Description:

1987 Ford Ranger

Ford Ranger Pickup Converted to all Electric. Truck was a home conversion, done by a very capable older fellow (not me) in 2005 who did a very professional job both engineering wise and fit and finish. Circuits are labeled on the vehicle and he made a detailed schematic. The bed tilts back in a very ingenious way (hood latches and spring assist) to access 16 of the batteries located under the bed. Extra leaf springs added to the rear to handle the additional weight. The truck is still capable of handling a 1,000lb load, but it does drive like a loaded truck even when empty. The other four 6v batteries are in the engine compartment, along with a separate 12v battery which has it's own on-board 120 dc to 12v dc charger. This battery powers all 12v systems on the vehicle and is thereby charged from the 120v battery system. Vehicle has power brakes via a 12v vacuum pump and small reservoir, and power steering (when the electric motor is spinning) using the factory power steering pump.
Body is in good condition, no rust but original paint is tired/faded. Red cloth seats and carpeted floor - in good condition. Plugs into charger that's included and needs 220v or 110v power. Powered with 20, 6v AGM Deka golf car batteries. Full charge Range of travel = 30+ miles with all good batteries and very conservative driving. Vehicle is currently operational but batteries will need to be replaced soon. Will go 60 mph but is not meant for highway travel! Better used for short distances around town. Heat, but no A/C.
It has been very handy for farm use, and a quick trip to town.
For $1 a mile, will deliver to you! Please call with any questions, I will answer to the best of my ability 772-559-2151
