We may have something to give you a jolt at MotoeXotica Classic Cars, a 1969 Saab 96 that has been converted to electric power. This example reportedly has fewer than 20,000 miles and a 60-mile range. This conversion took place in 2009 and operates and functions property today. Great city or beach car, like no other. Finished in white, the car's paint and trim are in overall very good order, with some blemishes visible at close range. The body is straight and solid, the chrome bumpers fit to the body tightly. The paint does have orange peel present. The rear quarter windows pop out for ventilation. The stock fuel tank has been removed while a charging system cooling fan vents waste heat via an exhaust port just after of the driver's door. This Saab rolls on radials tires, size 165R15 at every corner. Each one is mounted on white, vented steel wheels with chrome factory center caps. The tires are in very good condition while the wheels are in good, original shape. Reportedly the vehicle's springs were adjusted to compensate for the conversion's additional weight and the current ride height is said to match the stock setup. Motive power for this Saab is a 203-06-4001 DC motor from Advanced DC Motors, Inc., paired with 10 Trojan T-1275 batteries and sends power to the car's front wheels. The column-mounted four-speed manual transmission functions well without a clutch pedal, lifting off the accelerator to facilitate gear changes. The seller stated that the drive system is chargeable by connecting a port behind the fuel filler door to a regular AC outlet. Besides its 60-mile range, the car has a top speed of approx 60 mph. This is a very unique car that would be perfect to get around the city, beach or golf course. Inside, the car's gray cloth seats with black vinyl side bolsters are in very good shape while the carpetless flooring, neutral headliner, two-spoke steering wheel, white metal dashboard and inner doors are in satisfactory order, though the driver's inner door liner is missing. The instrument panel shows a battery charge indicator, a voltmeter, an ammeter and a 120-mph speedometer. The seller stated that the headlights, turn signals, windshield wipers and emergency brake have their own electrical system and are functional.Documentation includes Saab Owner's Manual, a Haynes shop manual for this model and a large blue Build Book binder plus a logbook containing receipts and operating instructions.
