it without the batteries with the intention of replacing them with either nickel metal hydride batteries or lithium batteries. It has been one of those projects I keep wanting to get to but never have time so I am selling it to make more room for some of my other projects. My loss is your gain, this is a very unique car and with some new batteries could be up and running pretty quick. The under-body was undercoated in the past and is very clean. The paint is a bit faded, but I think a good buffing would get it looking near new. No significant dings or dents and only 2 spots of very minor rust showing in the paint...I took closeup pictures of these areas and included them (they are the last 2 pictures). I never thought I would see a car this age look as nice as this one, and it is electric on top of that. Will help arrange shipping to anywhere in the lower 48 states. You may also come pick it up if you would like.
