Description for Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1964

1964 EV Rat Bug EVWEST Electric ConversionPrice: 23950
Sweet little electric bug in original Anthracite. It's more of a patina rat at the moment. I was planning on bringing it back closer to original with the EV kit already installed, but have other things taking me away from this endeavor. It is ready to roll with so many things done that would total two times my asking price.
A couple videos from July 22, 2017.

Super smooth, fast acceleration, quick braking, and amazing handling potential. Everything works but the wipers are not hooked up. Also have a sunroof clip, stock set of doors with windows, one piece window kits and a donor hood. These extra parts come with the car, but will require some restoration work of course. As can seen by the photos there is no interior. The car is fairly straight with no signs of any major accidents and no cancerous rust. There is some patina since that was the look the previous owner and I was after with this bug. This is a sweet deal if you consider the price to convert is 19k plus 10k to install and then the price of a 1964 bug. I purchased the car last October and have a clear title in my name. I will ship anywhere at your expense. I'm sure there is much more that I'm forgetting...check this one out! You'll never look back!

Specified range is 120 miles, however this varies based on how heavy your foot is. I've driven highway speeds on a 100 mile round trip, but don't watch the efficiency, feather the pedal or take too many trips where I'm watching my mileage or getting range anxiety since all my needs are within a few miles of my house. I charge up at night when the rates are lower with an estimated cost of $5 at off peak charge times. You can add more batteries to suit your range needs. There is a local fellow with a 200 mile range for his bug and I know a crew cab that gets 220, so there are options or you can charge along the way if you need some extra range.
