1955 Ford F-100 for Electric Conversion?

1955 Ford F-100 for Electric Conversion?

I have an old 1955 Ford F-100 pick-up that I want to convert to electric. What would be a good AC motor selection for this conversion if I wanted speed?

Hi, Mark!

What a lovely old truck!

(What a HEAVY old brick. Well, I don't blame you, because I couldn't resist it, either; )

Um, you're gonna want a big old AC motor, and line that bed with light lithium batteries. You already know you need a 3-phase motor. You're looking for intermittent duty rather than continuous duty (if you can find it).

An Azure Dynamics AC-55 ought to do the trick. And a whole lotta volts!
