I’m the fourth owner of this car and have taken care of it for over 15 years. In 2008 I decided to convert it to electric as a way to beat rising gas prices. We drove it around until late 2012 when the batteries started to get tired. At that point all batteries were recycled and the car was put in storage. A few things worthy of note, BATTERIES ARE NOT INCLUDED! Five batteries are needed to make it run and four more can be installed in the trunk area to increase the range. Each battery bank has its own relay, control circuit, and charging system. The left front brake cylinder leaked which swelled the shoes and the drum was removed in order to move the car, so it has NO BRAKES and will need some work in that area. The sound system (shown in some pictures) has been removed and is not included. Otherwise this 60+ year old car is in pretty good shape.
In electric form it was featured in Triumph World Magazine (UK) June/July 2011 issue and was also well received as a technical project presentation to my R&D group at a large electronics corporation, from which I am now retired.
Fairly extensive literature and documentation (schematics, parts list, shop manuals, etc.) are included in the sale along with software, interconnect cable for the programmable controller, plus any spare parts I might have lying around. There are also many pictures of the conversion process and other misc stuff.
Basic technical details can be found at evalbum(dot)com/2361 which has links to short videos of it running and being built. My hope is to find it a worthy home with a technically competent individual(s) who can bring it back to life in any form they may choose. I was thinking of installing a mid sized motorcycle engine but I already have to many projects. This is a no smog vehicle due to its age and has always been registered as original. Presently it on non-op.
