65' Volvo 544 Electric Car Conversion

by Kit Venable

I have a 65' 544 Volvo that I've loved, painted, moved 3x's, and want to convert it to electric.
It has a 4 cyn, duel SU carb, and has all the looks of a old gangster car.
Can or has this already been done?

Hi, Kit -
Actually, yeah.

There's a guy up in Seattle working on one of these, or maybe by the time you read this he'll be done with it. He's building a 72v DC system.

You can read about this Volvo electric car conversion on the EV Photo Album here. The owner's email is on that page, too, if you want to talk to him about it.

Best of luck converting your baby to electric!
