55 Ford F-100 Electric Car 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?
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!
